Michael Malarkey Upped to Vampire Diaries Series Regular

at . Comments

While we await word on the only piece of Vampire Diaries casting news fans really care about right now - is Ian Somerhalder coming back or not?!? - Julie Plec has confirmed that Enzo isn't going anywhere any time soon.

Actor Michael Malarkey will be a series regular on The Vampire Diaries Season 6.

Evil Enzo

He’s a wonderful addition to the team,” Plec tells EW, adding that Enzo will interact often with a returning Alarc and they won’t be “liking each other very much."

Indeed, Matt Davis has also been upped to series regular status again, following last night's season finale in which Alaric and Enzo both escaped from The Other Side prior to it falling apart.

Malarkey, meanwhile, debuted earlier this year as Damon's former cell neighbor and long-time friend, a troubled vampire who was experimented on for many years by The Augustine Society.

The star and the snarky character both quickly became major fan favorites.
