We seriously can’t wait until the Season 5 premiere of The Vampire Diaries on October 3! But until then, we’re hanging on every word the cast and crew says about the new episodes.

Executive producer and writer Julie Plec gave Celebified a few clues about the new characters fans will see when Elena and Caroline head off to college, saying, “You’ve got the mysterious new professor, and then you’ve got the nice guy [Jesse]. The nice, normal guy that thinks Caroline is super pretty and just wants to hang out with her.”

Ooh. Will Caroline stay faithful to Tyler? Plec hinted that there might be some struggles there, saying, “she’s [Caroline] like, but I’ve got a boyfriend, but my boyfriend’s not here … so … what am I supposed to do with you? because I think you’re really nice. You’re a good friend, but you’re really also very cute.” Cute, you say? Tell us more!

Julie also said that TVD will get bit more fun with the girls and their college experience: “We’ve tried to have a lot of fun with that college experience. The long-distance relationship, leaving home, leaving your family behind.” But, of course, there’s still danger lurking back in Mystic Falls, with Silas masquerading as Stefan and the real Salvatore brother trapped in a watery grave.

Only a few more weeks until go time, fans! We know you’re as excited as we are.
