'Vampire Diaries' EXCLUSIVE: Watch The Season One DVD Trailer Now!

It's been nearly a year (can you imagine?!) since "Vampire Diaries" first premiered on the CW and pretty much changed our lives forever.

OK, so maybe we're being a little dramatic (or not), but "VD" definitely made it onto our list of TV-obsessions quickly. Every week, the show sucked us in (no pun intended), and every morning-after we'd spend hours talking about the twists (because every episode had one!) with fellow "VD" fans. So, of course, when we got our hands on this exclusive season one DVD trailer (the DVD and Blu-ray are out on August 31!), we were all kinds of ecstatic.

So 40-seconds can't really do an entire season of twists and turns justice, but this trailer reminds us why we fell in love with the show in the first place. From flirty glances between Stefan (Paul Wesley) and Elena (Nina Dobrev) to the dark arrival of Damon (Ian Somerhalder), the DVD teaser is a perfect reminder of how this show started off as a simple boy-girl love story (so he was a vampire, no big deal!), and morphed into something so much more twisted, complex and layered. In fact, the final scene in the clip sums it up best.

"I have a feeling this is just the beginning," Bonnie (Katerina Graham) says to Elena. We had no idea how right she would be.

For those who are ready to continue the story, season two starts in T-39 days. In the meantime: press play above to re-live the trailer for season 1 DVD and check out what features you can find on the discs below:
