After Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev called off their relationship in May 2013, their fans eagerly waited for new episode of "The Vampire Diaries" every Thursday to watch the power couple onscreen. But the news about Dobrev's departure from the popular supernatural series came as a disappointment to them and they started sharing their feeling on Twitter with hashtag, #ninadobrevforeverourpetrova.

Through tweets, her admirers started pleading her to return on the show, but the 26-year-old has her own reasons for exiting from The CW series. Although she did not reveal much about the cause for her decision, she teased a roller coaster ride on Instagram.

However, Dobrev fans does not seem to be convinced with her explanation and they expressed their grievances on the comments section. The messages ranged from "I'm done with TVD and all of you but , WTF you actually don't care do you ?", "well this is extremely depressing" to "This is just sad as in super sad!!"

Meanwhile, there are several speculations doing the rounds. A few fans believe Somerhalder's engagement with "The Twilight" Star Nikki Reed has forced Dobrev to quit "The Vampire Diaries". 

Here is the Instagram post by Nina Dobrev:

Dearest TVD Family,

I've just spent the most beautiful weekend on Lake Lanier in Georgia with my own TVD Family, the cast and crew of The Vampire Diaries. I want to be the first to tell you that it wasn't just a holiday celebration, it was a goodbye party. I always knew I wanted Elena's story to be a six season adventure, and within those six years I got the journey of a lifetime. I was a human, a vampire, a doppelganger, a crazy immortal, a doppelganger pretending to be human, a human pretending to be a doppelganger. I got kidnapped, killed, resurrected, tortured, cursed, body-snatched, was dead and undead, and there's still so much more to come before the season finale in May. Elena fell in love not once, but twice, with two epic soulmates, and I myself made some of the best friends I'll ever know and built an extended family I will love forever.

There's more to come before we wrap this up, and I promise you'll get to hear all about my experiences over the next month as we approach the season finale (I have given an exclusive interview for the June issue of SELF Magazine that I am excited for you to see!), but until then I invite you to hop on the roller coaster ride that is Elena Gilbert's life and join me as I celebrate her and prepare to say goodbye to her -- and to my work family -- as I move on to the next chapter of my life. I want to share this goodbye with all of you (this weekend's pictures were just the beginning). You, the wonderful fandom who gave more love, support and passion than anyone could have ever imagined seven years ago, when a young Degrassi girl from Canada showed up in LA to audition for 'that Twilight TV show.' ;-) I love you all. Fasten your seatbelts. If you think you know what's coming, you don't.

Love, Nina
