We knew it was coming. First Nina Dobrev pulled out of the series at the end of season 6. Last week Kat Graham made known her decision to leave The Vampire Diaries after the upcoming season 8. Now Ian Somerhalder has given us the news that I personally dreaded. The Vampire Diaries will end after season 8- next year.
At Walker Stalker Con this past weekend, Ian Somerhalder was quoted saying “We have decided to do one last season to really do the story justice.” Now, I haven’t particularly missed whiny Elena on the show, but if Nina Dobrev doesn’t come back to wrap this series up nicely I will be very hurt. There needs to be a proper Originals/TVD crossover with more characters interacting and my main squeeze Stefan (Paul Wesley) needs to get his happily ever after too (preferably with Caroline #steroline for ever).
I know I’m in the minority that are truly still enjoying this show, but it’s always sad to see a series come to an end! Now here’s to hoping they end it right!
