We were big fans of witch twins Liv (Penelope Mitchell) and Luke (Chris Brochu) in Season 5 of The Vampire Diaries — even if they did try to kill Stefan (Paul Wesley) and Elena (Nina Dobrev) that one time. Needless to say, we’ve been on pins and needles waiting to find out if the wonder twins would be back for Season 6, and now we might have our answer!


Nina just shared an adorable photo of both Paul and Penelope celebrating their birthdays together. “Happy birthday to #SexyWesley (@paulwesley/@paulvedere ) and #PrettyPenelope (@pfhmitchell)!!!!!!!” Nina captioned the pic of Paul and Penelope enjoying some birthday dessert and wine. To us, this implies that Penelope is back in Season 6 as Liv! No news on brother Luke, but it’s hard to imagine one back without the other. These two are one another’s only family, and they will literally (well, technically with the aid of a spell) tear down the veil between worlds to save the each other from death.

We’re excited to see how Liv and Luke might play into the Season 6 storyline. We’ve heard a lot about what will be going down in Mystic Falls through the casting of some new characters, but, given that neither Elena nor Stefan can return to the Virginian hamlet, we’ve been curious what might be going down at Whitmore College — aka, this show’s other setting.

Is it too much to hope that Luke and Liv might actually be friends with Stefan and Elena? Sure, the twins tried to kill Stelena, but Caroline actually did kill Luke, so maybe they can call it even? With Bonnie and Damon seemingly gone, the fang gang has some openings to fill in their social group.

Are you excited to hear that Luke and Liv will most likely be back for Season 6? Sound off in the comments below!
