Well, that happened. If you saw the season finale of The Vampire Diaries you might be wondering if a certain someone will be back for good. We have some excellent news for you.
As reported by TV Guide, our hopes and dreams for the past two years are finally coming true: Matt Davis is returning as a series regular for season 6 of The Vampire Diaries!
Davis left the series in season 3 when Esther turned him into a crazy Original creature. Unfortunately for Alaric and Esther, she linked him to Elena so when Elena died so did Alaric.
Ever since that critical moment Alaric has appeared as a ghost in multiple episodes through-out the past two seasons, but unable to be a series regular because of Davis’ work on Cult.
Now that Cult has been canceled, it’s opened up Davis’ schedule to come back to the series as a season regular.
Almost exactly a year ago today we explained 5 reasons why The Vampire Diaries needed to bring Alaric Saltzman back to life, and keep him there. Now, we’ve gotten our wish!
Are you excited to see Alaric back?
