Tonight marks the return of the CW Network’s smash vampire hit The Vampire Dairies. The romantic (and sometimes cheesy) series is from Kevin Williamson, who wrote the first two Scream films and created Dawson’s Creek along a long list of other films and television shows. The series stars Ian Somerhalder (Lost, Young Americans) and Paul Wesley (Everwood, Guiding Light) as two vampire brothers with a long history that are fighting over the affections of Nina Dobrev’s good-hearted (and human) Elena. You might remember Nina from Degrassi: The Next Generation.
This season of The Vampire Diaries promises a lot more action, romance, drama, and blood (not nearly as much sex or blood than True Blood, but what can you do). (possible spoilers) Continuing from the end of last season, we have been introduced to Katherine, the original woman who Somerhalder’s Damon and Wesley’s Stefan fought over. Unlike Elena, Katherine has a mean streak and is not someone you want to cross. Oh, and she is non too happy about the guy’s feelings for Elena. Just because they look alike, doesn’t mean that they are alike.
The new season premieres tonight on the CW at 8pm. It is followed by the premiere of the CW’s new action spy-drama Nikita, based (and semi continuing) off the movie and television series from the 90s.
What else is on today? I love how the end of the summer season now blends into the new fall season. They don’t give us any break.
