If The Vampire Diaries continues beyond its upcoming eighth season, it may have to do so without the help of its Head Witch in Charge.
“Season 8 will be my last season,” Kat Graham — who has portrayed Bonnie Bennett since the CW series premiered in 2009 — tells Us Weekly, adding, “I just hope that whatever I do after, the crew can come with me. … The crew is going to be the hardest thing to let go, because we are a family.”
The Vampire Diaries was part of The CW’s mass renewal last month, which also counted TVD spinoff The Originals among its 11 pick-ups. Graham promises the show’s eighth season — which very well could be its last, anyway — will be one for the history books.
“Another season is a whole other year,” she says, “and we’re going to blow it out.”
