Ian Somerhalder To Star in Netflix's Vampire Drama 'V-Wars'

The series based on the IDW novel of the same name has landed a 10-episode order at the streaming giant

V-Wars revolves around Dr. Luther Swann (Somerhalder), who enters a world of horror when a mysterious disease transforms his best friend, Michael Fayne, into a murderous predator who feeds on other humans. With V-Wars, I'm sure Netflix see a great opportunity to use successes of the previous shows and movies about vampires and spin that in a different direction.

According to an April 16 report by TVLine, Ian Somerhalder has been cast in Netflix's V-Wars, which is an adaptation of a graphic novel series. That disease spreads wide, causing more people to transform, and society to fracture. Swann becomes stuck in the middle and is tasked with figuring out how to stop the virus.

The 39-year-old actor has signed on to star in the vampire drama V-Wars, which is based on the book by the same name. While Swann tries to understand what is happening, Fayne becomes the leader of the vampires.

Brad Turner (Human Cargo, 24, Stargate and Stargate Atlantis) will direct the pilot episode and executive produce.

Donovan Mitchell Will Play in Game 2
With just under seven minutes to go in the fourth quarter, Mitchell checked out of the game to be examined by the training staff. Head coach Quin Snyder didn't seem overly concerned as he said: "Everything that we know right now, he's fine ".

Somerhalder is best known for his starring role as Damon Salvatore on the CW's long-running series The Vampire Diaries, which ended past year after eight seasons. "We are thrilled to partner with Netflix to bring the multifaceted world that Jonathan Maberry created to audiences worldwide". William Laurin (Once a Thief, Aftermath) and Glenn Davis (1-800-Missing, Power Play) will serve as joint showrunners. High Park's Eric Birnberg and Thomas Walden will executive produce alongside IDW Entertainment president David Ozer, IDW CEO Ted Adams and Marada Pictures' Games Gibb.

The V-Wars graphic novels revolve around a virus that turns human beings into unsafe vampires that are out for blood.

V-Wars was first announced in 2014 as part of a straight-to-series deal with Entertainment One. Let us know what you think by dropping a comment below!
