TV Fanatic had an exclusive chat with Executive Producer Julie Plec about what's coming in the second half of season 2. "The Vampire Diaries" will delve into a darker place for the majority of our fabulous cast. Julie spoils about Werewolves, Manwitches, shirtless boys and much more.
Overall, what can we expect when the show returns?
We’re going to come to the end of what we’re calling our werewolf chapter, which will really take that story to a really dark place and really change a lot of characters lives, not necessarily in a good way.
We are going to dig deeper into the secrets of our new witches and what Bonnie's role is going to be in their story, and of course it's all about the fear of the impending Klaus, and who’s going to be fighting on who’s side, who’s bond is with who, who’s going to betray whom, and is this curse going to be lifted at the hands of a sacrifice that would kill Elena. We’re full steam ahead.
Is there a clause in Ian Somerhalder's contract about appearing shirtless a certain number of times per month?
(Laughs.) No. It’s funny, we had a little bit of a drought of our shirtless boys this season, because we only put them shirtless when it feels right for the story. But I looked at Kevin and I was like, “everybody’s had too many clothes on for the last 6 or 7 episodes. This is wrong. So we’ll be seeing more bare-chested boys as we go into the New Year. All totally organic to the story, as always, of course (laughs).
During Carina MacKenzie's extended visited to the set of "The Vampire Diaries" she spoke with the CW stars about their Holiday plans. While keeping warm inside their trailers, the cast also talked about New Year's Resolutions, or lack there-of ;).

When will we get more backstory on The Vampire Diaries? — Maxine
NATALIE: An upcoming flashback to 1864 will give Elena a new perspective on her sibling suitors. Before then, though, expect a visit or two from the Grim Reaper. "A lot of people are dying," Katerina Graham tells us. "Not, like, too many, where it's like, 'Why are all these people dying?' But a couple of important characters are going to go."

The talented Carina MacKenzie of Zap2it came to Zach Roerig's, a.k.a. Matt Donovan, defense in an adorable piece she posted yesterday. Zach talks about the past, present and future of his character on "The Vampire Diaries". Carina fervently waves her Team Matt flag high and makes a serious case for the under appreciated actor.
There's only so much a guy can take. "Everyone knows Matt's going to snap," Zach says. "If Matt was let in on the fact that there are vampires, and all the other craziness that's going on, that's a lot - to find out his sister was killed, and it was covered up by his friends. His original girlfriend that he loved was involved, his second girlfriend was involved and now she's messing with a werewolf - that's a lot to process."
It's all about potential. Just because Matt isn't secretly a mind-reading fairy doesn't mean that he doesn't have some incredible stories waiting to bite him in the neck. How quickly we forget, while we're raving about Caroline as a vampire or Tyler's transformation scene, that last season, she was just a vulnerable Type A and he was just a typical two-dimensional bully.
If there's anything we've learned from the secondary characters currently embroiled in suspenseful, unpredictable character arcs, it's that the powers that be behind "The Vampire Diaries" never let a character go to waste. Matt's time will come. Patience, grasshoppers. Have a little faith.
Basically, if you think Matt Donovan is boring, you're not thinking enough.
Ian Somerhalder recently told Black Book Magazine about his favorite seductive play list. The "Vampire Diaries" star shares his top ten favs and a description of why he loves each one. Who's headed to iTunes right now?!?!
Special thanks to @Shirarose1 for the heads up :).
The Black Keys’ “Next Girl.” This track is about breaking up with a fucking bitch, and it’s something you always tell yourself: My next girl will be nothing like my ex-girl. But that never works, even if she’s the complete opposite of your ex-girlfriend. They’re all going to slay you the same way, because they can.
Deerhunter’s “Desire Lines.” Remember when Pearl Jam came out with Ten, which had that song “Black” on it? That was the song that guys played when we screwed girls in high school. “I know someday you’ll have a beautiful life, I know you’ll be a star/ In somebody else’s sky, but why, why, why.” Like that one, this is a jam you can listen to in the morning without slitting your wrists, but it definitely says some heavy shit.
Belle & Sebastian’s “I Want the World to Stop.” Remember Modern English’s “I Melt with You”? I used to listen to that one with my brother on the way to our preppy Catholic school. This song is kind of like that. It sounds happy, but then Stuart Murdoch starts singing about “winter disorder,” which sounds dismal. To escape that, there’s nothing better than warm sheets and a beautiful woman on your naked body.
Head over to Black Book Magazine for the complete list, plus Ian's thoughts about each track.
Thanks to the new CW TVD rep Judy Yam~@HeyJude012 I have a trio of hot boys to warm up even the coldest of days this holiday hiatus. The still is from an upcoming episode of "The Vampire Diaries" scheduled to air in 2011.
Kristin has served up some "Vampire Diaries" spoiler scoop for the rabid fans that are struggling to make it through the hiatus. News of Klaus and Bonnie/Jeremy kicker to come.
@Elliemacb (via Twitter): Any news on Vampire Diaries‘ Klaus? Have they cast him yet? Any other scoops on TVD?
No Klaus yet. I hear casting him is a tall task because the dude has to be intimidating enough to make even Damon “shake in his boots,” per Ian Somerhalder. “[Klaus] is the most powerful,” Ian tells me. “He’s the guy you don’t want to be in a room with. Ever…In order to kill these guys [the originals], there’s such a process.”
Indigo: I am really loving Bonnie and Jeremy on The Vampire Diaries. But do they stand a chance at real coupledom?
That is one question we will tackle tomorrow during a shopping trip with Bonnie herself, Katerina Graham. (A girl’s gotta get her scoop in while Xmas shopping, right? What’s that thing about the birds and the stone?) Any more questions you have for Katerina? Send ‘em to firstname.lastname@example.org or tweet me @KristinDSantos.

Back in the Fall of 2009 our favorite love triangle did a photo shoot with TV Guide Magazine. Nina Dobrev, Ian Somerhalder and Paul Wesley posed for a ridiculously hot photo session to promote the CW's new flagship show, "The Vampire Diaries". As with most photo shoots there are always a few that don't make the cut and thanks to Wetpaint I have the outtakes to share. Enjoy :)!

Michaela McManus~Jules spilled some spoilery tidbits to EW in an interview after wrapping for the holidays. McManus made her debut appearance on "The Vampire Diaries" in the Fall Finale, "By The Light Of The Moon". The beautiful actress dishes on her motives, Damon, Tyler and much more. McManus is scheduled to have a recurring role on the CW hit, so we can look forward to seeing her around Mystic Falls for a awhile.
So what did we learn? We’d do well to remember that exec producers Kevin Williamson and Julie Plec don’t write one-dimensional characters: “The fans don’t really know how to respond to Jules because as much as she is tough and a threat to Damon, she is also coming back to avenge her friend’s death, so you can’t really blame her for that,” McManus says. “She’s not outright crazy or mean. She’s just trying to protect herself and get back at Damon for what he’s done to Mason.” So does Jules want to make the ancient battle of the beasts her war, or is she just a provoked pacifist like Mason? “There’s this centuries-old feud between vampires and werewolves because they’re a threat to one another, and she definitely harbors a little bit of that,” she teases. “But the thing about Jules is, she has a sensitive side. She has to live with being a werewolf and every full moon transforming into this beast who wreaks havoc, but it’s not something she’s proud of or happy with. I don’t think she’s the kind of werewolf that just likes to go around tearing up people. She definitely has a hard time with it.”
From the promo for the Jan. 27 return, we know that Jules continues to face off with Damon (Ian Somerhalder), and McManus promises, even though Damon is feeling vulnerable with Rose, his “special friend,” going insane and presumably dying from Jules’ bite, he’s still the badass we’ve all come to love. “She’s after him, and he’s just as much after her. It’s really fun to see the two of them battle it out,” she says. “[Ian's] so great. In real life, he’s such a charmer and so funny. When you’re working with him, he’s just completely unafraid to take risks. He changes things up, he’s always in the moment. It’s just a good time whenever I have a scene with him.”

Candice Accola spoiled to Fancast about the January 27th episode of "the Vampire Diaries". "The Descent" will be the first new episode of the new year and Candice's character Caroline will be doing a lot of kissing. The ever blossoming actress has a couple of beaus to choose from now, so what will she do :).
Who is the right guy for Caroline: Matt or Tyler?
I don’t think there is a right or wrong guy. Caroline, her number one relationship is the one that she has with herself right now. She cares for both people, but for very different reasons. The writers have done such a great job because her relationship and friendship with Tyler is based on experience that Matt could never relate to. It creates a bond for them that there are no words to describe. Her relationship and friendship with Matt is based on her first love. That really takes a hold of your heart when you’re young. It’s like that old sweater that you always want to wear. But, at the same time, there’s things changing in her life that he won’t be able to relate to. She will never be able to be her full on, open self with him. Both of them were lacking what the other one has so there really is no right or wrong choice.
In the preview of the first post-hiatus episode, Caroline laments that everyone is kissing her. Can you give me some hints about what is happening?
The next episode is her figuring out what she wants. Now there’s options. She had to work her butt off to get Matt’s attention. For the first time she’s really occupied with what she wants in her own mind, where these guys are all coming to her. I think she’s a little overwhelmed. It was really funny to read the script. There’s a lot of kissing in this episode.
TV Guide has a nice interview with Ian Somerhalder and Julie Plec to share with the TVD Fandom. Ian and Julie shed some light on brotherly bonding and and all things Elena. Be sure to click here for the video.
"There is a bit of a bonding moment that's happening with those two," Somerhalder told TVGuide.com during our visit to the set. "One would think ... that Damon is flying high and really ecstatic about that. Maybe six months ago, yes, he would be over the moon, but I don't think so anymore."
Executive producer Julie Plec adds that the sometimes strained bond between Damon and Stefan is crucial to the show. "The power of the brotherhood between these two in times when they're living their lives the same, making the same heroic choices, or times when they're on opposite ends of the fight — that's the weight of the show," she says.
Zap2it has posted more of Carina's interviews with the cast of "The Vampire Diaries". They take us behind the scenes and dish about onset pranks, blood-loss and David Ander's return.
Paul Wesley, who was happy to do interviews despite having to come to work on crutches due to a badly sprained ankle, laughs, "It'll be interesting to see a Season 2 gag reel. On this set, we have fun, but we also take it really seriously, too. It's been so intense and we want to make it good so I can't think of any moments off the top of my head that are hilarious. We're always playing pranks on each other. That's incessant."
Sara Canning, whose character Jenna met the wrong end of a knife this season, dished on working with special effects blood. "When I shot my scene where Jenna stabs herself, we only did two takes, and the first one he rigged up the tube inside my dress so that the blood would start spurting out of my stomach, and it was like a lake of blood," she laughs. "There's a science to it. Someone was lying behind the counter using a hand pump to pump the blood."

Thanks to TV Guide I have a few spoilers to share for "The Vampire Diaries". It was spoiled earlier that David Anders will return to Mystic Falls to reprise his role as John Gilbert in episode 13, "Daddy Issues". Now it looks as if Isobel, Elena's Biological mother, might be returning as well, plus news on the Damon/Bonnie front.
Any chance Isobel (Mia Kirshner) will return on Vampire Diaries? — Heather
NATALIE: Yes! Elena's malevolent-hot birth mother will be back to share her wealth of vampire knowledge. Maybe. "Isobel has a lot of information and will continue to be useful for that information," executive producer Julie Plec tells us. "Where she is right now, what she's doing and whose side she's on — those questions start to get asked very soon." (She's also not the only birth parent returning to town.)
Will Damon and Bonnie grow closer?
Vampires and witches are notoriously enemies, but in Season 2, Bonnie (Katerina Graham) and Damon eventually teamed up to fight the bigger fight. The question is whether or not they will take it a step further and develop the close bond they do in the novels. Plec understands that theirs is a relationship important to book fans, but says, for now, they'll just remain frenemies. "The fun we have with them right now is [going] from two people who have absolutely no respect, admiration or love for each other, whatsoever, but because they share a common goal and share common loves, they come together and are willing to put their differences aside and work together."

I spoiled earlier about Ian Somerhalder's character Damon Salvatore filming a bath/shower scene for episode 13, "Daddy Issues". Now we have conformation, thanks to People from the star himself that he was not alone. I wonder if it was sweet Rose, or another Mystic Falls Beauty. What are your thoughts. Special thanks to Vampire Diaries Source for the heads up.
How did Ian Somerhalder spend his birthday?Photo Credit: CW
"I was naked with a beautiful girl all day," the star of The Vampire Diaries, who turned 32 on Dec. 8, tells PEOPLE. "I had a shower scene that led into another scene were I was kind of half-naked and wet."
The CW has released a short new promo entitled, "We Own The Night" for "The Vampire Diaries". There is also a new Australian promo that CQtv has released for 2011. Special thanks to Vampire Diaries Source for the heads up :).
Fanbolt has released some juicy teasers about their set visit to "The Vampire Diaries". At the grill Emma was able to chat with just about every cast member and managed to get some 2011 spoilers.
A lot of fans have been wondering, how much more is there that we don't know about the Mystic Falls mythology?
"There's always going to be extra skeletons buried. Literal and figurative in Mystic Falls. It's got a lot of history, and it's had a lot of blood shed." Julie explained, "One of the things that drew Kevin (Williamson) and I to this project was when we first read the books, in book 3 or 4, when all the civil war soldiers rose up from their graves and fought back against Klaus. He realized that Mystic Falls is special, because there has been so much loss of life and so much blood shed that it is almost a stop on the supernatural map."
Ian Somerhalder was the busiest actor on set that day. He was brought into chat between scenes. He was in for 3 minutes, out for 20, back for 3 minutes, and that's sadly all the time we got with him. Hoping for more next time around. But we did get to talk with him about a couple things. How does he want the Damon/Elena relationship to evolve?
"I just want him to make out with her eventually. I mean Stefan gets both of them. And I think it's just time to pay the fiddler. I have no idea how that's ever going to happen by the way." Ian replied, "I would just like to see him be in her good graces. For her to see that he's not such a dick. But the problem is, he is. So I don't really know where I want that to go. All I know is that I want him to protect her."

Elena has been a fiery force of nature these last few episodes and even though her screen time in "By The Light Of The Moon" was diminished, her 'Petrova Fire' was still burning brightly. I love that they have brought the selflessness of Elena from the books into the series. Even though her tired plan to trade herself and that damn moonstone for the protection of her loved ones is clearly a bad idea, Elena irrevocably believes it to be the only option. Well, that got her put on lock down at the Gilbert house, complete with chaperons. Who are, by the way, surprisingly repose with each other. After last week's sexual tension tease-fest you would think there would be at least a smidgen of awkwardness, but Bonnie, Jeremy and even Damon are acting more like Frat boys hazing a pledge.
Of course it was Damon's idea to transform Elena's house into a cozy prison. This was really genius, for two reasons: The invisible barrier not only keeps Elena inside, but no one can take Elena out either. On a side note; Has anyone clued Bonnie, Caroline and all the other sacrificial puzzle pieces in on the fact they're in danger of being used, blead and/or killed over a bar of soap in the name of Klaus' Master Plan?!?!
Damon is in full protective mode and I actually really like his restraint with Elena, especially given the situation. Instead of the usual outpouring of angsty, awesome chemistry that we often get with D/E(and love), Damon seems to have his eye focused to what's at hand. Personally, I like the slow burn of their constant intensity and inevitable coalesce. To me, that's what good storytelling is and Kevin and Julie have a penchant for it. Now, it's off to the Grill to investigate the new hottie in town and rekindle one of my favorite Bromances.
I never get tired of Dalaric, they really play off each other beautifully. Fake drunk Alaric is hilarious, because you can totally tell it's fake and Damon swooping in for the rescue looks completely contrived. The plan is to slip some Wolf's Bane into Lady Wolf's drink. First, I'd like to say that when I saw this scene I totally got the 'I'm going to roofee and date rape you in the alley' vibe :). However, our Bromantic duo assuredly underestimated Jules. Back at the Lockwood Mansion Jules got on the horn with someone who was presumably another Werewolf and reported her intel. So, like is there a whole pack of surfing werewolves back in Florida just waiting to migrate up to Mystic Falls and do some Vampire hunting? Jules has the upper hand here, clearly she knows her mythology and can smell Vampires and Wolf's Bane. Ballsy; "You fool, I've been at this a long time. Tonight is not the night to pick a fight with me, you've been marked." Maybe Jules is more adept at controlling her werewolf alter-ego.
I'm super glad Aunt Jenna and Alaric have been getting some sexy time, but bless her and her cluelessness. The Gilbert house is the easiest house to infiltrate in Mystic Falls, there's someone new and unwanted in there like every other episode. I know they can't tell Jenna about the new Hellmouth of the South, but someone could bring up the idea of ADT to her, and maybe shut the windows and lock the doors occasionally. Oh, and stop her from inviting every new person that arrives in Mystic Falls into the house!
Bonnie and Luka
I love the nickname of Manwitch that @cadlymack has given Joanes and Luka, so that's what I will be calling them from now on. I guess Bonnie is too smitten with baby manwitch to be suspicious by Daddy Manwitch's ginormous Grimoire collection. I don't know about you, but given everything that's goes supernaturally awry in Mystic Falls, that would send me a red flag. Anyway, Bonnie's heart is in the right place, but I can hardly believe she actually thought she'd be able to effectively de-spell the bar of soap, but Bonnie and baby manwitch give it a whirl despite my logic. As we have seen in the last two episodes, apparently channeling magic feels really awesome! Maybe that's why Bonnie shows a blind eye to the creepiness of Daddy Manwitch. I don't completely hate Luka, because he's very discontent with his role as minion to his father and Elijah. He delivers the bar of soap, unscathed, to Daddy Manwitch, but begrudgingly. Luka quite possibly could have some genuine feelings for Bonnie.
The highlight of "By The Light Of The Moon" was Tyler and Caroline. We all knew ahead of time that Tyler's struggle and transformation would be showcased in the Fall Finale and there was no disappointment to be had. My expectations were really all over the place with this aspect of the show, but I was really blown away by how TVD set themselves apart from other supernaturally based series'. The limited CGI allowed the audience to focus on the agony that this curse brings. The shadowing used was brilliant and made his bones breaking believable. I had to force myself not to look away at times. Tyler's convulsing and spasmic reactions embodied and authenticated what turning into a werewolf means in this lore. Michael Trevino owned the episode and his performance was heartbreakingly real and poignant. Even from the the first scene when Tyler was desperately trying to call Mason one last time, you could see the fear and anxiety with every expression and hear it in every word of dialogue Tyler spoke throughout the episode. Trevino's character has come a long way since season 1, Tyler has evolved into so much more than just a peripheral bully with a lot of rage.
Caroline's support through her natural enemies battle was beyond incredible. Candice Accola's character has become so much more in this sophomore season of "The Vampire Diaries" also. Caroline, once self consumed has be reborn (pun intended) into a sincerely selfless creature. The kind of loyalty Caroline manifests is something Tyler has never experienced. A shining example is how she remains, cradling him on the floor with her vamp strength while he labors to exist in his torment. Finally, as Tyler crests into an uncontrollable state, Caroline is forced to leave. Even as Tyler is chomping at her through the bars, the tears still come and Caroline is left wanting and remorseful because she has to abandon her friend and succumb to forgivable fear.
"I'm a man of my word Elena, I make a deal, I keep a deal."
Daniel Gillies character Elijah has been a scary mystery since he arrived on the scene in "Rose". I'm not gonna lie, Elijah totally creeped me out from jump. I thought, "He's one hell of a villain!". Elijah's revelation about Klaus's plan and delusional state of mind makes sense. That, coupled with the deal he made with Elena has me hoping he's not just a big fat co-conspirator keeping all the sacrificial puzzle pieces safe for the demented-one. Elijah's posture and subtle movements make him very disarming, which also makes you want to believe him. He hasn't lied thus far, that we know of, plus he's all like; I'm so powerful and awesome, why would I lie? Lord knows the kids, the Brothers Broody and Barbie Vamp need the help if Klaus is as strong and deadly as everyone says. Elijah would definitely tip the scales in their favor. In addition, he has come up with the only plausible plan to date. I just hope it's not too good to be true, as with so many things TVD.
"The pleasure I'll get from watching you suffer is greater than any pain I'll ever feel."
"I don't love men who love other women, I think more of myself than that, but it doesn't mean I can't be your special friend."
I won't say much about Rose and I know there's a lot of hate in the TVD fandom for her, but she grew on me with that line. She further grew on me when she knowingly, without hesitation took the werewolf bite that was meant for Damon. As far as everyone knew a werewolf bite would kill a vampire, but Rose, for all intents and purposes, sacrificed herself for Damon. That's selfless and deserves notice. With that we learn that a wolf bite doesn't equal instant death, but does leave a nasty flesh eating wolf toxin behind, plus a whole host of other symptoms behind that we'll see January 27th when "The Vampire Diaries" returns.

EW had the chance to speak with Michael Trevino after Thursday's transformation episode, "By The Light Of The Moon". The new werewolf spoils about things to come, especially were Jules is concerned. "The Vampire Diaries" returns January 27th with an all new episode, "The Descent".
Can you tease where we’re headed with Jules? It’s interesting because we’re preconditioned to hate her because she’s threatening our vampires, but if it turns out she’s there to avenge Mason, that doesn’t actually make her bad.Photo Credit: Vampire Diaries Web, CW
How do I answer this without getting in trouble? Jules has motives. She’s coming to Mystic Falls to look over Tyler. She wants Tyler and she needs him. For what, I can’t say. But she needs Tyler and wants to take him under her wing, but might want to be a lot closer than Mason was with him.
“A lot closer than Mason was with him…”
Yeah. I think we can trust Jules. Whereas with Mason and Katherine, that little relationship wasn’t good.
How soon will Tyler find out that Caroline has been lying to him about her being the only vampire in Mystic Falls?
He’s gonna find out really soon, and that’s just a whole different situation then with Tyler and his feelings toward Caroline once he finds out she lied.

TV Squad‘s Maggie Furlong made a trip to Mystic Falls, a.k.a. Covington GA, to visit "The Vampire Diaries" set. A vampire, a werewolf, a witch, oh my!

Last night's episode, "By The Light Of The Moon" prepped us perfectly for a windfall of story to come in 2011. There were huge chunks of mythology and purpose revealed last night and Executive Producer Kevin Williamson chatted with Popwrap about what's to come when the "The Vampire Diaries" returns January 27th. He spoiled about returning characters, Damon's emotional development, family ties and much more.
Special thanks to @Shirarose1 for the heads up.
PW: Which brings us to the moonstone, its non-destruction, Luca and Jonas. What's up there?
Kevin: The second half of the season will really delve into the relationships between Jonas, Elijah and Klaus – who is still off camera at this moment. We start to answer who they are, who they were, how they know each other, what they are to each other, what they’re up to and how Mystic Falls factors into it. And by Mystic Falls, I mean Elena.
PW: Speaking of Klaus, have you guys started think about who should play it, how they should play it and when they’re going to play it?
Kevin: Yes we have started casting, but we’re not sure what episode he’ll appear. We don’t know if we should go old world gentlemen – very proper and prim. That’s kind of the expected way to play it. Then we could go and cast someone unusual -- but we don’t want to blow the casting. If it takes us a little longer to find the right actor, we’ll take it. We have a lot of story to tell before he shows up and a lot of story to tell after he shows up.
PW: What about bringing back old faces -- Katherine dropped the Isobel bomb on Stefan, will we see Mia Kirshner again this season?
Kevin: Maybe. We do utilize her character, but whether or not she comes to Mystic Falls, I’m not sure. We haven’t broken those story lines just yet. We see a world in which she could, but we also see a world in which she doesn’t. So we’re just trying to figure out what best serves us to get to the finale.
PW: Another big season long question started to get answered last night when Rose began to succumb to Jules' werewolf bite. But I'm guessing fans shouldn't assume that means she's going to die.
Kevin: We implied that a bite was fatal, but those legends are tricky. You don’t always know. We are going to show what happens when a werewolf bites a vampire in very much the same way the Tyler curse played out. I think there needs to be a true jeopardy when a werewolf bites a vampire, or there’s no real conflict. Then a vampire can just kill anyone. The werewolf needs to truly be a threat to a vampire on a full moon. They need to want to stay home, lock their doors and hide because if you get nicked, it’s a horrible, horrible, horrible ordeal.
PW: I've really come to like Rose -- and clearly Damon has as well.
Kevin: Rose and Damon aren’t meant to be together. She is a mirror into his humanity. She came in, helped him out, gave him some information and is now saying, we’ll never love each other because you’re in love with Elena. It’s all about Elena – the whole point of Rose is to throw up a mirror and let Damon see what he is. She’s so open about Damon loving Elena. Rose is just one more step in Damon’s journey.

Vampire Diaries News: Kevin Williamson Explains His Potential Companion Series That's Choke Full Of Scary, Horrible Surprises'
Kevin Williamson, Executive Producer of "The Vampire Diaries" dishes on his possible new companion show to EW
. He talks premise and what the show will and won't be.
If you recently heard the potential companion series to The Vampire Diaries exec producers Kevin Williamson and Julie Plec (pictured) are in the early stages of developing described as “The X-Files meets Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” you may be imagining Alaric (Matt Davis) teaching history at a new high school. “That’s exactly what the show is not,” Williamson tells EW on the latest edition of the TV Insiders podcast, with a laugh. “That was the wrong characterization. I was like, ‘What is Buffy meets The X-Files?’ They’re completely at odds totally. It’s neither. It’s set on a college campus. There’s a little bit of some paranormal investigation involved, but it’s more about the characters. It’s more about what Julie and I like to do, which is create a world of people. A young girl goes to college, and it turns out there’s a lot more going on.”
That’s all he wants to give away for now. “Warner Bros. doesn’t like us to talk about shows that may never happen,” he says, laughing again. “We don’t know if we’ll get it written in time, or if this will be for this year, next year…. But it’s just something we’re both very passionate about because we’ve got this whole world and this whole sort of mythology about this girl and this journey that she takes. It’s full of scary, horrible murder and surprises, and all the twists and turns that we love to do, but once again it is a story about epic love. That’s what we’re about here at The Vampire Diaries. And that’s sort of why you call it a ‘companion piece,’ is because you will see those similarities in the show. You know, a bunch of fun characters that you can visit every week and watch them go through all these scary, twisty story lines, but it all leads to some greater story about epic and tragic love.”

"The Vampire Diaries" had an outstanding Fall Finale and Michael Trevino~Tyler Lockwood is certainly MVP in my book. We have lots to look forward to in 2011. "The Vampire Diaries" next new episode, "The Descent", is scheduled to air January 27th after the holiday hiatus and the CW has kindly released the promo and an extended promo.
As we already know, Carina MacKenzie was onset of "The Vampire Diaries" the last few days. We can know share her interview with always charming Ian Somerhalder. He spoils about Season 2 and some upcoming nudity, accompanied by candles and Mr. Bubble of course ;).
I happened to be on set for Somerhalder's 32nd birthday, which he spent... well, naked. "It's been amazing. I apparently came into this life in my birthday suit, and I just spent the last four hours in a scene in my birthday suit," he laughs.
The scenes in question were shower scenes filmed in Damon's bathroom in the Salvatore mansion. Yes, girls... Damon finally has his own bathroom - and his own bedroom. I got to take a sneak peek of the new sets, and I'll tell you this - Damon's bedroom is very different from Stefan's and represents his character beautifully.
"There's big everything in there," Somerhalder teases. "It's awesome."
There has been such a buzz about tonight's episode of "The Vampire Diaries", "By The Light Of The Moon". EW had an interesting chat with Candice Accola~Caroline Forbes about what will happen post Tyler transformation. She also spoils and teases future episodes of 2011.
Where will Tyler and Caroline’s friendship go post-transformation?Read the full interview here.
The biggest thing to remember is that Caroline has been lying to Tyler. So even though there has been a really wonderful friendship that’s grown, it’s based off of lies to protect him and those around him. He thinks that she’s the only vampire town. He doesn’t know that werewolves can kill vampires. There are lot of things that she’s kept in the dark from him, and secrets don’t stay secrets in Mystic Falls very long. When that comes out, that’s going to affect their relationship, for sure.
Looking ahead: We haven’t seen Caroline’s mother in a while. Is there any story line brewing there?
No. You will see Sheriff Forbes, but there’s not a lot of interaction between Caroline and her mom. That is a story line that will need to be told. But actually, [actress] Marguerite MacIntyre hurt her leg, so she’s having to rest for a little while. She’s just physically not able to be here. So there will be a temporary absence of the sheriff, but she will be back as soon as she’s up and running. I think she tore a ligament or something in her leg, and she had to have surgery. It was one of things there where she was like, “Yeah, it just kept bugging me and bugging me,” and finally she went in, and she was like, “Oh, that’s why it’s been hurting to run and go to spinning class.” Yeah, silly. She’s resting and getting better."
Kristin Dos Santos of EOnline had and amazing chat with Ian Somerhalder. He talks about his love life on-screen and off-screen.
Carina MacKenzie of Zap2it had the awesome pleasure of being on-set with "The Vampire Diaries" these past few days. She made her rounds and talked with not only Michael Trevino, but Candice Accola and Ian Somerhalder about today's highly anticipated Fall Finale, "By The Light Of The Moon", and what's in store for Michael's character, Tyler. The spoilery goodness is free flowing for the TVD fandom, so enjoy and tune in tonight at 8/7c.
There is one thing that everyone from Michael Trevino's co-stars to showrunners Kevin Williamson and Julie Plec agreed on unanimously: this is Trevino's episode to shine, and it's a story that's been well-earned.
"Though the promos have focused heavily on the 'triangle' drama, honestly the episode really belongs to Michael Trevino, Tyler, as we watch him go through the most harrowing experience of his life," Plec says, referring to the CW's episode trailer, which may not do the actual plot of the episode much justice.
In fact, the transformation was Trevino's most challenging experience as an actor. "By far," he says. "In all the TV stuff that I've done, guest stars and recurring, the two days of shooting the transformation scene by far was the hardest, most challenging I've ever done."
Luckily, Trevino didn't have to go it alone. Marcos Siega, former supervising producer, returned to "The Vampire Diaries" while they filmed this important hour. Trevino found comfort in Siega's presence.
Here is more from Wetpaint's interview with the man of TVD Thursday, Michael Trevino~Tyler Lockwood. The "Vampire Diaries" up and coming star chats about his on-again, off-again BFF Matt and spoils about being on the Salvatore's bad side.
WP: Please — Tyler’s a bit of a horn dog. How can they be just friends?Read the full Interview here.
MT: That too. [laughs] On set I was talking with one of my producers about how Tyler has this hat trick. He went after Vicki Donovan, Matt’s sister. And then he goes and kisses Matt’s mother. Now he’s “friends” with Matt’s ex girlfriend. It’s a little weird. So Tyler I guess does get around.
WP: About Matt! Maybe a better question would be is there friendship in the future for Ty and Matt.
MT: I believe so. I mean, Tyler doesn’t know that he was compelled. But after what happened at the party you would think that they would apologize. Tyler has definitely messed up on that but Matt has apologized for it. So I think that the roles are reversed this time. I think they will be fine.
WP: Before the whole wolf thing, Tyler didn’t really rank on the Salvatore radar. But now he’s Damon’s enemy. What’s going to happen with that?
MT: I think with the information that they’re finding about how one werewolf bite can kill a vampire it is going to cause trouble. Damon’s not going to want any werewolves just casually roaming Mystic Falls. I think that he’s going to have a problem with that. He’s going to want to address it. How far and deep he goes into it, I don’t know. But he’s going to have to do something about it. And then maybe he’ll have to deal with what part Stefan has in getting involved in this new werewolf lineage thing in Mystic Falls.

Vampire Diaries Episode 2.11 "By The Light Of The Moon" More of Ian Somerhalder's Spoilery Goodness, Including A Bathtub Scene
Ian Somerhalder is definitely making his rounds today. He spoiled a little more to EW about this week's episode, "By The Light Of The Moon", which airs tomorrow at 8/7c on the CW.
What can he tell us about the Salvatore Brothers’ relationship in this episode? ”Stefan is locked in that cave. In all actuality, it’s kind of what Damon’s been dreaming about. But truthfully, Damon wants to get his brother out of there. He’s gonna try really hard, once he works out what he needs to work out. As much as he wants to kill his brother sometimes, he loves him. Damon can’t imagine being stuck in that cave with Katherine. That would just suck. There’s such a commonality of pain between these two guys. They’re in love with the same two women. Two of them — it’s absurd. [Laughs] And the protagonists that have come to town, they mean business. They’re gonna wreak some havoc, and they’re gonna cause some problems for us, that’s for sure.”
Ian also gave his numerous female fans the spoiler of the season, truly an early Christmas present. Unfortunately, we won't be seeing this episode until sometime early next year. No worries though, it's just more to look forward to when "The Vampire Diaries" returns in 2011.
"I know I'm going to be naked in the shower. I'm naked in the shower in about an hour, and Damon's taking a bubble bath with candlelight and a glass of wine at the end of the episode."

It's a spoilerama, as Kristin put it in this interview with Ian Somerhalder, who dishes on this Thursday's new episode of "The Vampire Diaries", "By The Light Of The Moon". He spoils about the upcoming Stefan/Katherine cave sex, Elena and his surfacing humanity.

The annual "Vampire Diaries" Christmas marathon is upon us once again. The CW has released the promo for their week long marathon starting December 13th. Five days and ten episodes will help us through the holiday hiatus, hopefully ;).
Special thanks to Vampire Diaries Net for the heads up.
This is a super cute interview that Michael Trevino did with TVGuide Magazine. He talks transformation and preparation for his big episode, "By The Light Of The Moon", which airs this Thursday on the CW.
Thanks to EW "Vampire Diaries" fans have a conformation about this Thursday's steamy sex scene between Stefan and Katherine. Not only is it intense, but Nina Dobrev has the bruises to show for her hard work playing two characters on the CW's hit.
Stefan (Paul Wesley), now trapped in the tomb with Katherine (Nina Dobrev), giving in to her. If the teaser is any indication (watch it below), it could be the hottest captive sex scene since a certain cage scene on Lost. “First, Jeremy getting trapped in the tomb was like, Katherine wins! When Stefan came in, she’s like, ‘Wow, I couldn’t have planned this better if I tried. The one person I want to be stuck with, here he is, and now he’s got nowhere to go. I will seduce him, I will tease him, I will anger him.’ The line between love and hate truly is very, very thin,” Dobrev says. “So she has a chance to egg him on, and he can’t do anything about it. He has no choice but to listen, and yeah, it is a very kind of sexy, manipulative scene, and he gives in. It’s pretty crazy.”Read the full interview here.
Thanks to Andrea of Behind Blue Eyes I can share the video from Jimmy Kimmel with the massive "Vampire Diaries" fandom. Ian Somerhalder appeared on Jimmy Kimmel last night, bearing a gift of pizza he made from his pizzeria, "McClain's Pizzeria". Somerhalder, his sister and brother-in-law jointly own the pizzeria that is located in Idaho.
Special thanks to Vampire Diaries Online for the heads up.
The spoilers just keep coming for "The Vampire Diaries". Thanks to Kristin we have a tasty tidbit to pass along about this Thursday's episode, "By The Light Of Moon".
@mcmegan (via Twitter): Any Christmas miracles on The Vampire Diaries? Like Stefan getting out of cave and not sleeping with Katherine? You've seen the previews, right?
Let's just say I had a nice, lengthy discussion with Ian Somerhalder today about "cave sex," and it certainly sounds like it's not just "cave first-basery" or "cave hold-handery." Sorry, Stelena fans!
Thanks to Hollywood life I have a juicy spoiler to pass along to "The Vampire Diaries" fandom. Looks like Uncle John Glibert~David Anders will be making a trip back to Mystic Falls.
Hold onto your seats for this one, TVD fans! We’ve learned from a source on The Vampire Diaries set that actor David Anders will be returning to the show for episode 2.13. Not only that, but his character, John Gilbert, knows how to kill Elijah — the vampire who is after his daughter, Elena.

This morning Dawn Olivieri tweeted she will be guest starring on "The Vampire Diaries", according to The Vault. She's best known for her roles "Heroes" and "True Blood" (she played Alcide’s beauty shop-owning sister, Janice). Special thanks to Vampire Diaries Net for the heads up.
Dawn is playing a local newscaster for Mystic Falls named Andie Star. “It looks like I will be spicing things up shall we say”, she tells The Vault. Andie is recurring in an undisclosed succession of episodes at this point in time.
Jim Halterman did a post "Sacrifice" interview with Executive Producer Julie Plec where she dishes on the fall finale of "The Vampire Diaries". She talks Klaus, Delena, Steferine and much more.
JH: Do we know when Klaus will finally appear on the show?
JP: No, no. The mystery of when we are going to meet him for the first time will be on-going. I think on the casting side it said a specific episode but that was just procedural. That has nothing to do with reality.
JH: And what’s Damon’s part in next week. Is he protecting Elena?
JP: Yeah, it deals with him having to live up to his promise to make sure Elena is protected and the way he chooses to do that is kind of funny. Funny and a little bit Damon-mean as far as Elena is concerned. It gives Damon a good laugh at the way he’s able to keep Elena from getting herself into any trouble. There’s also a new character coming to town named Jules (Michaela McManus) who comes looking for her friend Mason Lockwood and when Damon catches wind of that he realizes he has a problem that needs to be dealt with because, of course, as we know, Mason Lockwood is no more so he has to put the kibosh on the search for him.
Read the full interview here.
Earlier I posted the video from the Jay Leno Show where Ian Somerhalder appeared. Now, thanks to Jay I have a backstage video to share. Ian's part starts at 1:46 and he talks with Bryan about his foundation IS. Special thanks to Vampire Diaries Source for the heads up :).
