We’re so happy to have The Vampire Diaries back on our weekly TV schedules, and it looks like you are too. The ratings for Season 5, Episode 12 (“The Devil Inside”) are in, and over 2.4 million of you can’t get enough of all the Mystic Falls drama.

The episode was down slightly from last week, but with a spectacle like “500 Years of Solitude” — which was also the series’ milestone 100th episode — the slight dip was to be expected. Season 5, Episode 12 scored a 1.1 in the coveted 18-49 demo.

Things are looking good for a Season 6 renewal, TVD fans. Considering The Vampire Diaries is The CW’s most-watched series, Season 6 is pretty much a go. We’re just hoping all of our favorites stay alive long enough to make to a sixth season! With the way things are going in Mystic Falls right now, we’re not so sure.  

Catch the next episode of The Vampire Diaries on Thursday, February 6 at 8 p.m. ET on the CW.
