Nina Dobrev could possibly be returning to The Vampire Diaries for its series finale.
“There are discussions going on with Nina,” CW president Mark Pedowitz shared during the 2016 Summer TCA Tour on Thursday (August 11). “We’d love to have Nina back. She was great for The CW. She was integral for The Vampire Diaries.”
He added, “We’d love to have Nina back. She was great for The CW, she was integral for The Vampire Diaries and these are discussions that go on,” he said. “Hopefully she’ll be back, but should it not work out, Julie [Plec, showrunner] has planned a great finale that will satisfy fans.”
Nina, who played both Elena Gilbert and Katherine Pierce on the CW show, left the series during season seven.
A familiar face will pop up in Central City this fall.
According to EW, Susan Walters will be joining the cast of The Flash as Caitlyn Snow’s (Danielle Panabaker) mother Dr. Carla Tannhauser, a “world class biomedical engineer and CEO of a major research company.”

Meanwhile you probably recognize Susan as Carol Lockwood, Tyler’s (Michael Trevino) mom, on The Vampire Diaries.
The Flash premieres on Tuesday, October 4 @ 8PM on The CW.

“The sun, the moon and stars aligned for me one day in March when I got the official call that I had been cast in this very special role as Damon Salvatore,” Ian said. “I’m so very grateful to those who fought for me to have this opportunity (you know who you are), for those that have worked so hard to make this show happen, and to those that have loyally watched it, making it part of their lives. This show has enriched my life greater than anything I’ve done in my career and it will live in my heart. We are a family and I will miss you. Thank you again to this amazing cast and crew, Kevin, Julie, Warner Bros., The CW and the most loyal fan base the world has ever seen. Wow, what a ride.”
“Being cast in THE VAMPIRE DIARIES has changed the trajectory of my life, to say the very least,” Paul added. “I’m beyond fortunate for the experiences I’ve had and lessons I’ve learned over the last seven years. I want to thank Kevin and Julie, as well as Peter Roth and Warner Bros., Mark Pedowitz and The CW, our incredible cast and crew, and especially the TVD fans all around the world who are the reason this show became such a worldwide success. I am beyond grateful to have been a part of it.”
