New The Vampire Diaries changes could mean the end is near

Is The Vampire Diaries heading toward cancellation?

The CW is making some major changes to The Vampire Diaries for spring, which could be a bad sign for the future of the show.

For the first time in the show's history, it will no longer air Thursday nights. But rather, when Season 7 returns in January, it will begin airing in the less desirable spot on Fridays at 8 p.m., with The Originals following after at 9 p.m.

The CW's much anticipated premiere of DC's Legends of Tomorrow will be taking over The Vampire Diaries' time slot.

More than the switch in lineup, the show is once again facing rumors of strife. According to KpopStarz, the cast would rather see Ian Somerhalder leave the show and Nina Dobrev return.

Now, admittedly, we were worried when The Vampire Diaries lost Dobrev. How can the show go on, after all, without its lead? But the show hasn't just held strong throughout Season 7 so far, but the story is excellent!

We can't get enough of the flash-forwards and all of the new love connections cropping up — not to mention, the juicy backstory and the new development that Alaric hasn't actually lost everything, thanks to the fact that the Gemini coven saved his twins in Caroline. And the Heretics are definitely growing on us, too.

Plus, we wouldn't be surprised if Dobrev decided to return to the show in Season 8 now that she's had a break to catch up, in the same way Claire Holt returned to The Originals as Rebecca.

So, given all these possibilities, to see the show canceled after this season would be a shame and way before the show's time, especially for all of us fans who have stuck with the series through thick and thin and are now loving the plot.

Do you think The Vampire Diaries should be canceled after Season 7?
