The Vampire Diaries season 8 started on October 21, 2016 and is almost wrapping up. The starlet did not quite disclose any details on whether she will return to make a final appearance in the upcoming series or not. “The best way I can answer that question is Julie [Plec], Kevin [Williamson], the studio and the CW promise a fantastic series finale,” said Mark Pedowitz, CW President, still keeping the secret under wraps.

Co-creator Julie Plec also commented on the discussion, “Nina has always said that if there’s something for her to do in the series finale that she will be there to do it. When she left, she said, ‘I want to see this character to its end at the end of the show, so I can’t wait to come back and put her to bed again.’”
