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.

Thanks to Julie Plec, we have some major questions answered from last night’s season finale and what’s to come in Season 6. Julie talks to both TV Line, EW and more. And thanks to Kat Graham for sharing this awesome BTS photo above from she and Ian Somerhalder filming the last scene!

Via EW:

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: It seemed as if Damon and Bonnie found peace as The Other Side was destroyed. Let’s start with the big question on fans’ minds: Is Ian Somerhalder a series regular in season 6?

JULIE PLEC: I think the ending of the episode is meant to be left up deliberately for speculation of what exactly did happen to them. I can say for certain The Other Side is gone for good, and I can say for certain that when The Other Side disappeared for good that they had already been dealt with — whether it’s through finding peace or other means. Outside of that [laughs], I think I’ll let the speculation blow around a little while longer.

But can you say whether we’ll see Ian and Kat again?

We will definitely see Ian Somerhalder and Kat Graham on the show. I mean, there’s a million different ways that you can do that. But as far as in what context — how, why, and where? — that’s part of the mystery.

Via TV Line:

TVLINE | Now, for some questions about the people who came back: Is Tyler fully human, or just back to being a werewolf?

He’s back to being a human with the werewolf gene, which means he’s going to have to relive that whole experience all over again, this time knowing about it much earlier. He won’t be that messed-up kid with all the aggression he can’t understand; now he knows where it’s coming from. But he’s still going to have to work hard to keep his temperaments reigned in, and to find an outlet for that physical frustration that comes along with having the werewolf gene. If he hurts someone again, he’ll have to go through that whole journey. And as we saw, it was not fun for him.

Via THR:

“The way we look at it, season six is a beautiful and organic reset. The theme of the season is everybody gets to start over. That’s what we’re going to do,” executive producer Julie Plec tells The Hollywood Reporter.
The new season will be a departure from the “massive genre extravaganza” Vampire Diaries has become, instead putting the focus back on character and their often complicated internal and psychological conflicts.
“We’re trying to take the show away from the massive genre extravaganza where each season we try to top each other with the bigger bad, more exciting mythologies and boil it back down to the beginning, which is tension, suspense, romance, psychological horror, simple horror, vampires living in secret, people discovering their secret and coming after them,” Plec promises.

Via TV Guide:

What did Grams (Jasmine Guy) mean when she told Bonnie she made sure she’d have peace?

Plec: It’s the biggest clue one can take in the finale as far as the mystery of what’s going to happen next year. That was not an arbitrary comment and Grams clearly did something and the question is what.

Paul Wesley and Nina Dobrev hit up the 2014 CW Upfronts green carpet to talk tonight’s season finale with TV Line and Buzzfeed. Check out what the two had to say.

Via TV Line:

First thing’s first: How is Elena going to react to the news of Stefan’s (likely temporary) demise?

“She’s going to be upset, I’m not going to lie,” Dobrev told us. “She’s not going to be doing jumping jacks and high-fiving everyone. But you know Elena; she doesn’t take no for an answer, and she doesn’t let death get in the way of anything. … What is death? Whatever.”

But just because Elena is going to do whatever she can to save Stefan, that doesn’t mean everyone will make it out of the finale unscathed.

“You will see a couple familiar faces pop up tonight, and you’ll also see a few familiar faces disappear,” Dobrev teased. “We’re going to reset everything and make it so that once you die, you’re dead.”

Via Buzzfeed:

Wesley’s immortal character — vampire Stefan Salvatore — recently had his heart ripped out (one of the only ways for a vampire to truly die on the show), but when asked if he feared the reaper had finally come for Stefan, Wesley replied, “I’m kind of numb to these things, to be honest with you. I’ve had so many things happen to me that it’s a little comical. So, yeah, no big deal.”

That’s why he’s hoping the writers start to inject a sense of permanence to the show’s revolving cycle of life, death, and rebirth. “I want them to start killing people,” Wesley told BuzzFeed on the red carpet before The CW’s upfront presentation in New York City on Thursday, the day of the show’s Season 5 finale. “It kind of drives me insane that they don’t. You can’t keep killing characters and bringing them back while using death as a catalyst for us caring about the episode. Death has to the be ultimate fear on our show, so when Stefan is trying to rescue Elena, we’re genuinely terrified she might die. Otherwise, what’s the point?”
