‘The Vampire Diaries’ is losing another leading lady! Kat Graham confirmed that next season on the hit CW series will be her last. Yup, she’s following right in Nina Dobrev’s footsteps and leaving! But, wait…does that mean Nina’s character could come back?!
Kat Graham is ready to move on from The Vampire Diaries. After eight seasons on the show, the actress revealed that she will make her big exit in 2017. So WHAT does this mean for her character’s fate on the show?! And does her leaving open the door for Nina Dobrev to make a big return?!
“Season 8 will be my last,” Kat confirmed to Us Weekly at the iHeartRadio Music Awards on April 3. “I just hope that whatever I do after, the crew can come with me. If the crew can come with me, then we’ll be good. The crew is going to be the hardest thing to let go because we’re a family.”
The seventh season of the CW series is currently airing, so we’ll get at least another year of episodes that’ll include Kat’s character, Bonnie, and we’re already anxious to know what’s going to become of her. “There’s some really intense stuff with my character this season,” she added. “I think the biggest episodes I’ve ever had are 20 [airing April 29] and 21 [airing May 6]. It’s pretty major for the character — huge turns, a lot of stunts and cool s**t!”
As we all remember all too well, Nina, who played the lead female, Elena, on the show, famously left the series at the end of Season 6 in 2015. Remember, though…if Bonnie dies, Elena gets to live! So, if show-runners decide to kill off Kat’s character when she leaves, could that mean Nina would come back?!
It’s obviously very unlikely and still so far off, but we have to wonder, you guys! And while the show has been picked up for an eighth season, it won’t be confirmed for months whether or not there’ll be another pickup for continuation. Who knows, maybe the entire show will be canceled after Season 8 anyway! We sure hope not, but we gotta look at all the possibilities here!
