Vampire Diaries To End Next Year?

It looks like The CW’s “The Vampire Diaries” might be coming to an end. Speaking on Sunday at WalkerStalkerCon in Nashville, lead actor Ian Somerhalder indicated that the series will close up shop next year.

Variety reports that Somerhalder said: “we have decided to do one last season to really do the story justice.” A few days ago female lead Kat Graham also indicated that next season would be her last and producers were planning big things.

A network spokesperson however has indicated that no decision has been made on the future of the series which was renewed for an eighth season last month. That renewal was dependent on star Somerhalder inking a new deal to return to the series.

The seventh season finale is scheduled to air May 13th.
