Our veins may be pumping with the sweet elixir of True Blood this summer, but come fall we'll be intoxicated once again with the sweet juice of The Vampire Diaries!!

Season 3's finale left us with such shock and anguish! How will Season 4 treat us??

Welp! Luckily for us (and you of course), we've come across some tasty spoiler delights courtesy of Julie Plec herself!!

The producer divulges:

ON ELENA GOING THROUGH LIFE AS A VAMPIRE

"How do you go to high school as a new vampire? How do you fall in or out of love? How does it change who you are and what you feel? … We get really excited when we talk about this [arc] because it feels so deliciously Season 1 all over again. It takes us right back to Stefan arriving in Mystic Falls, trying to hold himself together and not let anybody know who he was. Now, we get to watch our heroine go through all of that."

ON KLAUS AND ALL THE DRAMZ THAT COMES WITH HIM

"I will tell you this — and I haven’t said this before: Our intention was to kill Klaus at the end of Season 3. We created the character last year… and our intention was, that after a long, arduous year of trying to vanquish and defeat the villain, our heroes would prevail and he would be no more. But when you have actors [like Joseph Morgan] who are that good, making such a distinct mark in the roles that they are playing, you have to let your storytelling evolve and wrap around that a little bit."

ON MEAN GIRL REBEKAH

"What I’m excited about with Rebekah, specifically, is that we have never had a true antagonist on a human/teenage level. With Rebekah, who is so vulnerable and damaged but has that tough exterior, we get to see a queen bee in action; we get to see a mean girl. As we get into the second half of their senior year, here’s Rebekah, still in Mystic Falls, heading back to school, completely ostracized from the community of people that she knows because of what she did to Elena and Matt. She’s completely loathed by the one guy [Matt] that she had a crush on, and also by her past love [Stefan]. What’s she going to do about that? How does a vampire, who has all kinds of mind control capabilities and sass, carve her way into the high school world when the people that we love hate her guts? Once she gets over the hump of being “World’s Most Hated” in the yearbook, how will she live? And what will her life be like?"

ON THE CENTER OF SEASON 4

"Obviously, Elena and her journey are going to be front and center, but one of the things that we’ve finally been able to do over the past year is dig much deeper into the other characters — their lives, their wants, their loves. We’ve given Matt Donovan his due, and given Bonnie her time in the sun, and Caroline especially has evolved into a leading lady in her own right. So, this is going to be the year that ‘Donna Martin graduates. This is our friends finishing out their high school lives and their lives in Mystic Falls, and each of them is going to have a transitional journey about where they go and what they’re meant to be. It’s going to be a really exciting year because it’s one of endings as much as it’s about new beginnings."

Oooh Julie… you teasing minx, you!!

She just gave the best gab ever… yet we're still somehow dissatisfied.

Why?

Oh. That's right. Because we'll never fully be happy until a DELENA WEDDING is confirmed. That's why. Ha! ;) (….but no, seriously.)

    If the whole Klaus and "Originals" storyline didn't suck such huge balls, I might be excited about the actor returning. Not sure how much more of his antics I can take. "DO this for me, or I'll KILL everyone you love!"

    Yawn….

    Well that was a tease! lol I know I have been watching for 3 seasons and the only thing they have to do to make me happy in season 4 has nothing to do with who is the bad guy, or high school life ect - they just have to FINALLY let Damon be the one. I have had enough of "It is always Stephan" so Damon for the win! PLEASE!!!! ;)

    DAMON DAMON DAMON DAMON DAMON DAMON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I LOVE him! One thing I don't like about Elena is that she keeps choosing Stephen. LET DAMON HAVE HIS CHANCE IN THE SUN! DELENA ALL THE WAY BABY!

    I say Elena should choose Damon in the end because he's honestly way sexier and he met her first!!!! Come on there meant to be, and hopefully in season 4 Elena will realize the obvious :) )) <3

    Given Bonnie her time in the sun??? Are you serious? Bonnie started out as the second leading lady on this show in season 1 and under Plec's guidance has been demoted again and again until she's practiacally an extra!
