After 170 episodes having aired in the UK; the 171st and final-ever episode of The Vampire Diaries is set to air on ITV2 in the UK late on Tuesday night, May 9th 2017 at 11.55pm. The finale episode titled I Was Feeling Epic includes the much anticipated return of Nina Dobrev as Elena Gilbert and Katherine Pierce.
Unfortunately, there is no confirmation from ITV2 regarding any airing of the hour long retrospective special titled Forever Yours which aired in America on The CW prior to the finale. However, I have reached out to ITV’s viewer services for comment; therefore I will certainly update everyone if I receive a response. Either way, I am sure the Forever Yours look-back will be featured in the Blu-Ray and DVD box set releases.
I want to thank the entire cast and crew of The Vampire Diaries for 171 episodes of one of the greatest sci-fi television series in modern times; consequently I wish the very best to everyone on their new ventures whether they be spin-offs from The Vampire Diaries or something completely different.
