Vampires stick together!
Hollywood may have said goodbye to The Vampire Diaries earlier this year, but that didn't stop former co-stars Nina Dobrevand Paul Wesleyfrom having an impromptu reunion on a snowy New York City night.
The two actors ran into each other Saturday night in the Big Apple as flurries coated the city. "NYC when it's snowing is full of serendipitous run ins and magical reunions. Like this one. #TVDForever #NYCNOW," the actress captioned a sweet shot of the two smiling stars, who played the tumultuous Elena and Stefan on the since-wrapped series.
Fans of the longtime CW supernatural drama will remember Dobrev surprisingly announced in 2015 that she would not be signing on for season seven. "That was the plan from the get-go," she told harper by Harper's BAZAAR in August. "If anything, the fact that [leaving] terrified me drove me even more." Meanwhile, Wesley remained Stefan until the 2017 series finale.
It must have been a weekend for reuniting because over on the west coast, Saved by the Bell alums Mario Lopezand Mark-Paul Gosselaarcaught up at the Los Angeles Chargers game on Sunday.
"Old school pal @MPG & I kickin it at the @Chargers game..." the TV host tweeted.

They spend long days together, usually for many years. They see each other more than their own families. The bond between TV casts is (usually) strong, so when the show stops the bond certainly doesn't. Thanks to social media we've been treated to more than our fair share of TV reunions and we've assembled the best recent ones—try not to get too nostalgic.
