Isn’t it unfair that we got to see so much of Elena and Damon’s vampire life and so little of their human life together?
Elena and Damon’s love life on ‘The Vampire Diaries’ has been a whirlwind of sorts. Viewers waited years to see them profess their love for each other, and when they did, they had very little time together. Nina Dobrev’s decision to quit the show after season 6 changed the fate of her character.‘The Vampire Diaries’ finale saw a happy ending for all the characters, except Stefan, who sacrificed his life and future with Caroline for his brother. In the final minutes, it is revealed that Elena finally wakes up from Kai’s spell, marries Damon, and thus begins their happily ever after.

Then came ‘Legacies’, an original spin-off of ‘The Vampire Diaries’! The new show followed the events in the aftermath of the Vampire Diaries finale and focused on Klaus’s daughter Hope. Elena and Damon have been referenced in the show, but they haven’t made an appearance yet. Keep reading to learn more about it!
Elena and Damon are alive in ‘Legacies’
It’s been a few years since we saw Elena and Damon in action, but you’ll be happy to know they’re alive! ‘Legacies’, the spin-off series, follows the next generation of supernatural beings including original vampire Klaus Michaelson’s daughter Hope. They learn to control their powers and abilities at the Salvatore School for the Young and Gifted, founded by Alaric and Caroline. The show also sees the couple’s twin daughters Lizzie and Josie and brings back some of your favourite Mystic Falls residents. The couple you’ve been waiting to see, however, doesn’t make an appearance.
The first season’s tenth episode sees Josie mention Damon and Elena, in a conversation that discusses the supernatural school’s funding. She tells Lizzie,”Damon Salvatore has been as generous as he can be. But he and Elena have kids of their own that they need to take care of“. The incident takes place in a different timeline, but it’s clear that the couple is alive and well during ‘Legacies’.
Their daughter Stephanie Salvatore is revealed in ‘Legacies’
While the show chronicles the life of Klaus’ daughter Hope, it took the opportunity to discuss Elena and Damon’s life! Fans wish they could’ve seen the epic couple live out the rest of their days, but their daughter’s revelation was enough. There’s another incident that occurs in an alternate timeline when the Jinni grants Lizzie’s wish to get rid of Hope. It is revealed that Josie and Lizzie are attending Mystic Falls High because Lizzie wished the Salvatore School out of existence. Josie asks Lizzie to steal Alaric’s watch and finally reveals the name of Elena and Damon’s daughter!
“Just get dad’s watch like you promised. Stefanie Salvatore’s dad gave him the watch”, she says, and fans recognised her name as a tribute to Stefan, who gave his life for his brother. The references have been a bit out of the blue and are part of fractured narratives, but it’s still a fan-service! Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder have both completed their association with the series and have no plans to return, so this will do.
Will they join the cast in ‘Legacies’ Season 3?
The events of Elena and Damon’s lives are only mentioned in alternate realities, but fans aren’t bogged down by it. Actors Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder have moved on to other projects, so it’s hard to tell if they’ll return. Since the happy couple still lives in Mystic Falls, it’d be incredible to see them pay a visit to the school. It is, after all, Stefan and Damon’s family house, holds history and is dear to them. Whether in a flashback scene or introducing new scenarios to divulge more details, we’d say there’s potential for things to change!
The third season will return next year and is expected to solve the cliffhanger between Hope and Landon being unable to wake up. There’s no telling about what will happen to The Salvatore School without them, so fans are looking forward to it.
