The Vampire Diaries: Kat Graham Leaving After Season 8!

at . Comments

The Vampire Diaries without Bonnie Bennett?

At some point, that's exactly what's going to happen.

Bonnie has been dead, trapped in a prison world and so much more... but Kat Graham will be taking her a lot farther after The Vampire Diaries Season 8 - because she won't be returning for The Vampire Diaries Season 9 (if there is one).

Graham told US Weekly:

"Season 8 will be my last season. 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 are a family."

She fully intends to "blow it out" while she sticks around for the rest of The Vampire Diaries Season 7 and The Vampire Diaries Season 8, however.

Bonnie wasn't in the last episode at all, which had us a little worried, seeing as how Enzo appeared a little antsy when he learned the witch pills he had been squirreling away were fatal.

Had he been feeding them to Bonnie in an attempt to cloak her? We don't need to worry about that now, right?

Graham did say there was some big stuff coming up for Bonnie and to keep an eye out for Episodes 20 and 21, "It's pretty major for the character — huge turns, a lot of stunts and cool s--t!"

Oh, we'll be there alright!

So what do you think? Are you excited for what lies ahead or sad she'll be gone after one more full season?

Don't forget to watch The Vampire Diaries Season 7 Episode 17, "I Went into the Woods" this Friday, and be here for a full review afterwards!

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: 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.
