The supernatural drama The Vampire Diaries ran for eight seasons and featured a cast consisting of vampires, werewolves, witches, hybrids, doppelgängers, and mermaids.

The show spawned two spin-offs, The Originals, and Legacies that have shed some clues, giving fans some insight into Damon’s life following the events on The Vampire Diaries.

In The Originals, Damon from The Vampire Diaries is not mentioned, but in the season 4 episode, there is a shot of a sign that says “Elena Salvatore, MD” This confirms that Elena: had become a doctor and is also married to Damon.

In Legacies, The Vampire Diaries Spin-off, Season 1, Damon is referenced multiple times. A Jinni grants Lizzie Saltzman various wishes that create alternate universes.

In one, Saltzman tells his sister, “I mean, Damon Salvatore (from The Vampire Diaries ) has been as generous as he can be, but he and Elena have children of their own to care for.”

In a Season 2 episode, Lizzie tells Sebastian that the 1969 Chevy Camaro convertible that he drives was a sweet sixteen-year-old gift from his father’s friend. That friend is Damon from The Vampire Diaries.

What fans might not remember is that in The Vampire Diaries season 6 episode “I’ll Marry You In The Golden Summer”, Stefan warned his brother that he would be in danger if word ever got out that he had the cure. running through his veins.

Damon and Elena’s decision to stay in Mystic Falls may have something to do with their best friend being a powerful Bennett witch who created some kind of cover-up spell or found another way to keep word from getting out on The Vampire Diaries.
