Warning: spoilers for The Vampire Diaries Season 5 finale to follow.

The shock waves being felt around the planet following the distressing death of Damon (Ian Somerhalder) during the season finale of [The Vampire Diaries](series:200853) continue to shake the foundations of everything we hold dear.

Surely the show can't continue without the blue-eyed heartthrob at it's emotional core.

Well it turns out it can't: because Damon will be back in Season 6.

Here's showrunner Julie Plec on the return of Damon and Bonnie:

I think it means there’s a mystery attached to how the show ended. Did they die? Did they find peace? Are they still on the Other Side? Does the Other Side still exist? If not, where the hell are they? And will they ever come back? Certainly, we will see Ian [Somerhalder] and Kat [Graham] again, but where and in what context? That’s part of the mystery of Season 6.

There was a massive outcry when Damon died, so the timing of Plec's announcement that the character would be returning in Season 6 seems like a canny move to placate angry fans who might not have come back to the show if Damon had not returned.

Or maybe I'm just being too cynical.

Would you watch The Vampire Diaries Season 6 without Damon?
