Ian Somerhalder, star of The Vampire Diaries, is set to lead the cast of a new Netflix vampire series entitled V-Wars.
Somerhalder cut his teeth (sorry) in the vamp world across eight series of The Vampire Diaries, which ended in 2017.
- New on Netflix: the best movies and TV shows released every day
- Steven Moffat’s Dracula drama WON’T be set in the modern day
- Downton Abbey’s Matthew Goode to play a vampire in TV adaptation of A Discovery of Witches
V-Wars will be a ten-part series adaptation of the books written by Jonathan Maberry.
According to the synopsis, Somerhalder will play Dr Luther Swann in V-Wars, a man “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.”
There is no news yet on a release date or further casting for the series. Watch this space…
