Has The CW renewed “The Vampire Diaries” for another season? Are Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder reuniting for season 9?
Could it be possible that the Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder reconciliation is the only way the show can be saved from cancellation due to plummeting ratings?
According to Celeb Dirty Laundry, while it is still unsure which role the actress will reprise in “The Vampire Diaries” season 8, whether she would be Elena Gilbert or Katherine Pierce, viewers have surely been yearning for their reunion, something that might just bring them to the top of the ratings game.
However, the report noted that this might not sit well with the actor’s wife.
“Things could get uncomfortable on the set of ‘TVD’ if Nina Dobrev returns,” CDL stated. “After all, Nina would be working with former boyfriend Ian Somerhalder. Love scenes between Nina and Ian would cause a lot of problems for Ian at home since wife Nikki Reed hates Nina.”
Despite this possible repercussion, the entertainment site pointed out that her return and possible reunion with her former beau “could mean a serious ratings boost” for the “The Vampire Diaries” season 8 or even for the rumored season 9.
In the meantime, it can be recalled that back in April, executive producer Julie Plec hinted that the eight season might already be the last, TV Line reported.
“I’m going to be dead honest with you: I was so happy to get Season 8 that even the idea of Season 9 is so far away — I haven’t even started thinking about it,” the showrunner quipped.
She disclosed, though, that if they feel that there is more to tell about the characters of “The Vampire Diaries” season 8, “we’ll advocate for that; if we feel like there’s nothing else we can do, then I might make a call up to the bosses.”
