Can 'The Vampire Diaries' Survive Without Nina Dobrev?

Can 'The Vampire Diaries' Survive Without Nina Dobrev?

With The Vampire Diaries losing its leading lady Nina Dobrev at the end of this season, many fans are worried about the future of the show.

But Executive Producer Julie Plec actually approached the topic of losing one of the main trio (Paul Wesley and Ian Somerhalder being the other two) last summer during 2014 San Diego Comic-Con.

“I think the show will go as long as the actors want the show to go,” Julie told E! News. “You know, look, everybody’s under contract. I know that we’ve got plans for season six, we’ve got plans for season seven. I know that our bosses have plans for seasons eight, nine, and 10. I said I want to be part of it as long as I know I could keep telling good stories and as long as the ensemble people that I work with want to be there and are committed and dedicated. So, so far so good, you know. We’ll see how long we can stay, doing it well. We’ll make sure that we don’t start sucking.”

    It’s not like , i like Dorbev or anything, but let’s be honest, this show needs “Elena”, she’s essential to it…

  • Neesh

    I think it will (even though Elena is essential to the show…) BUT I think season 7 will be the last – unless people enjoy it without her and they could pull it off (unlikely)

    It probably won’t. But more importantly, it simply shouldn’t.

    I’m excited for Bamon and Steroline!! Can we have more Dalaric too?

  • eternalozzie

    the writing has been terrible the last 2 years … it should have already ended

  • Erin August

    Elena’s always been my least favorite TVD character. I’m interested to see what the show will become without her. Hopefully Bonnie will get more screentime now.

  • Mike1288

    Good story telling? Is that what she thinks her and her team have been doing the last three seasons? I would hate to see what she thinks bad story telling is.

  • Detti

    It shocked me but I understand her… She want more for herself, her career. I would do the same thing. But Julie is living in denial. What is she thinking anyway? All the actors/actresses are amazing on the show, it’s a great cast but a show whitout a main caracter. That whole stelena and delena fights between the fans was so pointless. Six years for nothing. I thought that one day when the show will be over it gets a fair ending….
    I love this show since the beggining but i have no idea how they going to continue…

    By the way I hope Nina gets an oscar one day because she totally deserves it :)

  • Sasha.K

    Vampire shows are so 2009…. twilight and true blood….

  • Revengefan0101

    I’ve always liked the idea of Stonnie because I like Paul and Kat’s on screen chemistry.

  • Jon M’Shulla

    It seems over. It was a very good show and now it is just OK. Elena is important. I guess that sort of means Nina is too. But, let’s be real, if it fails it will be for many reasons only one of which is Nina leaving.

    Plus it seems over before the announcement.

  • theonlyandoneme

    Clearly, it can’t survive without Elena.
