More bad news for fans of The Vampire Diaries!

We know you barely recovered from this week’s news that Nina Dobrev will be leaving the show. But Mystic Falls is about to lose one other beloved character — this time, of the werewolf variety.

That’s right! It’s been reported that Michael Trevino is officially departing the hit CW series. Trevino plays Tyler Lockwood, our favorite werewolf hybrid slash football player!

Both Trevino and Dobrev set off rumors of their departures after posting photos of the show’s cast and crew at a lakeside retreat.

Though the 30-year-old actor will be leaving, we might not be saying goodbye to Tyler forever. Showrunner Julie Plec had this to say in her announcement of the actor’s departure:

“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.”

Inneresting├óΓé¼┬ª so we may be seeing more of Tyler after all! If Vampire Diaries taught us anything, it’s that death essentially means nothing and everyone can come back at some point!

Do YOU still plan on watching the show without Nina and Michael?
