‘Vampire Diaries’ Season 4 Premiere Set for June 23 at 10 p.m. ET (10 p..m., PT) in the U.S. and Canada: Exclusive photos from the set
MTV News has obtained exclusive photos from a set visit to the U-M campus, where “Vampire diaries” creator/executive producer Julie Plec was in attendance.
While she was there, she took some time to chat with the students about their passion for the show, which returns for its fourth season on June 23.
The first season of “Vampires” saw the cast and crew on location for three weeks, and Plec told MTV News that she was excited to take time to see how the students in the dorms, and the staff at the university, were doing during those months.
“I have no idea what to expect, but I’m excited to go back to campus and see them,” Plec said.
“It was a great time.
It was so fun.
We were working hard and we had fun.
I loved it.”
As part of Plec’s visit to campus, she also took a closer look at some of the costumes and props used by the cast.
Plec noted that a lot of the props were made out of metal, which she noted is a common material for the costumes.
She also mentioned that the sets are made of recycled materials and the school uses recycled materials in the buildings.
For the season premiere, Plec and her team created the outfits worn by the main cast members.
“Vampirina” writer/exec producer Matt Thompson has been working with the cast on the season one costumes, which are based on the outfits used by Season 2’s season three lead, Veronica Mars.
“We’re doing all the same things that [Season 2] did, except we’re doing the outfits,” Thompson told MTV.
“And then they came up with their own idea for their own ideas.”
For the premiere, the characters’ outfits were also based on a prop from Season 1, but the costumes were completely different.
“I’m very excited because this is the first time we have seen the new costumes,” Plecc said.
Thompson, who also wrote the original season one finale, said that the season 2 costumes will likely be much different than the season 3 costumes that were used for the season two finale.
“That was one of the most fun experiences for me,” Thompson said.
“Vampire” season 4 premieres on June 21 at 10:30 p.p.m./8:30 a.m ET on MTV.
