tvd-320-full-cast-tableau.jpgIt's about that time, "Vampire Diaries" fans. With just a few weeks to go before shooting resumes in Atlanta, the first Season 4 news is beginning to leak from Mystic Falls. This should go without saying, but -- if you're looking to be spoiler-free until the show returns in October, read no further. (Also, uh... good luck with that.)

Our merry gang of monsters and friends is about to grow a bit when a 16-year-old girl named April comes back to town. She's from Mystic Falls, so she remembers Jeremy ( Steven R. McQueen) and Elena ( Nina Dobrev) from their childhood, but she's been away at private school for the last few years. She decides to move back to town after a death in the family, so when we first meet her, she's grieving. Perhaps some of our favorite characters can relate. While we're not sure yet whether she's got a hidden agenda, we can tell you that she's smarter than first impressions may convey.

Producers are also looking for someone slightly more threatening. (By slightly, we mean a whole freaking lot.) They're seeking a "scary hot" -- emphasis on scary -- actor to play the imposing Connor. He's described as a "highly trained killing machine," so, you know... nothing too out-of-the-ordinary for a Mystic Falls newcomer.

Both roles are recurring, and we can expect them to be pretty significant in the first part of the season.
