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

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

As Swann watches Fayne become an underground leader of the vampires, he's forced to choose between his allegiance to his friend and, ya know, safety. Based on the IDW novel of the same name, V-Wars (as the name might imply) revolves around vampires.

Ian Somerhalder has locked down his next role after his hit television series The Vampire Diaries ended its run in 2017. As this disease spreads and more people are turned into murderous predators, social structures fracture and an "us against them" mentality pits humans against vampires. As The Hollywood Reporter states, William Laurin and Glenn Davis (creators of 1-800-Missing) will be the showrunners for the Netflix series. Eric Birnberg and Thomas Walden will executive produce for High Park, with David Ozer and Ted Adams for IDW Entertainment and James Gibb for Marada Pictures.

Man charged after allegedly driving drunk to local police station
Responding officers found his wife, Natasha McKinney, 34, on the floor in a bedroom of the residence that they shared. Those arrested, Mr Daplah said, had been charged based on Section 275 of the Criminal Offences Act 1960 (Act 29).

No word yet on when V-Wars will begin filming, but Screen Rant will keep you updated with all the casting and filming news. Its fantasy series Wynonna Earp returns for a third season later this year on SYFY and Space, and its adaptation of the horror comic series Locke & Key is still searching for a streaming home. "We are thrilled to partner with Netflix to bring the multifaceted world that Jonathan Maberry created to audiences worldwide". The actor portrayed the character of Damon Salvatore on the CW series Vampire Diaries for eight seasons.

Since leaving The Vampire Diaries, Ian Somerhalder and his wife, Nikki Reed, have welcomed their first child together, daughter Bodhi Soleil Reed Somerhalder. The genre drama joins a roster of Marvel fare including the recently renewed Jessica Jones and gives the streamer a series vampire drama as The CW is prepping the final season of Vampire Diaries spinoff The Originals, while working on yet another offshoot from the franchise.
