Don’t you worry about The Vampire Diaries without Nina Dobrev. The CW isn’t. While speaking with reporters ahead of their 2015 Upfront presentation, The CW’s Mark Pedowitz said the popular series will shift its focus to the Salvatore brothers—played by Ian Somerhalder and Paul Wesley—while Kat Graham and Candice Accola will get more time to shine.
“It’s going to be much more focused on the brothers, Damon and Stefan…a lot in place for both Kat Graham and Candice’s character…Most of this year has been getting to a point where we would have a reset, knowing that Nina was leaving, so they’ve done a great job. We’ll see, but we believe—we have a show for 11 years based on two brothers called Supernatural…it’s possible this could happen the same way.”
And about that show following two brothers, don’t think just because it’s entering season 11 that this is the end of the road. “I’m a big believer in the show,” Pedowitz said. “As long as the ratings hold and the boys want to do it, we’re in.”
As for the rumors: That Supernatural spinoff? It’s still in the works with plans to revisit it this June. NBC’s Constantine, which was canceled despite Arrow‘s Stephen Amell offer to appear on the series, isn’t heading to The CW…yet. Those rumors? “Just a rumor,” Pedowitz said.
Don’t fret superhero fans, there’s Legends of Tomorrow coming midseason and you can bet your bottom dollar there will be crossovers between that series, Arrow and The Flash.
Stay tuned for more CW scoop!
