'The Vampire Diaries' Latest Season 7 Previews Get Fans Hyped For it's Upcoming Premiere

Next week "The Vampire Diaries" will quench fans thirst for a new action-packed season seven full with heretics, broken hearts, new loves and some of the toughest threats Stefan, Damon, Bonnie, Caroline and the rest of the Mystic Falls gang has ever faced.

After losing Elena last season, "The Vampire Diaries" fans are waiting to see how the show will be handled without it's main character. During the entire month of September, "The Vampire Diaries" social media accounts gave fans a little glimpse into what to expect from season seven and we have to admit, it looks absolutely intense.

We've compiled all of the previews so far which also include and introduction to the new heretics (half witch, half vampire).

Valerie, Nora, Mary Louise, Malcolm, Beau and their leader Lily are back from their prison and ready to turn Mystic Falls upside down.

From the previews it looks like Stefan tries to take the proactive approach with a pact between the heretics and his Mystic Falls crew, however, like most pacts made on TVD it's totally going to fall through.

Down Elena, Stefan, Damon, Bonnie, Caroline and Matt now have to figure out a way to keep the citizens or Mystic Falls and themselves safe from the heretics.

You can enjoy all of the preview videos below and stick with Empty Lighthouse for live recaps of the show when it returns for a season seven premiere on Thursday, October 8 on CWTV.
