It is normal for the ratings of a mostrar to drop constantly after a few years (please, show-runners, let the story end soon). But the extend will depend on how many story holes and bended basic story rules there will continue to be (and they also lost much viewer interest por keeping to pretend that SE were not restlessly over romantically, what they have obviously already been for a long time). And the biggest influence will have how soon Delena will be reunited, and that means when Damon and Bonnie will come back as well as when DE will continue with their relationship. The writers do a great job with the relationships and the characters, but the storylines have never been that good. The fans don’t seem to be much interested in the new lives of people o about what happens to dead supernaturals without the other side and such things, and it is even dicho that the siguiente phase won’t be much about romantic relationships. That the audience has to get used again to a new situation after a time jump doesn’t help, but calling S6 the final o at least pre-final season would attract old and new viewers. And there definitely should also be más dicho about the relationships and characters, especially the por far most beloved Delena amor story and Damon’s character development (both combined the corazón and soul of the story), because there are still so many fears and so much pessimism despite the clear direction of the story.
Yes. Definitely yes. Not because they killed off Damon and Bonnie (they're obviously going to come back, one way o another, let's not kid ourselves here), but because the quality has been slipping. I like this mostrar and all but you've got to admit from season 3 onwards, it wasn't very good. Season 4 at least had the whole 'Elena's transition' theme to hold it together. This season jumped from Silas, Qetsiyah and the doppelganger prophecy to Katherine and the Travelers to the Augustine ordeal to the Travelers planning to destroy magic o whatever. There was no thread linking them, except for the Travelers but that wasn't obvious enough. So this season felt disconnected to me. I'm not sure the mostrar can survive past season 6, so here's hoping they'll envolver, abrigo things up soon before no one is interested anymore o worse, it gets canceled.
It could but I hope not. Its sure that Damon and Bonnie will be back and I don't know about anyone else but I'm curious to know where Damon and Bonnie went and how the gang is planning to bring them back :)
It depends on which direction they take the mostrar in, the más interesting it is then the rating will possibly sky-rocket. But if not then we're facing the possibility of the mostrar getting canceled. Either way, I'm watching till the very end.
I'm not sure, but either way, it doesn't really matter. TVD is one of the most popular mostrar on the network, so even if the ratings are terrible, they won't cancelar the mostrar siguiente season, and there will be at least a short final season.
