of the ‘toxic’ romance between Damon and Elena.

However, during an interview with Entertainment Weekly, show producer Julie Plec confirmed the return of Damon.

"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," Plec told EW.

A Wetpaint report suspects that Damon may return as a human as Plec has teased about an organic setting for the return of CW’s popular vampire series.

"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," Plec explains to Hollywood Reporter.

Damon and Bonnie were trapped on the Other Side in order to save Mystic Falls from the Traveller’s curse.

But they couldn’t come back as the Other Side was on the brink of collapse.

However, Plec hints that Damon’s life sacrificing efforts could not save the Mystic Falls from the spell of the Travellers and in the upcoming season the vampires will try to reclaim their home.

"Our heroes who have splintered off need to find their way back to each other emotionally and geographically as they fight to restore order to their home so they can actually return and not be scattered for good,"
