The Vampire Diaries -- FIRST LOOK

Here are some first look pictures The Vampire Diaries, set to debut Fall 2009 on The CW.

Pictured left to right: Ian Somerhalder as Daman, Nina Dobrev as Elena, Paul Wesley as Stefan.

The show is based on LJ Smith‘s book series. Stefan is described as “gloriously, amazingly, epically beautiful young man” who is actually a 200-year-old vampire who has a strong connection with Elena. His brother Damon, the evil of the two, has also taken a liking to Elena.

The Vampire Diaries airs on Thursdays @ 8PM ET/PT (right before Supernatural).

    WATCH THE VAMPIRE DIARIES Says:

    The Vampire Diaries books were actually published before Twilight so you could actually say Twilight ripped the Vampire Diaries off.

    calm down you ignorant iliterate twilight fanatics. twilight”s storyline was amazing, BUT it was poorly written.poorly directly.and it isn’ t the only vampire book out there. give this show a chance. oh and btw, elena is gorgeous as a brunnett. being blonde is overrated anyways!

    I have something very urgent to say..*ahem*

    Elena is supposed to have bright blue eyes and BLONDE hair because she is supposed to remind stefan of kristina.
    Damon is supposed to look big and powerful ( which he doesnt)
    Stefan is supposed to look strong but not as big as damon (which you can seein the picture stefan is bigger then damon)

    whoever picked these people to star in the show is stupid and clearly hasnt read the book, or paid enough attention to it.
    This is a really good book series and i along with lots of others will be furious if it gets screwed up like the twilight movie did. Its not that hard to amke it right. You dont even really have to ave imagination. All you have to do is READ THE BOOK!

    For the record, y’all should put your Twilight and Vampire Diaries books on a shelf for awhile and watch some actual blood-sucking vampires/V addicted humans on True Blood…something to really get your heart racing!

    watch the vampire diaries Says:

    I think Damon looks better than Stefan. Anyway we’ll have to wait to see if it is a good series.

    tassibelle Says:

    i am a twilighter and i think the vampire diaries is totally AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! how can it be a complete copy of twilight if it was written before twilight was even “dreamt”..by stephenie! and i’ve seen a few clips of this too it looks cool even though the casting IS lame. The Stefan is hot if you give it a good thought. Twilight Rules and The Vampire Diaries Rule! GET OVER IT PEOPLE. if you don’t like it DONT EFFING COMMENT IT!!

    tassibelle Says:

    @brooke:): well you obviously didnt read the book properly because Elena is meant to remind Stefan of someone called Catherine…not Kristina.

    tassibelle Says:

    @mander: yeah true blood looks cool i might even sit down and watch it.

    cindy Says:

    @charles: the books this show is based from came out before twilight.. in 1991 i think. and it is a lot like twilight.. who is a wanna be now?

    loli Says:

    OK elena is supposed to be blond, but this girl is soooooooo gorgeous that im fine fith it! And i would choose the guy who plays demon to play stefan! But trailers are HOT , THIS CAST IS SOOOO MUCH HOTTER THAN TWIGHLIGHT! I`ll definitely watch it!!!

    Isabella Black Says:

    I loved reading the books, and so I couldn’t wait for the TV show. I’m disappointed to find that Elena is the total opposite from what she is in the books. The guys are nicely chosen especially Ian. I still love it no matter what though. Like everything else, nothing can beat the books.

    @A_proud_twilighter:

    Actually the chip only prevented Spike from hurting LIVING creatures (ie; humans). That’s why he started killing other vamps for sport and later joined Buffy on patrol.

    smugfeline Says:

    @cassi:

    Besides even when he had the chip he could hurt other vamps, just not humans. he patrolled with Buffy in season 6

    JEREMyglover Says:

    Vampire Diaries was written 14 years before stupid twilight. please understand meyer copied lj smith not the other way around for those of you who only read stupid twilight and not else do some homework before posting stuff on the internet cause you look dumb when make accusations against something you know nothing of. meyer copied many books she said it was a dream my booty. she copied other books and made it as her own people. she changed a couple things like being sparkled but mostly her vampire human romance was all on bases of others. either way i loved the show. but i don’t get it why would someone arrest Nina for taking photos. its so stupid. anyways. love the show can’t wait for another episode

    Ian is in it so I will give it a go tomorrow night. Haven’t seen Ian Somerhalder in anything since HBO’s “Tell Me You Love Me” series.

    Kat. Says:

    Personally, I loved Twilight, hated the movie. This, looks really good. Though honesty, it’s a lot like twilight, but much much much better. In comparison, it totally beats Twilight.

    jane Says:

    i dont see how the color of her eyes or hair matter. It is a relativelydescent show. Very basic story so far but looks like it will soon get very complicated between the characters. So far loving the CW, for casting such beautiful people in their shows.

    Michelle Says:

    This is NOT a Twilight copy. Man, people these days are really stupid. If there was only 1 of every type of movie/TV show, there wouldn’t BE any more shows to watch. I can’t believe immature kids are judging this show without even trying to watch it.

    And I don’t understand what the big deal is! If you a person that’s tired of watching vampire shows, they don’t watch it? I don’t think anybody is pointing a gun at you and forcing you to watch.

    I personally think this doesn’t look so bad, because unlike some, I have an open mind.
