BURBANK, CA (May 25, 2016) - Put the drama on fast-forward with another season of epic thrills and romance as Warner Bros. Home Entertainment released The Vampire Diaries: The Complete Seventh Season on Blu-ray and DVD on August 16, 2016. Fans can devour all 22 one-hour episodes from season seven and feast on an hour of gripping extras -- including a brand-new featurette, the 2015 Comic-Con panel, deleted scenes, and a gag reel.
In season seven, after saying an emotional goodbye to Elena Gilbert, some characters will recover while others falter. As Damon and Stefan’s mother, Lily (guest star Annie Wersching - 24, Bosch), tries to drive a wedge between the Salvatore brothers, hope remains that Stefan and Caroline’s love story is tough enough to survive. Damon will do whatever it takes to take down his mother and her band of Heretics, and when Bonnie and Enzo both try to decide where their loyalties lie, a surprising relationship will evolve. Plus, with Mystic Falls in disarray and the arrival of the Heretics -- who are set on retaliation and mayhem -- the suspense will be stronger than ever. Guest stars this season also include Todd Lasance (Spartacus: War of the Damned), Elizabeth Blackmore (Evil Dead), Scarlett Byrne (Harry Potter films), Teressa Liane (Into the Badlands), Leslie-Ann Huff (The Originals) and others.
With Blu-ray's unsurpassed picture and sound, The Vampire Diaries: The Complete Seventh Season Blu-ray release will include 1080p Full HD Video with DTS-HD Master Audio for English 5.1.

Thoughts About the Vampire Diaries:
For years I read Amanda Ashley's series about vampires so when I had the opportunity to watch this series for me it was like everything that I loved about those books had come to life. Now that we are in season seven it was no surprise that I had to go read the series of books by L. J. Smith that this series was based on. Often I find that movies, shows, etc do not do an author's work justice but this series is one of the few that has not only done her work justice but has built upon and enhanced it. This season doesn't disappoint. Even with Elena missing this season has all the twists and turns that we have come to expect from this very talented and sexy cast. If you haven't watched it yet, it's time to binge watch before season eight begins. Rumor has it that this may be the final season. Please say it isn't so!
