Season 4 of The Vampire Diaries isn’t even over yet, and we’re already dreaming of the day we can get our own set of DVDs. Think about all those times we can rewind those hot hookups between Stefan (Paul Wesley) and Rebekah (Claire Holt) and Damon (Ian Somerhalder) and Elena (Nina Dobrev)!

Unfortunately that date is pretty far away. According to the Warner Bros. shop — where you can pre-order the DVDs or Blu-Rays now — the release is months away. The show’s fourth season box set will come out on August 27, 2013. Right now, the price is $41.99, which is definitely a steal, so taking advantage of the pre-order sounds like a great idea.

We know. We’ll have to endure an entire summer without new episodes or a way to rewatch Bonnie (Kat Graham) devolve into spirit tea-induced madness. Sure, we can use our DVRs, but it’s not as much fun to marathon when you have to fast forward through the commercials!

We’re excited to discover what will be included as special features on the DVDs. Season 3’s set had Stefan’s (Paul Wesley) descent into madness and the Originals’ timeline.

In Season 4, we watched Elena become a vampire, discover she was sire bonded to Damon, and lose her brother, Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen). Who wouldn’t want to memorialize such a monumental season in their DVD collection?

So what can you do until the DVDs are available? We have some suggestions:

Try to perfect that Damon eye thing.

Follow Joseph Morgan on Twitter for book suggestions.

Read some of those books.

Write fan fiction about the Five in different historical eras.

Debate the pros and cons of the cure storyline with your fellow TVD fans.

Try to pick a favorite Original.

Drool over the Season 4 box set cover art. It’s so steampunk!


Speculate about what will happen in Season 5.

August will be here in no time!
