Ian Somerhalder has been adorable all week on Instagram, cuddling with his pregnant pup and holding up signs about The Vampire Diaries’ impending premiere, and he took it to the next level on October 3.
In honor of Season 5 finally hitting TV screens around the world, he puckered up with his last countdown sign, laying a big kiss on a piece of paper that said, “TONIGHT #TVD.”
His gorgeous eyes are peering up, giving us a full view as he plants a big one on the piece of paper. Unfortunately, the camera is so zoomed in that you can’t see anything else about his outfit — we just know he wasn’t shirtless — but he did provide quite a caption.
"#TVD Tonight 8 PM Eastern 7 Central Time! I'm Live Tweeting in a bit- TUNE in, watch it LIVE with me, otherwise they will cancel the show if not many people watch,” he wrote. “I mean, unless you're cool with a life containing NO Vampire Diaries...Just sayin’.”
While the ratings were down last night, based on the 150,000 likes (and counting) on Ian’s photo, we’re guessing TVD is in no danger of getting canceled. If you missed the epic Season 5 premiere, check out our recap, then hit the comments below with your favorite moments.
Catch the next episode of The Vampire Diaries on Thursday, October 10 at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
