Nina Dobrev may be leaving The Vampire Diaries after season six. The International Business Times reports that she is fed up of dealing with her ex-boyfriend Ian Somerhalder and his new girlfriend, Nikki Reed. It is uncomfortable on set, and she wants to get out of the way.
It has already previously been reported by many that The Vampire Diaries may come to an end after season six. Contracts are up for all the main characters, and Somerhalder previously hinted that it may be the last time the vampire brothers, Stefan and Damon, will be seen together with Elena Gilbert.
Many of the actors will want to move onto something else. Dobrev is reportedly moving into film with an upcoming comedy movie Let’s Be Cops. It will hopefully kick off her movie success, something that some of the other stars on the TV show, including Somerhalder, have failed to achieve.
However, it may not be the promise of a movie career that will take Dobrev away from the set. The issue for her is Reed turning up to the set every day. The Twilight actress and Somerhalder reportedly moved in together after just weeks of dating. Reed is reportedly worried that something will happen between her boyfriend and his ex-girlfriend. After all, the two play love interests on-screen.
The two dated for a few years before splitting up in 2013. However, they managed to keep their professional relationship as their characters got closer in the show. It seems that Dobrev has tried hard to keep that professional relationship, but is giving up and leaving The Vampire Diaries.
Some fans may be ready for the show to end. Six years is a good run for TV shows, especially shows on the CW network. Many argue that the first two seasons were the strongest and are now waiting for it to come to an end; that is the only reason some watch it.
It has been popular for those who want to see Elena choose between the vampire brothers. While many have been fans of the Elena-Damon relationship, many others want to see her get back with Stefan. However, last season made it seem like that was almost impossible, with hints that Stefan could find love with Elena’s vampire friend Caroline. Elena also made it clear that she had grown a lot since meeting the brothers, and she was no longer as in love with Stefan as she used to be.
Fans have not seen any signs that there are problems in the personal lives of the main casts. On-screen, Elena and Damon appear extremely in love. Season six is going to be interesting to see how Elena deals with the loss of her vampire boyfriend, who was left on the disappearing “other side” on the show. Trailers show that she is using some witchy drug to hallucinate him back, although a recent screenshot of the script shows that Damon may be coming back to life.
This is certainly likely the final season of The Vampire Diaries, although it has not yet been confirmed by the network. The writers may focus on the story coming to an end, but have options when it gets to the last episode just in case it is renewed. However, it seems that some of the cast will be leaving, as Dobrev appears to be getting ready to bring her time on The Vampire Diaries to an end.
