The Vampire Diaries Season 8 News: Paul Wesley leaving the show?

The Vampire Diaries Season 8 is yet to start airing and it is already in the news over its star cast leaving the show. The Vampire Diaries is one of the most popular shows currently on TV. But sadly Season 8 seems to have a bleak future.

Few days back we reported that Kat Graham who plays Bonnie Bennet in the hit show is making her exit after Season 8.

“Season 8 will be my last,” Kat told Us Weekly at the iHeartRadio Music Awards on April 3. “I just hope that whatever I do after, the crew can come with me. If the crew can come with me, then we’ll be good. The crew is going to be the hardest thing to let go because we’re a family.”

And now reports are coming in that Paul Wesley who plays Stefan Salvatore is also leaving the show. Sources report that Paul Wesley is leaving the show because of Ian Somerhalder.

Ian Somerhalder recently announced that Season 8 will be his last. And with Ian’s exit, Paul has no choice but to leave the show too.

What will be the fate of The Vampire Diaries Season 8?

The Vampire Diaries initially revolved around its central characters-Stefan, Damon and Elena Gilbert, played by Nina Dobrev. After Nina Dobrev’s exit, the story focused on the bond of the Salvatore brothers.

But with reports of Ian and Paul leaving the show after Season 8, the future of the show looks bleak. It is widely expected now that the once popular show will soon meet its end.

The Vampire Diaries producer Julie Plec earlier told E!News that the fate of The Vampire Diaries rests solely on Ian Somerhalder and Paul Wesley.

“I finally realized that my destiny on this show, creatively, is tied in to Ian Somerhalder and Paul Wesley. And I mean it in a really good way. As long as those boys who I now consider my friends want to keep telling the story, then I won’t walk away from telling the story,” Plec said.

Reports are also suggesting that Nina Dobrev will return for the show’s finale. But with Ian Somerhalder still on the show, it is unlikely that Nina will ever return. After all, she is clearly upset with Ian Somerhalder and his wife Nikki Reed’s baby plans. Clearly, Nina is still not over her ex Ian.
