For those of you wondering when The Vampire Diaries Season 4 is going to be back in production, we now have some sort of answer for you courtesy of : soon.
After figuring out a way to ring in 2013 in a very unique way in Southeast Asia, the actor better known as Damon Salvatore is now back in America following his foreign galavants, and he will now be ready to dive into his work again. At the moment, there's no word yet on whether or not his on and off-screen girlfriend joined him in his arrival back on US soil, but we would assume so given that she also has to get back to work on the Atlanta set.
Somerhalder confirmed his US presence via his Twitter page, where he said the following:
Back in the Saddle and ready to work- #tvd time.Up, 6AM-training, breakfast, study lines,bite someone..— ian somerhalder (@iansomerhalder) January 7, 2013
Shooting on the remaining episodes continues until April, and then the cast has several months off until they return to Atlanta in mid-July in order to get some work started on the following season.
I can't wait to see what's in store. What will have happened since the escapades at the Lake House? What's up with Professor Shane? And what's going on with that Damon-Elena bond? Let us know what you expect from the remainder of Season 4 below, and drop a shout out to Ian if you're glad to hear he's back on home soil.
