As the latest “Vampire Diaries” season 8 spoilers hinted that Nina Dobrev is making a comeback, various speculations on what role she would reprise have been making headlines.


Would she return as the main protagonist Elena Gilbert or her doppelganger Katherine Pierce?

According to Movie News Guide, the 27-year-old Bulgarian-Canadian actress of The CW’s highly-talked about supernatural TV series might just be back for the eighth season as Katherine, something which might have left the Delena fans in dismay.

Following this report, what her fans can look forward to is how she will be reunited with Ian Somerhalder, who gives life to the anti-hero vampire Damon Salvatore.

The latest “Vampire Diaries” season 8 spoilers did not mention, though, how the reunion would happen.

Meanwhile, the report revealed that “there are several fans who think that Nina’s re-entry into the show was not at all needed at this point,” while the non-Delena followers reportedly thought that Nina Dobrev’s exit made the show “a lot better.”

Amid this rumor, it is now pointed out that the actress’ re-entry as Katherine might affect further the reported “continuous drop in viewership ratings” which happened when she left her role as Elena.

It can be recalled that during the sixth season finale of “Vampire Diaries,” the voice of Nina Dobrev was heard when a mysterious villain of a vault used it in an attempt to entice Ian Somerhalder’s Damon. What type of “Vampire Diaries” season 8 spoilers could this possibly bring? Does it have any significance in the upcoming season?

In an interview with TV Line back in May, executive producer Julie Plec shared some details about the said scene, where the actress was made to record a new material for the series.

“In this particular case, she came in and did the ADR, [short for automated dialogue replacement],” she disclosed. “I reached out and said, ‘We can either cobble it together from a bunch of episodes, or you can come in and see everybody and do ADR. She chose to do it in person, which was great, because it was a nice little personal Nina visit.”

Keep posted for more “Vampire Diaries” season 8 spoilers.
