In announcing that the eighth season would be the last, Plec said to the Comic-Con crowd, “It’s bittersweet and emotional and we’re all going to be crying in about five minutes but we wanted to be the ones to tell you guys first because you’ve been with us on this run and it’s been a lovely run”. Finale date for the series is yet to be announced soon. It is said that there will be no filling episode and that every minute of each episode will be eventful.
“Season 8 will be my last”, Kat Graham, who plays Bonnie Bennett, told Us Weekly on April 3. According to the same publication, Malarkey wants a happy ending for his character. Plec has said in previous interviews that she has always planned for her return for the show’s eventual series finale.
He also talked about the next season’s villain, which he calls the “final bad”, saying it’s a “cool way to infuse Mystic Falls with this ultimate evil”.
There have been reports suggesting that Nina Dobrev will return in “The Vampire Diaries” Season 8. “We’ll still dabble in the past, visit memories, that sort of thing”. And when the sun comes up, they should have their final toast, give each other a hug, throw their rings into the sea, and [turn to dust].

“The Vampire Diaries has meant so much to so many fans around the world, and has meant so much to all of us at The CW”, network president Mark Pedowitz said in a release shortly after the news broke at Comic-Con.
Say goodbye to the handsome but risky bloodsucking Salvatore brothers. As Entertainment Weekly said, the expiration date of “The Vampire Diaries” has been set “after eight years, six doppelgängers, two vehicle accidents on Wickery Bridge, and countless witchy hijinks”.

“The greatest honor as a storyteller in a business of television is to be able to make those decisions with your peers and your friends and your fellow storytellers”, Plec said, as her voice started to break.
