"The Vampire Diaries" is coming full circle.

Not only is original "TVD" star Nina Dobrev returning for one final goodbye in the upcoming series finale, it looks like she'll revisit her old stomping grounds. The CW unveiled a new teaser Monday, and it shows Dobrev in what looks like one of Mystic Falls High School's hallways.

In the short preview, we see her looking at a trophy case that holds a photo from Elena's cheerleading days. Ah, back when times were simple -- before she had vampire brothers competing from her heart, doppelgangers coming out of the woodwork, and millions of other bizarre #mysticfallsproblems. It'll be nice to see her back after two seasons away, but definitely bittersweet as well.

Get your first glimpse of Dobrev's return below and brace yourself for goodbye.

"The Vampire Diaries" airs Fridays on the CW at 8 p.m. ET/PT and will wrap up its eight-season run on March 10.
