Here is a great news for Vampire Diaries fans. Their favourite vampire Damon Salvatore is back on the show in his original avatar -- a vampire.

Ian Somerhalder, who plays the popular character, has posted a big spoiler photo on his Instagram account, confirming that Damon will return on the CW's vampire drama.

The fan favourite star has shared a picture of him as Damon with protruding vampire teeth and blood spilling from his mouth till his neck and soaking his shirt.

Fans will obviously find him hot in his latest look.

There is one more great news for Delena fans.

The toxic romance between Damon and Elena will remain intact in the upcoming season and it was confirmed by none other that the show producer Caroline Dries.

"I've been getting all of these hate messages like, 'You think you can do a season without Delena? You're crazy,'" Dries told Entertainment Weekly.

"The fans have nothing to worry about. We know what we're doing. Nobody's going to abandon any love triangle. Everything will be fine. There will be plenty of Delena goodness for people," she added.

'Plenty of Delena goodness' will definitely cheer fans of Damon and Elena romance who were mourning the death of Damon.

The Season 5 finale ended with Damon and Bonnie getting trapped in the Other Side, which was on the brink of collapse suggesting that both of them are dead.

Meanwhile, Elena and Stefan, the younger Salvatore brother, were seen grieving deeply after the elder Salvatore's sad demise.

The recently released teaser of the upcoming season showed Damon urges a crying Elena to move on in life.

But how will Damon return from the dead? Will he return as a ferocious blood sucking vampire as teased by Somerhalder or as a human with erased memories?

All questions will be answered when the Season 6 of The Vampire Diaries will premiere on 2 October on The CW network.
