Sneak Peek Photos of Matt Davis from the Pilot Episode of Cult

Matt Davis as Jeff and Jessica Lucas as Skye - CULT Season 1, Episode 1Does anyone miss Alaric Saltzman? No need to answer that because, if you’re a Vampire Diaries fan, your heart most likely breaks into a million little pieces every time Damon is shown lounging at the Mystic Grill and sipping on bourbon all by his lonesome. Or, perhaps, any time someone mentions his name or even the phrase “history class” you feel like bursting into boiling hot tears and crying a river? Let it out, TVD family, just let is out…

True, Alaric’s empty bar stool at the Grill has left a wrenching void in Damon’s life and in our Thursday nights. However, the talented actor — Matt Davis — who bravely shouldered the responsibilities of being Elena and Jeremy’s guardian in TVD Season 3, who loved Aunt Jenna until her tragic end, and who helped Damon and Stefan take down Big Bads all around Mystic Falls isn’t gone at all. In fact, he’s starring in a new CW midseason drama called Cult!

Dive into all the harrowing images from the Cult pilot episode below!

Just in case you’re wondering what Matt Davis’ new thriller series is about, here’s the official synopsis:

Investigative journalist Jeff Sefton has learned to laugh off his brother Nate’s relentless string of obsessions, especially his latest rant that a hit TV show intends to harm him. However, when his brother mysteriously disappears, Jeff takes Nate’s paranoia seriously, and in the process uncovers the dark underworld of the TV show “Cult” and its rabid fans. The only person who seems willing to help Jeff with his investigation is Skye, a young research assistant for “Cult,” who has also started to grow suspicious of the increasingly dark happenings surrounding the show. The fictitious show, centered on the cat-and-mouse game between charismatic cult leader Billy Grimm and LAPD detective Kelly Collins, has become an obsession for its viewers – and now some of its devotees seem to be taking their fixation to deadly extremes in the real world. As Jeff and Skye dig deeper into the fan world, they discover that the gruesome plot twists on television are much more than fantasy for some very unfortunate people. The hardcore fans of “Cult” would kill to see what happens next…

The series stars Matt Davis (“The Vampire Diaries”) as Jeff Sefton, Jessica Lucas (“Melrose Place,” “Cloverfield”) as Skye Yarrow, Alona Tal (“Supernatural,” “The Killing”) as Kelly Collins and Robert Knepper ( “Prison Break,” “Shameless”) as Billy Grimm.

CULT is from Fake Empire and Rockne S. O’Bannon Television in association with Warner Bros. Television and CBS Television Studios, with executive producers Rockne S. O’Bannon (“Farscape,” “V”), Josh Schwartz (“Chuck,” “Gossip Girl”), Stephanie Savage (“Hart of Dixie,” “Gossip Girl”), Len Goldstein (“Hart of Dixie”) and Jason Ensler (“Franklin & Bash,” “Hart of Dixie”). The pilot was directed by Jason Ensler and written by Rockne S. O’Bannon.
