‘The Vampire Diaries’ Season 6 Synopsis [Spoilers]

We’re still not over the season 5 finale of The Vampire Diaries, so our attitude toward this summer hiatus has officially passed sucking into full-blown “hurry it up” mode. While we wait out the final 30+ days, we have something to help tide us over (or perhaps make the wait even worse).

The CW has released an official synopsis for the season 6 of The Vampire DiariesBeware, it contains spoilers!

Now, months after this devastating tragedy, everyone is dealing with the loss of their loved ones in different ways, some more destructively than others.  What happened to Bonnie and Damon, and if they can even be saved, remains a mystery.  Meanwhile, their beloved hometown of Mystic Falls continues to be a magic-free zone, protected by a mysterious new community watch program.  If there’s any hope of salvaging their former lives, our heroes must find a way to push through their grief and band together.  This season will explore themes of loss, denial and what it means to move on in the face of immortality, ultimately begging the age-old question – can you ever really go home again?

The Vampire Diaries season 6 premieres Thursday, Oct. 2 at 8/7c on The CW.
