“The Vampire Diaries” is going through a tough time, having to deal with lot of hassles and grudges from diverse points. The cast, the time slot, the rumors are making the show sink in unprecedented troubles. While trouble hounds the CW’s popular show, Ian Somerhalder, the male protagonist of the series expressed his fret about the supernatural show.
Ian Somerhalder has reportedly expressed his concern regarding the news that “The Vampire Diaries” will be moved to a new time slot. The hit series, which is in its seventh season will soon be showcased on Friday nights, as per Celeb Dirty Laundry. Although the move may seem trifling to some, it is an indication that the series might be approaching an early conclusion. The show has held its Thursday night schedule for some time now, and a shift to Friday is characteristic for shows that are heading to be cancelled or are suffering from low ratings. In this case, both of these aspects may have played consequently leading the change.
There is no doubt that the love story of Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev as Damon Salvatore and Elena Gilbert remains to be the strongest point in “The Vampire Diaries” show. With Nina Dobrev no longer in the lineup, CW is reportedly thinking of ending the series early (Via Inquisitr). We have earlier reported that Dobrev’s decision to leave the show at the start of season 7 reportedly did not sit well with her fans. The results of her absence reflected in the ratings for Season 7, which showed a dip of nearly 33 percent when compared to other seasons of “The Vampire Diaries.”
And now the change of time slot hints at the possibility of an end to one of the most interesting and popular series of our time, “The Vampire Diaries”. Apparently, the rumor is that the 36-year-old actor is worried about the new time slot, which could reportedly lead to his exit. But Ian Somerhalder remains tight lipped about his rumored exit; he did speak about the effect of Nina Dobrev’s exit from the show. Beginning from January 29, 2016, “The Vampire Diaries” will be airing every Friday, 8 p.m. The CW is planning to air its newest series “Legends of Tomorrow” in place of “The Vampire Diaries” time on Thursday nights.
