Does Alaric Have a Future on The Vampire Diaries? Executive Producer Julie Plec Explains
It’s hard to be a human in Mystic Falls — especially when your magic man-jewelry turns you into a crazy person. No one knows this better than history-loving hottie Alaric (Matt Davis). Is this derangement a way of killing off the fan favorite (Matt Davis has a new CW pilot in the works), or are bigger (if not better) things in store for the psycho killer?
In a recent interview with E!, Vampire Diaries executive producer Julie Plec explained, “My hope is that Matt Davis gets everything he wants in the form of this new show, but also that we get everything we want and he wants, which is an eternity of Alaric in our world." That sounds great — we prefer forever Alaric to Folsom Prison Alaric, but is it logistically feasible?
Just because Davis is filming the pilot, there’s no guarantee that it will be picked up. We’re hoping TVD will keep Alaric alive in case the new show falls through — and that he’ll still make cameos if it does.
