Season 6 Of The Vampire Diaries Will Be Nina Dobrev’s Last

Nina DobrevNina Dobrev announced on her instagram that she was saying farewell to The Vampire Diaries at the end of season six. Julie Plec, the writer and producer of the show, then confirmed it with well wishes for her career. Nina Dobrev has played four characters over the course of five seasons and has been the heart of this show. The show was originally only plotted out to have six seasons, but they were picked up by the network for a seventh. Nina Dobrev wrote that she has always felt that Elena’s journey was only meant for six seasons.

The Vampire Diaries has been one show that I haven’t given up on, despite its ups and downs. The first three seasons of this show were amazing, but it has definitely lost some of its magic along the way. I am still a loyal fan and have continued to watch it. This is why I was really upset by this news. I took to twitter to share my feelings and so did a lot of other fans. Both Elena and Nina Dobrev trended on Twitter after Nina Dobrev posted this on instagram. These are my slightly angry and very passionate tweets after I found this out:

Season seven has already been picked up by The CW and the rest of the main characters, besides Steven R. McQueen, are set to be in it. Steven R. McQueen, who plays Jeremy, had announced that he would no longer have a reoccurring role on the show earlier in the season.

The way I see it, they have two options for Elena. Either they kill her off or she receives the cure, that has just “magically” reappeared. Then she might go off somewhere to live a happy normal human life with Jeremy, her brother.

Season seven may very well just be an epilogue for the other characters, who don’t end up going to The Originals. Or they may try and keep things going without Elena. Many people are speculating a Damon and Bonnie romance, which I personally am not a fan of.

I have read the first seven Vampire Diaries books and Elena was always the main character. How can a TV show survive without its main character? For those of you who aren’t fans of The Vampire Diaries, this is equivalent to killing off Rick Grimes from The Walking Dead or Buffy Summers from Buffy The Vampire Slayer. The show is about Elena falling in love with the Salvatore brothers and the implications that had on her life.

Will they move our favorite Vampire Diaries characters to The Originals?
I sure hope so. First, we need a Caroline and Klaus reunion. We already saw that Stefan and Damon had great character chemistry with the original vampires. The Originals has been great so far compared to the recent seasons of The Vampire Diaries and it would be an easy transition.

Nina Dobrev has an amazing career ahead of her and I know she will do great things. It just hurts as a huge fan of this show that the main character will be leaving. The end of season 6 is quickly approaching and I will have to say goodbye to one of my favorite characters. I am still not quite sure if I will be watching season seven.
