Brace yourselves, everybody! TV Guide has revealed a brand new cold open for The Vampire Diaries Season 4, one that makes a big change from the style we’ve seen in previous seasons, it takes us back to the earliest days of the show.
In our exclusive video below, Elena (Nina Dobrev), Damon (Ian Somerhalder), Stefan (Paul Wesley), Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen), Caroline (Candice Accola), Klaus (Joseph Morgan) and Bonnie (Kat Graham) all lend their voices to the narration that will kick off the upcoming fourth season. A variation of this will be used in each episode to catch viewers up on major plot points that have happened thus far.
The CW continues its video interview series with Steven R. McQueen. Enjoy!

Hollywood Life caught up with Steven R. McQueen on the green carpet recently and asked him what he thinks might be coming up for Jeremy in season 4. Will Jeremy and Bonnie rekindle their romance? Will we see more scenes between Jeremy and Matt? Steven also gives some insight into how Jeremy may be reacting to his family situation as it was left in the finale. Spoilers for The Departed (EP322).
Zap2it spoke with Ian Somerhalder at the same event, to ask about his reaction to events in the finale (spoilers!). While he does do a little teasing, the actor is looking toward the bright side for next season.
“Here’s the good thing: he’s not pining for her, he’s not pining for Katherine, so maybe we’ll get some of that Season 1 Damon back,” he says.
Ian also talks about some of his off-screen work and projects he has going on right now, READ MORE AND WATCH THE VIDEO AT ZAP2IT.

UPDATE: The VRO has just announced that TVD Executive Producer Julie Plec will be a guest on Friday, May 11th.
Steven R. McQueen is dropping hints and teases all over this interview with Young Hollywood, so watch out for spoilers! He answers questions about what he’d like for Jeremy in season 4, his thoughts on a Bonnie and Jeremy reunion and what scares him in real life. Adorably, Steven also proves that he doesn’t share his character’s habit of misplacing dogs, buddy Max is right there sharing the interview couch. Awwww.
Joseph Morgan dropped by TV Guide to give Robyn Ross a Vampire Diaries Bite. Only with no actual biting. He does, however, chat about the future for Klaus and Caroline, what he thinks Stefan and Damon will do in regards to the pesky bloodlines thing, and the possibility of Klaus making it to season 4 given how many people want him dead.
There was a lot of press line action at the recent Paley event in Los Angeles, including this interview with Steven R. McQueen, courtesy of DanielleTBD. Steven was cagey on the subject of whether or not Jeremy will be getting darker as the season draws to a close, saying instead that we’ll be seeing a stronger version of the youngest surviving Gilbert.
It’s the question on every Jeremy fan’s mind: Will Elena’s little brother return to Mystic Falls? And will he return for a potential season four? Well, you’re in luck: Steven R. McQueen spilled all to Zap2it at a recent event. We’ll let you click through to see some of those answers, in case you don’t want to know yet, but here’s what we can expect when Jeremy returns later this season:
“There were a lot of things that happened right before I left,” he says. “When I get back, there’s kind of the bigger picture things that are going on, and then there’s all this stuff on the side. You’re just going to have to watch and see whether he has time to fully deal with it or not.”
The Hollywood Reporter has some new (spoilers!) images from the April 19th episode, Heart Of Darkness (EP319). Ian Somerhalder, Nina Dobrev, Nathaniel Buzolic and the much-missed Steven R. McQueen all appear in these stills, and things don’t look especially friendly.
First off, BEWARE OF SPOILERS IN BOTH ARTICLES.
Still with us? Good! If you’re little confused about where we left off a few weeks ago, don’t worry, Entertainment Weekly is ready to catch you up -and vault you forward- before tonight’s episode. They’ve got some great insights from Julie Plec about what’s ahead as we return to Mystic Falls. From the sound of things, life is about to get pretty interesting for one Mr. Alaric Saltzman.
…”But it’s going to be fun to see Alaric, after all this time [RIP, Jenna], notice a beautiful woman in his vicinity and have a response to her. He’s become more and more of a guardian figure to Elena and Jeremy, and so, of course, Elena is gonna be rootin’ for him to have someone.”
TV Line is also looking ahead, and they also went to Julie for some answers. She’s got some things to say about Elena and Damon, a possible romance for Klaus, and Tyler’s new sire issues. She’s also got some dish about the coffins that’s sure to get fans’ attention.
“At least one of those daggered Originals is coming out of those coffins,” teases Plec. “That will happen sooner than later.
Which Original is getting unboxed? We have no idea and Julie won’t say, looks like we’ll all just have to watch and see. Good thing it’s Thursday, just a few more hours to wait!
