The Vampire Diaries - Is Nina Dobrev leaving? [RUMOUR] + Poll

6 Apr 2015

Share on Reddit


Update: 7th April 2015 This has now been confirmed to be true as she has announced her exit.

6th April 2015

Take this with a large pinch of salt, but for the last few days we've been receiving emails from fans linking us to a number of online articles.

Basically some TVD Crew Members have been posting photos with the #hashtag "#ninawewillmissyou". Some of these were then deleted.

Michael Trevino and Nina Dobrev are currently enjoying a weekend at the lake with their castmates and crew members and it appears to be a big farewell party.

Also note that Nina Dobrev has yet to sign her 7th Season contract and has recently purchased a new house in Los Angeles (TVD films in Atlanta)

Here are some of the photos/posts, some of which have been deleted.



Do you think she is leaving?

  1. I don't see the point of keeping the show alive if Nina is leaving :( I don't think she's AWESOME but she's the starting point of the show

  2. Hahahaha! What a tease! Think they are just mislead and what to draw people back in. At least that is what I felt when I read this. Either killing Nina or humanize her would be just a huge move. Don't think the show will go there and wouldn't survive without her.

    ReplyDelete
  3. Nina leaving is like continuing Buffy without Sarah Michelle gellar. Won't happen, show ends if she goes nina.

    ReplyDelete
  4. Oh please delete that article. It's just embarrassing for you.

    ReplyDelete
  5. i dont think its true but if it is ,they should just cancel that show.

    ReplyDelete
  6. I can't see it going on without her! I mean yes those pics do seem interesting but VD without Elena.
    Nina leaving before Paul? Doubt it!

    ReplyDelete
  7. If she does TVD is deader than dead. It's not like in GoT in which you can bid farewell to the main character, here it would crash and burn

    ReplyDelete
  8. Why couldn't they just end the show this season if they know their main won't be a series regular?! Continuing the show without Elena is so absurd. What's the point? Most people will not continue watching, me included. No Nina = no TVD. I just want answers tbh. Thank you for posting this article.

    ReplyDelete
  9. you guys cant be serious... (and btw april 1 passed five days ago...)

    ReplyDelete
  10. I may not be a fan of Elena's these days but I can't imagine the show without her!

    ReplyDelete
  11. Firstly I'd like to say that I don't watch TVD anymore, but I read recaps. I've always loved Nina, but the truth is that Elena is probably the very worst character. Katherine was awesome, and Elena used to be ok, but she has become just the worst. Since season 4 she has no personality trait that would make her loveable. It might be an unpopular opinion, but I seriously think that writing off Elena might be a way to save the show, if it can be saved at all. Also Nina deserves way better than the crap TVD has become. She is far more talented.

    ReplyDelete
  12. We're the news reporters. We didn't take those photos the cast did.


    We're simply reporting the news.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Be awesome if she was but it would be odd to continue without her.

    ReplyDelete
  14. There will be a new 'point' of view with Damon, Stefan, and Enzo's ( crosses fingers ) great great great great niece Sarah on TVD in season seven as the show focuses more on the Salvatore family including mama Lily.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Am I the only one, who doesn't think this would be such a bad thing. Nina is a very talented, and I believe it's time for her to find something bigger, and also the character of Elena has run its course

    ReplyDelete
  16. I get it but come on that rumor is so ridiculous you should not give it credits.

    ReplyDelete
  17. It'd be so fun/ironic if she left and Paul and Ian stayed after so many years of Delena/Stelena fans rooting for those ships to happen. Also i think it is a little shady to leave now because i dont think there would be much closure she could stay for season seven since it will probably be the final season.

    ReplyDelete
  18. We haven't given any credit. Do you know what a question mark ? is ?

    Do you know what [RUMOUR] is?

    Do you know what "take with a pinch of salt" means?

    ReplyDelete
  19. Ratings then completely fall, and the show will be closed. Many people love Elena and protect her from haters and certainly many people love Delena.

    ReplyDelete
  20. It is not that ridiculous since she still has not signed a new contract and it was officially reported a couple months ago that someone didnt want to renew the contract.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Nina is also shifting her stuff from Atlanta to new LA house...I think she will not leave TVD entirely...she may not heavely featured in all the episodes and will come back for final few episodes to close the series.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I think it's partially true: it seems to me that she left the show but she agreed to come back (Nina confirmed to have signed for s7) as a recurring guest to wrap up few storylines, just like Claire Holt did.


    The pics and comments from the crew at the Lake week end seem genuine, so i believe it's a farewell party this year (they often gather at this place) and the fact that Michael is officially leaving makes it logical that they are throwing a party for both for the same reasons.


    Ian and Paul have always been the main attraction and the biggest stars of the show for an audience who is mainly feminine and young. That doesn't mean that Elena wasn't essential to link the two main male characters together, simply now the brothers got over their past war and are closer than ever. That's why i can totally see a season centered on the reconstruction of their family bond (They also have Sarah to link them, if she survives the finale).


    The gossip sites have started this rumor last year around october: apparently Nina wasn't comfortable to have Ian's new girlfriend on set and the tension was strong...

    ReplyDelete
  23. The Salvatore's Lily, DAMON, STEFAN, Lorenzo, & Sarah ( as well as girlfriends Bonnie and Caroline ) and Alaric, Jo, Liv, the twins, and Matt will keep the show going strong.

    ReplyDelete
  24. FIRE THEM!
    LOL. Kidding. I don't watch the show, but I would rather end this season, than starting a new one without the lead actress.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I wouldn't blame her if she wanted to leave Ian's dramatics behind, but I'd have difficulty watching the series without her. I'd still try out of general loyalty but might not enjoy it as much.

    ReplyDelete
  26. You're kidding me? She's the best this season! Her cute smiles and being all laid back and funny are the best.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Charmed had five great seasons after Shannen Doherty as Prue left and Rose McGowan as Paige took over. TVD will survive just fine wihout Nina.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Ratings have already fallen :)

    ReplyDelete
  29. Would be nice. I like her. But the show is running on fumes. The only way to make it great again would be to do a semi-reboot. Wipe out most of the cast, move into different setting, add new charactes/monster types etc. You could bassicaly just take Damon and Stefan show. Bassicaly a spin off "The Salvatores" in anything but the name

    ReplyDelete
  30. Leaving VD while the show is in a semi-bad place won't stop the hate, probably just heat it up.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Qwerty1212 no.26 April 2015 at 15:02

    Yes, I DO think she's leaving. And all in all - I think it's a really good thing. I know half the people here will hate me for this but I really do.

    First of all, Julie has zero idea what to do with Elena these days. She doesn't feel like a main character anymore, not even close, and they are just writing her as progressively more and more annoying/dumb. And hugely irrelevant. Why? Why do we need to do this to the character? Besides there is virtually nowhere to go for delena now - they won't let them take the next step together, but they can't stay the way they are either (this is still TV), all they are doing is going in circles... So at this point it will be a relieve for the story - rest in peace, Elena :(

    Whether this was their intention or not, thanks to character developments in season 6 the show is now for the first time able to survive without Nina... It may sound weird at first but Caroline is the new leading female, Bonnie is pretty strong character now as well... It will even work relationship-wise since the main ship is really steroline now, not delena... And they have invested enough into bamon to be able to turn them into a relationship as well if they will want to...

    Second of all, whatever the situation between Nina and Ian is, they probably aren't extremely happy about playing a couple in love anymore... Both of them are professionals and very fine actors but they are humans as well...



    And last but not least, Nina clearly wants to make a career in movies and you know what? I think she has a good chance and that this may be a great opportunity for her... And I really wish her the best.


    So yes, all in all, it's IMHO for the best...

    ReplyDelete
  32. Brandy Danforth6 April 2015 at 15:05

    I hope she's not leaving.She,Ian,Paul make the show even I like some of the other characters.I don't like Elena as much s4 on but still...

    ReplyDelete
  33. Wouldn't quite compare those 2 things! Charmed was a build on a strong sisterly bond, while VD on a love triangle and love interests. They have to replace her and they mostly do a poor job with new additions.
    It could go either way but with such a shipper pushing viewership it could end in a big mess and the show hitting low low numbers.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Im cackling so loud.There is a literal meltdown in twitter and Insta because of these posts and the person had to either delete them or hide her profile(dont know if that is possible) because she posted these.I think she is leaving because Nina has never really posted so much for VD on her twitter .I think she will die at the end of the season ...either becoming human again or just gone forever.Ratings are already in the tank,so not sure what S7 will look like.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Shows in its 6th season is usually when cast members renegotiate their contracts for the show and the studio. And yes, I do understand that Ian and Nina still find it awkward that they are doing intimate scenes when in real life, they've since broken up.

    With that said, I won't believe it until it's official. And despite being an ensemble show, the core three (Ian, Nina and Paul) are too central for the series so it would be a big mistake for any of those three to leave fans hanging just as the show is about to enter its swan song (which Season 7 will no doubt will be).

    Nina owes it to TVD fans who kept watching the show for all these years that she'll ride this out til the very end. I know everyone's aching to leave TVD but the cast and the crew have to reach a consensus here and Julie Plec, more than anyone, knows that she can't keep everyone hanging.


    Announce the show's next season as its last, probably give Nina the same deal as fellow regulars Kat Graham et al who don't appear in all the episodes per season and everyone's happy.


    :D

    ReplyDelete
  36. Nina can't leave the show because she is the leading women of Vampire diaries.. Julie Plec have prefect ending and I know it about Elena.

    ReplyDelete
  37. It wasn't the same when Brenda (also played by Shannen) left BH90210 after only 4 out of the show's 10 seasons. The void she left was felt throughout the show's entire decade run on the air.

    ReplyDelete
  38. will be even worse

    ReplyDelete
  39. Nina Dobrev is the star of this show and without her. the how is nothing and no is going to watch it.

    ReplyDelete
  40. You can hide your profile by making your account private.

    ReplyDelete
  41. People can buy a house somewhere else where the show doesn't film. It could easily be a hiatus home for her. Many actors do it, so I don't think that's a sign of someone leaving.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Agreed. I'm just an occasional viewer, but when I think of The Vampire Diaries, I think it's her show. It will lose a lot of the casual fans.

    ReplyDelete
  43. The only thing to put this rumor to bed.... Nina or Julie Plec need to said something.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Thanks.I think that is what someone did state.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Lol, joshua Jackson and Katie Holmes dated IRL when they were on Dawson's creek and when they break up, they still got along and even played lovers on screen. Neither josh nor Katie had to leave because of it. So I don't think Nina will leave just because of Ian.

    ReplyDelete
  46. I agree. I just don't see her leaving, cause of the fans cause of everything. .

    I know she probably wants to go to the big screen but she'll can wait a year more. Turning her human and compel her away and move on with the show .

    ReplyDelete
  47. It's definitely a possibility that they're just continuing on without her. One Tree Hill attempted the same thing after Chad Michael Murray and Hilarie Burton left the show and that went on for seasons after. That's probably why they reintroduced the cure, so Elena will take it and probably leave Mystic Falls.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Michael Murray and Hilarie Burton (Lucas and Peyton are together)

    ReplyDelete
  49. Qwerty1212 no.26 April 2015 at 15:19

    Who said it's JUST because of that? It was mentioned bazillion times that Nina wants to do movies, big time, without having to wait, that is probably the main reason. Still I can't imagine that Julie's inability to give Elena decent story or Ian's constant presence aren't other reasons that just made her want to leave that much more...

    ReplyDelete
  50. She can make calls home to Mystic Falls ( filmed in LA ) to share with Bonnie, Caroline, Alaric and Stefan how her classes are going at her new medical university.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Elena endgame is one of the two brother...

    ReplyDelete
  52. No one gives anything any credit. the article was posted as a question. Ther is the wor RUMOUR in it. And the first sentence contains the words TAKE THIS WITH A LARGE PINCH OF SALT: What is so hard to get about that?

    And if you ask me liking your own posts is pretty pathetic.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Giorgio Corrado6 April 2015 at 15:23

    I think TVD may still have one or two more seasons left but I would not be surprised with rumors of shows actors looking around for their next acting jobs post-TVD.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Let Elena go and begin to embrace Sarah Salvatore as the shows new 'heroine'.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Qwerty1212 no.26 April 2015 at 15:26

    And why not Caroline and Bonnie? :) Imho Caroline is already the leading lady for all practical purposes and she is very good in it.

    ReplyDelete
  56. I quit watching after they killed Katharine.I recently broke down and bought season 5 on DVD so i will eventully see the remaining season 5 episodes after she was killed.But,i don't blame Nina.Just because elena is written horrable doesn't mean she is bad actress.She was great as Katharine.The fact some prefered nina as Katharine over her as elena says everything about the writing.Julie Plec has been killing both VD and Originals.Claire Holt's depture and writing made me not bother at all with season 2 of originals.And hearing about originals In new bodies doesn't intrest me in coming back.


    Nina leaving would further hurt show.It has to be awkword for her to have to keep doing romantic scenes with Ian Somerhalder after they broke up.Ratings have declines.The flash has replaced it as highest rated show on CW.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Elena will take the cure and become human, Damon will come to realize he loves Bonnie and he and Elena will break up, Elena will decide she needs a fresh start so she moves to where Jeremy is attending school and enrolls in their medical classes there.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Have no fear they will be the female leads as well as Damon and Stefan's girlfriends well Sarah will be the shows new teen that needs saving and protecting .

    ReplyDelete
  59. That is your opinion. I personal would love it and it would give the show a whole new life without Elena in it.

    ReplyDelete
  60. She may be leaving, but I don't think it's good decision. Her acting skills vanished long time ago and right now the only genre I can picture her in are stupid romantic comedies, but who knows, maybe she likes them.

    ReplyDelete
  61. thanks for the chart. easy to analyse

    ReplyDelete
  62. You can see these charts for any shows in the ratings database.

    ReplyDelete
  63. Neither Caroline nor Bonnie have what it takes to make this story - it's linking arc has always been Elena and her fate. Any other lead and it's just... pointless adventures. May still be entertaining but any depth the show had would be lost.

    ReplyDelete
  64. i will take that any time "the salvatores"

    ReplyDelete
  65. She's pleasant but without any meaning. I would watch Candice read a phone book so I'd definitely continue watching if she's the new lead, but the story overall would flop for me without Elena.

    ReplyDelete
  66. Charmed kept going after Prue died and so will VD when Elena leaves for a new medical university..

    ReplyDelete
  67. What is there to be explored in that? They've made up, are bros again - the only possible continuation is ala Supernatural.

    ReplyDelete
  68. If she leaves i'm done with the series!

    ReplyDelete
  69. Brandy Danforth6 April 2015 at 15:50

    On the show yes.But not in real lfe.She was married,divorced & had a baby with Jeffrey Dean Mirgan.Chadcheated on Sophia Busch with extra Kenzie but they broke up years after he & Sophia did.Hes now married and having a baby with someone,

    ReplyDelete
  70. Qwerty1212 no.26 April 2015 at 15:51

    That actually doesn't sound bad at all :) Well, I don't like Sarah yet but I can see how that could work, especially with another Salvatore aka Lily joining the team.

    ReplyDelete
  71. Brandy Danforth6 April 2015 at 15:52

    It's possible.But they shouldn't do it.Majority of OTH fans hated Hilarie & Chad leaving ,said the show should end then,disliked the new characters,disliked the last few seasons.OTH got away with it because it's about a group of people.But VD is mainly about Elena,Stefan,Damon.

    ReplyDelete
  72. Brandy Danforth6 April 2015 at 15:54

    SPN replaced it as the highest rated show on CW last season, so did Arrow in demo.Even in Arrows first season,it was more watched /viewed than VD in total viewers.

    ReplyDelete
  73. Different circumstances. Different scenarios.

    It may have worked for Charmed but it did not for many others. Even when Charmed was able to last long after Prue died, it still did not make sense for the character to not make her presence felt the same way Penelope and Patty were during those remaining years.

    ReplyDelete
  74. TVD went downhill after S3 but I can't see the show working without Elena. Whether you like her or hate her she is the lead. Paul said the cast has changing next season so maybe Tyler, Matt and Bonnie are the ones leaving the show and not Elena.
    Maybe Nina bought a house in LA because next season will be the last (as it should be).

    ReplyDelete

    Two worst characters of TVD are leaving the show-Good riddance!Please let this news be true & not just a petty rumor!

    ReplyDelete
  76. That 1st pic is pretty confirmatory that nina is leaving.

    ReplyDelete
  77. Qwerty1212 no.26 April 2015 at 16:00

    Bonnie leaving, after they just acknowledged her as more than just a plot device and finally let Kat show what a great actress she is? I really can't see that happening... Tyler and Matt yes, especially Tyler - he has no purpose at all, but never Bonnie...

    ReplyDelete
  78. Agreed, agreed. I stopped watching 90210 and Charmed after Shannen left since she played my favorite character on both shows. Once you take one of the main characters out of the dynamic everything shifts and it stops feeling like the original concept. I guess if Nina wants out though they don't really have much of a choice. I'm sure she wouldn't want them to cancel the show just because she's leaving, it wouldn't be fair to the cast and crew.

    ReplyDelete
  79. Stefan hardly has any storylines,it's mainly about Damon,Caroline & bonnie now!

    ReplyDelete
  80. Qwerty1212 no.26 April 2015 at 16:01

    And I felt like such a cynical creature for being very happy about it :D Ah, never change, Joy :)

  81. Marlene Rådman6 April 2015 at 16:02

    Ooh,this would be interesting if it is true.

    ReplyDelete
  82. I'm still hoping the show changes location next season with Damon and Stefan moving to Californian to protect Sarah at Duke university from great uncle Lorenzo with Bonnie ( Sarah's cousin as well as the brother's ), Caroline, and mother Lily in tow. Alaric would end up getting a teaching position at Duke so Jo, Liv, and the twins would move their too.

    ReplyDelete
  83. Christina Sherwood6 April 2015 at 16:03

    I haven't liked the character since 4th season & as for Nina, I get the impression that she thinks a bit too much of herself. I'll be glad to see her gone.

    ReplyDelete
  84. Brandy Danforth6 April 2015 at 16:04

    Quite a lot of fans hated Rose & Paige & Shennen leaving though despite it lasting for a long time after Shsnnens departure.

    ReplyDelete
  85. I've been telling everyone Nina is a great actress.The way she portrayed Amara,Katherine & tatia is burning proof of that.That being said,This character Elena has nothing more to offer anymore.She's been gradually written out of the show ever since Mid-season of season 6.As for tyler,he should've died back in season 4,so time for him to go.This douchy jerk thing isn't working anymore,time to move on!

    ReplyDelete
  86. Julie really LOVES matt,she even said it aloud that she would never kill Matt on this show,he can move out of Mystic falls sometime next season but not right away.No way Bonnie leaves now.

    ReplyDelete
  87. Qwerty1212 no.26 April 2015 at 16:09

    Exactly, Nina deserves better and so does the story (Julie now has zero idea what to do with Elena or delena anyway).

    ReplyDelete
  88. I thought Episode 19 synopsis made it pretty clear Lily is Enzo's maker.I seriously hope it's something more!

    ReplyDelete
  89. Knowing what i know now,Looks like Damon & the team will finally give Elena that cure & compel her to forget everything that has happened ever since she came to this ton after her parent's death & send her packing to someplace else far away from Mystic Falls.
    Tyler will realize there's nothing here anymore tying him to Mystic falls.He will move out too in hope for a better future & career down the line.

    ReplyDelete
  90. Qwerty1212 no.26 April 2015 at 16:15

    I keep thinking that the reason why Enzo hates Stefan is that he became something of a surrogate son to Lily. And he kept hearing about the great Stefan and Damon, always knowing that Lily cared about them more than about him. He stopped hating Damon because of what has happened with the Augustine, but he never stopped being jealous about Stefan... If anything, he might envy him more because Damon is Stefan's real brother, while he is just something like a brother to Enzo...

    ReplyDelete
  91. What is not to like ?

    ReplyDelete
  92. and there were fans who liked paige over pru.Even before pru died charmed had morphed into Phoebe as main character and even Piper was becoming more doment in storylines.Piper's romance storylines were more ongoing than any of pru's after Andy was killed off in season 1 finale.

    ReplyDelete
  93. All the contracts expired after S6 so If I was Kat (Bonnie) I would leave this show asap. I love Kat but I wouldn't blame her if she wanted to leave.

    ReplyDelete
  94. I was thinking along that line for a long time now.Either way,mere loneliness cannot be the explanation of Enzo's intense hatred & jealousy,it HAS to be something more!

    ReplyDelete
  95. It never made sense for grams and patty's ghosts consently popping up but never Pru.


    Elena leaving VD is more like if charmed had lost alyssa Milano or Holly Marie Combs.

    ReplyDelete
  96. I'm somewhat on the fence, sure it can continue, but sometimes it always has a negative effect on shows. Like Shannen leaving Charmed or David leaving X-Files. But we shall see, it may work, or it may not.

    ReplyDelete
  97. Nothing in Kat's behavior or action have indicated she's ready to move on.I hope she stays,i love her!

    ReplyDelete
  98. Do you think Sara will join full time next season?

    ReplyDelete
  99. Charmed could work with pru.X-files couldn't without Mulder.Rating for x-files collopsed with season 9 once people knew unlike season 8 mulder wouldn't be making an appearance.

    ReplyDelete
  100. On this i agree,it back backfire or it may bring back some of the old audiences who left after seeing this romantic delena melodrama in season 5!

    ReplyDelete
  101. Damon would never let Elena go. Stefan maybe.
    The only way to let her go, is kill her.

    ReplyDelete
  102. Brandy Danforth6 April 2015 at 16:22

    I wouldn't be suprised-Julie Plec said they'd find a way to continue the show even without one or more if Paul,Ian,Nina.Paul said the cast may/would change next season.Majority of fans hate her character.She wants to do movies.I hope it's not true.

    ReplyDelete
  103. Qwerty1212 no.26 April 2015 at 16:23

    Definitely. Enzo isn't just nuts... And hopefully they wil be able to explain it in a way that justifies his sometimes wonky storyline.


    Is it weird that all of this just made me seriously hyped about the finale? Because TVD realistically has only one season left, one way or another, but if they can make it brave and fresh again then YES, that's how I want them to go like, with a bang :)

    ReplyDelete
  104. Really whats the point in continuing the series just one more year after Nina may leave, if season 7 could be the final season. They may as well have ideas to extended it beyond 7, just there's no point in making season 7 the final season without Elena in it.


    However it could just end up like X-Files in season 9, when Mulder isn't it, until the final episode. I know fans hate that season, and as a final season you may aswell try hard to lock in your lead actress if season 7 is the last one, just stick it out one more year, so It tells me they have plans to go beyond 7 maybe.

    ReplyDelete
  105. No my friend.He's not that selfish anymore.In fact,if he was the same Damon of Season 1/season 2,he would've destroyed the Cure on the spot.The fact he's struggling now means he have changed,as much as he would like to deny it.

    ReplyDelete
  106. Then again, it's the triangle melodrama that started from pilot that got those people hooked on the show in the first place. The show would definitely feel in complete without Elena, whether fans love her or hate her.

    ReplyDelete
  107. Same here,this season finale will now have some serious stakes attached to it.I cannot wait to see how they pull this off!!

    ReplyDelete
  108. Qwerty1212 no.26 April 2015 at 16:26

    So you are saying that you would rather end after this season, with nobody's storyline finished, than getting a final season without Elena that ties all the other storylines? Really?

    ReplyDelete
  109. Yes,they have dropped many hints throughout this season that one of the main would be leaving.

    ReplyDelete
  110. Given Plec's history with past shows such as Kyle XY and Dawson's Creek, I don't think she'll let one-third of her show's central triumvirate leave the show that easily.

    ReplyDelete
  111. not her fault writing is so bad.Nina was always great as Katharine.In season 5 episodes she was still better as Katharine than as Elena.

    ReplyDelete
  112. Anybody who kept watching after the Stelena melodrama of seasons 1&2 should've known what they were in for.


    It won't bring back any audiences, that's for sure.

  113. Nina's contract expired,she maybe wants to move on.Juile cannot do anything about that,now can she?

    Yes he is.Rember his anger/depression that Elena erased her memories of him/them & his fight to win her back.Im not a Delena fan but Damon wouldn't let her go.Remember Damon was worried that Elena wouldn't be with him if she weren't a Vampire?She takes the cure,no Delena.

    ReplyDelete
  116. No not at all. I'll watch it without her in it, seeing as I hate Elena.

    I'm just talking from a production/writer point of view, is that they probably want the show to go more than 7 seasons, as if Julie Plec told Nina she wants the show to end after season 7, she could of convinced her to stay one more year, if that was the case.

    Clearly Julie Plec has ideas for more seasons, and Nina doesn't want to stay for that long.

  117. TVD got renewed officially means they(the creatives & the studio/network executives)knew very well who would leave & mutually agreed upon it.We just got a hint of what's coming.

    Really good idea. And agreed, I thought that Lily is the one who will get the cure but after this it probably really is Elena. After all it's such an obvious choice that it's almost unexpected :) And they DID give us delena sitting on a couch and having the talk as promo photos for two episodes in a row, lol...

    ReplyDelete
  119. Hes changed a little as it seems having spent time with Bonnie did that to him but he hasnt changed to the effect that he stated "What if I dont want it for her now '(paraphrased) and he also stated that he wanted her happy but only with him .He is still selfish when it comes to her.

    ReplyDelete
  120. Lol, no.

    Enzo is the one who should be killed off.

    ReplyDelete
  121. Oh,i'm sure Tyler is leaving too,one way or the other!

    ReplyDelete
  122. I agree.I loved her as katharine.The problem has been how elena is written.Ninais great when they give her something to work with.Back in season 2 i said i could enver forgive them if they killed katharine and back then show was still good.


    Tyler should have been gone a longtime ago.

    Yes, but this was a talk about one of the truly main characters, i.e. Elena, Damon and Stefan.

  124. seems legit, probably done as series regular after this season

  125. Brandy Danforth6 April 2015 at 16:31

    Maybe.Im mean, his pilot may not get picked up so hell stick around.Or maybe hell be able to do both shows.Who knows?

    ReplyDelete
  126. Who knows?Maybe he'll surprise us all in the finale with his decision.That being said,who do you think will get to know about the cure next?

    ReplyDelete
  127. Qwerty1212 no.26 April 2015 at 16:32

    She can ask really nicely, that's about it...

    ReplyDelete
  128. Most contracts on TV shows expire during the summer so there is still probably some negotiation we don't now about.


    And again, she's too embedded as one of the show's three core characters for her to just leave the show, especially if the following season is without a doubt going to be the last one.

    If she wants to move on, she could work things out with the studio. Have a similar deal with Kat, Michael, Zach and Candice so she would have more time off like them while still being billed as a regular.

    ReplyDelete
  129. I can see her guest starring in best case scenario.Would that be weird?

    ReplyDelete
  130. Well, Julie Plec is the showrunner, she is predictable - she is doing everything easy. So your theory is most likely.

    ReplyDelete
  131. Exactly.We don't know what's happening here but if someone makes up his/her mind about leaving,you really don't have a choice.It sucks but it's the sad truth!

    ReplyDelete
  132. A special guest star status similar to Heather Locklear's in Melrose Place would be ideal.

    ReplyDelete
  133. Qwerty1212 no.26 April 2015 at 16:35

    True, but probably even somebody like Julie can't think that getting more than one season in these circumstances is very probable. I mean - her and Caroline Dries are really confident but counting on this would be borderline insane...

    ReplyDelete
  134. I actually thought she'd leave last year as well, she seemed to be pretty much peed with the show herself. Not like Paul Wesley who's actively trash-talking TVD (and I love him for that) but on a more subtle level.

    I'd feel pretty sad to see her leave (as well as Michael Trevino but given that he's cast in some new pilot we can be pretty sure that he's leaving as well) however the show really didn't give her much material but obsessing over Damon. Her character was degraded from a well written female lead to a males dog on a leash. Wich was the biggest step back in feminism this show did since it had Jenna make Jeremy a sandwich.

    TVD is Ians show these days anyways, fans don't seem to care about anything else but their eyecandy

    I would totally vote for Nina to show up on TO from time to time though. I really liked Tatia and I don't think that fans are still over the way Katherine/Elijah ended

    That said: it's a rumor, one I can easily believe though

    ReplyDelete
  135. I always thought it would be Elena.There was too much foreshadowing in the script recently and JP had stated that when Elena became a vampire that that would be the middle of her journey.There is a theory floating around that there is another cure in 1903?This cure will go to someone else.I had the theory that they would give it to Stefan as well because he always wanted that type of life ,Damon didnt...but who knows as there are so many rewrites maybe they will twist that around and say that Damon now wants the human life...lol

    ReplyDelete
  136. And the ratings are no longer there to support further seasons. Even Kevin Williamson seem to be realistic about Dawson's Creek's chances during its last season.

    ReplyDelete
  137. Castiel(SPN) got this status for 2 seasons before he became a series regular again this season.

    ReplyDelete
  138. I disagree. Elena is easily one of the least liked characters on the show. In fact, most of the stories that have taken place this season would be the exact same without her.


    If she does leave, I think the show will do just fine. Delena shippers will flip out, but the show isn't comprised only of them.


    I'll miss Nina because I actually think she's a great person, but Elena is no longer necessary to the story. Everything she does these days revolves around Damon.

    ReplyDelete
  139. Maybe this will save the show. Everybody will be excited to see how it is going to run without her and if they will do it well.


    but
    I don't get why would she leave, when this is most likely the last season?


    i think, that TVD will have full season seven and it will be lower and lower.
    Then they will do 8th season with 10 episodes.

    ReplyDelete
  140. He really appears hardly in TVD,so managing both really shouldn't be a problem,truth be told.

  141. We just have to wait and see if it's going to be official.

  143. Qwerty1212 no.26 April 2015 at 16:41

    Precisely. It's funny how Julie and Caroline keep patting each other on shoulders but they don't have much to support their believes, the ratings are down, actors aren't that happy either... The show IS better, tremendously so, I give them that, but it seems like they have already done too much damage to it...

    ReplyDelete
  144. Exactly. Its really just luck, and hoping for the best. Ratings are not their to support them, unlike Charmed the show survived without Prue, because the ratings were so high back in the day of the early 2000's.

    ReplyDelete
  145. Well,only a month now.

    ReplyDelete
  146. Elena was never my reason for watching TVD (if anything, she was always among the low points of it for me) so I'll definitely keep watching if she departs.

    ReplyDelete
  147. Not a fan of trash talking your own show (not sure Paul does). If actors don't like a show they work on cool, but it employs them and they should have some loyalty. Mac are you advocating for shippers?

    ReplyDelete
  148. They are really delusional.

    ReplyDelete
  149. Cool. I like Nina, I think she's great. But I hate Elena at this point.

    ReplyDelete
  150. Agreed, the damage was done during season 4 and 5. I felt the show started it by their first creative decision to resurrect Jeremy and undo Elena's whole journey of grief, then season 5 it got worse, and the fans left after Katherine died, when the ratings never recovered above 2 million viewers ever again.

    ReplyDelete
  151. I agree with you: i'm confused by the reactions to this news. As if Elena is the only character on the show and there isn't others storylines which are largely more interesting to watch and in all cases deserve also a conclusion.
    The Salvatore brothers are the heart of the show, and they're still there. I know that the show was originally presented as a romance show based on a triangle, but it was 6 years ago. Things change and if this rumor is true, it could be a way to rectify few mistakes that the writers did during s4 and s5 by focusing too much on the romance part.


    Also few people have already gave examples of shows where leads have left without stopping the rest of the cast to continue for few seasons: x-files for sure, but also on CW one tree hill and the most famous smallville (which had 3 lead actors like TVD with one female and two males and where the lead female left way before the end of the show and has been replaced without causing a problem of continuity).


    Past the 1st surprise, i see nothing dramatic here.

    ReplyDelete
  152. It should be peeved.You wrote Peed!LOL!

    ReplyDelete
  153. Not really.They have been quoted as saying that they do not check for the ratings.Nonsensical as it seems to us..thats what they are saying.

    ReplyDelete
  154. This would almost certainly be the show's death. They'd lose the majority of their viewers, for starters; a large portion of the fandom is only watching for their ships now, since the quality of the show has gone down, and without Elena, the show loses a ton of Stelena and Delena fans, as well as probably a lot of Klaroline fans holding out hope. And regardless of Elena's unpopularity as a character, she's the focal point of the show. She's what this entire show has really been about, she's the character that ties them all together. Losing that kind of character is disastrous for most shows that attempt it. If Nina leaves, they should really just cancel before they can see the ratings tank.

    ReplyDelete
  155. This chart is....really really sad

    ReplyDelete
  156. The Whole story of the show is about Elena and her diary. i think if stefan and or damon left it would be ok ...i wouldn't like it. but if they get rid of Elana i dont see the reason of having the show

    ReplyDelete
  157. Qwerty1212 no.26 April 2015 at 16:46

    And delena's vicious breakup/makeup circle imho didn't help either..

    ReplyDelete
  158. Agreed 100%.It may have been marketed as a romantic triangle teen drama,but at heart it always was about the two brother's journey!

    ReplyDelete
  159. Killing Katherine for good was a very BAD idea and they've had many!

    ReplyDelete
  160. Qwerty1212 no.26 April 2015 at 16:48

    I don't have the link but somebody here metioned that Caroline Dries recently tweeted that she's never gonna leave because she's too much of a great writer and writes the best delena scenes. What a humble, realistic way to see herself, lol...

    ReplyDelete
  161. That too. I can see why they are heading back to the Elena be cured, seeing how many complain how bad she turned once she became a vampire.

    Seems likely, Elena is going to leave and join Jeremy wherever he is. Makes sense.

    ReplyDelete
  162. Great writing?!?Vince Gilligan should pay her a visit!LOL!

    ReplyDelete
  163. But why won't they check it?It doesn't make any sense!

    ReplyDelete
  164. And find out he's not there drawing portrait at all!Alaric better watch out.LOL!

    ReplyDelete
  165. Yup...that her.The shippers heap tons of praise on her and tell her of her great writing ..blah blah blah..yet viewers are tuning out in droves.Go figure.

    ReplyDelete
  166. Agreed.

    I'm upset she isn't going to appear in season 6 at all even in a flashback. If Nina is leaving, it sucks it means we wont see Katherine again one last time in season 6, even one episode or a flashback.

    ReplyDelete
  167. The opening line of the series was-Stefan's voiceover-This is my story.Not elena's.

    ReplyDelete
  168. VD suffered once Kevin williamson become producer by credit only after first half fo season 3.Second half of season 3 looks great now compared to seasons 4 and 5.Some fans didn't like killing off anna but resurrecting jeremy and whole stuff with bonnie makes death ilrelvent on VD.and then they did their dumbest thing.killing off Katharine.I am sure i am not only one who left because of that.There was reason they keep bringing katharine back over first 4 seasons.Elena beocming vampire should have been a final season devolpment.

    ReplyDelete
  169. he's done it quite a lot actually. started at season 4 about how his character is pointless and actually even complained openly about the writing.


    Not sure how it's a bad thing, TVD has serious flaws. Blindly ignoring that and being glad that it cuts your paychecks is not really productive. He seems to care enough about this show to stay and direct some episodes to improve the show, so I'm actually on his side there.


    Every actor that actively tries to add to the show on a creative basis is on my good side (Wesley/Somerhalder directing, Amell doing GA voices outside of Arrow, Barrowman pushing to get to write a Merlyn comic)




    Not really, it was just left open ended. Also, we all know how TO will end shipping wise, so there's not much one can do. But anything to get back Katherine.




    (if they didn't give closure to Olicity I would be pissed as well)

    ReplyDelete
  170. Ya,that's one side-effect of her leaving full time!

    ReplyDelete
  171. We got a hint from Julie with the interview she made not too long ago basically telling us that the show is getting near to where she and Kevin envision for it to end.

    ReplyDelete
  172. haha lol too true.

    With all these departures, still Vicki and Jenna remain the only main characters who remain dead. Jeremy and Alaric resurrected, and Elena may just leave, and Tyler too. They got to kill off Tyler or Elena, so somebody from the main cast dies since Jenna for good. lol

    ReplyDelete
  173. Qwerty1212 no.26 April 2015 at 16:54

    ReplyDelete
  174. They didn't know what to do with her character anymore once she became a vampire.It was so badly portrayed!

    ReplyDelete
  175. Im guessing because some folks have complained abt the writing and how some characters are being ignored for Delena.Hey..I remember watching the pilot and hearing "this is my story"..yet PW is now seen as an "I dont know how to write for this character" ..lets put him in a relationship and then destroy that relationship.I saw that JP tweeted after the last episode that the viewers were maniacs but that is how they survived for so long .This was after Kai was "killed" and the viewers started tweet Poor Kai.

    ReplyDelete
  176. I vote for Tyler.God,he's useless!

    ReplyDelete
  177. Yeah she's leaving. Elena has been directionless this season and it's clear Nina wants to go and do movies.

    ReplyDelete
  178. i would much much rather have her on the show. It's not like the ratings are amazing any more, they should make season 7 the final season and use that as a bargaining chip like "nina you only have to do it one more year!" lol

    ReplyDelete
  179. I would have liked to see how Nina would have looked with Jared Padalecki on Supernatural! But if she is leaving the CW, there is no chance of that happening.

    ReplyDelete
  180. I saw that interview too.Who knew this is what they had in mind?

    ReplyDelete
  181. True but stefan has been neglected.writers seem to care more about damon.

    ReplyDelete
  182. To be fair for TVD, they were pretty steady for much of seasons 2-5a until last year when the spring episodes started rolling and the ratings started to slide down.

    ReplyDelete
  183. I saw those tweets too.I was like-WTF?!?

    ReplyDelete
  184. nope, it's what I ment. Peed aka. a nicer way of saying that someone is pissed.

  185. Point taken.LOL!

    ReplyDelete
  186. No, the Salvatore bros only exist in the MF universe because of Elena. it;s her story, for many viewers, so I for one would not be pleased to have her just shipped off, without any relevance at all.

    I actually support Nina leaving, because I believe she can do a lot better than this pointless drama, but I'd like to see the finale of Elena, not of whiny ass Damon.

    ReplyDelete
  187. Agreed, I felt it was early into the show's run, 3 seasons in. I was thinking she would turn during graduation or around then at least.

    Also I hated Julie Plec's decision to not introduce anything new like a succubus or a demon etc. the show could of redeemed itself if they introduced something new, why continue to recycle witches, vampires, hybrids and werewolfs over and over and over. If they did new things, then the show has something new to explore.

    ReplyDelete
  188. And yet we see the beautiful drop that equals TVDs creativity peak

    ReplyDelete
  189. I like Tyler, about the only TVD character I still enjoyed


    If we get rid of Elena, Damon, Enzo and Caroline I'd probably cheer out loud and start watching again

    ReplyDelete
  190. I think even they didn't have a clue about the popularity contrast between the two brothers!

    ReplyDelete
  191. He hasn't got anything left in him. Even if he and Matt are police in training, only one of them needs to be one.

    ReplyDelete
  192. I would love to see the focus shift to Damon and Stefan. Both are still great characters-I never got the appeal of Elena tbh. She was never interesting to me, she just became more tolerable after turning into a vampire (unpopular opinion) but I still hate her. But let's not forget the shippers...The show simply does not last without them...If Elena leaves, Delena and Stelena fans leave with her. Most non-shippers have quitted watching this show long ago and the show won't survive another big dip in ratings with the shippers leaving too...I don't see the show surviving without Nina even though I believe an Elena-less TVD will be a good TVD.

    ReplyDelete
  193. If they're on the home stretch then they should as much as possible keep the central figures intact for the last run unless they've always mapped out in their story biible for a central character such as Elena to leave the canvas before the final story can be told after seasons of basically being front-and-center in the show's most grueling love-triangle story ever.

    ReplyDelete
  194. Pushing it to be better is fine. But you don't shit on your employers. God I miss Katherine.

    ReplyDelete
  195. Either way,Season 8 would be it's last so ratings won't matter.At least we will get an good final season out of it.

    ReplyDelete
  196. the writers have forgotten show was suspose to be about love triangle.Since season 4 they totally forget that and have been all about Delena.

    ReplyDelete
  197. as someone else said, Damon fans have taken over the show. However you're right this IS Stefans story and should end with Stefan saying "This was my story" before he finally stakes his annoying brother

    ReplyDelete
  198. So was OTH but it didn't stayed that way for the most part. SPN of course is an exception.

    ReplyDelete
  199. well yeah, shippers took control over this show
