'Vampire Diaries' EP Julie Plec Explains Series Finale Death

The Vampire Diaries will claim – at least – one last victim in its series finale tomorrow night.

It has been confirmed that one of the core characters will die during the final hour.

This likely includes Stefan (Paul Wesley), Dmaon (Ian Somerhalder), Caroline (Candice King), Bonnie (Kat Graham), Matt (Zach Roerig), and Alaric (Matt Davis).

We recently caught up with executive producer Julie Plec about what went into that decision.

“It just sort of felt that when you’re dealing with life and death things – in this case, will Mystic Falls burn? Will it survive? – someone is going to have to be murdered in the fight against the bad guy,” Julie told us. “So there were a lot of discussions about who that should be. And the choice of who it was, was made entirely out of character, bringing a character full circle to its proper conclusion.”

The Vampire Diaries series finale airs Friday, March 10 @ 8PM on The CW.

Ian Somerhalder & Paul Wesley Shoot Down Idea of 'Vampire Diaries' Future Reboot

It sounds like Ian Somerhalder and Paul Wesley are very content with moving on from The Vampire Diaries after eight years.

Both guys shot down the idea of a possible revival at some point.

“I think I’m closing the chapter,” Paul said (via EW).

Ian joked, “In 10 years I’m going to be living probably on a ranch in Wyoming and you’ll never hear from me again.”

“I think it’s good to close this chapter. There’s something beautiful about closure,” Ian continued. “It’s never going to die. We’re going to continue to be able to watch it and I think that’s a really interesting new thing about this modern digital world.”

Paul joked, “It’d be funny if we did a reboot [where] we’re all old as sh-t.”

The Vampire Diaries series finale airs Friday, March 10 @ 8PM on The CW.

Nina Dobrev Returns to 'Vampire Diaries' in First Look Photo!

Nina Dobrev makes her highly-anticipated return to The Vampire Diaries after two years away.

In Mystic Falls time, it’s been about three years that she’s been “sleeping” in a coffin, under a spell that tied her life to Bonnie’s (Kat Graham).

Theoretically, she can’t wake up until Bonnie dies, but now that Kai (Chris Wood) is back on the show – and he’s the one who created the spell – who knows what will happen.

“The nostalgia is insane,” Nina told EW, who has the first look at her return. “I keep getting triggered by moments: a piece of wardrobe, a person’s voice, a crew member’s laugh. It’s like a trip down memory lane, and I have so many beautiful memories of the six years that I spent here. I’m really glad that I got to be a part of it.”

Check out the first look at Nina below! And in case you missed it, watch the first official video teaser for the finale!

The Vampire Diaries series finale airs Friday, March 10 on The CW.

Also pictured below: Nina keeps it casual while picking up some take-out on Wednesday afternoon (February 15) in West Hollywood, Calif.

Nina Dobrev Sends Love to 'The Vampire Diaries' Fans in Touching Letter As Filming Wraps For Good

That’s a wrap on The Vampire Diaries for Nina Dobrev.

The 28-year-old actress just shot her last scene ever and took to Instagram to share a goodbye letter to fans.

“It feels like it was just yesterday that I was saying goodbye,” Nina wrote. “And yet two years have passed and here we are again. This is my true final goodbye, as today I shot my last scene of the Vampire Diaries forever. Coming back for the series finale has been a whirlwind of emotion, nostalgia, love, tears of joy and bittersweet endings. It feels like the beautiful closure we all needed, myself included, and I couldn’t have been happier to come home to be with my TVD set family and friends.”

She continued, “I feel the fans family will also be happy with the show’s conclusion when they tune in to watch the last episode air in a few short weeks. From the bottom of my heart, I send you my biggest thanks for the countless years of implicit dedication, passion, support, and undying love from all the fans that have stuck with us on this truly amazing and beautiful journey.”

“As this last chapter ends, we welcome and look forward to going on to the next adventure and hope that you continue to follow us as our new journeys begin,” Nina wrote. “I grew up on this show and am eternally grateful for all the opportunities it has given me, and so thankful for each and every person who worked on The Vampire Diaries over the last 8 years. We are all pieces of a big puzzle and without every truly amazing cast and crew member, this magical puzzle would not be complete. Thank you for all your hard work, friendship and love. You have touched my heart in ways you will never know.”

Nina signed it, “Katherine, Amara, Tatia, and of course, Elena Gilbert. #TVDforever #FangsForTheMemories”
