With the 2017-18 Fall season approaching quickly, many favorite shows are returning for a brand new season and new series are set to make an anticipated debut. But for the first time in eight years, TVD fans are left with a feeling of emptiness that our beloved series filled since 2009. While there may not be any new cast promotional posters, character portraits, season trailer or even behind the scenes sneak peeks, we, the TVD fandom is still very much alive and supports the cast of our beloved supernatural series. So if you’re wondering or just need a little something to fill the void, here’s how life looks for the cast after Mystic Falls.

Fingers Crossed We’ll See Matt Davis in The Originals!
Matt Davis portrayed everyone’s favorite history teacher and vampire hunter, Alaric, who unwillingly became a vampire that came back from the Other Side only to be turned back into a human again, occult studies professor, father, Armory director and co-founder of the Salvatore Boarding House for Children. We can only hope he will reprise the role of Alaric for an appearance or two in season five of The Originals. Afterall, Klaus’ daughter does attend the Salvatore school, which he co-owns and runs. Fingers crossed. Matt also appears at fan conventions alongside many of the other cast members of TVD and The Originals.
