Paul Wesley has been speaking to TV Guide, and what he's revealed will make you cry tears of vervaine.
“I think Stefan has been laid to rest … I’m trying to sort of do the opposite of what I’ve being doing for eight years for the most part. 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.”
So hope for Stefan showing up in New Orleans in The Originals is slim.
As for another VPD character... there's hope for Caroline and Klaus reuniting after all!!! Read all about there here.
