In the upcoming series, Ian will no longer be giving us Damon Salvatore vibes, but instead will be portraying Dr Luther Swann, a man who is forced to confront the world of monsters and horror after a mysterious disease transforms his bestie Michael Fayne (Adrian Holmes), into a murderous predator who feeds on other humans.
AKA, Michael Fayne becomes a vampire.
Even though the new vamps attempt to live peacefully amongst humans, when news hits the non-blood suckers that vampires are a real an all-out war breaks out.
Earlier this month, Netflix announced that V Wars will be arriving on our screens December 5th.
"If you’re battling the vamps, you’re going to need someone with experience. Good thing @iansomerhalder is here to join. V Wars coming to Netflix on December 5th!", Netflix wrote on Twitter.
Showrunners William Lauren and Glenn Davis have also told us that season one will contain ten episodes.
Mark December 5 in your calendars and prepare to binge.
