The first official poster for The Vampire Diaries Season 7 was unveiled at Comic-Con in San Diego this week.
And it appears to offer a few hints at what's to come to this fall.
Among the noticeable tidbits that stand out from this promotional photo are:
- ENZO! After having his role reduced on The Vampire Diaries Season 6, isn't it nice to see Michael Malarkey as a featured player here?
- CAROLINE! With Elena gone, it's rather clear Caroline will step into the role of lead female. She's right smack dab in the middle of the entire snapshot.
- THOSE EYES! We concluded Season 6 with the arrival of the Heretics and with what appeared to be a decimated Mystic Falls. All the main characters here are sporting very serious expressions, highlighted by upward-facing eyeballs.
This confirms what Ian Somerhalder has said: that The Vampire Diaries Season 7 will return to a certain darkness that permeated the series back in Seasons 1 and 2.
We'll post a higher quality photo of the poster when one becomes available, but let the countdown official begin to The Vampire Diaries Season 7 kicking off on October 8, 2015.
Here is what we hope to see take place throughout the new season:
