Teen dramas like Gossip Girl, One Tree Hill, The Vampire Diaries, The O.C. and many more live in the corners of our mind, rent-free. TVD, in particular, garnered a cult fan following and is talked about even today. Moreover, it made household stars out of its leading cast which comprised of Nina Dobrev as Elena Gilbert and Paul Wesley and Ian Somerhalder as everyone's favourite vampire siblings, Stefan and Damon Salvatore.

While The Vampire Diaries' final season aired in 2017, years later, speculations have been rife that there could be a possibility of another season in the works. During an appearance on Sirius XM's Radio Andy via E! News, Andy Cohen asked Somerhalder if the rumours about TVD Season 9 were indeed true. To this, Ian simply stated, "I have not heard anything about a season nine." Moreover, the 42-year-old actor pointed out a valid reason of why it wouldn't be realistic for a TVD reboot in regard to the storytelling.

*SPOILERS ALERT* While Stefan dies and embarks on the afterlife, Damon and Elena transform back to humans and live a happily married 'mortal' life. "What would happen? Damon would have like, grey hair and they'd have canes. Like, 'Oh, I've got to feed the baby,'" Somerhalder quipped.

While Ian truly believes The Vampire Diaries "ran a great course," the V Wars star also noted how his show continues to be a success on streaming platforms which would deem a reboot as redundant. According to Somerhalder, TVD is "still living" which is so amazing to him.
