"The Vampire Diaries" cast and crew said goodbye to Mystic Falls on Wednesday, Feb. 8. That was the official final day of production, and the stars and producers were all understandably emotional. The CW show has been airing since 2009, now finishing up its eighth season of supernatural smarts, sass, sex appeal, and shockers.
Fangs for the memories, guys.
Here are last day reactions from showrunner Julie Plec, and stars Kat Graham (Bonnie), Matt Davis (Alaric), Candice King (Caroline), Paul Wesley (Stefan),and Ian Somerhalder (Damon):
It's the last day of The Vampire Diaries and I'm crying my way through my final morning commute. #tvdforever— Julie Plec (@julieplec) February 8, 2017
And that's a wrap on Bonnie Bennett! Thank you to all the amazing fans for all your love ❤️ https://t.co/mqM9PmYQAA— Kat Graham (@KatGraham) February 9, 2017
Well, kids...— Matthew Davis (@ImMatthew_Davis) February 8, 2017
That's a wrap for Alaric!
Thank you supporting us along this crazy journey. It's been a real honor.
I love you all!
The show has one more scene left to shoot, and we say goodbye.— Paul Wesley (@paulwesley) February 9, 2017
That cake is everything. Nina Dobrev just returned for the final episode and wrapped her scenes before the final day, sharing her own goodbye post.
Fans won't see the season/series finale until March 10, but when you do watch it, keep in mind how much each scene meant to the stars.
"The Vampire Diaries" airs Fridays at 8 p.m. on The CW.
