Ian Somerhalder & Kat Graham Seem to Want ‘The Vampire Diaries’ to End
The two stars have both spoken out about the end of the show and when they think it would be. Buckle up because, spoiler alert, they think now is a good time to bid Mystic Falls farewell.
“I think that it's important to go out when the show is strong, and I think it's important to see characters' storylines through,” she continued. “And you know what? If it was the last season, I would still be thrilled because seven years on a show is a beautiful journey."
While Kat is being super direct about her feelings that it’s time for the show to end — most likely so she can focus on her music, the new CW show she’s developing, and her work on the Tammi Terrell and Tupac Shakur biopics for which she’s been cast.
Ian, on the other hand, hasn’t been as up front about the possibility of the show ending this year. His hint that it could all be over happened a few weeks ago when he was campaigning for fans to vote him Favorite Sci-Fi/Fantasy TV Actor at the 2016 People’s Choice Awards.
Notice how the 37-year-old says “it may be the last year to vote for Damon Salvatore” all nonchalant.
We have faith that TVD has more life in it but it’s a little unsettling that two of the show’s biggest remaining stars are fine with it coming to a close.
The Vampire Diaries Season 7 midseason premiere airs Friday, January 29, at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
