Is the end of The Vampire Diaries sooner than we thought?
During a panel at Walker Stalker Con in Nashville on Sunday, Ian Somerhalder revealed that season eight of The Vampire Diaries will be the show’s last.
“We have decided to do one last season to really do the story justice,” he told fans at the convention.
Last month, The CW announced the renewal of the long-running hit for an eighth season along with its entire fall slate.
But with Nina Dobrev’s departure after last season some have wondered how much longer the show had in it.
Now there’s been no confirmation yet, but Somerhalder’s words indicate that next season will be The Vampire Diaries’ last.
The Vampire Diaries airs Fridays at 8/7c on The CW.
What are your thoughts on The Vampire Diaries coming to an end after season 8? Too soon? Or just right?
