The Vampire Diaries to Spin Off Damon and Alaric

by 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.

Our Favorite Bromance

"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!

hahahahahaha omfg! That is hilarious! You certainly got me (and everyone else)! Great prank! I have to admit, though, that the show would probably be pretty darn funny. I mean, picture a cross between Angel, True Blood, and TVD. That's some good s*** right there.
