While we crossed our fingers that Nina would return to the CW show in the future in some way (even if it was just a never-seen-before flashback), it looks like she's not looking back as she moves forward with her career and her life.
"That chapter is closed, sadly – bittersweet," she told Entertainment Weekly when she was asked if she would ever appear on it again.
The actress does plan to tune into Season 7 when it premieres on the CW Oct. 8, though, adding, "I can't wait to see what the new season will look like. I'll be watching. I'm very excited for my friends."
Back in April, Nina broke our hearts when she announced she was leaving the show, writing, "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."
In spite of Nina's exit though, it looks like season 7 will be action-packed, even without Elena (and a lot crazier too). It will be interesting to see how it turns out, but we'll definitely be tuning in as well.
