Ian Somerhalder answers fan questions during day two of The Vampire Diaries Q&A held at BloodyNightCon 4 Fan Event on Sunday (May 18) in Barcelona, Spain.
The 35-year-old actor was joined by his co-stars Zach Roerig, Michael Trevino, and Malese Jow, the latter of whom even got a proposal during the event!
“We will definitely see Ian Somerhalder and Kat Graham on the show,” Executive Producer Julie Plec confirmed to EW after their characters’ deaths. “I mean, there’s a million different ways that you can do that. But as far as in what context — how, why, and where? — that’s part of the mystery.”
She also addressed rumors that the show was ending after next season. “No. It’s not on our radar yet,” Julie said. “You could ask 10 different people that question and you’d get 10 different answers, in terms of how long the life of the show is. Warner Bros. would say, ’17 seasons!’ And I think I would say, ‘Seven!’ (Laughs) Presumably we’ll land somewhere closer to my wishes or theirs, depending on the circumstances.”
