‘The Vampire Diaries’ season 5 debate: Could Candice Accola’s Caroline find new love?

Candice AccolaYou knew that with so many characters leaving “The Vampire Diaries” for “The Originals,” there were going to be a number of new faces that turn up as a result. Well, we can now confirm at least what sort of new characters will end up moving into Mystic Falls.

Speaking in a brand-new interview with TVLine, executive producer Julie Plec hinted that college is going to be the new environment rather than high school, and this will of course lead to a number of exciting new opportunities for Elena, Damon, and the rest of the gang:

“We’re definitely going to be entering an entire new world at Whitmore College, so we’ll get to meet new friends and new enemies … There’ll be a lot of new people entering our universe that we’ll get to know well — and then also maybe some new romantic interests for some of our characters.”

So who are some of the top candidates to get a little bit of romance on right about now? We have to pinpoint Caroline as one possibility, given that we don’t know whether or not Michael Trevino’s Tyler is going to actually come back. Meanwhile, it’s also possible that Elena eventually could decide that the Salvatore brothers are not worth the drama that they bring, but this is really all just speculation on our part. This is still very early on in the summer, and there is a great deal of time in order to figure out just where the story goes from here.

Is there any sort of storyline or character that you would like to see born out of the stars of “The Vampire Diaries” in college? If so, be sure to share your thoughts below!
