Nina Dobrev to Appear in 'The Originals' Season 5 Sans Ian Somerhalder

It looks like there are a lot of possibilities happening in The Originals Season 5. Nina Dobrev, who starred in The Vampire Diaries, may appear in the spinoff. There are talks that she and her ex-boyfriend, Ian Somerhalder, will do a cameo, but it seems like the actor will never reprise his role as Damon Salvatore.

The heartbreaking finale of Season 4 left a ton of open storylines for the next installment. In a bid to save Hope, Vincent Griffith split the Hollow and placed the pieces into the bodies of Mikaelsons – Niklaus, Elijah, Rebekah, and Kol – forcing them to avoid each other for eternity.

The foursome was put in a dilemma where they “had two impossible choices.” The series’ writer explained, “One impossible choice is to sacrifice Hope and the other impossible choice is to say goodbye to one another.” With the life of Hope at stake, Niklaus and Hayley might send their daughter to the Mystic Falls.

Nina Dobrev Will Appear in The Originals Season 5

Many still believe that Hope will enroll herself at the Salvatore School for the Young and Gifted. This is where Nina Dobrev might enter the picture. Fans might have a glimpse of the actress when the series returns to the television screens.

Series creator Julie Plec recently revealed that there are chances Dobrev will be making a special appearance in The Originals Season 5. She said, “There’s a lot of people that could crossover.” She explained that they are thinking of the most clever way that they can include the mythology of The Vampire Diaries in its spinoff’s tradition for the planned crossovers.

Plec recalled a character introduced in Season 3 who has a connection with Niklaus and Elijah would return. This person, Tatia, was also the one responsible for how they became vampires. The creator then confirmed, “So Nina Dobrev will be visiting The Originals for a nice little storyline in our fifth episode which airs November 3.”

Ian Somerhalder’s Return Not Yet Confirmed!

Aside from Dobrev, several outlets reported that Ian Somerhalder might also grace his fans when the series returns to the small screens. They asserted that the TVD couple’s reunion is possible since the actor’s wife and his ex-girlfriend have already clarified the rumors, proving that they remain friends despite their past. However, Plec has not confirmed Somerhalder’s appearance in The Originals Season 5. Everyone should then take the rumors with a grain of salt.
