News: Nina Dobrev Returns for ‘Vampire Diaries’ Series Finale


“I know it’s Thursday, but this is not a TBT. #BackOnSet #TVDForever”.

The beloved Nina Dobrev announced her return to the hit TV series Vampire Diaries, through an Instagram post with the above caption last week.

Said Instagram post was a photo of the series finale script and the episode is titled ‘I Was Feeling Epic’.

It was reported on MTV News that Dobrev left the TV series at the end of its sixth season, to pursue other projects. She told MTV in 2015 that she didn’t want to “be identified only by this one thing”.

With Dobrev’s announcement, fans can rest assured that their favourite vampire Elena Gilbert will return to Mystic Falls.

The series finale will be aired on Friday, March 10 at 8am. ET. on the CW network.
