Netflix announced earlier this year on their Facebook page the sad, sad, news.
"Sadly we must say farewell to the Vampire Diaries on March 1st. If you've got a spare 5 days, 2 hours and 33 minutes, give it one last complete binge before it's gone."
As expected, people were outraged. So much so that Netflix had to explain themselves further.
"Let's talk about licensing for a second," they wrote in the comments. "When we acquire the licenses for shows or movies, they're not ours forever. Sometimes we're able to renew stuff, but occasionally we don't get the option. We hate losing shows just as much as you do, but it just comes with the territory."
Thankfully, we have the spin-off show Legacies which is doing just that. Carrying on the TVD legacy.
Since it was just revealed on the show that he and Elena Gilbert (Nina Dobrev) have a daughter on the show - Stefanie Salvatroe, we don't think it's goodbye to the OG series just yet.
