Kristen Gutoskie Joins the Cast of 'The Vampire Diaries' After 'Containment' Cancellation

Kristen Gutoskie is heading to The Vampire Diaries, according to Deadline!

The 30-year-old actress is making the transition to TVD from another CW show, Containment, which was cancelled after just one season.

Containment‘s series finale air will air on July 19th and the eighth season of The Vampire Diaries is set to begin on October 21, 2016.

'The Vampire Diaries' Season 8: Who is the Mystery Creature?

'The Vampire Diaries' Season 8: Who is the Mystery Creature?

We have a long way to go until we get answers about The Vampire Diaries‘ villain for season eight, but this may hold you over for a bit!

Executive producer Julie Plec recently opened up about what took down Damon (Ian Somerhalder) and Enzo (Michael Malarkey) in the season finale.

“We are not calling it anything, we are waiting for Season 8,” Julie told Yahoo TV. “I mean, internally, we’re calling it something, but we’re not telling people what that is yet. It’s funny, this is the first time we’ve done this little story trick where we’re actually withholding the identity and mythology of the new villain from the audience before the next season. What could it be that’s been around for thousands of years? We didn’t see it, but it has some creepy ass monster hands, and it has the ability to get inside your heard and strip away everything good about you. There’s a nice mystery taking us into next season about what exactly this creature is.”

Julie added, “Bonnie (Kat Graham), out of everybody, is the one who’s going to be just paralyzed by this struggle. She has two men in her life — Damon, who’s a platonic, but also deep, soulful best friend, and Enzo, who has really become her one true love — and she lost both of them in one fell swoop. In addition to that, she also lost her magic. She’s starting at an absolute deficit in terms of being able to fix this problem. That’s going to have a great impact on her.”

WHAT DO YOU THINK will happen next season of TVD?

Candice King Loved the 'Unspoken Words' & Tension Between Steroline This Season

Candice King Loved the 'Unspoken Words' & Tension Between Steroline This Season

Candice King is talking all things #Steroline with JJJ.

We caught up with the 29-year-old Vampire Diaries actress at the 2016 CW Upfronts where she opened up about the big kiss between Caroline and Stefan (Paul Wesley).

“I think three years is a nice chunk of time for the characters to be apart,” Candice told us. “I loved the thick tension and unspoken words that needed to be said.”

As for whether she sympathized with Alaric (Matt Davis),” she said, “Yes, I did. I was like, ‘Does she give the ring back?’ Because maybe if she gives the ring back they can use it for [the twins'] college education. That’s even brutal.”

“She had to [break his heart],” Candice added.

The Vampire Diaries will return on Friday nights this fall.

What's Next for Stefan & Caroline in 'The Vampire Diaries' Season 8?

What's Next for Stefan & Caroline in 'The Vampire Diaries' Season 8?

We totally gasped when Stefan (Paul Wesley) and Caroline (Candice King) kissed in The Vampire Diaries finale!

Does this mean they are back together for good? Executive producer Julie Plec is dishing the goods!

“I always say that the saddest and truest rule of television is that there’s no drama in happy,” Julie told TVLine.com. “But there’s also the exception to that rule, which is that sometimes happiness is as comforting as soup when you’re sick. I’d really like to see Caroline and Stefan enjoy some of that comfort for as long as we can eek it out, before they have to stumble across another obstacle.”

She added, “Stefan’s really going to need her. He’s very determined to get Damon (Ian Somerhalder) back on track, and it’s not going to be an easy task. He’s going to need someone there for moral support.”

As for Alaric (Matt Davis) and the twins, Julie said, “Alaric made a beautiful statement, saying, ‘We are family, and we will always be family.’ He believes that in his heart, and that’s what she needed to hear. I fundamentally believe that they’ll be able to keep their unconventional family together and to stay strong for the girls and for each other.”

Nina Dobrev's 'Vampire Diaries' Voice Cameo in the Finale Explained!

Nina Dobrev's 'Vampire Diaries' Voice Cameo in the Finale Explained!

Were you surprised as Damon (Ian Somerhalder) to hear Elena’s (Nina Dobrev) voice in The Vampire Diaries season seven finale? Us too!

“In this particular case, she came in and did the ADR, [automated dialogue replacement],” executive producer Julie Plec told TVLine.com. “I reached out and said, ‘We can either cobble it together from a bunch of episodes, or you can come in and see everybody and do ADR. She chose to do it in person, which was great, because it was a nice little personal Nina visit.”

So will we see Nina again in the future?

“It’s what she and I kind of agreed on when she decided to move on, and it’s what I’ve got in my head,” Julie said. “Obviously things can change throughout time, if the show goes on longer than we expect it to, or if we all collectively decide it would be fun to bring her back earlier, and she wanted to. But in my opinion, she was very clear about what she wanted the next step in her life to be, and she’s doing a great job of achieving that. So I’m sticking with my side of the plan, which is to bring her back at the very end.”

WHAT DID YOU THINK of Nina Dobrev’s minor cameo?
