THE VAMPIRE DIARIES on The CW Pictures & Videos

The Vampire Diaries Cast

Take a look at some pictures and video from THE VAMPIRE DIARIES from The CW.

After The CW’s 2009-2010 primetime schedule announcement this morning, it’s time to take a closer look at all the new shows that will soon grace our screens.

I have been reading the books that The Vampire Diaries is based on, and I kind of like them. However I already noticed a few things that have been changed for the show. Either I’m not only excited to watch the show because it’s about vampires, but also because Paul Wesley and Ian Somerhalder star in it, and that’s good enough for me. Plus I gotta say the three preview clips actually look pretty good.

The Vampire Diaries Synopsis: Four months after the tragic car accident that killed their parents, 17-year-old Elena Gilbert (Nina Dobrev, “DeGrassi: The Next Generation”) and her 15-year-old brother, Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen, “Everwood”) are still trying to cope with their grief and move on with their lives. Elena has always been the star student; beautiful, popular and involved with school and friends, but now she finds herself struggling to hide her sadness from the world. As the school year begins, Elena and her friends are fascinated by a handsome and mysterious new student, Stefan Salvatore (Paul Wesley, “Army Wives”). Stefan and Elena are immediately drawn to one another, and Elena has no way of knowing that Stefan is a centuries-old vampire, struggling to live peacefully among humans, while his brother Damon (Ian Somerhalder, “Lost”) is the embodiment of vampire violence and brutality. Now these two vampire brothers ─ one good, one evil ─ are at war for Elena’s soul and for the souls of her friends, family and all the residents of the small town of Mystic Falls, Virginia. Based on the series of books by L. J. Smith, THE VAMPIRE DIARIES is from Alloy Entertainment and Bonanza Productions Inc in association with Warner Bros. Television and CBS Television Studios with executive producers Kevin Williamson (“Dawson’s Creek,” “I Know What You Did Last Summer”), Julie Plec (“Kyle XY,” “Wasteland”), Leslie Morgenstein (“Gossip Girl,” “Privileged”) and Bob Levy (“Gossip Girl,” “Privileged”). Marcos Siega (“Dexter”) directed the pilot.

So let’s take our first look at The Vampire Diaries with a video and some pictures below.
