The Vampire Diaries Season 5 Premiere to Be Titled...

at .

Julie Plec has come out and revealed the title of the upcoming Vampire Diaries Season 5 premiere... and it has a decidedly Jennifer Love Hewitt-ish ring to it.

The October 3rd opener will be called "I Know What You Did Last Summer."

Based on what producer Caroline Dries told us at Comic-Con, the title makes sense.

The Season 5 premiere will feature the show's first-ever time jump, as we skip ahead three months from the dramatic events that concluded Season 4.

Elena and Damon are together and happy. Caroline is preparing for college. Jeremy is alive and able to communicate with Bonnie. And Stefan... okay, he's still at the bottom of that quarry.

What else do we know about The Vampire Diaries Season 5?

  • We'll actually see The Other Side.
  • We'll meet one of Stefan's vengeful ex-girlfriends.
  • Three new characters will debut: a doctor with knowledge about Damon's past; a mysterious Russian named Nadia; and an upperclassman named Jesse, to be played by Kendrick Sampson.
  • Despite her casting on The Originals, Claire Holt will portray Rebekah on the premiere.
