Ian Somerhalder might wear Damon Salvatore’s cap once again for the ‘The Vampire Diaries’ crossover on ‘Supernatural’ Season 16.
The dream crossover of ‘Supernatural’ with ‘The Vampire Diaries’ was planned way back. But things could not materialize due to Julie Plec, creator of ‘The Vampire Diaries’ backing off. Now that both the shows have ended, Julie is thinking of resurrecting the dead dream. It seems like the reboot of ‘Supernatural’ and ‘The Vampire Diaries’ is in the offing. And with this, we can expect Ian Somerhalder back to swoon us with his Damon Salvatore charm.

‘Supernatural’ Season 16 renewed after cancellation
The CW’s long-running show ‘Supernatural’, which was finally planned to conclude with season 15 this spring, is not going to end too soon. It will have the rare chance of getting two finales.
The outbreak of the pandemic has had a huge effect on the world at large, with the entertainment industry being hit especially hard. This has completely upended the production of both movies and television shows, with many of the shows cranking out the final episodes for their seasons.
May 18 was the intended release date for the long-awaited final episode of the show, but the series ended on March 23rd after the airing the 13th episode of the 15th season, which has been confirmed as the show’s last episode “for a while”.
The show had shot up to the season’s 18th episode. ‘Supernatural’ could not pull the curtains on 18th May and has got a new lease of life. It is rumoured that the creators are planning to add another season, that is ‘Supernatural’ Season 6, before bidding adieu forever. And lately, they have found the reason for reviving the series for another season.
The crossover dream in the past was shattered by Julie Plec
Earlier, Julie was having two minds on the ‘Supernatural’ and ‘The Vampire Diaries’ crossover event. The makers of the series ‘Supernatural’ came with an offer to crossover Damon Salvatore aka Ian Somerhalder on their show. But Julie wasn’t able to decide how she will bring the two series together. She feared that the crossover with ‘Supernatural’, may make her show ‘The Vampire Diaries’ darker.

Julie confessed at Q&A session for The CW network, “In Season 1 or 2 of ‘The Vampire Diaries’, they approached us about maybe doing some kind of ‘Supernatural’ crossover”.
She revealed her views saying, “Kevin [Williamson] and I were like, ‘absolutely not, because we are vampires and werewolves. We don’t have demons. We don’t have Hell. We don’t have the Devil. We don’t have any of that stuff! It’s like two completely different ‘Supernatural’ universes!’
And she rekindled our hopes with the statement, “but now looking back with some distance that would have been fun!“
‘Supernatural’ and ‘The Vampire Diaries’ resurrects for an epic crossover
Unlike other The CW shows, which are simply opting to abbreviate their seasons, ‘Supernatural’ will eventually produce its remaining season.
It is likely The CW will market these remaining episodes as an entirely separate season. That being said, by the time the episodes resume production and are finally aired, it will likely be time for the newest season of television shows to begin.
The CW will take the opportunity of this situation and call the remaining episodes the new season. To add some more fodder for ‘Supernatural’ Season 16, the show is planning to materialize the long pending dream of crossover with ‘The Vampire Diaries’. Julie Plec may finally accept the crossover offer from ‘Supernatural’s’ team that she rejected in the past.
But, the showdown has given enough time to her to think of a better plot for the crossover. It is rumoured that she has said yes to the dream crossover event of ‘Supernatural’ and ‘The Vampire Diaries’. If there is even a bit of truth in these rumours, then the future is bright for ‘Supernatural’ Season 16.
And it is time to go weak under our knees once again! Of course, ‘The Vampire Diaries’ and ‘Supernatural’ crossover will see Ian Somerhalder returning as the hot vampire Damon Salvatore.
