Ian Somerhalder Clarifies 'The Vampire Diaries' End Date Statements, Says Season 8 Will Be His Last

Ian Somerhalder is clarifying his statements last week that The Vampire Diaries will be ending after eight seasons.

Last week, the 37-year-old actor told reporters, “We have decided to do one last season to really do the story justice.”

Now, Ian has taken to Twitter to explain, saying that it will be his last season.

“Hey all, so… Last weekend I talked to an audience at a Q&A about the end of #TVD and how excited I was to make what I believe – my last year – be as great as possible. Somehow in my infinite wisdom and end-of-season foggy brain, I managed to make it sound like the show was coming to an end. Cut-to the press running stories that the show would be done after Season 8. Thing is, the people who actually make that decision (the CW and WB) haven’t made it yet! So let’s take things one step at a time: Season 7 wrap, vacation, lots of sleep, let the writers get started on Season 8, and then we’ll all see where we go from there. Until then, much love ;),” Ian tweeted.

The 37-year-old Vampire Diaries actor has partnered with WildAid for its “Year of the Elephant” campaign to ensure that more elephants are born this year than are killed by poachers.

Ian recently told CNN that he became passionate about saving elephants when he bonded with one during his trip.

“I was staying in Zimbabwe in the bush at this incredible conservation institute,” Ian said. “Every morning I got to wake up and have my coffee with a young, orphaned elephant named Dojiwae. Both of her parents were killed by poachers unfortunately.”

Ian emphasized that not buying ivory products is one of the best ways to save elephants.
