News broke this weekend that The Vampire Diaries would be ending after eight seasons on The CW, and fans want to know if Nina Dobrev‘s Elena will make an appearance!
The cast and showrunner Julie Plec sat down for an interview during 2016 Comic-Con, and answered that very question.
“Not to put too much pressure on anything Nina Dobrev..but a promise was made. An emotional promise that I’d like to see come to life. You heard it here…there’s been friendship promises made, and now we’ll see if we can deliver on them,” Julie said. Watch below!

So sad – The Vampire Diaries is set to end after this upcoming season!
Ian Somerhalder and Paul Wesley reacted to the news in a statement.
“The sun, the moon and stars aligned for me one day in March when I got the official call that I had been cast in this very special role as Damon Salvatore,” Ian said. “I’m so very grateful to those who fought for me to have this opportunity (you know who you are), for those that have worked so hard to make this show happen, and to those that have loyally watched it, making it part of their lives. This show has enriched my life greater than anything I’ve done in my career and it will live in my heart. We are a family and I will miss you. Thank you again to this amazing cast and crew, Kevin, Julie, Warner Bros., The CW and the most loyal fan base the world has ever seen. Wow, what a ride.”
“Being cast in THE VAMPIRE DIARIES has changed the trajectory of my life, to say the very least,” Paul added. “I’m beyond fortunate for the experiences I’ve had and lessons I’ve learned over the last seven years. I want to thank Kevin and Julie, as well as Peter Roth and Warner Bros., Mark Pedowitz and The CW, our incredible cast and crew, and especially the TVD fans all around the world who are the reason this show became such a worldwide success. I am beyond grateful to have been a part of it.”
The final 16 episodes will begin on Friday, October 21 (8:00-9:00pm ET/PT). Watch the farewell video below.
Allison Scagliotti is hopping networks this fall and heading to The Vampire Diaries.
Via TVLine, the 25-year-old actress will star as Georgie in the upcoming season.
Georgie, who “channels her existential anxieties into a new field of study that will force her to confront her deepest fears,” makes her first appearance in the Season 8 premiere on October 21st.
While Allison will head to the CW for the role, that doesn’t mean she’s leaving Stitchers, nor does she know anything about another season of the Freeform show. Check her tweet below!
We’re still a few months away from the season eight premiere of The Vampire Diaries, but we’re already getting excited.
Given all the rumors that this may be the final season (Ian Somerhalder and Kat Graham both confirmed it would be their last), we are reminiscing about the last seven years with our favorite Mystic Falls residents.
So that begs the question – which TVD season has been your favorite so-far?
Was it the era of Stefan (Paul Wesley) and Elena (Nina Dobrev), Elena and Damon, or maybe even the post-Elena period?
Take our poll below!
Will Stefan (Paul Wesley) and Caroline (Candice King) live happily ever after?
According to TV Guide, a new woman in Mystic Falls may come between Steroline in the upcoming eighth season.
“We hear that a powerful new woman is coming to town, and she quickly takes a liking to Stefan,” the mag reports. “What this woman wants, she usually gets – even if she has to use questionable methods.”
Who is this woman exactly? It was recently just revealed (via Deadline) that Containment star Kristen Gutoskie will play Seline, “a warm, nurturing nanny of two young kids by day, and a small-town girl trying to find her place in a dangerous world by night.”
Could that be Stefan’s new love interest? Time to speculate!
WHAT DO YOU THINK will happen with Steroline this season?
