Seems like Elena (Nina Dobrev) isn’t too happy about being turned into a vampire and the beginning of the season focuses on how everyone is going to deal with that! Get ready for some brotherly tension – Stefan (Paul Wesley) doesn’t want Elena to have to be a vamp, but Damon (Ian Somerhalder) sees no other way out.  Also in the vid, we’ve got new characters, cop drama, Bonnie (Kat Graham) using her witchy powers to save the day, and a steamy scenes with Caroline and Tyler?! Yes, please!

Speaking of steamy, Nina also dished to Seventeen magazine about her boyfriend (and costar) Ian Somerhalder, saying she never wanted to date someone she worked with & tried to fight her feelings, but she couldn’t help it.  Aww, so cute!

The new season premieres on October 11th! Are you ready?
