Casting Alert: The Vampire Diaries Season 5 Welcomes Five New Characters

The Vampire Diaries Cast

The Vampire Diaries Cast

Our beloved Mystic Falls High graduates are heading off to Whitmore College in Vampire Diaries Season 5 and the dapper Originals are moving to New Orleans. So what does this mean for the fate of the fang-tastic CW series? Why, the opportunity to introduce smoking hot new characters of course!

According to Zap2It, Caroline (Candice Accola) will befriend an upperclassman on campus whose name is Jesse. This stud is brimming with confidence and is as “charming” as they come. However, viewers beware! Despite his sweet disposition and his wide-eyed gaze, Jesse probably won’t be falling for Goldilocks the way Klaus and Tyler have. This guy harbors an “understandable” grudge against vampires and hates on them more than non-Beliebers do on Justin’s diaper/genie pants. Yikes.

Additionally, TV Guide is reporting that Caroline and Elena — who will be living the dream as roommates — are going to find themselves embroiled in some major drama with a cruel professor who knows an awful lot about the town’s history and who is very focused on a research project aimed at helping humanity. (Are any Buffy the Vampire Slayer fans experiencing flashbacks to Professor Walsh’s class lectures right now? RIP Initiative.) Luckily, we hear that while this guy is not easy on the grading curve but he’s sure easy on the eyes!

So where does this leave Mystic Falls’s residential bad-boy Damon (Ian Somerhalder)? Well, according to TV Line, Mister Sassypants is going to have a run-in with a mysterious male doctor who happens to know all of his dirty little secrets. (Here’s to hoping there’s some sort of Pretty Little Liars cross-over in which Dr. Wren drops by town to shake things up!)

And wait — that’s not all! Two more characters are joining the cast, including a love interest for Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen). While the memory of Bonnie sacrificing herself to raise the veil and save Jer-Bear still brings tears to our eyes, we’re curious to meet this young lady. It’s sure going to take a lot to fill Anna and Bonnie’s shoes, that’s for sure!

As for the fifth newbie? The CW is keeping hush-hush about her but we do know that she’s an Eastern European beauty named Nadia, who crosses paths with Matt (Zach Roerig) and Rebekah (Claire Holt) at a bar. Interestingly enough, Bulgarian-born Katherine Pierce (Katerina Petrova) is Eastern European too which is a little too coincidental if you ask us. Something tells us these two might share a past. Still, we might be wrong — this is purely speculation.

So tell us, fang fans: Which of these new Vampire Diaries Season 5 characters are you excited to meet? Are there any actors/actresses you can envision in a particular part?

  7. Robin Said:

    Bonnie is my favorite character on the show and yet I have yet to see a reliable write up on her. I don’t see the point in throwing a guy constantly in Caroline’s face to get over her problems. How are Caroline and Elena supposed to be living “The Dream” when their B.F.F (Bonnie) is dead and only Jeremy can see her. Are they really that naive that they don’t care for their friend and forget about her? Are the writers going to make them forget Bonnie,the one that lays it on the line for everyone
