Legacies has just revealed the fate of a major Vampire Diaries character

Legacies has just revealed the fate of a major Vampire Diaries character.

Matt Donovan was first introduced as Elena Gilbert's ex boyfriend, back in the original series.

Then, he appeared in two episodes of The Vampire Diaries spin off, where fans discovered he had become the town's sheriff.

However, in season two, there's a new sheriff in town: Sheriff Mac, whose name is a tribute to Marguerite MacIntyre (who played Sheriff Forbes).

Fans were never told what happened to Matt, or even where he went. But in a blink-and-you'll-miss-it moment, Legacies recently confirmed Matt's fate.

It turns out that Matt went from being the sheriff to becoming the mayor of Mystic Falls.

In That's Nothing I Had to Remember, Alaric Saltzman showed Sheriff Mac Matt's new business card while he was being questioned.

It's not clear if Matt will be seen on-screen in Mystic Falls any time soon.

However, the series is set to bring back Chris Wood as Kai Parker.

In case you need a refresher, Kai was the major villain in The Vampire Diaries' sixth season.

He was the one who was stuck in the 1994 prison world with Bonnie and Damon, and who - much, much later - was behind linking Elena and Bonnie's lives.

He was permanently banished and imprisoned in the 2018 Prison World, with the Ascendant acting as the lock-and-key.

According to TV Guidethe character is set to appear in season 2, episode 12. It is not clear yet how many other episodes he will appear in.
