The Vampire Diaries cast and crew have been staying seriously tight lipped about whether or not Nina Dobrev will be back on the show before season 8 comes to an end, but it looks like the actress may have just given away her fate.
Fans are speculating that Dobrev accidentally revealed all while walking the red carpet at the 2016 American Music Awards, playing seriously coy when asked if she’d be returning.
Though Nina wasn’t about to give away too much when asked whether she’d be back on the show one final time during the new interview, it’s what she didn’t say that’s really got fans talking.
The Vampire Diaries fan @kisobrev uploaded footage of Nina addressing the rumours head on to Twitter, claiming that Dobrev all but confirmed that she’d be back before the show ends next year.
“Nina practically confirmed her return in TVD, I’m shook!” the fan captioned the clip, before then tweeting The Vampire Diaries producer Julie Plec to officially announce the news. “@julieplec make it official.”
In the clip, Dobrev can be seen playing seriously coy while on the red carpet, avoiding the question and failing to deny that she will in fact be back.
“That’s a good question. That’s a very, very good question,” Nina replied when asked by the red carpet host about the seemingly never ending speculation about whether she’ll bring back Elena one final time before the season 8 finale.
“You should ask the producers,” Nina then said with a smile. “You should ask the powers that be above.”
But while Nina (kind of) hinted that she’d be back, as we already told you, fans have been speculating that if Dobrev does return, it could be as Katherine and not fav favourite character Elena.
