Nina Dobrev Finally Confirms ‘The Vampire Diaries’ Season 8 Return


It’s official! If you’ve been holding your breath waiting, you can exhale now, because Nina Dobrev is officially returning to The Vampire Diaries Season 8.

And we even know when.

Nina took to Instagram January 26 to break the earth-shattering news.

I know it's Thursday, but this is not a TBT. #BackOnSet #TVDForever

“I know it's Thursday, but this is not a TBT. #BackOnSet #TVDForever,” she captioned the photo.

Julie Plec had been teasing us with a “will she, won’t she” on Nina coming back to Mystic Falls, and now we hear it straight from Elena Gilbert herself.

What’s more, is she gives us even more clues in the picture.

Nina shares a photo of her The Vampire Diaries script for Season 8, Episode 16.

Yes, that’s the series finale. Nina will definitely be in the final episode ever.

Moreover, we know the finale is titled “I Was Feeling Epic.”

Hmm, when did we hear that quote before? Way back in Season 1, Episode 8 when we first meet Lexi, Damon and Stefan’s old-school BFF.


Lexi is singing praises about Stefan to Elena, and when Stefan overhears he thanks Lexi.

“You weren’t supposed to be listening. I was feeling epic, whatever,” she says.

What we still have to learn, however, is whether Nina will be back as Elena, as Katherine, or both. Oh, and what does this mean for Bonnie’s life?

We’re stoked Nina is officially coming back, and now we’re even more excited for the bittersweet finale.

The Vampire Diaries Season 8 airs Fridays at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
