But it sounds like they will need to wait even longer before Tyler Lockwood makes another appearance.
In an interview with TV Guide, producer Julie Plec says Michael Trevino won't be returning to Mystic Falls any time in the near future. How come?
"When Klaus puts his mark on you, you're pretty f---ed," Plec explains. "So we do not have any plans to bring him back until there is a resolution to his Klaus problem and with Katherine it took her out for two years. Tyler does appear in one episode [this season], but it's not his "return."
Elsewhere in the Q&A, Plec says Caroline and Elena may be butting heads soon, while we "haven't seen the end of the strange and somewhat perverse and beautiful and horrific and amazing and awful dynamic between Caroline and Klaus."
