The Vampire Diaries Season 8 is due for release and fans of the famous series are eagerly awaiting the reveal of its release date. Meanwhile, the anticipation for the new season has already skyrocketed since Nina Dobrev was announced to make her return to The Vampire Diaries. There are also rumors circling that the “Let’s Be Cops” actress is trying to win back her ex-boyfriend Ian Somerhalder.

Rumors and speculations are suggesting that The Vampire Diaries Season 8 will release on October, 2016. Although a specific date for the release has not been confirmed yet, it could be estimated from the show’s previous premiere dates. Starting from Season 4, The Vampire Diaries has always released within two weeks of October. Hence, if the similar trend follows this season, then viewers could get excited for a release date on either October 6 or 13.

Meanwhile, it is being rumored that Nina Dobrev is trying to woo back Ian Somerhalder in her life again. Recently, Dobrev posted a photo of her bikini-clad body on Instagram. Instantly, fans of the actress started linking her to former lover and The Vampire Diaries co-star Ian Somerhalder. However, fans will be disappointed to know that nothing like this is the case here and both the stars are happy with their individual lives.

While Somerhalder is happily married to his wife Nikki Reed, Dobrev is enjoying being single after a recent breakup with Austin Stowell. Stowell and Dobrev dated for seven months before finally ending the relationship, citing busy work schedule, as reported by E!News.

The fans may not see a real life reunion of Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev anytime soon, but their onscreen reunion will be happening on The Vampire Diaries Season 8. Julie Plec, executive producer of the show has confirmed that Dobrev will re-join the show’s cast as Elena. However, she won’t appear from the beginning of the season and will only appear on the final episodes, as reported by The Hollywood Life.
