Activate the Mystic Falls phone tree, guys! This rumor has been floating around for a while, but it has now been confirmed by a reliable source: Vulture reports that The Vampire Diaries Season 4 will debut on Netflix streaming this Thursday, October 3. (Yep, TVD Season 5 and The Originals premiere day.)
So if you’ve been holding off on purchasing the DVD/Blu Ray (Netflix doesn’t have the snazzy special features, though!), tell your family, tell your friends, and let the viewing parties begin.
The NewNowNext Awards are tonight, and there’s a live red carpet show! Vampire-Diaries.Net is up for the Superfan Site Award, and we’re thrilled to be included in this exciting event.
The actual awards show won’t air until Monday, but they’re being filmed tonight and Kat Graham will be there, and the red carpet show will be streaming live tonight, with cool interactive features.

The 2012 NewNowNext Awards, hosted by Kelly Osbourne, premiere Monday, April 9 at 10/9c only on Logo but we’ll be streaming the red carpet live TONIGHT!
The show starts at 8:30pm EST tonight, watch it live at NewNowNext.com, and be sure to tune in for the awards show itself on Monday, April 9 at 10/9c!
We heard you! Starting with #TVD and #TSC Thursday, streamed eps will be available just 8 hours after air!
They also included a link to an article on Variety, detailing the thought process behind their decision to swing towards next-day streaming.
The shift is aimed at curbing illegal streams and downloads that siphon viewers of heavily pirated series including “The Vampire Diaries” and “Gossip Girl” away from both TV and CWTV.com.
The eight-hour window will bring CWTV.com in line with the window already in place for Apple’s iTunes and Hulu Plus, the latter thanks to one of several deals CW parent companies Warner Bros. and CBS Corp. made last year to put the network’s programming on digital outlets, infusing enough new revenue to stabilize the money-losing netlet.
