Eternal Vampire Ian Somerhalder Is Starring in Netflix's New Supernatural Series, V-Wars

You'd think that after spending eight years playing a vampire on The CW's The Vampire Diaries that Ian Somerhalder might have had enough of supernatural horrors for one lifetime, but it seems the actor is diving back into the world of the undead. Somerhalder is set to star in Netflix's upcoming series V-Wars , only this time he won't be playing a vampire.
In the 10-episode series based off of New York Times bestselling author Jonathan Maberry's IDW graphic novels of the same name, he'll play Dr. Luther Swann who gets sucked into a terrifying new reality when his best friend Michael is transformed into a murderous predator by a mysterious disease. Michael has to feed off of other humans to stay alive, and he's not the only one - the disease begins to spread, and society soon devolves into warring factions of uninfected people against the vampires. As Swann attempts to figure out how to stop the disease, his former friend rises through the vampiric ranks to become a powerful leader.
