'Vampire Diaries' EPJulie Plec Releases Statement on Nina Dobrev's Exit & Michael Trevino's Future

Nina Dobrev is saying goodbye to The Vampire Diaries after six years on the show and now Executive Producer Julie Plec is opening up about her surprising exit.

“Saying goodbye to Nina is both bittersweet and beautiful. After six-plus years together, the entire cast and crew of The Vampire Diaries has reached a level of closeness that I don’t think any of us ever expected,” Julie said in a statement. “Nina is excited to spread her wings, get some rest, travel the world and also take it by storm, and we support her a thousand-fold.”

She continued, “We will miss Nina and the four hundred characters she played, but we look forward to the insane and exciting challenge of continuing to tell stories of our Salvatore Brothers and our much-loved and gifted ensemble.”

Julie also opened up about Michael Trevino‘s future on the show. (He has been cast in the ABC pilot Kingmakers.)

Michael has been a beloved member of the Vampire Diaries family since day one. Even though he’s also going to be out in the world exploring new opportunities, we look forward to finding creative ways to make sure he and his character Tyler Lockwood always remain a part of the show.”

WILL YOU STILL WATCH The Vampire Diaries without Nina Dobrev and Michael Trevino?

    the next season will probably be like when Brenda left 90210, except this ensemble does not have a Kelly to pick up the pieces and their Dylan is pushing 40

  • Pamela Renee Keeton

    like Nina, but as long as Ian and Paul stay on the show will still be great and I will be a top fan :)

    Vampire Diaries started to annoy me the same way True Blood did. I started off loving the Sookie character and by the time the show was ending, I really just wanted someone to kill her. I feel the same way with Elena. Nina is a wonderful talent and I wish her well. But I welcome the break frome Elena. Can we now please get some more Bonnie?!

  • AMGR84

    If the storyline are good then I will watch season 7 but if they continue down the steroline romance THEN NO. A BIG FAT NO!! Send Caroline to New Orleans! I’am ok with the salvatore brother SL it works with the sam and dean in supernatural. Bonnie is always a bad ass.

  • Sam Miller

    I don’t dislike Elena as much as you do, but I understand where you’re coming from. Sometimes it can be hard to keep a character that started off so interesting at that level and it doesn’t always work.
    It’ll be interesting though because Bonnie and Caroline will undoubtedly take center stage and we can all sort of see where they will land with the Salvatore brothers and romance. Just crazy to think that I show that started with a main character and her 2 best friends will end up staring the best friends. Don’t get me wrong I love Bonnie and Caroline so I welcome them at center stage, just far from typical.
    My number 1 hope is that they don’t introduce a new character and try to make them a main player right off the bat. I’m still waiting eagerly for them to kill of Enso.

    I will still watch but I think Vampire Diaries will sort of die out without Nina yes the Brothers are awesome but Ellen a is the main chatacter….. I hope she’s not leaving cause of the Ian Nikki BS. It would be awesome if she takes sometime off for herself and then comes back if the show is still alive

  • Rivke

    I’ll actually start watching it again. I love Nina, she is a good actress, and seems to be a lovely human being, but I hate the character Elena, she is pathetic, it killed the show for me. My son, daughter, and I stopped watching it because it was no longer fun and exciting. Maybe now we can have TVD night again.
    Blessing to Nina and Michael as they continue on their life journey.

  • Derren

    Well, I will no longer watch TVD after Neens is gone….not worth it. She was the sunshine in it!

    It was coming since the day you introduced boring, pathetic Delena. Now, pay the price. you lost TRP when you brought Delena, and now you will lose again. Glad to tell you, I stopped watching your show long back and I don’t give a damn about it anymore.

  • Ernesto

    Yes!!! I agree with you 100%. Nina is gorgeous and talented but has become played out on TVD. I would love it if they would expand more on Bonnie and give her more storylines.

  • Julie Vo

    The only good thing is the originals spin off. it’s time for the show to close off. Maybe some of the characters can move over to the other show!

  • Camelia Curechian

    No , Elena is the best character how i see in The Vampire Diaries , and i didn’t will watch TVD without Nina !!!

  • Tammy Sargeant

    Tme to end this show and move some of these characters over to The Originals. *cough* Klaroline *cough* I can totally see Bonnie with Marcel and Cammie with Damon.
