This may not be Twilight, but it's still pretty hot!

Ian Somerhalder posted a snippet from the new Vampire Diaries teaser on Instagram this week, and in it we see the 36-year-old actor totally in the buff! “Why is Damon naked in this new Vampire Diaries Trailer…?” Somerhalder captioned the post.

But Somerhalder's clothes aren't the only thing missing from the show this season. Nina Dobrev, who has played Elena Gilbert on the show since it premiered in 2009, is also noticeably absent. Elena hasn't been killed off, but rather, she's asleep in a coffin for the next few decades.

Maybe by then she'll have forgiven Ian for shacking up with her former BFF, Nikki Reed?
