Tonight, the “older” vampires return in a new show while our beloved “newer” vampires return in the old show!
The fifth season of The Vampire Diaries starts tonight and a long list of questions remain to be answered. These of course include the fate of Katherine, trapped in this world as a human; Stefan, trapped underwater in a metal safe; Bonnie, trapped in the underworld as a ghost and our resident vampires, hybrids and humans, trapped in Mystic Falls as bait! Not to mention the newcomers … do we have running bets on how long they will last? Well, we can keep guessing the fate of the new comers and how long Silas will go undetected with Stefan’s face, but we are surely HUNGRY for everything on The Vampire Diaries as they prepare for college and a new life sans any threat from the originals, but with new threats from everywhere else!
Check out this gallery of arty promotional photos for this season, released exclusively on the show’s Facebook page.
Here are some more cast shots for season 5.

WTF is happening! Is that Silas flirting with Elena … no, it can’t be, that must be Katherine getting scrubbed after her harrowing summer as a human, who it seems is flirting back with Silas, perhaps thinking him to be Stefan!? And did Damon find out that Stefan is Silas’ doppleganger … Damon, you will have to learn how to spell that word! WE.CANNOT.WAIT!!!
Noticeably missing from the Season 5 roster are previous regulars Joseph Morgan, Claire Holt and Daniel Gillies who along with The Vampire Diaries recurring alum Phoebe Tonkin join Charles Michael Davis, Daniella Pineda, Danielle Campbell and Leah Pipes in the new spin-off The Originals, premiering right after The Vampire Diaries! Check out the cast below, in their New Orleans setting!
We watched the backdoor pilot to the show back in season 4 of The Vampire Diaries, where we learned that Klaus’ protege Marcel now runs New Orleans and has a tight reign over the witches of the town. Further, we also found out that Hayley was expecting a child after a bedtime tryst with Klaus and the prospect of being a part of a family was enough to convince Elijah to abandon Katherine and run over to New Orleans, with Rebekah in tow after some convincing. The episode (and the show), while based around the premise of a pregnancy, still looked darker, and felt more gothic and grown up and it is certainly recommended that you tune in, because come on, can you really resist Klaus and Elijah? Watch an extended preview and a recap of the backdoor pilot, below!
Each year, the CW releases some fantastic arty promotional photos, and this year is no different. You’ve seen the awesome promo photos for The Vampire Diaries above, now check out the promo photos for The Originals below, released on the show’s Facebook page!
