Damon Salvatore is back! At least that’s what Ian Somerhalder is saying in his blood-drenched Instagram post. 

Turns out you can’t keep Mystic Falls’ bad boy down for long. Damon sacrificed himself to save Elena, Stefan and all of their friends in Season 5 of “The Vampire Diaries,” but he appears to be back and up to his old tricks. 
Somerhalder gave no clues as to how or why Damon is making his return — flashbacks? Dreams? Resurrection? — but the vampire seems to be quenching his thirst. 
Find out what Damon is doing back in town when “The Vampire Diaries” premieres Oct. 2 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.
