The CW released four pics of Nina Dobrev, Ian Somerhalder, Joseph Morgan, and Paul Wesley for the upcoming third season, which is set to begin on Thursday, September 15. In the pics, the cast are holding bloody pieces of fruit as they stare sexily into the camera.

According to The CW press site, the first episode entitled, “The Hybrid,” will see Klaus (Morgan) put a plan in motion that will give him even more power, but things don’t go exactly as he had planned. Meanwhile, Damon (Somerhalder) and Alaric (Matt Davis) reluctantly go along with Elena’s (Dobrev) new strategy to find Stefan (Wesley), leading Damon into a dangerous fight with an unexpected enemy.
