Breathe a sigh of relief, fans of The Vampire Diaries! The breakout show (and recent People's Choice Award winner for best new drama) is set to return on Jan. 21, ending its hiatus and bringing back Ian Somerhalder, Paul Wesley, and their combined 12 abs. The story is set to pick up, too, with new characters and facets to the current mysteries, and I've got a nice little sneak peek of the first two episodes right here. You can also take my Vampire Diaries quiz in the meantime!
