The Vampire Diaries Season Premiere to Introduce New Students, Vengeful World Traveler

by at . Comments

With months to go until The Vampire Diaries Season 5 kicks off (on October 10!), The CW has released a few casting notes regarding the opening episode.

Who will we meet when the action shifts from high school to Whitmore University? The following characters, at least two of whom are likely to recur according to SpoilerTV, will be introduced on the premiere:

  • Nadia, described by the network as an emotional beauty in her 20s who has traveled around the world on a "mission of vengeance." (UPDATE: Olga Fonda has landed this role.)
  • Jesse, an upperclassman in his mid-20s. (UPDATE: Looks like Jesse will be getting close to Caroline).
  • Megan, also in her 20s, hard working and especially intelligent.
Elena Gilbert at Graduation

This is all a bit vague, of course, but it's still fun to play the casting game!

Visit our Vampire Diaries forum now and throw out a few suggestions.

UPDATE: The premiere will be titled "I Know What You Did Last Summer."

It's NOT released by CW, it was by spoilertv . they posted an exclusive. Show me a link to the CW site where this was released. Sigh. Shame the site owner can't respect other sites scoops.


Hope they pick a hot guy to be Jesse.


@Sally Honey if U can't read the text says: The CW has released a few casting notes regarding the opening episode. No one got scoop it's well known information! TVfanatic is just sharing it!


Do you just copy others peoples scoop and pass it off as your own? loser


Nadia will probably go after Katarina she has a messy past and Damon and Jer will try to protect her. Or She will confuse Elena for Katarina and attack her. The girl and the Nerd are there to mess wit Caroline probably. Can't wait for S5! Hopefully Julie does it better than the 90210 crew which totaly messed up the College journey!
