Ian Somerhalder Cast In New Vampire TV Series For Netflix One Year After 'Vampire Diaries' End

Ian Somerhalder to Star in Netflix Vampire Drama Series 'V-Wars'

Ian Somerhalder, who played one of the hottest vampires on TV in The Vampire Diaries, is returning to the small screen in another series about the bloodthirsty creatures. Surprisingly, his role in V-Wars has Somerhalder hanging up his fangs to assume the role of the very human Dr. Luther Swann, who is introduced to the horrific world of vampires when a mysterious disease transforms his best friend, Michael Fayne, into a murderous predator who feeds on other humans. As Swann watches Fayne become an underground leader of the vampires, he's forced to choose between his allegiance to his friend and, ya know, safety.

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

Somerhalder is set to headline V-Wars, an adaptation of the IDW graphic novel series, which has received a 10-episode, straight-to-series order from Netflix.

No word yet on when Somerhalder's series will hit the 'Flix, but we're readying our wooden stakes just in case. In fact, the vampires of V-Wars sound more like the zombies of The Walking Dead than anything close to what Somerhalder played on the nighttime soap. And, much like the bubonic plague, the disease influences society's fracture and disarray into chaos. IDW entertainment and High Park Entertainment will produce, with IDW distributing worldwide (except Canada).

The vampires of V-Wars are a lot different from the kind in Vampire Diaries. "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. He and his Rare Birds Productions are now under a pod deal at Warner Bros. William Laurin and Glenn Davis will act as showrunners while Brad Turner directs at least the pilot episode. The genre remains popular with NBC's Midnight, Texas, and Syfy's Van Helsing, among others.
