One year after signing off  The Vampire Diaries, Ian Somerhalder will be once again amidst some bloodsucking action in Netflix’s new vampire drama, V-Wars. The streaming powerhouse has offered up a 10 episode straight to series order based on the IDW novel of the same name.

Written by New York Times best-selling author Jonathan Maberry, V-Wars focuses on Dr. Luther Swann, played by Mr. Somerhalder, and his efforts to unravel a mysterious disease that causes a growing number of people, including his best friend, Michael Fayne, to turn into bloodthirsty beasts. Society splits apart causing humans and vampires to battle each other as the disease spreads.

“We could not have dreamed of a better choice than Ian Somerhalder to bring his keen understanding of this genre from his years of starring in The Vampire Diaries to lead the cast of V-Wars as Dr. Luther Swann and to be a creative force on this series, as well as to serve as a director this season.

Even though Ian is not bearing fangs in V-Wars, it will be fascinating to see him sink his teeth into something new. 😉
