Speaking to fans of the CW drama at Walker Stalker Con in Nashville on Sunday, Somerhalder said, “We have decided to do one last season to really do the story justice.” His statement drew a quick rebuke from The CW, which insisted “no decision has been made” about the show’s future beyond the just-ordered Season 8. Late Wednesday, the actor released the following statement on Twitter: Hey all, so…Last weekend I talked to an audience at a Q&A about the end of #TVD and how excited I was to make what I believe – my last year – be as great as possible.Whether you want to believe it or not, it’s happening. I personally feel that being involved with “Years” has been the single most important part of my professional life at this point. We would love to see the two boys go down to the Caribbean somewhere and sit on a beach drinking some 60-year-old Caribbean rum, and as the sun comes up, just toast each other, give each other a hug, and take off their rings and throw them into the sea and let them just poof — turn into ash. I don’t think these guys should have the ability to wreak havoc, kill everybody, ruin the lives of so many and then get out with a happy ending.One of the amazing reasons that the first season has been so successful and that I’m really grateful to David Nevins and Showtime is that they took a big risk. “The Vampire Diaries” is ending after eight seasons. I’ve created so much death and so much violence on this show that I think it would be such an amazing win for humanity if Damon and Stefan just went bye-bye. I think the happy ending is that we got to go on this amazing ride with these two guys.
The couple opted for the celeb favorite surprise wedding; guests thought they were going to a housewarming party for the two but were then whisked away to Topanga Canyon to see the two exchange vows.
You’re also a correspondent for the docuseries “Years of Living Dangerously.” Why is that so important to you? There’s i Tunes and Google play and Amazon and Netflix and Hulu. What can you reveal about the “Vampire Diaries” finale? Let Elena wake up and have these boys gone and never know any of this happened. As a producer, I do have a lot of information and then there’s a lot of information I don’t have.
Our greatest challenge of humanity is climate disruption. We have these incredible outlets where media just lives on. A phenomenal, go humanity thing would be where these creatures don’t win. I want the audience to be happy, but I also am very pro human.
