Fans of The Vampire Diaries were excited when it was teased that Nina Dobrev would appear before the show ended. However, it might not be in Season 8, despite rumors that this could be the last for TVD. Find out why it may be impossible to see Elena Gilbert reunite with Stefan and Damon Salvatore.

Season 8 is not confirmed to be the last for 'The Vampire Diaries'

Even though Ian Somerhalder teased this year would be the last for TVD, he later retracted that statement. However, rumors are still circulating the Internet that Season 8 will be the final for the vampire series. A few months ago, Mark Pedowitz, president of The CW network stated that no decision has been made about whether the show will be canceled or renewed for Season 9.

For fans that were hoping Nina Dobrev would reprise her role as Elena Gilbert, it may not happen this year.

Nina Dobrev too busy for 'The Vampire Diaries'?

2016 is a busy year for the actress. On Instagram, Dobrev shared a photo of her in character for her latest gig, xXx: The Return Of Xander Cage. She also has been busy doing other films and seems to have moved on from television.

How will Nina come back in 'The Vampire Diaries'?

This information has not been confirmed, but there are a few theories. First, Bonnie could die in TVD. As previously reported, Kat Graham has decided to leave the show at the end of Season 8. The way the sleeping curse works is that Nina cannot wake up or Bonnie dies.The second theory is that there is a loophole that allows Elena to return to Damon.

"Delena" fans would love this, but what would it mean for Kat Graham's character?The craziest TVD theory is that Nina will come back to the show not as Elena Gilbert, but as the villain. Now, that would be frightening, but interesting as well.

When will Nina Dobrev return to 'The Vampire Diaries'?

Both executive producer Julie Plec and actress Nina Dobrev confirmed she will return to the show before it goes off the air.

However, that could be Season 8, Season 9, or even later depending on how many more times The CW renews it. If Dobrev is really busy, she will at least make a one-time appearance in the season finale. Until then, fans will just have to make do withIan Somerhalder, Kat Graham, Paul Wesley, Matt Davis, and Candice King.
