If anything is going to make you shout 'HUG ME BROTHAA', it's probably the news that a certain Drake and Josh cast member is set to join The Vampire Diaries for season 8.
While sadly it's neither Drake Bell or Josh Peck, it is the former's nemesis turned love interest, the one and only Mindy Crenshaw, who will be unleashing her inner vamp.
Mindy - real name Allison Scagliotti - has been named as a new addition to the cast and will play a research intern called Georgie.
Naturally she'll have a slightly wild backstory and haunted by demons of her past, she apparently 'channels existential anxieties into a new field of study that will force her to confront her deepest fears', whatever the hell that means.
With the season 8 premiere scheduled for October 21st, there's a bit of time before you get to see her debut, but she seems pret-ty darn excited about joining TVD.
"The black cat's out of the bag, I guess," Allison said, posting on Twitter.
"Gosh, thanks for the love everybody. I promise not to steer your ships off course. (I don't actually know, I've only seen one script)," she added.
HOW VERY EXCITING.
