In news that does not come as a surprise, yet is welcome to confirm nonetheless, The Wrap reports that Annie Wersching will play a significant role on The Vampire Diaries Season 7.
It doesn’t sound as if Wersching will be upgraded to series regular on The CW smash this fall, but her character of Lily Salvatore will be involved with a “major” storyline, according to the outlet.
Wersching came on board toward the end of The Vampire Diaries Season 6.
Believed to be long dead by both her sons, Lily was actually a (reformed?) Ripper who was trapped in the 1903 Prison World.
On the May season finale, we learned that Kai succeeded in bringing back her scary friends, a bunch of Heretics who are the living, breathing, frightening combination of vampire and witches.
Expect Lily and her pals to serve as the main antagonists when The Vampire Diaries returns in October.
