Fans of the hit TV series The Vampire Diaries Season 8 will boycott the last nine episodes of the show unless Nina Dobrev reprises her role as Elena or Katherine. Now that the show is on its final stretch to the final episode, many fans are wondering if Dobrev will return to say goodbye to the show’s loyal viewers.
But there have been no updates from the show’s producers regarding her return, and fans are irked by the non-confirmation. A number of tweets actually called on co-TWD fans to stop supporting the show unless they are given a happy ending for Delena (Damon and Elena). Damon is Ian Somerhalder, Dobrev’s ex-boyfriend.
Is Nina’s return to The Vampire Diaries Season 8 still possible?
Dobrev never confirmed nor denied her return to The Vampire Diaries Season 8. In fact, she left a cryptic message about it when asked during the 2016 American Music Awards. She said: “That’s a good question. That’s a very, very good question.”
The actress left the series in 2015 after revealing that she won’t be back for the seventh season. This was done on the heels of her very public breakup from Somerhalder. It is widely believed that her refusal to return to the show was also because of the actor, who is now married.
As for Somerhalder, he said that it would be better if the vampires and witches from the series would just disappear before Elena’s return. He wants for Elena to forget everything that happened and to start living a peaceful life.
Reportedly, Dobrev promised producer Julie Plec that she will come back for the final season to give the show a proper goodbye. It looks like she won’t be able to fulfill that promise, leaving Plec to reason out to fans of the series.

Did Nina diss her former TWD co-stars?
On an Instagram post for her new movie, XXX: Return of Xander Cage, it sounded like Dobrev threw a shade at her former The Vampire Diaries co-stars. She captioned it with: “Now that’s a team I can work with. So excited to share the new poster for @xXxMovie. Xander Cage is back!”
Many fans believe she hinted about not wanting to work with her TWD co-stars. They were a bit hurt that Dobrev would do that because TWD was a big part of her career. This only shows that the actress may not really be ready to make even a cameo on The Vampire Diaries Season 8.
