Saying goodbye is never easy and nobody knows that better than Nina Dobrev. The actress, who recently returned to Atlanta to partake in The Vampire Diaries series finale, took a moment to bid a proper farewell to the show after shooting her final scene.

Just as she did when she left the series two seasons ago, Dobrev took to Instagram to share a lengthy, heartfelt post with fans, where she reflected on what The Vampire Diaries means to her.

“This is my true final goodbye, as today I shot my last scene of the Vampire Diaries forever,” wrote Dobrev. “Coming back for the series finale has been a whirlwind of emotion, nostalgia, love, tears of joy and bittersweet endings. It feels like the beautiful closure we all needed, myself included, and I couldn’t have been happier to come home to be with my TVD set family and friends.”

From there, Dobrev goes on to say that she’s positive the series finale will be truly satisfying for all of the fans who’ve stuck with the show until the very end, and also writes that she hopes viewers will continue to support the cast and crew as they go on to other projects.

“I grew up on this show and am eternally grateful for all the opportunities it has given me, and so thankful for each and every person who worked on The Vampire Diaries over the last 8 years,” continued Dobrev. “We are all pieces of a big puzzle and without every truly amazing cast and crew member, this magical puzzle would not be complete.”

In an adorable move, the actress signed off her post as each and every single character she’s ever played on the series, and also added the hashtags #TVDForever and #FangsForTheMemories.

Dobrev chose to pair her thoughtful words with a photo of the custom gift she had made for her TVD family.

Dearest TVD family, It feels like it was just yesterday that I was saying goodbye. And yet two years have passed and here we are again.

It feels like the beautiful closure we all needed, myself included, and I couldn't have been happier to come home to be with my TVD set family and friends. I feel the fans family will also be happy with the show's conclusion when they tune in to watch the last episode air in a few short weeks.
