‘The Vampire Diaries’ Adds Michael Malarkey as Season 6 Series Regular


‘The Vampire Diaries’ Adds Michael Malarkey as Season 6 Series Regular


Enzo fans, rejoice! Not only is Enzo back from the dead, but he’ll also be returning to ‘The Vampire Diaries’ as a series regular for Season 6.

Showrunner Julie Plec recently revealed the beloved bad boy is back for the sixth season. As she told TVLine, Enzo will be back in his typical villainous fashion. “Oh, Enzo’s not making any friends. The beauty of Enzo is that we find him delightful, but he doesn’t need any friends. He definitely is a thorn in a couple people’s side, and will continue to be so in that delicious, devilish way that he has.”

In addition to Malarkey, Matt Davis aka Alaric will also be back as a full-time series regular next season, which was announced last night after the Season 5 finale. Plec also revealed Alaric will still be a vampire “...who is struggling in a weird way,” as “We never got to see him respond to being one, because he was quote-unquote evil at the hands of Esther back in Season 3. So this is a much more human experience for him. He’ll struggle with what he’s become and how he’s supposed to live with that.”

So, now all we have to do is hope Damon will return so Alaric and Enzo can fight over who’s the better buddy to Damon. I’m sensing quite the bromance triangle. Plec even told that she anticipates Alaric and Enzo “not liking each other very much.”

But if these two handsome vamps stick around, Plec can see them with their very own show. “I sorta feel like in Season 9, if it’s Enzo and Alaric, we just spin them off into their own show. I think life would be pretty good.”

I have to say I very much agree with Plec.

‘The Vampire Diaries’ returns next fall on The CW.

Because the show is brilliant. If you like vampire lore this may be the best one ever. And that's coming from a man who thought the same as you. I thought it was a dumb teenage girl show but I was wrong. Yes it has romance but its so much more. I gave it a chance and haven't looked back.

Other than it's obvious appeal to teenage girls what is it about this show that gets it's bordering on spam coverage on TVRage? There are so many brilliant shows out there that barely get a mention yet this one is plastered all over the site at every opportunity.
