With the premiere date for Season 2 steadily approaching, the CW has begun to roll out the promos and contests for The Vampire Diaries, which returns to Thursday nights (FINALLY!) beginning September 9.
I recently saw the promo spot for Season 2, and let me tell you: the writers ain’t playin’ this season!!! Katherine has come back in full force, and it seems that although Damon is still obsessed with her, she only wants one thing: Stefan. And it looks like she’ll do anything to have her way, and have some fun while she’s getting it.
Also of note: The Vampire Diaries Fansite is having a Twitter contest to win a prize pack, which will include the Season 1 DVD (to be released on August 31), Blu-ray t-shirt, hat and bookmark – courtesy of Warner Bros. Details for the contest can be found at this link.
Need a recap of what happened in Season 1, or need a reason to tune in (for those five of you who aren’t watching the show yet, tsk! tsk!)? Here’s a look at Season 1 in Mystic Falls.
The Vampire Diaries premiered on the CW network in the fall of 2009, based on the series of books by author L.J. Smith. It tells the tale of Elena, a typical teenager who is the object of affection for a set of feuding brothers, who both happen to be vampires. Stefan and Damon Salvatore have a complicated history and their habit of falling for the same women has major consequences Elena and the town of Mystic Falls. The talented cast is lead by Nina Dobrev (Degrassi, The Next Generation), Paul Wesley (American Dreams, Everwood), and Ian Somerhalder (LOST) and can be seen on the CW Network Thursday nights at 8pm beginning September 9.
For those of you who would like to get up close and personal with members of the cast, Paul Wesley (Stefan) and Robert Wade Pralgo (Mayor Richard Lockwood) will be appearing at Dragon*Con in Atlanta next weekend, September 3-6. As of this post, they are scheduled for the following appearances (schedules are tentative and can be changed at any time):
