If you have been watching The Vampire Diaries over the years, like me, then the fact that the series is ending in only a few weeks is most likely giving you the sad vibes. On the upside, when a show knows that the end is near, they have the opportunity to bring back characters and provide some sorely needed closure for fans.
The announcement that Nina Dobrev would be reprising her role as Elena in the finale was something many of us were hoping for since her story definitely wasn’t over. In recent weeks, CW has been revealing additional characters to delight of fans!
David Anders: John Gilbert
Elena’s biological father tweeted that he was headed to Atlanta, where the show films. He also recently tweeted a picture with Paul Wesley and Michael Malarkey. With Elena making a return, I can’t wait to see how they work his character back into mix as well!
I'm headed to ATL on the morrow.
Do the math.

Steven R. McQueen: Jeremy Gilbert
Last we knew, Elena’s brother had left Mystic Falls to pursue art school (aka vampire hunting.) I was hoping to see his return as the show ends, and this way we can find out what he has been up to since he left town. His recent Instagram post indicates that our wish might come true!
Chris Wood: Kai Parker
Our evil warlock with siphoning powers is also headed back into town! Seeing as how he is the sole reason for Elena being stuck in a magic induced sleep, perhaps he will be ‘gently’ persuaded to bring her back? Recent photos released by CW gives a glimpse of his return.
The Vampire Diaries airs Fridays at 8 p.m. on The CW.
