Ian Somerhalder Returning to TV (And Vampires) With Netflix Series”

From one vampire show to another... 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.

The Hollywood Reporter was first to report the news.

Somerhalder is set to headline V-Wars, an adaptation of the IDW graphic novel series, which has received a 10-episode, straight-to-series order from Netflix.

Written by Jonathan Maberry, V-Wars tells the story of a world in peril. As the disease spreads and more people are transformed, society fractures into opposing camps pitting normal people against the growing number of these vampires. Swann becomes stuck in the middle and is tasked with figuring out how to stop the virus. Michael then goes on to become a powerful leader of other vampires.

Ian Somerhalder is sticking with the whole vampire thing after signing on for Netflix's V-Wars. "We are thrilled to partner with Netflix to bring the multifaceted world that Jonathan Maberry created to audiences worldwide".

Brad Turner (Human Cargo, 24, Stargate, Stargate Atlantis) is attached to direct the pilot episode of V-Wars and executive produce the series as a whole. William Laurin (Once a Thief, Aftermath) and Glenn Davis (1-800-Missing, Power Play) will serve as joint showrunners. 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.

There is now no expected release date for V-Wars, but it's highly likely that Netflix will release the entire first season at once, as the company does with most of its original programming.

Former Vampire Diaries star Ian Somerhalder is returning to his roots.

The V-Wars graphic novels revolve around a virus that turns human beings into unsafe vampires that are out for blood. Let us know what you think by dropping a comment below!
