The cast of "The Vampire Diaries" strike a pose either inside the Salvatore residence, in the Mystic Falls' woods or in front of bare walls for the latest promo of the series. The popular CW drama will soon enter the second season where Katherine is back terrorizing the vampire brothers and Elena.
The first episode of season 2 is aptly called "The Return". Picking up on the same night as last season's finale, Elena arrives home to a nightmare as she discovers Uncle John's and Jeremy's fate. At the hospital, Sheriff Forbes is comforted by Matt, Bonnie and Damon while she waits to hear if Caroline will survive the car accident.
After a confusing conversation with Elena about the night's events, Damon is the first to realize that Katherine has returned. Katherine's arrival sends Stefan and Damon on a path to find out what she wants, why she's back, and how much of a threat she is to the people they love. Meanwhile, still reeling from his father's death, Tyler is surprised when his charming and mysterious uncle, Mason Lockwood (guest star Taylor Kinney), arrives to console the family.
Beside the promotional shots, The CW has also released the stills of "The Return" two weeks ago. The series is back on screen September 9 at 8/7c.
