This upcoming show titled V-wars might act as a replacement to TVD that ended last year for all the vampire drama lovers. Ian Somerhalder would be starring as one of the leads in the show, essaying the role of Dr. Luther Swann. This is kind of a villain turned hero situation as Ian would be seen as a human in this show. Dr. Luther is in search of the cure for a disease that turns human into bloodsucking monsters, basically vampires. His best friend Michael Fayne becomes a prey to the frightening disease. Luther and other humans who haven’t been turned yet continue to fight against the vampires. Meanwhile, Fayne rises to power among the vampires and things get ugly.
V-Wars, HQ de vampiros de Jonathan Maberry pela IDW, vai ganhar uma série de TV na Netflix estrelada por Ian Somerhalder (The Vampire Diaries). A informação é do Deadline. Inicialmente publicada em 2012 nos Estados Unidos, a trama é ambientada na Primeira Guerra Vampiresca e acompanha o doutor Luther Swann (Somerhalder), que é forçado a encarrar uma nova realidade quando Michael Fayne, seu melhor amigo, é infectado e torna-se uma das criaturas. O piloto será comandado por Brad Turner (24 Horas), que também assumirá como produtor executivo. William Laurin e Glenn Davis, de Aftermath, serão os showrunners. A série de TV de V-Wars terá 10 episódios, sem previsão de estreia até o momento.
The show is based on a New York Times bestseller novel by author Jonathan Maberry, which goes by the same name as the show title. It is a series of books such as V-Wars: Blood and Fire, V-Wars: Night Terrors, and V-Wars: Shockwaves.
Although Ian is quite acquainted with the genre, it would be interesting to watch him play the protagonist here. The upcoming drama V-wars will have 10 episodes of 1 hour. While you wait for it binge-watching the TVD series would probably be a good idea.
