Death is rarely permanent in the world of The Vampire Diaries since most supernatural characters who bite the dust can be magically brought back to life. However, if you’re hoping to see Paul Wesley reprise his iconic character Stefan Salvatore in the spin-off The Originals, don’t hold your breath.

The Vampire Diaries concluded with the death of Stefan, who sacrificed himself for the greater good. Asked whether Stefan could show up in New Orleans in the future, Wesley simply rejected the idea.

“I don’t think so. I think Stefan has been laid to rest,” Wesley told TV Guide.

Don’t count on Wesley being part of anything similar to The Vampire Diaries either.

“I’m trying to sort of do the opposite of what I’ve being doing for eight years for the most part,” he explained. “I don’t think I’ll be doing a supernatural show anytime soon, that’s for sure. I’m trying to branch out and do different things.”

Are disappointed you won’t see Wesley on The Originals or have you made peace with the death of Stefan? What kind of role do you want Wesley to play in the future?

The Originals will return in the spring of 2018. Want more news? Like our The Originals Facebook page!
