It seems like vampire fever isn't over yet as we might see a familiar face yet again. Actor-director Paul Wesley is returning back to his supernatural roots with "Shadowhunters" Season 2, Episode 16. The episode will air on July 17, 2017.

Wesley played the role of Stefan Salvatore in "The Vampire Diaries" from 2009 until 2017.

According to him, Wesley really gets how things work in their world.
