Nina Dobrev is officially making her way back to The Vampire Diaries and we could not be more excited. 

Dobrev took to Instagram to reveal the news of her return for the series finale, with a picture of her script, which also confirmed the series finale would be titled "I Was Feeling Epic."

"I know it's Thursday, but this is not a TBT. #BackOnSet #TVDForever," Dobrev shared.

“I’m thrilled to bring this show to an end the way we always intended — with Nina back to help us say goodbye,” executive producer Julie Plec said in a statement.

Adds fellow EP Kevin Williamson, “I’m so excited to have Nina back to ensure our farewell episode is truly epic!”

Fans have been clamoring for the return ever since she departed the series at the close of The Vampire Diaries Season 6.

That was when Elena Gilbert was put to sleep by Kai. 

Her life was linked to Bonnie's, meaning Bonnie had to die for Elena to come back into the land of the living.

It was harsh, but it was better than killing Elena off. 

When it was announced that the series was ending, Julie Plec revealed that Nina made a promise to return to the series for the final episode. 

Thankfully, Dobrev followed through with that promise.

Given how close production is to wrapping, the chances of her return were getting slimmer by the day. 

There's no word yet on whether Nina will be portraying Katherine, or if it will just be Elena Gilbert getting the encore. 

Either way, Dobrev's return should bring the series full circle.

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.
