Rejoice! The Vampire Diaries' All-New Season 4 Promo Has Arrived! (VIDEO)

Those of you who follow The Vampire Diaries on Facebook received a delicious treat this morning: The first promo for Season 4! (There's also a YouTube version, here.)

Car crashes! Shouting! Dark magic! Shirtlessness! Caroline! I won't distract you further, WATCH IT RIGHT NOW:

So good, right? Like, SO good. Welcome back, TVD.

P.S. if the trailer isn't enough (and of course it's not enough), here's a video I made in which Ian Somerhalder talks in a very "animated" fashion about Season 4.


The Vampire Diaries returns Thursday, October 11 at 9pm on The CW.

I'm going to start losing faith in the writers if Elena becomes a human.I need Elena to become a vampire in the hopes that it'll make her a bit more bearable and possibly more awesome.

Really excited for this season but they need to have less focus on love triangles and more focus on each main character - especially Bonnie. Looks like they finally have a promising storyline for her judging from the promo.

Speaking of Katherine, where is she? Is she for sure dead?
Reply

I really hope that they bring her back. She's the second most awesomest vampire on the show (Caroline's first).

No, she's just off chilling somewhere far, far away from Klaus. With him 'gone' she might return since, you know, the guy who's been trying to kill her for like 500 years is finally 'dead' so she can settle down and plant roots or whatever. Or she might be out of the loop and is happy chilling on a beach somewhere for the time being.

Since having her return is always an option (cos Nina Dobrev is always around) I guess they just bring her in when there's a plot line for her.

That scene with Caroline and the car crashing was AWESOOOME. Elena still looks hot. Hoping for the best.

Dark magic... like we didn't see that one coming. One can only hope it either transforms Bonnie to awesome or kills her off

God, I've missed your recaps, Price. Didn't realize till I saw this article. October is so far away ;_;

Damnit my money is on the status quo being reestablished after about one episode. I hate when shows do this. If you make big promises in the finale then you should reinvent your entire show based on that ending. Don't just make up that all of a sudden witches can save make vampires turn back into humans. Apparently Bonnie didn't care enough about Caroline to make her transformation stop. She is perfectly willing to sacrifice herself for Elena. When are the Characters of TVD going to learn Caroline > Elena?

i think that she'll actually do it, as much as i hate it i believe elena will go back to being human, since they all know we're dying to see it happen they HAVE to crush our dreams. i will not relax until i see her complete her transformation.

I'm sure Elena will become a vampire I've seen a promo for the series which shows her drinking blood from I think Rebecca's hand! http://www.filenuke.com/z465mqtfhqls its on there :)

I think Elena will stay human and eventually DAMON will become human too... or Elena becomes a vampire and Damon becomes human... or Damon has to choose between being human and being with Elena... or... ok maybe I don't know what's going to happen......

Besides. Bonnie will no doubt fail in her attempt. It's more about leading her deeper into dark magic. Elena will become a vampire. That's the point of the season.

Dude, bonnie didn't know how to cross over and bring someone back from the dead. Otherwise she would've done it for Caroline had Caroline Not already been a vampire when they encountered each other. In this case it's long time later, bonnie is more knowledgeable in the arts and believes she can do something. It also helps that elena isn't fully a vampire just yet and is only in transition.

It's the curse of season 4. Some shows seem to fail around in or around season 4. It happened to Heroes, House, Chuck and the list goes on. I have high expectations and hopes for TVD though. My guess is it's gonna be a fantastic season!

So when you become a vampire, all compulsions wears off, which means Elena will remember that she actually met Damon before she met Stefan, and considering she told Damon things might have worked out differently if she'd met him first she better pick him!!

Um, if anything seeing Damon in that suit up top should affect her decision. Girl, what are you thinking?
Reply

sooooo true
Reply

I don't see how Elena seeing Damon that night has any affect on her decision just because she said the words "If I had met you first." It honestly doesn't change anything.
Reply

Becoming a vampire changes everything. She'll more than likely be drawn to Damon in her development.

It changes who has "dibs", duh?

Bro code all over again. Haven't we had this conversation before, safibwana?

I believe the word invalid sums Elena up.
Flag
Perhaps, but applying any sort of reason to the little airhead makes no sense, so the entire discussion is just silly. She is a flighty, awful little nonsensical creature, incapable of knowing what she wants.

So the trailer looks like law enforcement might actually be taking some action in Mystic Falls? Shocker. Stile's dad for sheriff!

Lol, it'd be awesome if they had a Teen Wolf/The Vampire Diaries crossover but I doubt that that would work.

Teen Wolf OWNS this show!

OK why don't they make all the charecters vampires and get it over with i don't agree witht the previous comments i dont want Elena to become a vampire that leaves who ? Jeremy and Matt come on the show is about a human falling for two vampires and we have Kathrien do we really need another vampire but according to the comment below she does become a vampire and that really sucks!!!

You do know that she eventually becomes a vampire in the books too?
Reply

But then she turns back into a human again in the recent books. Hope that the show doesn't go along with most of the books.

If they stop the transformation, I'm going to be PISSED.
Reply

I doubt they will. All the interviews I've read for the season make it sound like she's staying a vampire.
Reply

I hope this doesn't turn into one of those shes a vampire for all of five minutes then somehow she is some how miraculously saved and remains a human..... She needs to remain a vampire. The hole doppelganger plot line is worn out it would be nice to see an Alana that isn't such a cry baby and doesn't need helped or saved every five minutes.

For some reason this promo didn't excite me that much...
Reply

Might be the fact that you know she becomes a vampire in the end.
Reply

So I'm not the only one! I personally think it's the music though. It's not dramatic enough, maybe?
Reply
Flag
Yay, Bonnie is doing magic and loses conciousness?! Wow, this must be exciting... -.-

Maybe she's going to die so Elena can live xD that was a trade I would be willing to make :P



This car scene reminded me of Inception, anyone? Everyone xD



Can't wait for season 4 although I have to say this promo is not really exciting... But I'm sure it will be :) It has to...

Elena as a vamp is definitely going to change the game a bit.. and I think for the better. There are so many avenues they can take now, and better yet...so many opportunities for hardcore bed breaking wall busting vampire sex!

Hoping this season turns out to be better than Season 3 was. Last season was just "eeeh" and felt like after the course of 22 episodes, everything that was supposed to happen never happened. And by that I mean, Klaus didn't die which is disappointing. With Elena turning, Klaus serves little to no purpose. And please, don't have him pining for Caroline. He's a villain who's loved for over 1000 years! Where's the Klaus who was scary, considered love to be a weakness, and was always one step ahead of the game?



I really am excited for this season though (PHOEBE TONKIN!) and I'm excited to see Elena finally grow some independence and some much needed character development when she turns. If she still ends up being helpless and defenseless, I will be soooo disappointed.



The only thing is, this promo didn't get me excited. I think it's the song they chose though. It just doesn't really fit the promo video like it should have. It doesn't make anything feel big or dramatic. It's a nice song though! Just doesn't work for this promo.

*lived over 1000 and loved over 100 years (y)



jk...I for my part am happy that they didn't kill Klaus. He's one of my favourite characters and if Joseph Morgan won't be back soon...and I can't do anything about it :/ but it would definitely piss me of xD



Still I'm looking forward to how Trevino will be going to portray Klaus

I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say "like a douche". This may be colored by the fact I've never seen him play anything other than douche Tyler and he'll be playing Klaus pretending to be douche Tyler in any case.
