'The Secret Circle' photos: First look at The CW's coven of witches

It's time to meet the coven.

The CW unveiled their 2011-12 schedule on Thursday, May 19, and in an expected (and might we add smart) move, they paired Kevin Williamson's new teen drama "The Secret Circle" with his hit show "The Vampire Diaries" on Thursdays.

"The Secret Circle" -- which Williamson and Andrew Miller are executive producing -- centers on a young girl ("Life Unexpected's" Britt Robertson) who discovers she is part of a secret coven of witches after moving to her mother's hometown to live with her grandmother. If that weren't enough, she also happens to be the key to unlocking a centuries-old battle of  good vs. evil.

The CW has released the first images from the show, which includes a cast shot of all six members of the coven.


From left to right, we have Thomas Dekker as Adam, Shelley Hennig as Diana, Robertson as Cassie, Louis Hunter as Nick, Phoebe Tonkin as Faye and Jessica Parker Kennedy as Melissa.

Other images released include a tense moment between Cassie and Faye, Cassie locked in a car that's on fire and some seriously gorgeous shots of Cassie and Adam. Williamson recently told THR to expect an epic love story between those two. The word soulmates may or may not have been used. One problem? He's dating Cassie's new best friend Diana, who is also the leader of their coven of witches.

Check out these photos from "The Secret Circle" and then head on over to the comments to tell us if you'll be entering the coven this fall.
