Ian Somerhalder Quitting The Vampire Diaries - Conflict With Nina Dobrev, Michael Trevino and Producers

Is Ian Somerhalder leaving The Vampire Diaries? The show doesn’t have a lot of life left in it, and I would say that another season is guaranteed, but more than that? Eh, it’ll depend on ratings and contracts and money, but don’t expect any of the leads to be all that enthused about renewing their deals – especially Ian.

On top of the awkwardness that results from working with your ex-girlfriend every day, Ian has also reportedly threatened to quit the show – in more ways than one. First of all, The Vampire Diaries executive producer Caroline Dries reportedly shared that Ian threatened to quit the show if fan favorite Enzo was killed off. And while Enzo was technically ‘killed’ off, he’ll still be appearing as a ghost, according to the writers. Caroline teased, “He is going to become a ghost villain moving forward. We’ll see him all the way through to the finale as the bad guy.”

Technically speaking, the show did still kill Enzo, and an top of Ian’s other problems, he’s probably irritated his requests weren’t honored – even if he was joking. But in addition to that, Ian clearly has a problem with Damon’s and Elena’s romance on the show, calling it a situation of ‘cradle robbing’. He’s expressed his interest in Damon dating someone his own age, and I’m sure that also has a little something to do with the fact that his love scenes with Nina Dobrev are probably beyond awkward right now, especially if Nina has been hooking up with Michael Trevino!

And in addition to all that, there are rumors that Damon is being killed off in the 5th Season finale. He revealed in a recent interview, “I’m actually excited to see what happens. Stuff you just didn’t see. It is definitely a cliffhanger.” He was also rumored to have stated, “When Damon dies it’s the dopest thing.” Eh… I don’t really think Ian would have given away such a big spoiler [if it's true], so take that with a grain of salt. And he could have also been speaking metaphorically, of course.

But with all these rumors on Ian’s departure, I’m guessing that even if he lasts through Season 5, we’ll still be saying a permanent good-bye by the end of Season 6. Do you agree? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.

    bahaahhaahahah stopppppppppppppp please with this lies

    Conflict with Nina? But they were back together 24 hours ago in your last article. Ahh Bobby’s got her shopping bills paid for the week. She’s got some desperate to believe teenagers clicking on her articles. Now she’s sitting back with wine, laughing at them. But to answer your question, I can’t see Paul or Nina renewing. Time to move onto better things. Nina wants a movie career. TVD holds her back 9 months a year. She’s not getting any younger now. Plenty of 18 year olds moving in.

    I don’t think Stefan should not leave.I think they should all stay.If they are true actors they will act like they are in love on set and if they don’t like each other they can not talk off set.

    Ffs who gives a crap!!

    First I will say that both Ian and Nina are professionals and would not allow their personal lives get in the way of their jobs. Both have said they remain good friends. On Ian threatening to leave the show is something that the executive Producer made up, as a publicity stunt to get fans all in tissy. That’s what they love to do on this show. Why would Ian quit over this Enzo actor, good riddens to him, dose Ian have a crush on or something? LOL. and I doubt that Ian is having problems with Treveno that are all Friends. Notice how the exec Prod stated Ian came to her and threaten to leave but them never finished the story and never mentionds that they worked it out or not come on is all to get everyone worked up. As for Damon dying It probably will happen, but he will come back because it was in the book and the show dose follow some of the books formula. Season Six being the last, Maybe it depends on the actors if they want to continue, I think we could get at least 2 more season and end it on season 7.

  • xtina

    yeah sure ian didn’t get no offer to play in no movie this summer and please he is getting to 36 soon!!!!!!!!

    • guest

      lol He is the most hottest gorgeous 35 year old I have ever seen,, and most mayor movie Actors are older then that

  • xtina

    and nina played 3 characters!!!!

    • guest

      Nina plays 3 characters very well, and ian plays a complex multilayered Character ,that has to change emotions on a Dime to Perfection, He dosent need to play more characters. Also me and Ian’s 12.000.000 Fans and 5.000.000 o Twitter, are not worried about Him, and by the Time The Show is finished Ian will have a Fanbase bigger than the Vampire Diaries all by himself,, He is going up faster than that Show. and we will all support him in whatever he does, He has the most devoted Fan base ever. His Movie will be released in June and he has first Billing. He has been getting lots of offers, but He can’t commit to some of Them because He is in every Scene in TVD, so he is looked up for 10 Months. We will see who will be around after the Show.

      • DamonFOREVER

        DAMN STRAIGHT Ian and Damon are the best damn thing in the SHOW without them the show will just be a bunch of Goody Goody Vamps with Goody Goody Relationships.

        Mostly all the female viewers have kept watching for Ian. Without Damon the show will lose its fire, humorous and sexy side without Damon there IS NO TVD.

        So Go ahead Julie write him off or bring him back in flashbacks the RATINGS WILL DROP YOU SO HARD YOU WILL FALL IN TO A BLACK HOLE IN TO OBLIVION

        I’m sure I also speak for all my fellow IAN Lovers bring him back or I SWEAR I will STOP WATCHING THE IDIOTIC PLOT THAT IS YOUR NEXT SEASON.

  • Andrea Capra

    Well, I am pretty sure that Ian is under contract for 6 seasons…. soooooo…. and I highly doubt that they would release him from the contract since they would know it would kill the show. Unless Ian has just become way too hard to deal with, which I seriously doubt.

  • Jeez

    No, he’s my favorite. He can’t leave.

  • Scarlett

    I hope you are right about him leaving. Because I don’t know if will watch if they don’t keep him.

  • Nikki Mangini

    TVD will be an epic fail without Ian…. Plain and simple. Ian, Paul and Nina ARE TVD, take away one of them and the show is completely ruined. That’s like killing off Spider man in Spider man and still trying to make the show exist…. That will never happen.

  • Shakira

    The best part of this show is Damon and Elena and killing him off is the stupidest decision ever! Grams better have done something to help Bonnie and Damon get back to life other wise this show is just going in the crapper.
