20 TV Shows Set In Perpetual Fall
The Vampire Diaries
Like in The Secret Circle, L.J. Smith has created the perfect autumnal small town. The Vampire Diaries‘ titular vamps stalk around cemeteries with falling foliage, high school car washes, and gorgeous Antebellum estates for eight seasons, while the leaves are somehow eternally orange and the characters always seem to be going back-to-school. This vampire love story isn’t just the television version of a cozy sweater because of its supernatural elements, it’s because showrunner Julie Plec and company managed to create a setting that balanced modernity and history, love and loss, and the warm embrace of family.
