Ian Somerhalder (“The Vampire Diaries”, “Lost”) will star as Dr. Luther Swann in an upcoming Netflix Series “V-Wars” and you can now see him in action in the new trailer. The series, based on Jonathan Maberry’s bestselling graphic novel “V-Wars” (IDW Publishing), arrives on the streaming giant on December 5th and chronicles the stories of the first Vampire War.
Somerhalder is no stranger to vampires having starred as Damon Salvatore, the bad guy turned hero, in the popular show “The Vampire Diaries” that ran from 2009-2017 (which is available on Netflix in both the UK and USA).
Dr. Luther Swann (Ian Somerhalder) enters a world of untold horror when a mysterious disease transforms his best friend, Michael Fayne (Adrian Holmes), into a murderous predator who feeds on other humans. 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 races against time to understand what’s happening, while Fayne rises to become the powerful underground leader of the vampires.
