Netflix has acquired the rights of IDW graphic novel V-Wars by Jonathan Maberry, and the streaming network has ordered the adaptation straight to a 10-episode series. In the series, Somerhalder will star as Dr. Luther Swann, who enters a world of untold horror when a mysterious disease transforms his best friend, Michael Fayne, into a murderous predator who feeds on other humans. 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. In fact, the vampires of V-Wars sound more like the zombies of The Walking Dead than anything close to what Somerhalder played on the nighttime soap.
NFL Veteran James Harrison Announces He's Retiring Longtime Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Harrison has announced his retirement, and this time he's says it's final. At the end of the season, he entered free agency. "I've missed way too much for way too long...and I'm done".
Since leaving The Vampire Diaries, Ian Somerhalder and his wife, Nikki Reed, have welcomed their first child together, daughter Bodhi Soleil Reed Somerhalder. However, numerous actor's Vampire Diaries fans are sure to follow him to the V-Wars Netflix series for the latest chapter in his career. "We are thrilled to partner with Netflix to bring the multifaceted world that Jonathan Maberry created to audiences worldwide". Swann is desperate to find out what is happening and why, while his friend Fayne becomes the leader of the vampire underground. Brad Turner (Stargate, Stargate Atlantis) will direct and executive produce the series. Die hard fans may be upset however, given how talented he was with his portrayal of Salvatore. In addition to acting in the show, Somerhalder also took on the role as director in Season 7 and Season 8.
Not only will Somerhalder lead the whole shebang as Dr. Swann, he'll also act as a director on the first season of V-Wars (though it's unclear how many episodes he'll helm).
The vampires of V-Wars are a lot different from the kind in Vampire Diaries.
