'Vampire Diaries' cast talks Season 5

Shrieking Comic-Con fans greet show's cast

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 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 while appearing as Paul Wesley's Stefan. He not-so-discreetly informed the crowd that he wants to control them.

"It is Mystic Falls and essentially you can't be that happy for that long, so there's always got to be that drama," said Somerhalder.

The new season will also see some characters going off to college.

"Why are we pursuing higher education?" joked Wesley. "We're all murderers."

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

Season 5 of "The Vampire Diaries" premieres Oct. 10. on The CW.
