'The Vampire Diaries' cast tease next season

By

SAN DIEGO (AP) — There's no peace for Mystic Falls.

The cast and crew of "The Vampire Diaries" gave shrieking Comic-Con fans a taste of what's to come in the fifth season during the CW supernatural CW series' presentation Saturday at the pop-culture convention. In footage shown before the panel, mind-bending baddie Silas addressed a group of Mystic Falls townsfolk appearing as Paul Wesley's Stefan and informing them he wants to control them.

"Vampire Diaries" executive producers Julie Plec and Caroline Dries said the new season will also deal with the ramifications of Nina Dobrev's Elena choosing romance with Ian Somerhalder's Damon over Stefan and Katherine involuntarily becoming human.

Dobrev, Somerhalder and Wesley were joined on the panel by co-stars Kat Graham and Candice Accola.

"The Vampire Diaries" returns Oct. 10.
