And here it is, the final (or is it…?) TVD Season 5 promo poster via the official Vampire Diaries Facebook page: Damon Salvatore.
ET Online has a rather candid interview with Ian Somerhalder about what viewers can expect heading into the Vampire Diaries’ fifth season. He touches on how this season compares to those before, Damon’s famous tendencies towards self-sabotage, Elena versus Katherine, and what he wants viewers to experience:
ETonline: Looking at this season, what are you excited for the fans to experience?
Somerhalder: The return of that feeling we all loved about season one. The feeling that initially sucked them in and allowed these stories to resonate. The scripts are coming in huge, the actors are pushing each other to make sure the scenes are the best they can be without compromising and it’s darker; and our show is supposed to be dark and we’re really taking it there this year.
Speaking of Katherine, the official TVD Facebook has just released her TVD Season 5 poster:
You know it’s premiere week when we can’t keep up with all the interviews and promo, but here are a few fun Vampire Diaries tidbits for you. First up, the official TVD Facebook has posted the TVD Season 5 Elena Gilbert promo poster. (Pretty gorgeous, right?)
Next, E!Online celebrates “TVD goes to college” with a look back at other shows that made the transition from high school to the hallowed halls of higher education.
And Entertainment Weekly has a fun mini-supercut of Damon’s best insults from the early seasons of The Vampire Diaries. (Have a favorite Damon insult of your own?)
Oh, doppelgangers. Cheeky, CW, very cheeky. Well played. Following the Stefan poster they released earlier today, we now have a Silas poster courtesy of the official TVD Facebook. (Also, we’re excited because that means an Elena and Katherine poster, right?!)
People’s Choice has an exclusive behind the scenes photo from The Originals, featuring Joseph Morgan (Klaus) and Leah Pipes (Cami), and is also teasing what viewers can expect from the show’s premiere episode, Always and Forever, airing this Thursday, October 3 at 9/8c.
(Note: It is an entirely new episode that overlaps with the backdoor pilot that aired in April.)
Fans have been clamoring for more Elijah since his sporadic appearances on The Vampire Diaries. Now, it looks like they may finally be getting their wish. Though Elijah popped up in the backdoor pilot for The Originals, he has a much bigger role in the revised cut.
Thursday creeps ever closer and the CW has released two more TVD Season 5 promo posters via the official Vampire Diaries Facebook: Bonnie Bennett and Stefan Salvatore.
