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:
