There is something about vampires that keeps viewers wanting more. "True Blood" has lustiness, "Twilight" has love and "The Vampire Diaries" has a delectable mix of both. And according to spoilers leaking about what's to come in "The Vampire Diaries" Season 4, it appears the new season is shaping up to be one of the series' most delicious yet.

The Season 3 finale of the hit CW show left viewers hanging with a major cliffhanger. Season 4 is jam-packed with new characters, emotional crises and some "hot vampire sex."

WARNING: This article contains spoilers.

"Vampire Diaries" executive producer Julie Plec revealed a little bit about Elena and Matt's relationship in Season 4 of the show in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter at the Television Critics Association Summer Press Tour.

"We’re going to see Matt be a champion for Elena," Plec told THR. "It’s going to be a nice friendship. Matt’s going to be strong and he’s going to try and stay strong. It’s not going to be easy for him. He knows he’s got to live well to earn the fact that he’s still alive and be a man about it."

The love triangle between Elena, Stefan and Damon might be put on the backburner, but ties that bind the three characters will always be present, regardless of how much each changes.

"Elena is changing as a character and Stefan is changing as a result of what she’s going through, Damon is changing as a result of what she’s going through so there’s always going to be shifts and turns and evolution of their relationships to each other that are always going to be right there," Plec told THR.

In June, WetPaint reported two new "Vampire Diaries" characters to be introduced this season: April and Connor.

A 16-year-old named April, played by Grace Phipps, returns to Mystic Falls after having been in private school for some time. She knows Elena and Jeremy from when they were kids, and WetPaint hints that "there may be more to her than meets the eye."

E! News reported that Connor, played by Todd Williams, is a "mysterious and powerful" new vampire hunter. He will make his "Vampire Diaries" debut in Episode 2.

With all these new characters, new love may blossom.

HitFix spoke with actor Paul Wesley earlier this month at Comic-Con about his "Vampire Diaries" character, Stefan, and a possible new romantic interest.

“Stefan is being her [Elena's] rock, but at a certain point Elena may blame him, and… he may turn to some darkness. I’ve overheard some rumors about Stefan having a new love interest, but I don’t know if that’s true or not,” Wesley told HitFix.

As for Elena (Nina Dobrev), Plec says that she has some "hot vampire sex" in Season 4.

Elena, who is a newly-turned vampire, will have her "first hot vampire sex" with either Damon, Stefan, Klaus, Matt or Elijah, Plec told TV Guide.

"Elena saved Matt's life, so he's going to end up paying it forward in a very peculiar way," she told TV Guide. "It's like she's going through puberty and vampire sex is going to feel like her first time."

Check out Season 4 premiere of "The Vampire Diaries" on Thursday, October 11 at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.

  • 'Emily Owens, M.D.'

    At long last, Emily Owens feels like she is an actual grown-up. She can finally put her high school days as the geeky-girl-with-flop-sweats behind her; she's graduated from medical school and is now a first-year intern at Denver Memorial Hospital, where she'll have the chance to work with world-famous cardiologist Dr. Gina Beckett - and where, not-so-coincidentally, her med-school crush Will Rider is also an intern. So why does everyone keep warning her that the hospital is just like high school? Emily soon finds out the hard way - her high school nemesis, the gorgeous, popular Cassandra Kopelson, is also just starting out at Denver Memorial, and it seems like they're rivals all over again - not only as surgical interns, but for Will's attention. Fellow intern Tyra Granger warns Emily that the cliques at Denver Memorial are all too familiar: the jocks have become orthopedic surgeons; the mean girls are in plastics; the rebels are in the ER, and Tyra has her own awkward place as the principal's kid - her father is the chief resident. Emily's the new kid all over again, and it's just as awkward as high school. Only this time around, Emily will have to balance the personal and emotional turmoil of social politics with the high-stakes world of life-and-death medical decisions. At least she has fellow intern Tyra and nerdy-but-cute resident Micah, to count on as friends. Emily is growing to realize that although she may be a geek, she may also grow to be a great doctor, flop sweats and all.
