Vampire Diaries Actor to Star in Netflix's Vampire Series V-Wars

Ian Somerhalder

Ian Somerhalder has been added to the cast of Netflix's planned in-house TV series V-Wars.

Netflix and Ian Somerhalder are ready to fight the V-Wars. There's also no plans for Damon or Somerhalder to appear in the fifth and final season of spin-off The Originals.

Now, Somerhalder is returning not as a Vampire in the V-Wars but as Dr. Luther Swann whose best friend Michael Fayne contracts a disease that turns him into a predator who lusts for other humans. And, much like the bubonic plague, the disease influences society's fracture and disarray into chaos. The series follows Dr. Swann as he races to find a cure, while Michael becomes the leader of his kind.

Edited by Jonathan Maberry, "A Chronicle of the Vampire Wars" is the name of a comic series.

Somerhalder ended his 8 season run as resident brooding bad boy-turned good vampire Damon Salvatore on The CW's hit series The Vampire Diaries previous year when the series wrapped. Somerhalder directed three episodes of Vampire Diaries in 2015, 2016, and 2017.
