Ian Somerhalder Starring in Vampire Drama V-Wars

Based on the IDW Publishing franchise of the same name, written by New York Times best-selling author Jonathan Maberry, V-Wars centers on Dr. Luther Swann as he dives into a world of horrors when a mysterious disease ravages his best friend, Michael Fayne, and transforms him from an easy-going guy into a "murderous predator" who hunts other humans and feeds on their flesh and blood. That disease spreads wide, causing more people to transform, and society to fracture. Unfortunately for him, Michael rises to power as an underground leader of the vampires, putting Swann in a hard spot.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Somerhalder has been cast in the latest original series for Netflix, V-Wars. V-Wars is produced by High Park in association with IDW. William Laurin (Once a Thief, Aftermath) and Glenn Davis (1-800-Missing, Power Play) will serve as joint showrunners. Eric Birnberg and Thomas Walden are executive producing for High Park Entertainment, while David Ozer and Ted Adams will serve in that capacity for IDW Entertainment.

While one streaming show about supernatural monsters moves forward, another falls behind, as Hulu recently passed on the pilot for Locke & Key.

There is now no expected release date for V-Wars, but it's highly likely that Netflix will release the entire first season at once, as the company does with most of its original programming. "We are thrilled to partner with Netflix to bring the multifaceted world that Jonathan Maberry created to audiences worldwide", Netflix said in a press release. Despite multiple attempts to bring the series to both the big and small screen, IDW remains committed to finding the project a creative home.

Ian Somerhalder has locked down his next role after his hit television series The Vampire Diaries ended its run in 2017. He now has a pod deal with TVD producers Warner Bros.

Somerhalder is best known for his starring role as Damon Salvatore on the CW's long-running series The Vampire Diaries, which ended a year ago after eight seasons.
