Finally, it has been confirmed that The Vampire Diaries season 8 finale episode will feature the highly-anticipated return of Nina Dobrev. After months of fans’ speculations, they may now take their wonders to another stage – speculations about things that could happen to Elena in the finale.
According to TV Line, Dobrev announced her comeback through Instagram. In line with this, executive producer Julie Plec also expressed her gratitude regarding the actress’ return. She believes that the show will end just how she wanted it to be – with Dobrev giving them a hand in bidding their farewell.
In addition, executive producer Kevin Williamson also expressed his excitement for Dobrev’s return. For him, this will truly make an epic finale.
Nina Dobrev did not actually film any new scenes since she exited from season 6 in 2015. On a brighter note, she did record an audio for her voice cameo in season 7. This was during Sybil’s attempt to lure Damon into the vault by mimicking Elena’s voice. Julie Plec explained:
“I reached out and said, ‘we can either cobble it together from a bunch of episodes, or you can come in and see everybody and do ADR.’ She chose to do it in person, which was great, because it was a nice little personal Nina visit.”
