Two years after she left the show, Nina Dobrev has announced that she will return for the series finale of The Vampire Diaries.
Though fans are ecstatic with the news of her character’s return, it isn’t a surprise. Co-creator and producer of the show, Julie Plec, has said that Dobrev always planned to return to the show. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly in 2015, Plec said that Dobrev wanted to “see this character to its end at the end of the show.”
After Dobrev announced her return, Plec released a statement saying: “I’m thrilled to bring this show to an end the way we always intended—with Nina back to help us say goodbye.”
Dobrev announced that she would be returning to the show via an Instagram post which she captioned “I know it’s Thursday, but this is not a TBT.”
