    Ian Somerhalder ‘Predicts’ The Vampire Diaries Could End Soon

    Ian Somerhalder gave The Vampire Diaries fans a fright at the end of the fifth season when his character Damon failed to make it back from The Other Side with Bonnie. And now, the actor has installed fear in fans again by revealing that The Vampire Diaries could end soon.

    With filming for the sixth season of the hit CW network show well underway, everything appeared hunky dory until Digital Spy reported Ian admitting that the sixth season could be the last. Ian, who has played the role of Damon since 2009, was quoted as saying: “It very well could be our last [season] I think now that there’s a finality to it, everyone’s really realising that this is a very important time in our lives. We created some very cool storytelling.”

    A rep for Ian and a rep for The Vampire Diaries has been approached for comment.

    However, we hope that Ian is just pulling our leg as executive producer Julie Plec appeared to suggest that there are no plans for The Vampire Diaries to come to an end any time soon. Speaking about the future of the show in relation to the speculation that either Ian, Nina Dobrev or Paul Wesley have yet to sign up for season seven, Plec told E! News:

    “I think the show will go as long as the actors want the show to go. You know, look, everybody’s under contract. I know that we’ve got plans for season six, we’ve got plans for season seven. I know that our bosses have plans for seasons eight, nine, and 10. I said I want to be part of it as long as I know I could keep telling good stories and as long as the ensemble people that I work with want to be there and are committed and dedicated.”

    Showing no signs of any problems with the cast, Plec continued to comment: “So, so far so good, you know. We’ll see how long we can stay, doing it well. We’ll make sure that we don’t start sucking.”

    It is interesting to note that the season five finale drew in 1.61 million viewers earlier this year, which was slightly down on the 2.24 million viewers who watched scenes unfold in the fourth season finale that aired in 2013.

    Ian Somerhalder Is Nominated For an Emmy — Well, Basically!

    Sadly, The Vampire Diaries received zero nods in the recent Emmys nominations. However, another project close to Ian Somerhalder’s heart did pick up a few nominations — and the actor is beyond excited about it. Check out his reaction tweets to the big news!

    Years Living Dangerously, the Showtime climate change docu-series featuring “celebrity investigators” — including Ian — who travel the world to talk to the people who have been affected by climate change, has been nominated for two Emmys: Outstanding Documentary or Non-Fiction Series and Outstanding Writing for Nonfiction Programming. Pretty neat!

    Ian took to Twitter and Instagram to share his excitement over the news, first sharing this photo of his ecstatic reaction, captioned: “WE DID! YES!!! #yearsproject AKA YEARS OF LIVING DANGEROUSLY on Showtime was nominated for 2 EMMYS! YES! These stories needed to be told! More to come! I’m so GRATEFUL and PROUD to be part of this series-WOW. Thank you @thejram for snapping this moment of joy-what an amazing experience you, me and Kim Klingler had shooting this amazing show. Wow.” Then, sharing a screenshot of the specific awards for which Years Living Dangerously has been nominated…


    ‘The Anomaly is Memento meets The Bourne Identity’

    Hard though this is to believe, it’s been more than four years since Noel Clarke last directed a movie. He had a triple whammy of writer-producer credits in 2012 with Fast Girls, Storage 24 and The Knot. Now he’s back behind the camera, parlaying his Storage 24 and Star Trek Into Darkness experience into a low-budget but high-concept science fiction thriller.

    Clarke plays the lead role of Ryan, a former soldier who finds himself captive in the back of a van and only able to stay conscious in bursts of precisely 9 minutes and 47 seconds.

    Digital Spy sat down with Ian Somerhalder on the film’s London set last summer to discuss the joys of shooting sci-fi on a shoestring, the film’s Memento-like premise, and his work with the Ian Somerhalder Foundation.

    ‘The Vampire Diaries’ Season 6 Spoilers: Damon to Return as Human?

    The sixth season of “The Vampire Diaries” will not premiere until October, but speculations are already rife on what the future will entail for Damon, with a majority believing that the elder Salvatore brother will return as a human….

    While there is no official confirmation of whether Damon will appear in the human form, fans are looking forward to the change as it would allow them to see Damon in a vulnerable state. Unlike his brother, Stefan, Damon has never wanted to be a human, and according to a Bustle article, it would be interesting to see Damon vulnerable when it comes to confessing his feeling for Elena.

    Check out some of the tweets below.

    HE’S GONNA BE HUMAN AND HAVE AMNESIA. YUP. “Damon comes back in season six in a different way, we’re all very excited about it” – Ian #TVD

    Showrunner Julie Plec, in an earlier interview with TVLine, hinted that Bonnie and Damon will definitely be a part of season six, but stopped short of revealing in what context.

    “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,” she said.

    Meanwhile, a leaked poster of “The Vampire Diaries” season six shows Elena, Stefan, and Damon and the caption states that “Season six will be the story of their battle between good and evil within themselves, and their journey back to each other to reclaim their home.”

    The Season five finale of “The Vampire Diaries” had Damon and Bonnie trapped on the Other Side while it was disintegrating. The final scene had Bonnie asking Damon if it will hurt, but before he could finish his reply, the screen goes blank.

    “[The season five finale] definitely establishes new parameters in the environment we’ll be shooting in season six, they reset things in a way, and the writers have the ability to now change the circumstances and locations of where the show takes place,” Paul Wesley told TVGuide on what to expect in season six.
