Actor, director, and producer Paul Wesley is widely known for playing the role of Stefan Salvatore in The CW’s “The Vampire Diaries” from 2009 to 2017. The series has had a crossover with the network’s another supernatural TV series “The Originals” episode title "A Streetcar Named Desire" in 2016. TVD’s season finale has already showcased Stefan’s death, which means that his story has finally ended in both series permanently. However, there are fans with high hopes that the actor would appear in the fifth season of TO with Nina Dobrev. Recently, the actor spoke with TV Guide and discussed his possible appearance in the series.

“The Originals” season 5 appearance

TV Guide yesterday asked Paul Wesley about his possible cameo on “The Originals” season 5 and his answer is bad news for all fans. The actor said that he doesn’t think he would still appear in the series since Stefan Salvatore has been laid to rest and his story has ended. “I'm trying to sort of do the opposite of what I've been doing for eight years for the most part,” he said. “I don't think I'll be doing a supernatural show anytime soon, that's for sure. I'm trying to branch out and do different things."

Yes, this is certainly not a happy thought for all fans of Paul Wesley. However, as TV Guide points out, there’s a large set of characters in “The Vampire Diaries” that are still alive during the season 8 finale.

This only means that some of them might just appear in “The Originals” hopefully anytime soon, which is certainly good news for all fans. As for Nina Dobrev, she has not yet discussed the possibility of making an appearance in the series. Let’s hope for the best, folks!

Is jealousy the reason why the actor won’t appear in the series?

Paul Wesley and Nina Dobrev were previously linked to each other following the actress’ breakup with Ian Somerhalder, who is now married to Nikki Reed.

Phoebe Tonkin has just got back with the actor after a few months of the split. Theories have it that she is the reason why he refused to make an appearance with Dobrev. The couple did not reveal why they previously broke up but fans suggest that it could be because of jealousy of his “The Vampire Diaries” co-star.

Despite his confirmation that a cameo on “The Originals” season 5 is not possible, Paul Wesley is currently hard at work as a director.

He is helming “Shadowhunters” season 2 episode 16, which is set to air on July 17. Oh boy, this is still good news for all his fans!
