Someone's got a vampire obsession: Janina Gavankar is headed to "The Vampire Diaries."

The "True Blood" actress has booked a (possibly) recurring role on the CW series as Tessa, a "beautiful, exotic and self-assured woman who comes to Mystic Falls to rekindle an old flame."

When reached for comment, The CW confirmed her role to The Huffington Post.

In addition to her role on "True Blood," Gavankar has also appeared on "The League," "The Goodwin Games," "The Exes" and more. Gavankar joins other newcomers Olga Fonda, Kendrick Sampson and more.

"The Vampire Diaries" returns to the CW on Thurs., October 3 at 8 p.m. ET.
