Zap2It caught up with EP, Julie Plec to chat The Vampire Diaries Season 6. She sheds some light on where we will find Matt & Jeremy when the show returns, plus more info on new character, Tripp.

In light of all the new casting additions for “The Vampire Diaries” Season 6, Zap2it went straight to the “TVD” mastermind herself, executive producer Julie Plec, to get all the details on one very important new character: Tripp, played by ‘Eureka’ star Colin Ferguson. Spoiler alert: His presence means big things are coming for Matt Donovan (Zach Roerig).

So what did Plec have to say about this new character?

“Matt Donovan’s never really had a real father figure on the show and we’ve had this basic idea of really wanting a man in Mystic Falls that Matt can look up to,” Plec tells Zap2it. “Now that all the supernatural creatures are stuck outside of Mystic Falls, who are these people that are still living there? This man is running the community protection services, and he’s just trying to teach these young, 18-, 19-, 20-year old guys how they can make something of themselves. It’s nice to see Matt having somebody he can bond with and connect to as he’s kind of the last man standing in a weird way in Mystic Falls.”

KSiteTV had a chance to chat with Julie Plec at the 2014 CBS/Showtime/CW Summer TCA Party. Check out what Julie had to say about where Damon and Bonnie ended up, and how they might be coping with their situation.

KSITETV’s CRAIG BYRNE: There were several cliffhangers that the fifth season finale of The Vampire Diaries left on. Can you tease anything about the return, and what’s going to happen to Bonnie and Damon on the other side?

THE ORIGINALS & VAMPIRE DIARIES EXECUTIVE PRODUCER JULIE PLEC: Well, I think the big question of the return is two-fold: One is “what happened to Bonnie and Damon? Where are they? Are they living? Are they dead? Can they get back? Are they stuck? How are they going to entertain each other, those two who never really had much of a bond? And how long are they going to be gone?” So part of what we’re doing in the beginning is playing that mystery and answering those questions one piece at a time, peeling back the layers of all those answers over the first run of episodes.

Parade Magazine caught up with Nina Dobrev. Check out what Nina has to say about the upcoming season of The Vampire Diaries.

The cliffhanger this past season was killer—literally! Is there hope for fans of Damon and Bonnie?
“I think they knew I would be doing all of these interviews today, so they didn’t give me the script—I get it tomorrow—so I have no idea what’s happening. Except for the fact that I will be returning, that’s for sure.”

The Other Side is gone, what kind of repercussions will that have?
“Well, for one, when someone dies they’re dead for good, they can’t come back. They’re dead, they’re gone since there’s no place for them to come back from. So that’s going to be one of the main repercussions of the other side disappearing.”

What do you want to see happen for Elena in the upcoming season?
“I don’t know. I’d like to see how she copes and deals with things post-Damon and see how she’s going to be able to move on and if she’ll have a normal life. Everything in Elena’s life is complicated, it’s never easy, everyone’s dying around her.”

TV Guide caught up with Julie Plec recently for some scoop on TVD Season6. TV Line also has more scoop from Julie as well!

Via TV Guide

How long will it be before we find out where Damon and Bonnie have been and presumably when they’ll be back?

Julie Plec: The answer of what happened is part of the season-long mythology, but the mystery of where they are is going to be asked very quickly and answered soon enough to not be frustrating.

Can Elena really move on?

Plec: What happened to her is that in spite of losing her parents and her brother, her aunt, her friends again and again, she lost the person she singularly believed to be the man she was going to spend all of eternity with. I think there’s a special form of grief that comes attached to that, which will be difficult to get past, but also the choices she makes at how to move on will be very interesting to watch.

Via TV Line:

What coping mechanisms will Elena from The Vampire Diaries be using to deal with the fact she lost Damon (seemingly) forever? –Ana

It sounds like she’ll be burying her nose in the books, of the medical stripe. As indicated by a flurry of recent castings – and likely a pure coincidence now that TVDhas Grey’s Anatomy as a time slot rival — “When we come back, we’ll see that Elena is actively pursuing a degree in pre-med,” show boss Julie Plec told us. “She’s a smart girl, and Elena’s father was a doctor, so she’s trying to figure out how to help people and save people, just as her family did.” And merely as an added bonus, “We’ll meet some hot young pre-med guys and sexy doctors” as she does so.

Paul Wesley was on HuffPostLive earlier today talking Immigrant Hertiage Month, his new PSA he directed, and TVD Season 6! Check out the video below!

The Wrap caught up with Steven McQueen to talk about tonight’s Steven McQueen Documentary (airing on Spike TV at 9/8c), The Vampire Diaries Season Finale and gearing up for season 6 (the cast starts filming season 6 July 7th) and talks about his desire to play superhero, Nightwing.

Access Hollywood Live chatted recently with Kat Graham, she confirms she’ll be back for season 6 (of course we weren’t worried…) and more!

Alloy Entertainment recently touched base with Caroline Dries for an exclusive interview, where she teases what’s to come in The Vampire Diaries Season 6. Alarenzo bar brawl anyone??

Alloy Entertainment: The anti-magic boundary spell is still intact so, ironically, the vampires of Mystic Falls have sort of become Travelers in the sense that they have no home to return to. That said, where will Season 6 find everyone — a united front trying to reclaim their territory or dispersed on personal journeys?

Caroline Dries: The anti-magic boundary will continue to play a role moving forward as we begin to explore this notion of what it means to go home again. As the story unfolds we’ll see the effects exile has had on everyone and see that everyone is handling it (and the loss of their loved ones) differently and personal journeys will form. Some will be fighting for a way to save their home, others have given up or moved on or found peace with it… We wanted the fallout to be personal for everyone.

Alloy Entertainment: Stefan lost his best friend and brother, and Elena and Jeremy each lost their significant others. How will they each specifically cope with their grief?

Caroline Dries: I can’t go in too much detail without giving things away but the events of the finale were beyond devastating and ripple effects will be felt and change the dynamic of the show.

Alloy Entertainment: Alaric is back in action and so is Enzo. What can you say about their upcoming dynamic? Do you have any Alarenzo scenarios on your wish-list? (Example:
Alaric is teaching history at Whitmore College when Enzo, ever the wise guy, pops up to correct him in the middle of his lecture.)

Caroline Dries: We are very excited in Alaric’s return and plan to incorporate him in Elena’s life hoping to give a type of parental touchstone to her (something she lost when she lost him). Enzo, as we left him, is still a bit of a loose canon wild thing and I can’t wait until the two butt
heads– and I’m sure they will. Let’s see, wish list — feels like there could be a bar brawl in their future. Or maybe they’ll just karaoke compete against each other.
