This the least fang-tastic news we've heard all morning (and that's saying something, because it's Monday).
While nothing is official, it looks like season eight of The CW's The Vampire Diaries will be its last (cue millions of breaking hearts, here).
The show's resident hottie, Ian Somerhalder, accidentally let the cat out of the bag at WalkerStalkerCon in Nashville on Sunday, telling fans that the show would end after the next season according to the convention's official Twitter account.
"We have decided to do one last season to really do the story justice," he said.

When reached for comment on Sunday, a CW spokesperson said that "no decision had been made" in regards to the show's fate.
The Vampire Diaries is about to wrap up its seventh season, with the finale to air on May 13. The show was picked up for an eighth season earlier this year in The CW's sweeping renewal of nearly all its shows into the 2016-17 season.
