candice accola vampire diaries upfront 'The Vampire Diaries' Candice Accola to star in 'Dating Rules From My Future Self' Season 2Good news, “Vampire Diaries” fans! If you can’t get enough of Candice Accola on The CW, you’ll get to see much more of her this year. She’s taken on the lead role in Season 2 of the web series “Dating Rules From My Future Self,” produced by Alloy Entertainment.

Candice will play Chloe Cunningham, a 26-year-old woman who gets face-time messages from her 36-year-old self, giving her advice as she navigates her romantic entanglements. Candice will also receive producer credit on the series, according to THR. She’ll be joined by “Modern Family’s” Reid Ewing, best known as Haley Dunphy’s boyfriend Dylan.

“Vampire Diaries” fans may already be familiar with the series, since Taylor Kinney (Hot Uncle Mason himself!) starred in the first season. Though Kinney won’t be back for more “Dating Rules,” since he’s busy with NBC’s “Chicago Fire,” Season 1 lead Shiri Appleby will be returning for the first episode of the show. She’ll also produce and direct.

Season 2 will have 6 episodes, each under 10 minutes. Don’t worry — production will wrap in plenty of time for Candice to head back to Atlanta for Season 4 of “The Vampire Diaries.”

In the meantime, watch Season 1 of “Dating Rules” to familiarize yourself with the show — and, okay, to get reacquainted with Mr. Kinney. You know you want to.
