The Vampire Diaries fans have just a few more weeks before they have to face a tough reality that their show of the past eight seasons will soon be no more.
But at least they’ll have a chance to see Elena Gilbert again.
Nina Dobrev, who starred in the series between 2009 and 2015, will return for one last episode of The Vampire Diaries: its series finale on March 10.
The last time fans saw Elena, her life was tied to Kat Graham’s Bonnie Bennett in a way that as long as Bonnie was alive, Elena would need to sleep. The end of the sixth season dealt with the aftermath as Ian Somerhalder’s Damon Salvatore placed her in a coffin and instructed Tyler Lockwood (Michael Trevino) to keep her hidden away in a Brooklyn warehouse.
It seems, however, Elena has found a way to come back. And it’s something showrunner Julie Plec told The Hollywood Reporter in a statement she was excited about.
