The Vampire Diaries to Lose Series Regular

at . Comments

The Vampire Diaries is about to lose a series regular.

But at least this individual won't be joining Lexi and company on the now-destroyed Other Side.

"[Jeremy] is going to art school," Creator Julie Plec tells TV Guide of the young Mr. Gilbert.

"We'll see what his next path and journey is, [but Steven R. McQueen] is all grown-up and ready to move on, so we're saying goodbye to him as a series regular. We got him a cake and dressed as superheroes and gave him a big party!"

Hey Little Brother - The Vampire Diaries Season 6 Episode 3

Look for McQueen's exit to take place on The Vampire Diaries Season 6 Episode 14.

Will you miss Jeremy? Will he get his reunion with Bonnie before departing Mystic Falls? And who will take over as the wifebeater-wearing stud in town now?!?

The Vampire Diaries Season 6 Episode 11 airs on Thursday, January 22 at 8/7c on The CW.

Matt Richenthal is the Editor in Chief of TV Fanatic. Follow him on Twitter and on Google+.

Vampire Diaries Quotes

You want a love that consumes you. You want passion and adventure, and even a little danger... I want you to get everything you're looking for. But for right now, I want you to forget that this happened. Can't have people knowing I'm in town yet. Goodnight, Elena.

Damon

Damon: You know what they are? Children. Like lighting a candle's going to make everything OK, or even saying a prayer. Or pretending Elena's not going to end up just like the rest of us murdering vampires. Stupid, delusional, exasperating little children. And I know what you're going to say: 'It makes them feel better, Damon.' So what? For how long? A minute, a day? What difference does it make? Because in the end, when you lose somebody, every candle, every prayer is not going to make up for the fact that the only thing you have left is hole in your life where that somebody that you cared about used to be. And a rock with a birthday carved into it that I'm pretty sure is wrong. So thanks, friend. Thanks for leaving me here to babysit. Because I should be long gone by now. I didn't get the girl, remember? I'm just stuck here fighting my brother and taking care of the kids. You owe me big.
Alaric: I miss you too, buddy.
