Fans of the CW network’s hit show, “The Vampire Diaries,” were heartbroken when Nina Dobrev was written out of the series in Season 6. And now, the CW president revealed that he didn’t want to let Dobrev go and offered that the star is welcome to come back “anytime.”
Mark Pedowitz told reporters during a Television Critics Association panel held Tuesday that they would have “loved Nina to stay,” People reported. He also praised the actress' work during the six years she was on “The Vampire Diaries” and added, “She is welcome back any time she wants to come back."
In May, Dobrev told the magazine that she was going to miss working with her “Vampire Diaries” family. "I was very aware of how lucky I am – and how lucky I've been over the past six years – to have this incredible family, and [I'm] very aware of how much I'm going to miss them," she said.
Meanwhile, Pedowitz described how Season 7 will focus on Ian Somerhalder’s Damon and Paul Wesley’s Stefan. He noted how the network has had “great success doing shows about brothers,” referencing to the hit series “Supernatural.”
The series’ co-creator, Julie Plec, also shared a few information about the three new characters in season 7 of “The Vampire Diaires.” According to Deadline, Plec told reporters at Tuesday’s TCA event that new heretics named Nora, Mary Louise and Valeria, will be part of Lily’s little coven. She described them as “magnificent, fierce, and wildly nasty.”
The series executive also revealed that “another curveball” is coming in Season 7 of “The Vampire Diaries.” Plec explained, “It’s different than anything that we’ve done. Also, we’re playing with time in a way that we don’t usually do, which is adding to the fun of the narratives … some flashbacks, a few flash forwards… there’s some fun to be had.”
Season 7 of "The Vampire Diaries" is slated to begin Oct. 2.
