Okay, before all, let's cry together... #TVDfamily
Even if it's not the end of the TV series, one of the major character will leave. Nina Dobrev is playing Elena Gilbert in TVD (she also played Katherine) and Michael Trevino is playing Tyler Lockwood (Caroline ex-boyfriend). Nina confirmed on instagram that she will leave the show:
... and Julie Plec (the exec producer) said about Michael that “has been a beloved member of ‘The Vampire Diaries’ family since day one.” His casting in the ABC pilot “Kingmakers” means “he’s also going to be out in the world exploring new opportunities. We look forward to finding creative ways to make sure he and his character … always remain a part of the show.”
Well, with this sad news, I'm wondering how their characters will made their greatest escape. Maybe Elena will comit suicide and Tyler will go to live in the woods according to his wolf/hybrid nature. Who knows?
Apparently, the story may put in the first plan the Salvatore brothers more than anytime. Julie said that it's a challenge for her to continue the show now that Elena and Tyler will be gone...
