In the show, Davis plays Jeff, a blogger with a brother who goes missing on the set of a TV series, also called Cult. With the help of a production assistant (Jessica Lucas), Jeff investigates the show’s overly enthusiastic fans, who may be reenacting the fictional crimes in real life.
“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,” Vampire Diaries executive producer Julie Plec said in an interview with E! back in April.
“The CW has been gracious enough to allow me the opportunity to play two amazing characters simultaneously on their network...” Davis tweeted in March when word leaked of his new gig. Now that the show is officially a go for fall, we’re guessing any cameos Davis makes in TVD will be few and far between…
Congrats on the new gig, Davis! Hope you find your serial killer!
