Juuuust kidding. It’s been a couple years since the entire “Vampire Diaries” cast assembled for a photo shoot — but for Season 4, there are new pics of everyone. Zap2it can exclusively reveal the brand new cast photo gallery, which includes not only series regulars like Ian Somerhalder, Nina Dobrev, and Paul Wesley, but also the most significant guest stars, like Daniel Gillies, Torrey DeVitto, and Claire Holt.

From Klaus’s signature smirk and Caroline’s sunny smile to Elena’s new vampire swagger, the pics remind us of what we love most about these characters — and no, we’re not just talking about how hot they are.

Click through our photo gallery for all of your favorites, and some scoop on what we can expect when Season 4 premieres at 8 p.m. EST on Thursday, Oct. 11.

Just one (very, very long) month to go, vamp fans!
