Where does that leave Elena and Damon’s possible comeback? While fans continue to create theories around what could happen in season 3, Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev gave some serious update on their future appearance on the show. Read on to know more.
What is ‘Legacies’ about?
Even though it has been three years since ‘The Vampire Diaries‘ ended, fans have been hooked to the spin-off series’ that The CW and Julie Plec worked their magic on. While fans were not happy about ‘The Originals’ ending, two seasons later, ‘Legacies’ has made its mark in the TVD universe with an 8.9/10 rating by TV.com
The series focuses on Klaus and Hayley’s daughter Hope Mikaelson who has descended from some powerful vampires, werewolves, and witches that carry on the ‘Legacies’ of characters from ‘The Vampire Diaries.’
Following from where ‘The Originals’ left off, 17-year-old Hope attends the famous Salvatore School which is for the young and gifted. Along with her, there are other vampires, werewolves, and witches like the Alaric Saltzman’s twins, Lizzie and Josie Saltzman, who mature in the most unconventional way possible.
Damon and Elena’s speculated season 3 comeback
While it is known that Elena and Damon died in the final episode of ‘The Vampire Diaries’, they made a comeback in the ‘Legacies’. So, clearly, they’re both alive and healthy. But how did they manage to do that?
In ‘The Originals,’ many references were proving that Elena and Damon exist. It was later revealed that Elena has finally become a doctor and owns a clinic. Meanwhile, Damon turned human after he took the elixir.
The couple’s happily ever after set the tone of the TVD finale which made fans curious to know if they would ever make a comeback, specifically in season 3. Having left TVD in season 6, but also returning for the finale and for one episode of ‘The Originals’, there seems to be a fat chance that Elena might make a comeback after all.
On the other hand, Ian Somerhalder has expressed in several interviews and online statements that he has grown out of the character and wouldn’t want to return. However, one character that could appear is Elena and Damon’s daughter- Stefanie Salvatore.
Season 3 release date update
In January 2019, Julie Plec and The CW network announced the revival of the show with season 2. At the time of the second instalment’s release, season 3 was confirmed to be released in January 2021.
However, now as things have turned out, there could be a slight delay in the release of season 3. In March 2020, production was shut down following the COVID-19 pandemic. Consequently, the sixteenth episode served as a spring finale as the production team had run out of episodes to air. According to online sources, the upcoming season could have a summer release.
