Although The Vampire Diaries is famous for bringing back its deceased characters, many fans are taking Kol’s (Nathaniel Buzolic) death particularly hard. While the rest of his remaining undead siblings are headed for a spin-off, The Originals, Kol remains six feet under.

The shows’ executive producer, Julie Plec, is more than aware that fans are grieving for Kol, but she explained the reason she won’t bend to their demands that he return to one of the shows in a recent tweet.

After a user on the social networking site told her, “It's not good going against the fans wish for Kol to live. It could give you a bad reputation as a writer,” Julie decided to respond.

Her entire lengthy post is below, but here’s a snippet: “Storytelling is not a democracy and it never will be. I love and admire the passion of the Kol fan base, but no petition, or trending topic, or ongoing twitter assault on my mentions is going to make us do something we don't believe is right or necessary for the show right now.”

But that doesn’t mean she’s shut the door on Kol for good. Julie wrote, “Maybe one day you'll see Kol again when the story is right. Maybe not. I hope you'll keep watching anyway.” Oh, and also, please stop sending her mean tweets. 

In a recent interview with Dubrovnik Today, Nathaniel noted that there’s a possibility he’ll show up on The Originals. When asked what he’s up to next, the actor said, “Although my character has sadly passed away, there’s gonna be lots of opportunities for flashbacks because The Originals is such a great story. It sort of goes into the world of how these vampires became who they were and why people were so scared of this Original family.”

Let’s just hope the stars — and the story and Nathaniel’s schedule — align, so we can have more Kol in our lives one day.

Julie Plec’s full TwitLonger post:

I recently received this tweet. Not trying to be mean, but there is so much wrong with this sentence:

@julieplec: “It's not good going against the fans wish for Kol to live. It could give you a bad reputation as a writer.”

Let me elaborate: Storytelling is not a democracy and it never will be. I love and admire the passion of the Kol fan base, but no petition, or trending topic, or ongoing twitter assault on my mentions is going to make us do something we don't believe is right or necessary for the show right now. Some of you have gotten a bit meanly personal. Others have shown nothing but grace. And your enthusiasm means the world to all of us. But if you want a choose-your-own adventure, go to the library. Otherwise, find it in your hearts to trust that we love the story we're telling and are going to keep giving 1000% of our creative souls to it --- even when it makes a few people unhappy. Maybe one day you'll see Kol again when the story is right. Maybe not. I hope you'll keep watching anyway.

With love, respect, and the desire for a cleaner and kinder Timeline,
