According to showrunner, Julie Plec, in Season 8 of Vampire Diaries viewers will see Nina Dobrev‘s character Elena reunite with Ian Somerhalder’s character Damon.

Somerhalder and Dobrev dated for three years before ending the relationship. The two remained friends until Somerhalder began dating Dobrev’s friend, and his current wife, Nikki Reed. This is also said to be the reason Dobrev left the show.

The website Celeb Dirty Laundry reports Reed is unhappy with the return of Dobrev out of fear that the old couple might rekindle feelings of the past.

Somerhalder and Reed have expressed their love for one another on social media and in recent interviews. The couple also has mentioned plans to expand their family.

The Vampire Diaries will return to the CW this fall.
