Vampire Diaries Press Release Teases New Season 4 Villain

by at . Comments

Klaus is not dead. Julie Plec has made this clear in multiple interviews since The Vampire Diaries Season 3 finale aired.

But she's also teased a new villain on the way for season four (which will premiere in October, The CW announced today, along with its upcoming schedule) and a new network press release makes the same mention.

TVD Core Four

It reads, regarding what's ahead:

Season Four begins with the knowledge that everything is changing. As Elena and her friends enter into the final stretch of high school before graduation sends them off on different paths, their bond to their home town of Mystic Falls takes on a deeper meaning when a new villain seems intent on destroying it.

React now and be sure to get your first look at Beauty and the Beast, which will follow TVD this fall on Thursday nights!

would be great if new villain was the kitsuns from the books?????


Upto season3 klaus is gonna b a dangerous villan coz he has no humanity insyd,he kild his father,mother & siblings of him & nw whoz gonna b a villan in season4


i hope season 4 will be like the books with all the villians because elena is a vampire now so it is sort of hedding to that direction the only difference is that elena was killed by rebekah not katherine and, misao and shinichi ain't around yet.:(


Omg did elena's get turned into a vampire at the end of the last ep in season 3 coz she woke up after being dead under water and the at the hospital I think she gave her vampire blood so she wouldnt die


Bring back Kol!


I hope Tatia comes into the storyline and Katherine - Nina is going to be awesome as usual! I'm excited to see Elena as a vamp. Can't wait to see Bonnie's storylines and Klarowood! Matt/Jer teamwork and Originals.. this show is amazing.


Bonnie will go dark side / and Tatia will show up


I hope it's Shinichi and Misao cos they were my favourite villains in TVD books. They were so cool SPOILER-(Even if it was their fault Damon died but at least Stefan was out for a while)If they are the new villains then I hope they don't completely mess them up like they did with Sage (who was meant to be a male vamp with a pet wolf and some sort of bird of prey- for those of you who haven't read the books :( )


Big bad is gonna be an old old witch/warlock or a witch-warlock/vampire hybrid!! Calling it now


But I agree, if this wait makes the writers find some GOOD, I mean REALLY good ideas/plots I'm more than happy to wait ! But PLEASE nothing like the last season... brrrr *shivering while thinking about it*
