Fans of CW's largely popular vampire drama television series, The Vampire Diaries, could not get any more disappointed after hearing of leading lady Nina Dobrev' decision to quit the show. Despite the fact that Dobrev will be leaving CW, the show has still been green lighted for the production of its seventh season though it has been reported by sources that it will be the last Vampire Diaries season.

To properly send her off, the cast and crew of the show held a farewell party for Dobrev at Lake Lanier, Gerogia where the actress posted to social media about the happening.

 "I always knew I wanted Elena's story to be a six-season adventure, and within those six years I got the journey of a lifetime. I was a human, a vampire, a doppelganger, a crazy immortal, a doppelganger pretending to be human, a human pretending to be a doppelganger. I got kidnapped, killed, resurrected, tortured, cursed, body-snatched, was dead and undead, and there's still so much more to come before the season finale in May. Elena fell in love not once, but twice, with two epic soulmates, and I myself made some of the best friends I'll ever know and built an extended family I will love forever," Yahoo quotes the actress.

Characters leaving the series is not strange for the cast and crew of The Vampire Diaries having several exiting over the year. Previously, the show has lost Steven McQueen, who plays Dobrev's on-screen brother Jeremy, Marguerite Maclntyre and Michael Revino.

However, despite her departure, Dobrev urges her fans to continue on supporting her as a new chapter in her career opens. ABC News quotes Dobrev, "Fasten your seatbelts. If you think you know what's coming, you don't."

Celebrity Dirty Laundry reports that Dobrev's departure may be a strategic move for the actress. This is due to the show's poor ratings and The Vampire Diaries have been getting as of recent as well, bad rep from the whole Nina-Ian-Nikki love triangle. Though show creator, Julie Plec states that the show can still go on without Dobrev and Trevino, there is still a chance that the show may be cancelled because of the ratings. Even with that possibility looming over the show, the series isn't going to let Nina leave without the proper closure to her character.

 "The show wants to give Nina her proper finish. She deserves it and many don't want to ruin that by adding her to next season even in a guest spot situation. If this is her last season they want to make it her last season and make it mean something. They would only consider her to return during the finale," Hollywood Life quotes a source.
