Now that we’re saying farewell to Nina on ‘TVD’, does that mean we’re saying good riddance to her character, Elena Gilbert, for good? EXCLUSIVELY learned whether or not we can expect to see Nina on the series finale!

We’re still torn up over Nina Dobrev’s shocking departure from The Vampire Diaries! However, the show must and will go on without Elena Gilbert — but does that mean we will be seeing the last of Nina, 26? has the EXCLUSIVE scoop on Nina’s fate on the show — and if she’ll be back for the series finale!

Nina Dobrev: Returning To ‘The Vampire Diaries’ For Series Finale?

“The show wants to give Nina her proper finish. She deserves it and many don’t want to ruin that by adding her to next season even in a guest spot situation. If this is her last season they want to make it her last season and make it mean something. They would only consider her to return during the finale,” a source tells EXCLUSIVELY.

While we’re so sad about Nina leaving, it only makes sense that her character would get that “proper finish.” We’ve grown to know and love Elena for six seasons now, so she without a doubt deserves a good (and bittersweet) send off!

Plus, it sounds like it’s not completely out of the picture for her to return in the series finale. Either way, we’re trusting the TVD creative team to give Nina/Elena the perfect closing storyline — and leave the door open just a little for her to come back. spoke to Nina’s rep, who said at that’s time it’s too early to tell if she will return, but we certainly hope to see her again!

However, Ian, 36, actually tried to convince Nina to stay on one more season!

“Ian met with Nina and pretty much begged her not to leave,” a source tells HollywoodLife.comEXCLUSIVELY. “Although her leaving does make things easier for him personally, he knows how important Nina is to the show. Now, Ian’s concerned the show is a sinking ship.”
