She quit the show to make movies, but Nina Dobrev has announced she's returning to The Vampire Diaries.

The 28-year-old who's famous for playing Elena Gilbert posted a photo of the script for the series finale on Instagram.

She said: "I know it's Thursday, but this is not a TBT. #BackOnSet #TVDForever."

Nina took a break after six seasons on the supernatural drama to star in films including XXX: Return of Zander Cage.

Nina's character, Elena Gilbert, was last seen falling into a deep sleep that would only be lifted if her best friend, Bonnie, died.

Emotional stuff.

But the show's creators say they're bringing the long-running series to an end after eight years in the right way.

"I'm thrilled to bring this show to an end the way we always intended — with Nina back to help us say goodbye," executive producer Julie Plec told Variety.

Co-creator, Kevin Williamson, added: "I'm so excited to have Nina back to ensure our farewell episode is truly epic."

Bit of a hint there.

We don't know any more details about the episode, but we do know it's called: "I Was Feeling Epic".
