Ian Somerhalder To Star In Netflix Series V-Wars

Ian Somerhalder Cast in New Vampire Show for Netflix

Ian Somerhalder is sticking with the whole vampire thing after signing on for Netflix's V-Wars. Somerhalder will star as Dr. Luther Swann, who gets caught up in a world of mystery and horror when his best friend, Michael Fayne, is transformed into a deadly predator after contracting an unknown disease. Soon, more and more people are transformed, creating a divide in society: humans versus vampires. Swann races against time to understand what's happening, while Fayne rises to become the powerful underground leader of the vampires.

The new show, which has been handed a 10-episode first season by Netflix, is adapted from Jonathan Mayberry's IDW comic book. 1-800-Missing creators William Laurin and Glenn Davis will serve as showrunners to the forthcoming Netflix show, which has already been picked up for ten episodes.

IDW Entertainment is the worldwide distributor for V-Wars, excluding Canada. V-Wars: Chronicles Of The Vampire Wars has four installments, and is distributed by IDW Publishing, who is also producing the series alongside High Park Entertainment. That company, as well as the drama's original writer and producers Circle of Confusion are no longer attached.

Although he's playing a mere mortal in V-Wars, Somerhalder will be tapping into his genre expertise to direct select episodes of the 10-episode first season. Despite multiple attempts to bring the series to both the big and small screen, IDW remains committed to finding the project a creative home.

The Vampire Diaries may be over, but you can't keep Ian Somerhalder away from the bloodsuckers. He and his Rare Birds Productions are now under a pod deal at Warner Bros. Television with actress Nikki Reed, his wife, via their Rare Bird Productions banner.

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. He is repped by ICM Partners, Untitled Entertainment and Morris Yorn.
