Fans of "The Vampire Diaries" are excitedly counting down the days to the premiere of the CW TV series sixth season which is scheduled to happen in Oct. 2014. However, it looks like the fans should also prepare themselves because a TVD cast member hinted that "The Vampire Diaries" Season 6 could be the last season of the show.

"It very well could be our last [season]. I think now that there's a finality to it, everyone's really realising that this is a very important time in our lives. We created some very cool storytelling," the 35-year-old heartthrob actor stated in a Digital Spy report.

In 2009, Ian Somerhalder started to portray TVD character Damon Salvatore in CW Network's supernatural drama series. The bad boy vampire character met his heartbreaking end in "The Vampire Diaries" Season 5 finale when he died and was not able to come back because the "Other Side" disintegrated.

TVD cast members are currently filming the episodes of "The Vampire Diaries" Season 6. Recently, a teaser trailer has been released to give the devoted fans a foretaste of what the beginning of the new season would look like.

The promo video showed Elena (Nina Dobrev) having a hard time accepting that Damon is gone. As for Damon's fate in the series, the character currently appears only through Elena's hallucinations. "The Vampire Diaries" Season 6 will premiere on Thursday night, Oct. 2, at 8 p.m. EST on the CW Network.

Meanwhile, a Wet Paint report revealed that Ian Somerhalder is busy with his latest project in addition to his workload in "The Vampire Diaries" Season 6. The actor recently shared about his involvement in "The Climate Reality Project" on Instagram.

However, the report further noted that Ian Somerhalder took a major dig at Kim Kardashian on his Instagram post. Ian Somerhalder revealed that he is grateful for the interaction with "The Climate Reality Project" but he is concerned that there are only a few that have awareness when it comes to climate change, oil, renewable energy, policy and a safer sustainable future.

"Yet people know everything about Kim Kardashian! Yikes!" Somerhalder wrote as a caption the shared image on his Instagram account iansomerhalder. Click HERE to see photo. The CW star further added on his Instagram post a plea to his millions of fans and followers to help him in making the fight on climate change a fun, engaging, sustainable and sexy community building with the hashtag #climatehope and #isf which stands for his Ian Somerhalder Foundation.
