The Vampire Diaries
Don't get a Lockwood angry. You won't like them when they're angry. In The Vampire Dairies' September 9 premiere, Tyler Lockwood (Michael Trevino) is surprised to see his long-absent, black sheep of the family Uncle Mason (Taylor Kinney) turn up for the funeral of his dad, the mayor. But a bigger surprise comes when Mason drops the bomb that werewolfism runs in the Lockwood bloodline...

The Vampire Diaries
Villain vampire Katherine, who once turned the Salvatore brothers into sexy undead fangers, has returned to Mystic Falls — and boy, is she ready to cause some trouble. Vampire Diaries executive producer Julie Plec reveals that while the boys will discover her true identity quickly — since there was that little mix-up in the finale when Damon kissed Elena, but it was really Katherine! — the love triangle will get even more complicated in Season 2.

Got any scoop on The Vampire Diaries' new season? — Tara
MICKEY: The presence of werewolves in Bon Temps, er, Mystic Falls makes uncomfortable bedfellows of the brothers Salvatore and Alaric. "What I love about Alaric and Damon is that they are both hopeless romantics blinded by love," Ian Somerhalder tells us. Conveniently, a hottie grad student from Duke will round out their wolf-hunting pack.
Is the CSI: NY season finale cliff-hanger going to get a proper resolution? — Christina
ADAM: You bet. The new season picks up right after the finale's events, and somebody will be carried away in a body bag. Then...
Bret Easton Ellis
Is TV ready for Bret Easton Ellis? Ever since the 1985 release of his best-selling tale of L.A. youth-gone-amoral, Less Than Zero, young Hollywood — including television faves like James Van Der Beek, Ian Somerhalder and Austin Nichols — have populated the feature-film adaptations of Ellis' edgy, unsettling novels. Now, with the 25-years-in-the-waiting publication of the engrossing Zero sequel, Imperial Bedrooms, Ellis is gearing up to take on the small screen. If a certain cable network has the guts, that is...
Nina Dobrev, Vampire Diaries
Bewitched, I Dream of Jeannie and The Patty Duke Show all did it way back in the '60s, and next season on The Vampire Diaries, Nina Dobrev's Elena will make her onscreen debut on the same screen with Nina Dobrev's Katherine, who made her dramatic return to Mystic Falls posing as Elena in May's season finale...

On the CW's breakout hit The Vampire Diaries, Ian Somerhalder plays a nearly 170-year-old man who — perhaps unwittingly — became a vampire as a teen. Though the actor's luck has been indisputably better than that of his character, Damon Salvatore, both have had the same response to the twists in their lives: outright glee.
For Damon, that giddiness manifests itself in the smirky, wanton torment of the people who surround him. In Somerhalder, fortunately, it takes a more gracious form.
"Right now, where I am, doing what I'm doing, it's exactly where I want to be," he says.

As Vampire Diaries wraps up its first season (Thursday at 9/8c), look to learn...
Matt Davis tells TVGuide.com that it's looking pretty likely that Alaric Saltzman, the teacher and part-time vampire slayer he plays on The Vampire Diaries, will be back for Season 2. To commemorate that good news, we decided to count the ways we love Alaric.
1. Alaric's a great foil for Damon.
Alaric first teamed up with Damon Salvatore (Ian Somerhalder) to save Damon's brother Stefan (Paul Wesley); this time the odd pairing will have to protect...
