These photos only look bloody, but they’re all in good, sexy fun. The CW just released new promo pics for the upcoming season of The Vampire Diaries, which means we get a look at Elena (Nina Dobrev), Damon (Ian Somerhalder), Stefan (Paul Welsey) and Klaus (Joseph Morgan). It seems the network is making a push to bring VD from the teen drama doldroms and into the big (sexier, more salacious) leagues. With new shows like Hart of Dixie and Ringer, it seems that shift is happening all over the network’s schedule. Now enough of this speculation; ready, set, ogle!
