Nina Dobrev’s return to “The Vampire Diaries” Season 8 is still uncertain. Could Ian Somerhalder be planning to ruin Nina’s chances of returning to TVD for his own selfish reasons?


It has already been announced that Season 8 would be the last season for “The Vampire Diaries.” While this led to a special farewell video from the cast and crew of the hit CW drama series in what was the last Comic Con for the group, it also gave rise to a number of mysterious questions.

When the question whether viewers would be seeing any familiar old faces back in the upcoming season was put in front of the group, Ian Somerhalder was the first to answer. “No, you’re not gonna get ‘em”, came a snapping reply from him.

He was then proved wrong by Julie Plec, the executive producer of the show, who went on to address Nina Dobrev, all the while speaking directly to the camera. She hoped that Nina would honor the “emotional promise” (of returning?) that she had made to her.

Divorce rumors between the two have been swirling for a while now. Nina’s return to the sets of TVD might be the final blow to their marriage, something that Ian definitely does not want.

Why else would he add that there was about “18.7% chance” of Nina making it back to “The Vampire Diaries” Season 8 during their interview at Comic Con 2016?

Another theory, according to Celeb Dirty Laundry, is the fact that Ian does not want to relinquish the significantly fat paycheck that he has been receiving ever since Nina left. He and Paul Wesley have taken over the entire show and are involved in the creative production too.
