I have to admit I’ve been missing one of TV’s naughtiest bad boys, Damon Salvatore of “The Vampire Diaries”, during the show’s summer hiatus. Leave it to The CW to fill that void with a new promo featuring Ian Somerhalder as the roguish vamp in question.
Returning for its second season, “The Vampire Diaries” is the story of two vampire brothers obsessed with the same beautiful girl and battling to control the fate of an entire town. During season one Stefan and Damon Salvatore returned to their hometown of Mystic Falls, Virginia, for very different reasons – Stefan was determined to get to know Elena Gilbert, who bears a striking resemblance to Katherine Pierce, the beautiful but ruthless vampire the brothers knew and loved in 1864, while Damon was intent on releasing Katherine from the tomb where he believed she was trapped by a witch’s spell all those years ago. At the end of season one Elena’s uncle set a plan in motion that brought the Founder’s Day celebration to an end amid chaos, destruction, and death and saw the return of the vengeful Katherine Pierce.
Next season the appearance of the villainous Katherine in Mystic Falls throws a wrench into the love triangle among Stefan, Damon, and Elena; and the other residents of Mystic Falls must choose sides as they fall victim to a new breed of danger. New and unexpected friendships will be forged, allies will become enemies, and hearts will be broken. Stefan and Damon will be forced to face a villain more evil and diabolical than they ever believed possible. And they’ll take their shirts off. Frequently.
The series stars Nina Dobrev as Elena Gilbert, Paul Wesley as Stefan Salvatore, Ian Somerhalder as Damon Salvatore, Steven R. McQueen as Jeremy Gilbert, Sara Canning as Jenna Sommers, Katerina Graham as Bonnie Bennett, Candice Accola as Caroline Forbes, Zach Roerig as Matt Donovan, Michael Trevino as Tyler Lockwood, and Matt Davis as Alaric Saltzman. Based on the series of books by L. J. Smith, “The Vampire Diaries” is from Bonanza Productions Inc., Outerbanks Entertainment, and Alloy Entertainment in association with Warner Bros. Television and CBS Television Studios with executive producers Kevin Williamson, Julie Plec, Leslie Morgenstein, and Bob Levy.
