“The Vampire Diaries” is losing its leading lady. Nina Dobrev announced Tuesday on Instagram that she will be leaving The CW’s hit supernatural drama after its currently-airing sixth season.

Dobrev wrote:

I always knew I wanted Elena’s story to be a six season adventure, and within those six years I got the journey of a lifetime. I was a human, a vampire, a doppelganger, a crazy immortal, a doppelganger pretending to be human, a human pretending to be a doppelganger. I got kidnapped, killed, resurrected, tortured, cursed, body-snatched, was dead and undead, and there’s still so much more to come before the season finale in May.

Dobrev, who has been the focus of “The Vampire Diaries,” will certainly be missed. This is a game-changer for the show.
