Matt toldZap2it that he thinks “there are plans to come back,” but he’s just not sure how. It will be “weird” for him, he said, to appear on both shows but he admitted, “it’s interesting to sort of parallel… to cross over and cross back will be an experience.”
Odd or not, Matt’s “thrilled” about getting to return to The Vampire Diaries in some creative capacity.
As for what the producers and writers could do to have staked vampire Alaric make an appearance, well, nothing’s official yet. But we do knowJeremy (Steven R. McQueen) can have some ghosty interactions with him, and those poor Gilbert kids are really going to need some sort of mentoring now thatElena (Nina Dobrev) is going to be a very thirsty young lady. Not to mention, there’s a scary new vampire hunterjoining the fold.
