Season eight came to an end on ITV2 on March 10, 2017, but fans might have a long wait before they can binge-watch the entire series on Netflix.
(In fairness, even diehard fans admit the show's quality has dropped off precipitously in recent years.) Dobrev has denied quitting the show as a result of her history with Somerhalder, but those in the know say she's just covering her tracks.

In case you missed it, Dobrev and Somerhalder were romantically involved for several years, and TVD fans obsessed over their real-life romance as much as - if not more than - their onscreen love affair.
The relationship ended in ugly fashion, and Somerhalder got married to Nikki Reed (a former friend of Dobrev's) not long after he and Nina parted ways.
