The Vampire Diaries doesn’t have a set fall premiere date, but we’re leaning towards October 8, which means until than, we have to just go about our life just wondering if Damon and Bonnie will ever return from the dead. It’s going to be one miserable and tormenting summer!
Thankfully, we have spoilers to pull us through. Gosh, aren’t spoilers just theeee best!
Will Stefan lose it?
His humanity, not his virginity people. Mind out of the gutter! Stefan’s suffered a profound loss this season. So will the ripper Stefan come out to help mend his aching heart? ”He could go light, he could go dark, he could go pure, he could lose his mind and get on a motorcycle and drive to Miami. So what he ultimately ends up doing will be an interesting reflection on his state of mind at the moment — and very fun for Paul [Wesley] to play,” executive producer Julie Plec admitted.
Caroline and Stefan
Will he find comfort in the arms of Ms. Forbes? Gosh, I hope so! That last scene in s5 when she was comforting him after he just lot Damon was powerful. Plus, Lexi let Stefan know that Caroline was hot for him. Maybe he’ll finally realize that he likes her too and that its about time he allowed himself to be happy. Paul Wesley personally thinks that these two should bypass dating altogether and skip to the sex. “They just need to have sex. Just get right to it,” he told TVLine with a laugh. “We’d have sex in the Salvatore crypt. That’s the way to go man,” he added.
Nina Dobrev explained that Elena would have no choice but to accept that her best friend is dating her ex and get over it. “It’s going to be a little awkward, but let’s be real, who is Elena to judge? She dated a brother, then dated his brother, then went back and forth. She can’t say anything. She has no right,” she added. Truer words have never been spoken!
New female character/ Tyler
That’s right! There is a new character coming to Mystic Falls and it doesn’t seem like she’s going to be the new big-bad. Plec revealed that she will be able to live in Mystic Falls, which means she isn’t any sort of witch, werewolf, vampire, hybrid, travelers, etc. She’s a normal person. Which makes her dateable by one of the three humans still able to live in Mystic Falls; Jeremy, Matt or Tyler. I guess being a hunter doesn’t technically make Jeremy a magical creature. He can still function without his strong-hunter powers. Tyler on the other hand is now newly human as he somehow lost all of his hybrid abilities…. He’s going to be dealing with controlling his anger in order not to trigger the werewolf gene. He’s going to keep his temperaments reigned in so that he doesn’t have to go through the process again. A very painful process. I wonder how he’s going to deal when he finds out Caroline is dating Stefan and she’s not by his side to help him out. According to Plec, Caroline is at a stage where she genuinely cares about Tyler and Tyler has figured out he can be friends with her but still go live his life. For those two it’ll be about friendship.
The girl? Well she’ll probably be Matt’s new love interest. He deserves it! “Weirdly enough, in spite of the grief attached to the circumstance of what happened, Matt Donovan came out the other side in the strongest way. He’s in a town with no supernatural entities, he’s out of high school, he’s grown into a young man, and he begins to find his way as he steps out on a new career path that might lead him to being someone you’d like to have protecting you in the town of Mystic Falls,” Plec said. “He’s living a pretty decent life, so it’s sad that his friends can’t be there with him, but at least it’s peaceful.” Who would have thought that the only human– the weakest one would be the luckiest and most successful one. Maybe living eternally isn’t all its cracked up to be!
Alaric will be dealing with being a vampire. He never got to experience it fully because his body was invaded by Esther and became “evil”. This is a new experience for him so he’s going to be coming to terms with what he is and how to handle it. Unfortunately, without his best friend for now. As for the gross rumors that Alaric and Elena are going to hook up in S6. NO! Elena is said to find comfort in an old friend but hopefully not in that way. I mean, all of us would really lose it and Damon would be rolling around in vampire-heaven for sure. Hopefully, Alarics return is beneficial for both Jeremy and Elena in dealing with losing their loved ones. They lost Damon and Bonnie but they gained Ric. Its sort of a win-win.
“[Alaric returning] is a really beautiful circle back to that dynamic where he’s going to be there for her as a friend and as emotional support. But also now he has to come to terms with what it’s like to live life as a secret vampire. So [Elena] has something to teach him too,” Plec said.
The burning question– what happened to Damon and Bonnie?
Did they cross over? Did they find peace? Where did they go? “I think it means there’s a mystery attached to how the show ended. Did they die? Did they find peace? Are they still on the Other Side? Does the Other Side still exist? If not, where the hell are they? And will they ever come back? Certainly, we will see Ian [Somerhalder] and Kat [Graham] again, but where and in what context? That’s part of the mystery of Season 6,” Plec teased. So, she’s not saying their gone for good. *HUGE SIGH OF RELIEF* After all, we never saw them cross over completely. The episode ended with a white light so we all ASSUMED that they died, but maybe Grams actually did concoct a plan to save Bonnie before the whole thing goes to hell. And maybe they will eventually return!
Even Ian Somerhalder didn’t seem to upset about his death. All he said on Twitter was “I am so sorry,” but he’d be much more distraught if Damon was gone for good right?
“I think the most important thing I can say about season 6 is our characters fundamentally have to come to terms with the fact that Damon and Bonnie are gone forever, and have been doing so for quite some time when we return,” she said.
She added, “Some are in denial, some are still searching for answers. ‘They’ve got to be somewhere. Where are they? We’ve got to rescue them.’ Some have given up completely. Each individual character’s reaction to the loss of these two people will be what informs the beginning of the sixth season.” Okay. So even the characters are in denial! I’m really holding out for a SERIES finale that involves Elena and Damon getting married so don’t kill it for me Plec. Don’t kill my fantasy.
What are your thoughts? Are you excited for a season free of dopplegangers? Do you think Caroline and Stefan will get together? Will Damon and Bonnie live again? What will be the big bad this year? Are they seriously going to make us wait 6 months?

‘Cruel Summer’ Renewed for a Second Season at Freeform Ahead of Finale
Cruel Summer may be airing its season finale tonight, but fans can already look forward to more spine-tingling thrills.
Freeform has picked up the psychological drama for a second season, according to TVLine.
“Renewing Cruel Summer for a Season 2 was an easy decision,” Freeform President Tara Duncan said.
“It’s the biggest series debut in Freeform’s history and the audience response has been overwhelmingly positive. [Executive producers] Jessica [Biel], Michelle [Purple] and [showrunner] Tia [Napolitano] did a phenomenal job telling an addictive story that’s tapped into the cultural zeitgeist. I’m excited to see where they take the series next,” she added.
Napolitano also noted: “Collaborating with Iron Ocean, our dedicated crew, charismatic cast, and our partners at Freeform and eOne has been the best first showrunning experience I could ask for. I am beyond grateful and excited by the amazing fan response to our show! Continuing to bottle Cruel Summer magic for a Season 2 is an absolute dream come true.”
The freshman drama stars Olivia Holt (Kate Wallis) and Chiara Aurelia (Jeanette Turner) whose worlds collide when Kate goes missing and later accuses Jeanette of knowing who kept her captive and not telling the police. Jeanette is adamant that she never saw Kate in captivity. The story is told over three timeliness in 1993, 1994, and 1995.
The mystery is set to be resolved in tonight’s finale.
Per Deadline, Biel revealed that the mystery could return with a new story and the same characters or feature a new cast of characters.

We’re entering the season of refreshing the page to see if your favorite shows have been renewed for the upcoming 2021-2022 TV season.
Since COVID-19 affected production on many shows and delayed their premieres, the criteria for what gets the green light and what ends up on the chopping block has become more stringent this go-around.
As usual, The CW gave an early renewal for most of their shows including Nancy Drew, Riverdale, Walker, Batwoman, and more.
In a shocking twist, Grey’s Anatomy has been renewed for season 18 along with sibling series Station 19.
Unfortunately, not every show shared the same fate as Prodigal Son on FOX was given the ax after two seasons.
Check out the list below to see which shows on ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX, and The CW have been renewed, canceled, or on the bubble. (TBD means that a show has not yet gotten news about its upcoming season, so check back soon!)
