We have many months to wait until The Vampire Diaries Season 6 premiere on The CW.
But as fans try to think of ways to spend their Thursday nights until the return of this drama in October, Executive Producer Caroline Dries is at least here to offer up a few teases and tidbits.
Where will each character find him or herself this fall? How will Alaric get along with Enzo? And can you imagine a dark Caroline Forbes?!?
Follow this link to read the full interview with Dries and scroll down for a few spoiler-iffic excepts...
Can you go home again? The anti-magic boundary will continue to play a role moving forward as we begin to explore this notion of what it means to go home again… we’ll see the effects exile has had on everyone and see that everyone is handling it differently and personal journeys will form. Some will be fighting for a way to save their home, others have given up or moved on or found peace with it.
A new rivalry? We are very excited about Alaric’s return and plan to incorporate him in Elena’s life, hoping to give a type of parental touchstone to her... Enzo, as we left him, is still a bit of a loose canon wild thing and I can’t wait until the two butt heads.
A different Caroline? The feelings behind [her] feelings [for Stefan] are something we get to explore in season 6 as we watch how her relationship with Stefan plays out. Any time we turn a character dark it’s fun because it’s a change of pace for the writers, actors and viewers.
Dries also teased a “very fresh place” for both Matt and Tyler, while confirming that, yes, we’ll be seeing Bonnie and Damon again on Season 6.
So you can breathe easy now, TVD Fanatics.
What are you most excited about for next year? Do you want to see Caroline and Stefan hook up? Don't you wish Bonnie could have brought Lexi back?!?
