Showbiz Junkies caught up with Julie Plec at SDCC to talk all things TVD, including Nina Dobrev’s possible return, the end of TVD and characters possibly showing up on The Originals.
What about the possibility of the return of Elena?
Julie Plec: “Do you realize that I’ve been in here for 35 minutes and you are the first person to ask me about that. I’ve had nine questions about the June wedding and not a single person has asked me about Elena so I’m waiting. Look, all I can say because there is nothing written in stone but Nina made me a promise when she left that she would come back and be a part of the goodbye, and I intend on holding her to that. And I’m sure she intends on living up to it as well so we just have to figure it out – the how, the when, the what – but it would be a real tragedy if we couldn’t bring that story back around full circle.”
Is there a possibility that after it ends we might still see a Vampire Diaries character show up on The Originals?
Julie Plec: “I would love that. I’m using that to hold the network hostage and say, ‘Listen, keep The Originals on the air and I swear at some point we’ll try to find a way to work everybody through those doors because why not? It’s a great world. Vampires are not done – people still like vampires and there’s no other vampires on television that I want to see. I’d love to keep it going.”
