The wait is almost over — just a few more weeks until the Vampire Diaries Season 5 and The Originals double premiere. Is everyone ready for October 3? If not, this new CW sizzle reel may help.

To showcase all of its fall shows, the network pieced together snippets from new and returning programs, and even though the shots of each are brief, we really like what we’re seeing.

The short video gives us a few peeks of  Damon, Elena, Stefan, and Caroline, plus Klaus storming into a room and looking hot, Marcel defending his territory, a glimpse at the fabulous masquerade ball The Originals was casting for a few weeks back, and lots of angry, bared fangs. Basically, everything we love.

The CW sure knows how to wind us up! Our minds are running even more rampant with the possibilities now. What about you?

Did you wish this video showed us more, or do you want to be surprised about the premieres this fall? Let us know in the comments!
