In light of the news that Nina Dobrev was leaving, we also wanted to mention that Michael Trevino will be exiting as a regular (he has been cast in the new ABC Pilot “The Kingmakers”). But he won’t be gone forever.
Via Just Jared:
Julie also opened up about Michael Trevino‘s future on the show. (He has been cast in the ABC pilot Kingmakers.)
“Michael has been a beloved member of the Vampire Diaries family since day one. Even though he’s also going to be out in the world exploring new opportunities, we look forward to finding creative ways to make sure he and his character Tyler Lockwood always remain a part of the show.”
