The Vampire Diaries Season 8: Kristen Gutoskie joins the cast

Written by

Containment's Kristen Gutoskie has joined the Season 8 cast of The Vampire Diaries. Read on for more details about her new character!

We've still got a few months to wait until The Vampire Diaries returns to our screens. The CW recently released the premiere dates for its fall lineup, with The Vampire Diaries Season 8 kicking off on Friday, October 21. Mark that down in your calendars, you don't want to miss it! Season 7 ended with both Damon and Enzo getting possessed by the evil thing in the vault, and disappearing entirely. Months later Bonnie, Stefan and Caroline pinpointed a string off murders along the West Coast, which they presume to be the work of Damon and Enzo. If you need a refresher or to catch up on the last season, then you're in luck! Thanks to a deal between Netflix and The CW, it looks like the latest season of The Vampire Diaries, along with other CW faves - The Flash, Arrow, Supernatural - to name a few, will be available to watch on Netflix sooner than usual.

We've also got some good news for Containment fans: Kristen Gutoskie has joined The Vampire Diaries Season 8 roster as Seline. Deadline describes her characters as "a warm, nurturing nanny of two young kids by day, and a small-town girl trying to find her place in a dangerous world by night. Bonded to her new 'family' in ways she can’t explain, Seline will fight desperately to protect the ones she loves." We're curious to know more about this new family of Seline's. Could she be a newly-turned vampire who has joined a group, or perhaps she belongs to a cult of mystical beings. On The Vampire Diaries the possibilities are endless! Gutoskie currently stars as Katie Frank on TVD showrunner Julie Plec's new drama Containment, which was not renewed for a second season. We're interested to see what Gutoskie brings to the table on The Vampire Diaries and whether she will be a recurring character or meet a tragic fate as many do in TVD storylines. Are you excited to see Containment's Kristen Gutoskie appear on The Vampire Diaries?
