Chris Wood to Play "Psychotic" Villain on The Vampire Diaries Season 6

at .

Chris Wood has been cast on The Vampire Diaries Season 6.

In a teaser-heavy interview with HitFix this week, Caroline Dries dropped a number of intriguing Vampire Diaries spoilers, foremost among them that a new Big Bad is on his way to Mystic Falls.

What can we expect from the unnamed villain? 

Chris Wood as Weaver

"He is just like a crazy person and he's super-fun to write and the actor's name is Chris Wood," Dries said. "He's very charismatic and charming and psychotic and likable and unlikable in all the right ways."

The producer added that we'll meet this character at some point in the "first few episodes" and that "he's gonna stick around for a while, hopefully."

Interesting. All we know at the moment about upcoming installments is that Stefan will off on his own; Elena will be doing drugs and studying medicine; Alaric will be a college professor; and Bonnie and Damon will be .... somewhere.

Wood, meanwhile, recently recurred on The Carrie Diaries as the character of Adam Weaver.

The Vampire Diaries Season 6 Episode 1 will be titled "I'll Remember" and air on Thursday, October 2 at 8/7c. We cannot wait.
