Also joining the “TVD” cast is “Evil Dead” actress Elizabeth Blackmore, who’ll come in as Valerie, a gloomy-doomier member of Lily’s fam. She’ll be causing some trouble around town for SURE — and not just because she’s got revenge on the brain.

tvd2At Comic-Con, The Vampire Diaries executive producer Julie Plec teased the casting, sharing that they’d be introducing “nasty, nasty, nasty girls” this season.

Fellow EP Caroline Dries acknowledged that the “challenge for the writers in season seven is topping the villain from the previous season. And by bringing in Lily’s family, it’s the first time we’ve seen our characters go against them and they go, ‘Oh, we don’t know what we’re doing.’ It’s very hard.”

Yep, we definitely already have googly eyes for all three gals. The Vampire Diaries returns Thursday, Oct. 8 at 8 p.m. on The CW.
