You’re certainly wondering what’s the common trait between Ian Somerhalder, Netflix and Vampires ? However, if you know that actor, you already know he’s a lead role in The Vampire Diaries, a show about vampires. Ian Somerhalder played in this show for about eight seasons and he’s now about to play in another vampire themed show.
Indeed, Netflix ordered a season of ten episodes for the show named V-Wars. This show will be adapted from the eponymous novel and will tell the story of Dr Luther Swann, played by Ian Somerhalder, and his best friend. At this point, nothing special. But a mysterious disease will infect the best friend of the Dr Luther Swann which will turn him into a bloodthirsty vampire.
Although it was scheduled for four years ago, V-Wars never came. Today it’s a new team who’s behind this project and Netflix is in command. Ian Somerhalder wasn’t randomly selected, his role in The Vampire Diaries, certainly played in his favor. For that matter, according to the society who’s producing V-Wars, Ian Somerhalder will perhaps direct some episodes, on top of his lead role. We will have to wait patiently for more information about this new vampire show, wishing it to know the same success than The Vampires Diaries.
