A new trailer for The CW's upcoming Vampire Diaries has gone live, and you can view it after the jump.

The Vampire Diaries centers on a teenage girl named Elena who falls for a new handsome and mysterious student, Stefan, who turns out to be a vampire. Unfortunately, Stefan, a good vampire, has a brother named Damon who's not so good, and he's very interested in Elena. The series is based on the L.J. Smith book series (which pre-date Stephenie Meyers' Twilight books) and is from Kevin Williamson (Dawson's Creek) and Julie Plec (Kyle XY). The Vampire Diaries stars Nina Dobrev, Paul Wesley and Ian Somerhalder (Lost).

It premieres in the fall and will air Thursdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
