The Vampire Diaries will return to TV screens for its eighth and final run this year. And luckily for us, a familiar face (and one of our personal faves) will be making a comeback.
Michael Trevino will officially be returning to the show this fall, picking up where his character Tyler Lockwood left off. Throughout his six-season run on the show, Trevino’s character has transformed in a variety of ways — from a hybrid to a human and even a werewolf. His character appeared briefly in Season 7, but will once again be a regular in Season 8.
EW reports that the Mexican actor will first appear in episode three. “Tyler will once again come face-to-face with Damon, except this time, Damon’s mental state is even worse as he continues to spiral out of control after his experience in the vault. Tyler will attempt to talk some sense into Damon by reminding him what and who is important, but if history is any indication, Damon’s not always eager to listen to Tyler…” the site exclusively dished.
Catch Trevino on the new season of The Vampire Diaries on Friday, October 21st at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
