In 2009, a little show called “The Vampire Diaries” premiered (maybe you’ve heard of it?), and we were instantly hooked.
After eight seasons of blood-sucking, supernatural beings and Mystic Falls festivities, the CW drama is coming to an end. While we’re sad to say goodbye, we’re excited to see what’s in store. And, of course, we’re looking forward to Elena Gilbert’s (Nina Dobrev) big return. What does this mean for Bonnie? And what’s going to happen to Delena? So many questions!
As we mentally prepare ourselves for the series finale, which airs Friday, we’re taking a trip down memory lane.
Below, see the cast then and now. Surprise, surprise, Ian Somerhalder and co. haven’t really changed at all. (Maybe they’re all vampires in real life?)
”The Vampire Diaries” series finale airs March 10 at 9 p.m. ET on The CW.
