Speculations are rife that Nina Dobrev, 27, will return for the upcoming eight season of The CW's "The Vampire Diaries." Most recent reports claimed that the Bulgarian-Canadian actress will reprise her role as Elena Gilbert, who is Petrova's doppelgänger

While there is no word yet on what the new season will bring to the table, the buzz has been going around for quite a while about Dobrev making her much-awaited comeback for the series eighth season. The rumor started after Dobrev was heard luring Damon Salvatore (Ian Somerhalder) into the vault in "The Vampire Diaries" Season 7 finale, which aired on May 13.

Much to the delight of fans, executive producer Julie Plec previously said she and Dobrev agreed that it would be the last time the actress would appear as a guest star before the series end. Plec added that Dobrev agreed that things could still change.

"Obviously, things can change throughout time, if the show goes on longer than we expect it to, or if we all collectively decide it would be fun to bring her back earlier, and she wanted to," executive producer Julie Plec told TVLine. "I'm sticking with my side of the plan, which is to bring her back at the very end."

Although it is yet to see how Dobrev would return back to the supernatural series, many fans are speculating that Bonnie Bennett (Kat Graham) may sacrifice her life to save Damon. Adding fire to the rumors, it is said that Bonnie's sacrifice would apparently cause Elena to wake up from her slumber.

When she awakens, it is said that Elena will then use her powers to help Damon and Enzo (Michael Malarkey) from the insidious beast. It can be recalled that when Damon got caught inside the Armory with the mysterious creature, he turned into a beast, who executed a slew of people. Speculations claim that it will take no less than Elena to make him remember who he truly is.

If it is not Elena, Dobrev will doubtlessly take on Katherine's role, which would reunite the latter with his first love, Stefan Salvatore (Paul Wesley). Reports claimed that such speculations are possible considering that the entire story was hinged on Katherine liking both Stefan and Damon, setting off a sibling war that spread over decades.

Nonetheless, The CW has scheduled the premiere date for "The Vampire Diaries" Season 8 on Oct. 21, The Christian Times reported.
