Some of these images seem inspired by The Great Gatsby, while others show the actors artfully posing in a corner, framed by the shadow of a tree.
We’ve got Nina Dobrev, Paul Wesley, Ian Somerhalder, Candice Accola, Zach Roerig, Kat Graham, Steven R. McQueen and Michael Trevino, along with the Originals trio Claire Holt, Joseph Morgan and Daniel Gillies. And there’s also guest star Torrey DeVitto, who played Dr. Meredith Fell in The Vampire Diaries season 4.
The season 4 DVD and Blu-ray box sets will be released September 3, 2013.
The Vampire Diaries season 5 premieres exactly one month later, on October 3.
The first episode will jump ahead to the fall, to see Elena and Caroline start college. They’ll still be dealing with the death of Bonnie and the return of Jeremy, while Silas is still impersonating Stefan (who’s trapped at the bottom of the lake).
The Vampire Diaries season 5, episode 1 “I Know What You Did Last Summer” airs Thursday, October 3, at 8/7c on The CW. The premiere is directly followed by the series premiere of The Originals spinoff series.
