The Vampire Diaries may have ended, but that doesn't necessarily mean the show's beloved characters and their stories have reached their final bow.
Series creator Julie Plec, for her part, knows that there are still more stories to be fleshed out from the vampire drama's franchise. And while she's saying that it won't happen right away, she seems optimistic to continue the story down the line.
Here's the latest from Plec:
My hope is The Originals will stay on and that I can bring some of these characters over there.
I could see our universes coming together in five years, 10 years, when people miss the shows. There’s still stories to be told for The Originals that our characters here very smoothly and seamlessly fit into, so if we don’t get to do that while The Originals is still on the air, I think that one day, if somebody wanted it badly enough, it could exist.
