Zap2it has the scoop on the future of the characters of The Vampire Diaries.
“The Vampire Diaries”: This season, the Mystic Falls gang will graduate from high school. In order to smooth the transition, viewers are going to start spending some time at the local university early in the season — remember, the unnamed school that Jenna attended while writing her thesis? Expect to meet a new recurring character, Professor Shane, who knows a thing or two about the paranormal. We’re hearing that initially, he’ll work quite closely with Bonnie. The story plays on some threads spun in an early Season 2 episode, “Bad Moon Rising.”
