The time has finally come: it’s time for Season 5 of The Vampire Diaries! It’s been a long summer waiting for our favorite supernatural drama to make its epic return to the small screen, but beginning Thursday, October 3, the wait is officially over.
Join us as we send off Elena Gilbert (Nina Dobrev) and Caroline Forbes (Candice Accola) off to Whitmore College, see Mystic Falls deal with Stefan Salvatore’s disappearance and Silas’s (both played by Paul Wesley) rise to power. It sounds like Damon Salvatore (Ian Somerhalder) is going to have his hands full this season, with his brother drama and epic romance with Elena.
The Vampire Diaries airs on Thursdays at 8 p.m. ET on The CW. Check back every week to see if you can expect a new episode or if you’re in for a re-run. Hit the comments and let us know what you think of this season!

Now that we’ve gotten the premiere under our belts, we’re ready to deal with the ramifications of the two deaths from the Season 5 opener. With Megan and Bonnie’s dad dead, Elena and Caroline are going to go sniffing for answers around Whitmore College and meet up with the mysterious Dr. Wes Maxfield, a studly microbiology professor with tons of secrets. We’re also wondering when we’ll find out the connection between Megan and Nina’s dad?
Back in Mystic Falls Silas has turned the whole town into a collection of slaves who are looking for one person: Katherine. With Silas still causing problems for the gang, we’re expecting Damon and crew to get into some dangerous situations. And with Damon fully aware that Silas is running about and his brother Stefan is suffering, it’s only a matter of time before Elena starts to realize that something is up. Also, we really hope Tyler calls to apologize to Caroline. He’s got some explaining to do!

Woohoo, we can officially say that yes, The Vampire Diaries is new tonight. Season 5 begins tonight with the premiere, titled “I Know What You Did Last Summer.” In tonight’s episode, we will find out what our favorite Mystic Falls residents have been up to all summer — and we’ll be honest: for some it has been a very hot summer. Get ready to see a threesome with Matt Donovan (Zach Roerig), Rebekah Mikaelson (Claire Holt), and mysterious newcomer Nadia (Olga Fonda), as well as some steamy Delena kisses.
After a very eventful Season 4, don’t expect things to slow down at all. Things are going to be getting crazy at Whitmore College for Elena and Caroline while Ian, Katherine, and Jeremy Gilbert (Steven R. McQueen) deal with things back in Mystic Falls. This premiere is going to be absolutely insane!
