After months of bloodthirsty speculation, Nina Dobrev has confirmed that she will be returning to The Vampire Diaries for its very last episode.
Dobrev, who played Elena Gilbert for six seasons on the undead CW drama, shared a photo of her watermarked script to Instagram on Thursday morning.
“I know it’s Thursday, but this is not a TBT,” the brunette beauty wrote, adding the hashtags “#BackOnSet” and “#TVDForever.”
The photo Dobrev shared, which featured three lit candles and a mess of cursive-filled papers, perfectly encapsulated the eerie and elegant vibe of the long-running series.
And the good news just keeps on coming! Thanks to Dobrev, we now know that the title of Vampire Diaries’ final episode is “I Was Feeling Epic.”
The 28-year-old actress, who just celebrated her birthday with an amazing star-studded La La Land-themed bash, left The Vampire Diaries at the end of its sixth season in 2015.
Back in October, TVD showrunner Julie Plec said that they were very close to closing the deal for Dobrev’s return.
“She and I have spoken and I know that she 100 percent wants to be there and I, of course, 100 percent want her to be there, and so it just comes down to stupid things like scheduling,” Plec said. “Honestly, let’s put it this way: I would be devastated if it weren’t to work out, so I have a feeling the cards will be in all our favor.”
