Naturally, fans of the show lost their marbles over it. But guess what! The other brother has also returned.
Stefan Salvatore is back for Legacies, but as himself, Paul Wesley. He's directed an episode.
"One of the things that I welcomed the most with Legacies was the humor. For years on Vampire Diaries we all wanted to flex our satirical muscles a little bit," he said. "I think it’s nice to be able to make fun of not yourself but I suppose of the genre and make it a little more of a wink to the audience."
He also shared his favourite scene he got to shoot throughout his entire career, which of course led him to talk about TVD.
"I think the ending of Legacies is very powerful. I really like the way it ends. As far as in general as a director, I’m not so sure. There’s a handful of scenes that I’m really proud of," he said. "There’s a few on the Vampire Diaries that I thought were probably some of my favorites. But I can’t quite recall at this point. It’s all blended in into one giant supernatural CW mix-up in my mind."
