Ian Somerhalder just can’t get enough of vampires. The “Vampire Diaries” star has a new vampire show called “V Wars,” and it’s premiering Dec. 5 on Netflix.
The streaming service teased the first glimpse of the vampire-licious series just in time for Halloween on Wednesday. You can see them all below.
Based on Jonathan Maberry’s best-selling books, Somerhalder stars not as a vampire this time, but as Dr. Luther Swann, whose attempts to understand the breakout of this “mysterious disease” that turns his best friend into a bloodthirsty creature.
Here’s the show’s official logline, per Netflix: 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.
The 10-episode series is produced by High Park Entertainment in association with IDW Entertainment. William Laurin & Glenn Davis serve as showrunners, while Somerhalder executive produces along with William Laurin, Glenn Davis, Brad Turner, Eric Birnberg, Thomas Walden, James Gibb, Lydia Antonini, Matthew McCluggage, Paul Harb, Ted Adams, and Jonathan Maberry.
In addition to Somerhalder, the cast includes Adrian Holmes, Jacky Lai, Peter Outerbridge, Kyle Breitkopf, Kimberly-Sue Murray, Greg Bryck, and Anthony Grant.
“V Wars” premieres Dec. 5 on Netflix.
