20 Shows That Paved The Way For Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina
The Vampire Diaries
Just like Chilling Adventures probably wouldn’t exist without The Vampire Diaries, Julie Plec‘s obessable drama owes a lot to Supernatural. The dark, demon-hunting series was aimed at a young male demographic, but we’d bet good money that CW execs greenlit The Vampire Diaries after seeing how many
hormonal teen girls were tuning in to see the Winchester brothers unravel the show’s evangelical mysteries. The Vampire Diaries became The CW’s first mega-popular supernatural teen soap, focusing on romance and interpersonal relationships more than its actual mysteries, and made a strong case for any future supernatural soaps’ success.
