Ian Somerhalder Confirms 'The Vampire Diaries' Exit After Season 8

Ian Somerhalder Confirms 'The Vampire Diaries' Exit After Season 8

Ian Somerhalder is clarifying everything he said last week about The Vampire Diaries coming to an end after next season.

The 37-year-old actor took to Twitter and explained that next season will be his last.

“Hey all, so… Last weekend I talked to an audience at a Q&A about the end of #TVD and how excited I was to make what I believe – my last year – be as great as possible. Somehow in my infinite wisdom and end-of-season foggy brain, I managed to make it sound like the show was coming to an end. Cut-to the press running stories that the show would be done after Season 8. Thing is, the people who actually make that decision (the CW and WB) haven’t made it yet! So let’s take things one step at a time: Season 7 wrap, vacation, lots of sleep, let the writers get started on Season 8, and then we’ll all see where we go from there. Until then, much love ;),” Ian tweeted.

Ian Somerhalder Reveals the Hardest Scene He's Ever Done for 'The Vampire Diaries'

Ian Somerhalder Reveals the Hardest Scene He's Ever Done for 'The Vampire Diaries'

Ian Somerhalder is opening up about one of his more difficult scenes for The Vampire Diaries from over the years.

He actually mentioned one of our favorite Damon moments ever!

“Episode 14 of Season 2,” Ian wrote in his EW blog. “It’s when Damon is lying in the road, and the girl Jessica pulls up. She gets out of the car looking at this peculiar scene, a man lying in the middle the road drinking out of a flask… He is so distraught, missing being human, but he can tell no one his true feelings unless he compels them and kills them.”

He continued, “It was such a cathartic scene for me to shoot. A very close second was the scene at the end of episode 10 of this season when Damon tells his mom that he loves her and that he’s sorry in the battle! Wow, two great scenes…”

Watch the scene he’s talking about below!

The 37-year-old Vampire Diaries star has joined the effort to ensure that there are more elephants born this year than there are killed by poachers by partnering with WildAid’s “Year of the Elephant” campaign.

Ian emphasized that not buying ivory products is one of the best ways to save elephants.
