Here Are Some 'Vampire Diaries' Cast Pics To Make You Bloody Excited For Season 7

Just a little something for you to sink your teeth into!

One itsy bitsy little month is all that stands between us and brand new episodes of "The Vampire Diaries," guys. And even if you're still reeling over the loss of Nina Dobrev from the Season 7 "TVD" squad -- which, we totally get BTW -- we've gathered all the best behind-the-scenes goods that'll make you more than ready to return to full-time residence in the oh-so-cursed Mystic Falls.

Thanks to the social media-savvy cast, we've got gobs of great pics from production on the new season that'll get your heart pounding for what's to come from our favorite fang fam this fall.

First of all, Ian Somerhalder got behind the lens again this week.

You might recall he made his splashy directorial debut with the must-see episode “The Downward Spiral” near the end of Season 6. And according to his caption for this pic, this was happening "right now" as of this weekend.

Also, Stefan and Damon have always cleaned up nice -- and clearly, nothing's changed on that front.

This season there’ll be no shortage of schmexy Salvatore Bros. So, at least there’s that.

And even if they are a century old by now, they’re still totally tech.

Meanwhile, Lily looks so pretttty.

According to her caption, she and Damon are all snazzed up (and “ready to party”) for the new season’s sixth episode, where there’ll also be a swanky chandelier and lots of floating lights. So, you know, something’s going to go terribly wrong.

Whatcha got cookin’, Mama S?

Somehow we don't think it's a vegetarian dish that's brought her boys to the table here.

As expected, Matt is totes a hot cop.


Also, the new guy has quite an appetite.

We’re going to be seeing a lot of the woods this season.

(Real AND fake.)

And might as well prepare yourself now for lots of the usual blood splatter scenes because “The Vampire Diaries.”

"The Vampire Diaries" returns to The CW for its newest season on Thursday, Oct. 8th at 8/7c.
