The season finale of "The Vampire Diaries" just aired recently, but fans are excited to find out information about season 6. A lot of details have been revealed through interviews and a revealing marketing poster. On May 22, WetPaint reported which characters will be returning.
Besides the main cast, the alive ones that is, Damon and Bonnie, played by Ian Somerhalder and Kat Graham, will be coming back. Fans were excited to hear this news because it appeared as if they were wiped out of existence when the Other Side finally dissolved.
Spoiler TV posted a marketing poster for "The Vampire Diaries" season 6 the night the season finale aired. It showed Stefan and Elena as well as Damon, which started the speculations that Damon at least would be back. As for how Damon and Bonnie will return, executive producer Julie Plec told Entertainment Weekly that there are a million ways it could happen. She added that part of the mystery is how they return, where and why.
Matt Davis will not only be coming back as Alaric Saltzman, but he will be a series regular. It has been said that he will be there for Elena and Jeremy, just like he was in the past. Elena will help him deal with being a vampire, which the character thinks is "weird." Also, spoiler reports stated that Alaric being an Original vampire will be further explored.
Michael Malarkey, who plays Enzo, will also be back in season 6 of "The Vampire Diaries." He will be a series regular and it has been teased that he will wreck havoc. Plec said in an interview that Enzo and Alaric will not like each other very much.
There are some characters whose return next season is still unknown. Sheriff Forbes, played by Marguerite MacIntyre, is one of them. Also, it has not been said if Penelope Mitchell and Chris Brochu would return as Liv and Luke.
One character that will not be coming back in season 6 is Lexi (Arielle Kebbel.) Plec said that she will not be coming back to the world that the other characters live in. However, she did say that fans might see her in flashbacks since she has been a major part of Stefan's life for centuries.
