Cast in New Vampire Show for Netflix

Vampire Diaries alum Ian Somerhalder is set to star in Netflix's upcoming television adaptation of IDW's bestselling novel V-Wars from author Jonathan Maberry. As the disease spreads, Dr. Swann tries to figure out what is going on while Fayne becomes the leader of the newborn vampires. Like V-Wars, Locke & Key is based on an IDW comic series (by Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez) and is now being shopped around.

Vampires seem to be what #Ian Somerhalder knows best. And, much like the bubonic plague, the disease influences society's fracture and disarray into chaos. William Laurin and Glenn Davis, creators of the Canadian crime drama 1-800-Missing, will serve as showrunners for the series. High Park's Eric Birnberg and Thomas Walden will executive produce alongside IDW Entertainment president David Ozer, IDW CEO Ted Adams and Marada Pictures' Games Gibb.

No word yet on when V-Wars will begin filming, but Screen Rant will keep you updated with all the casting and filming news. The actor portrayed the character of Damon Salvatore on the CW series Vampire Diaries for eight seasons. The pickup comes as IDW's Locke and Key is being shopped to other streaming outlets, among others, as the company looks to find a new home for the Carlton Cuse drama based on Joe Hill's beloved comic series.
