You won’t even have time to miss Caroline Forbes when she disappears from “The Vampire Diaries” because Candice King is already back from maternity leave.
When the actress announced that she was pregnant in August 2015, fans started panicking, knowing that King would need to take some time off for maternity leave after having her little bundle of joy. On Jan. 15, King had her baby girl and began her break from the show.
Not long after, series creator Julie Plec announced that King would miss four to five episodes of filming while she took her maternity leave, and that break is just about to start in the run of the show, now that “The Vampire Diaries” will soon run out of episodes that were filmed before the actress gave birth.
Not to worry though, King announced via Instagram on Wednesday (March 2) that she is back in action on the set. “Such a warm welcome from my Vampire family! So excited to be stepping back into Caroline’s shoes… Time to finish up Season 7,” King says.
“The Vampire Diaries” airs Fridays at 7 p.m. CT right here on CW33.
