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

From one vampire show to another...

In addition to starring in the series, Somerhalder is attached to direct. Somerhalder previously directed three episodes of The Vampire Diaries. The streaming service granted the project a 10-episode straight-to-series order on Monday, also announcing Somerhalder's casting as the central character, Dr. Luther Swann.

"[Dr. Luther Swann] enters a world of horror when a mysterious disease transforms his best friend, Michael Fayne, into a murderous predator who feeds on other humans".

Doing his all to understand what's happening, he'll be forced to go to extreme lengths to get to where he needs to be, all whilst his friend is making a bid to become a powerful leader of other humans who have been affected by the disease that's taken over his mind and body. The series is based on the IDW novel of the same name, by author Jonathan Maberry. Swann becomes stuck in the middle and is tasked with figuring out how to stop the virus.

In 1999 it returned to its pedestal just in time for an official visit to Athens by then United States president Bill Clinton. The statue suffered minor damage while at least three protesters were injured, with blood trickling from their heads.

Ian Somerhalder may be known well as the cocky lifeguard to LOST fans, but he's best known as The Vampire Diaries' Damon Salvatore.

1-800-Missing creators William Laurin and Glenn Davis will serve as showrunners for V-Wars. 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. "We are thrilled to partner with Netflix to bring the multifaceted world that Jonathan Maberry created to audiences worldwide".

The V-Wars graphic novels revolve around a virus that turns human beings into risky vampires that are out for blood.

Not only will Somerhalder lead the whole shebang as Dr. Swann, he'll also act as a director on the first season of V-Wars (though it's unclear how many episodes he'll helm). Let us know what you think by dropping a comment below!
