‘Vampire Diaries’ Season 5 Premiere Photos: School’s In Session

Welcome to Whitmore College!

The CW has released a slew of new images from the season-five premiere of “The Vampire Diaries”—appropriately titled “I Know What You Did Last Summer” (shout-out to Kevin Williamson!)—capturing Elena and Caroline’s first days as college co-eds.

“They’re really committed to enjoying life and enjoying college and being college freshmen. It’s a good plan—too bad it’s not going to work,” executive producer Julie Plec told Hollywood Crush regarding the girls’ matriculation. “Of course things will go instantly, terribly wrong, because that’s what always happens, but they remain committed to trying to have a true college experience and it bonds them in a really good way.”

And it looks like Elena and Caroline waste no time immersing themselves in campus life—is that a Greek party we see them trying to gain entry to?

Of course, the duo aren’t the only ones adjusting to ch-ch-changes. Jeremy’s back from the dead, for one. And Bonnie, well, she’s back from the…living?

“I ended the last season dead, so it’s kind of up to them where it’s going to go. I don’t really know.,” Kat Graham said earlier this summer.

We’ll have to tune in to the season five premiere of “The Vampire Diaries” on October 3 to find out!
