While our hearts are totally emotionally invested in Elena, Damon, Stefan and the rest of The Vampire Diaries cast, they're going to have to make room for some newbies very soon. When season six of The CW's hit drama premieres this October, six new cast members will make their Mystic Falls debut. Here's a roundup of who will be starring in the show and their character descriptions:

The Carrie Diaries' Chris Wood is playing “Kai, a charmingly unstable newcomer with the unsettling ability to seem normal as the situation demands. He can be both playful and obsessive with a mix of adolescent angst.”

Marco James from The Client List will play “Liam, an attractive and smart upperclassman at Whitmore College…cocky yet good-natured, he’s a med student who comes from a family of doctors.”

Colin Ferguon will come in as “Tripp…the head of a community militia who will do anything to protect his town.”

Gabrielle Walsh's character is “Sarah, [a girl] who comes to Mystic Falls with spunk, street smarts and a shady agenda.”

Jodi Lyn O’Keefe from Hit The Floor will play “Jo, a tough and accomplished doctor at the university hospital. She demands excellence from her students and has learned the hard way that there’s no room for error in her profession."

And finally, Jayson Warner Smith will be “the owner of a high-end hot rod shop.”

Whew — let's just let that sink in for a moment! With so many unanswered questions from season five, it'll be interesting to see the new crazy story lines TVD will be in for during season six!
