Love will be in the air this fall for Alaric Saltzman.

As previously reported, the returning teacher (and vampire) will be serving a college professor when we meet back up with him on The Vampire Diaries Season 6, helping to comfort Elena in her time of grief and also cozying up to Elena's new pre-med mentor.

Her name will be Jo, she'll be played by Jodi Lyn O’Keefe and Entertainment Weekly has given us our first look at the actress in character:

The Vampire Diaries Season 6 Episode 1 Quotes

I wanna say thank you for giving me everything I always wanted. A love to consume me, and passion, and adventure. There's nothing more I could ever want than for it to last forever, but it can't. This is the last time I'm gonna see you. This is goodbye, Damon.

Elena [to Damon]

We're all getting through it...in our own way.

Elena
