Some of you TVD fans may already be heading back to school or getting ready for college, and you won’t be alone! Hollywood Crush has an interview with Julie Plec with some hints about the upcoming fifth season of The Vampire Diaries. Julie talks about Elena and Caroline’s new dorm room, a little about Whitmore College itself, and what frame of mind the girls are in as the season opens.
“They’re really committed to enjoying life and enjoying college and being college freshmen,” Julie said. It’s a good plan—too bad it’s not going to work. “Of course things will go instantly, terribly wrong, because that’s what always happens, but they remain committed to trying to have a true college experience and it bonds them in a really good way.”
There are also a few hints about Caroline and Elena’s love lives and a new face to watch for!
The clock is ticking down towards the season premiere of The Originals. To help tide you over, The CW has a new interview with Leah Pipes, who plays bartender Cami.
