The creator of The Vampire Diaries is working on a new Netflix show.
Julie Plec will be leaving vampires behind for her next television series, which is based on Amy Chozick's book Chasing Hillary.
Chozick and Plec will write The Girls on the Bus, which is inspired by a chapter from Chozick's memoir.
The series follows four fictional female journalists as they cover a host of flawed presidential candidates while “finding friendship, love, and a scandal that could take down not just the presidency but our entire democracy along the way."
Variety report that the series will not focus on Hillary Clinton or the 2016 U.S. presidential election.
Greg Berlanti and Sarah Schechter will executive produce under Berlanti Productions, while Plec will executive producer under her My So-Called Company banner.
Plec is best known for creating and serving the executive producer on the CW's The Vampire Diaries.
Since then, she has created and been shworunner on The Originals and created and serves as executive producer on Legacies.
She also serves as an executive producer on Roswell, New Mexico.
Earlier this year, Plec, and Legacies executive producer Brett Matthews spoke about the "inevitable" return of Malachi 'Kai' Parker to Mystic Falls.
In case you need a refresher, Kai (played by Chris Wood) was the major villain in The Vampire Diaries' sixth season.
He was the one who was stuck in the 1994 prison world with Bonnie and Damon, and who - much, much later - was behind linking Elena and Bonnie's lives.
“We’re coming for you, Chris Wood. Get ready,” Plec teased to AfterBuzz TV , while discussing the upcoming second season fo the show.
