Fall TV Preview

Vampire Diaries Hot Shots: Damon/Elena Party; Stefan/Klaus Terrorize; Tyler/Caroline Look Cute!

It’s Elena’s party and she’ll schmooze with Damon (and Alaric) if she wants to!

Season 3 of The Vampire Diaries is right around the corner, and The CW is giving fans a taste of what to expect with not one, not two, but nine new photos from the much-anticipated premiere (airing Thursday, Sept. 15 at 8/7c). So, what’s the Mystic Falls gang up to come summer’s end?

Elena is preparing to celebrate her 18th birthday — minus main squeeze Stefan, who is running around on a reign of terror with the big bad Klaus. But don’t worry, Damon is there to keep her company, as are Tyler and Caroline — though it looks like they’re keeping each other more company than anyone else.

Scope out the aforementioned Vampire Diaries Season 3 premiere pics below.
