Ian Somerhalder Confirms 'Vampire Diaries' Will End After Season Eight

It sounds like The Vampire Diaries officially has an end date in mind.

Star Ian Somerhalder confirmed to the crowd at 2016 WalkerStalkerCon on Sunday (April 10) in Nashville that the upcoming eighth season will be the last.

“We have decided to do one last season to really do the story justice,” Ian said (via @WalkrStalkrCon).

This comes after his co-star Kat Graham confirmed that season eight would be her last.

UPDATE: The CW tells JustJared.com that “no decision has been made” regarding the future of the series.

    He didnt say that S8 would be the last for TVD but that it would be the last for him…if anything they will or should announce that S8 would be the last for the show at Upfronts or something….

    It should’ve ended two seasons ago

  • Clara Viki

    Well it seems at least two of the main cast members would want it to end. Ian has been voicing his dissatisfaction with the writing for a while now so I’m not at all surprised

  • MurphysGal

    Were you there? It does make sense to make S8 the last if one of the remaining leads is leaving…

  • Jo

    It should have endede once the main character aka Elena left…that’s when I stopped watching.

  • Platynum

    Actually..there is a vid on twitter which clarifies what he says…one person at the con asked him to clarify if it was the last season and he said it was going to be the last season for him .If i knew how to post it here I would :)

    That is what He said but the Show has no Way of surviving without Him so everyone is running with the Show ending.
