Nina Dobrev was the big topic at The CW’s panel during 2017 Winter TCA Press Tour this weekend! Will she be coming back for The Vampire Diaries series finale this Spring?!

Network president Mark Pedowitz told reporters, “The best way I can answer that question is Julie, Kevin, the studio and the CW promise a fantastic series finale. Pedowitz said when asked if Dobrev, will return for one final goodbye with the Salvatore brothers.

Julie recently said that Nina “100 percent” wants to reprise her role as Elena for the final episode, as long as scheduling works out.


In August, Pedowitz said the network was having “discussions” with Dobrev about returning after she exited the series at the end of season six. “There are discussions going on with Nina, we’d love to have her back,” he said at the time. “These are discussions that go on, hopefully she’ll be back, but should it not work out, Julie has planned out a great series finale for fans.”
