‘The Vampire Diaries’: Kat Graham assures us Bonnie is returning next season

In the season finale of The Vampire Diaries, the unthinkable happened when we saw Damon (Ian Somerhalder) and Bonnie (Kat Graham) fade to white (we’re not actually going to use the D word because we refuse to believe it).

In a new Ask Ausiello, we were assured by Graham that Bonnie will be returning for season 6. And she reveals her reaction to the heartbreaking season finale.

I know fans have been concerned about Kat Graham not returning to the show next season, following Bonnie’s trip into oblivion with Damon, but the series vet assures us we have nothing to worry about. “She is [back next season], but I don’t know in what form or for how long,” Graham teases, adding that she was “just as shocked as the next person” when she first heard about the ending. “I’ve been on the show for five years, and I cried when I watched the finale.”

The Vampire Diaries returns with all-new episodes Thursdays this fall.
