While Season 5 of The Vampire Diaries might look pretty bleak for our favorite Mystic Grill busboy Matt Donovan (Zach Roerig) — you know, with summer lover Rebekah headed to New Orleans and their relationship at “an end.” But don’t worry about Matt, things are about to get really juicy for him!

According to TVLine, “[Matt is] not a peripheral character this season,” executive producer Caroline Dries teased. “He really has an interesting, intriguing storyline this year. We are introduced to it briefly in the season premiere.”

We can’t wait to see what’s going to happen to one of the last human characters on the show. With Caroline (Candice Accola) and Elena (Nina Dobrev) heading off to college, the Mikaelsons heading to New Orleans, Bonnie’s (Kat Graham) walk on the “other side,” and the whole Stefan/Silas (Paul Wesley) drama going on, we hope there’s enough time for a human-focused storyline.

What do you think about the prospect of Matt becoming more of a main character? Hit the comments and let us know what you hope to see him do this season!
