Julie Plec Talks Kat Graham’s Upcoming Exit From ‘The Vampire Diaries’


Kat Graham announcing her imminent departure from The Vampire Diaries after Season 8 seems to have been a surprise to her bosses.

Julie Plec has finally spoken out about the news about Bonnie Bennett leaving Mystic Falls and what that means going forward.

“I’ll be honest, Kat is thinking further ahead into the future than I even was,” the co-creator told Nerdist. “I was still wrapping my head around what the hell is in store for Season 8 and she’s jumping ahead to Season 9.”

This will likely be a game-changing turn of events should the long-running series progress to Season 9. But in the meantime, the EP is just hoping the creative team can do the witchy character some justice.

“I feel like knowing that she is feeling ready to move on and say goodbye to Bonnie, now it’s my challenge and the writers’ challenge to do right by that,” she added. “We have a year to do it so I’m excited to come up with all the different ways that her character can say goodbye.”
