The Vampire Diaries

Nina Dobrev is officially leaving The Vampire Diaries.

I’ve just spent the most beautiful weekend on Lake Lanier in Georgia with my own TVD Family, the cast and crew of The Vampire Diaries. I want to be the first to tell you that it wasn’t just a holiday celebration, it was a goodbye party. I always knew I wanted Elena’s story to be a six season adventure, and within those six years I got the journey of a lifetime. I was a human, a vampire, a doppelganger, a crazy immortal, a doppelganger pretending to be human, a human pretending to be a doppelganger. I got kidnapped, killed, resurrected, tortured, cursed, body-snatched, was dead and undead, and there’s still so much more to come before the season finale in May. Elena fell in love not once, but twice, with two epic soulmates, and I myself made some of the best friends I’ll ever know and built an extended family I will love forever“.

Meanwhile, “The Vampire Diaries” executive producer Julie Plec, who developed the show alongside Kevin Williamson, released a statement confirming the news about Nina Dobrev leaving The Vampire Diaries.

Saying goodbye to Nina is both bittersweet and beautiful. After six-plus years together, the entire cast and crew of The Vampire Diaries has reached a level of closeness that I don’t think any of us ever expected. Nina is excited to spread her wings, get some rests, travel the world, and also take it by storm,and we support her a thousand-fold. We will miss Nina and the four hundred characters she played, but we look forward to the insane and exciting challenge of continuing to tell stories of our Salvatore Brothers and our much-loved and gifted ensemble“.

Actually, Nina Dobrev is not the only cast member departing the show this season. The executive producer also confirmed that actor Michael Trevino, who plays Tyler Lockwood, will also be leaving the series.

Michael has been a beloved member of the Vampire Diaries family since day one. Even though he’s also going to be out in the world exploring new opportunities, we look forward to finding creative ways to make sure he and his character Tyler Lockwood always remain a part of the show“, she said.

Fans were upset that Nina Dobrev and Michael Trevino are leaving. Some say, they are done watching The Vampire Diaries for good. Well, I have to agree with them. Vampire Diaries was about Elena/Nina without her they will only have a bunch of great supporting actors but no story or show at all.

I think they should just cancel the show. Because without Elena, the show just won’t be the same. The whole reason the Salvatores went to Mystic Falls in the first place was because Nina Dobrev’s character was there. True, that they could bring a new girl for Stefan and Damon, but it won’t be the same. Cancel it while it’s still good.
