Earlier, when Somerhalder said, that season 8 is going to be the end of the series, he had to apologize. Later, he said that he may leave the project but it could be continued. There is still hope for the next season because it is believed that due to the absence of actors and writer, the show can’t be cancelled.

Even CW didn’t confirm anything related to the cancellation of the show. We can just hope for the best for the future of Vampire Diaries, at least until we get an official confirmation from the CW.
