How quickly the time flies by! It seems like only yesterday that we were wrapping up Season 5 of The Vampire Diaries and dreading the summer hiatus, but now it seems that our favorite actors and actresses are flocking back to Atlanta to film Season 6! Check out this adorable reunion between Nina Dobrev (Elena Gilbert) and Kat Graham (Bonnie Bennett)!

Now, it’s no shocker that these two gals are as thick as thieves, but we have to say we’re pretty shocked to see Kat back this early. If you remember — you probably blocked it out like the rest of us — Bonnie’s fate was pretty much up in the air at the close of last season. She and Damon Salvatore (Ian Somerhalder) were trapped on the Other Side when it collapsed and were confronted by some mysterious white light in the final milliseconds.

Given the fact that Kat and Nina are already on the set and ready to get Season 6 started, we can assume that we’ll hopefully be seeing both of them in the premiere — though they probably will be on different planes of existence.


But hey, we’ve got more to worry about come the Season 6 premiere. This week has been filled with casting news that is sure to shake up the slightly stale series. First we heard that Gabrielle Walsh is set to play Sarah (who is supposedly “shady”) and then we learned that Colin Ferguson was cast as Season 6’s villain, Tripp, who is set to go head-to-head against Sheriff Forbes (Marguerite MacIntyre).

So far the only extremely good news is that Enzo (Michael Malarkey) is a series regular and he’s got his highlighter at the ready!

Are you glad to see Nina and Kat back in action? Hit the comments and sound off!
