The Vampire Diaries to Spin Off Damon and Alaric

at . Comments

Get ready to spend a lot more time with Ric and The Dick this fall, Vampire Diaries fans.

In a stunning announcement, executive producer Julie Plec said this morning that Alaric Saltzman and Damon Salvatore will be featured in their very own spinoff for the 2012-2013 season, with The CW already green-lighting this concept into series, bypassing the pilot stage.

"The chemistry between these two cannot be denied," Plec said. "We feel like there's nothing left for either character to do in Mystic Falls, and the idea of Alaric and Damon opening up a supernatural detective agency somewhere in the Bayou was too enticing to pass up."

But what about Matt Davis landing a starring role on Cult? A smoke screen, Plec laughed, a way to "throw fans off the trail before this deal was finalized."

And what about Damon and Elena? Is there any chance she skips town with the man for whom she admitted last week she probably has feelings? Plec would not say.

Wow. Talk about a shocker, TVDers! What do you think of this spinoff idea? Before you sound off, we'd just like to say...

... Yeah, right! HAPPY APRIL FOOL'S DAY!

Vampire Diaries Quotes

You want a love that consumes you. You want passion and adventure, and even a little danger... I want you to get everything you're looking for. But for right now, I want you to forget that this happened. Can't have people knowing I'm in town yet. Goodnight, Elena.

Damon

Dear Elena, yes you heard that correctly. Hell has frozen over. I'm writing it all down. Granted, I'm half a bottle in thanks to my 1950 Chateau Cheval Blanc, a bottle I waited 65 years to open. I used to spend nights sitting in my wine cellar convincing myself I could hear it age, tannins growing, fermenting, but appreciating its beauty didn't make time go by any faster. The bottle just laid there on its shelf, torturing me while I waited for Katherine and time stood still. Eventually I convinced myself that no sip of that wine could ever taste as good as I dreamt it would. And that is the story of why I drink bourbon. I don't know who I am without you, but I know that as long as I'm with you, time will stand still. So who is Damon Salvatore without Elena Gilbert? A selfish friend, a jealous brother, a horrible son? Or maybe with a little luck, I'll do right by you. Because you may be a thousand miles away or a hundred years away, but you're still here with me and my heart is right there in that coffin with you. Until you come back to me.

Damon
