Ian Somerhalder Joins The Cast Of Netflix’s V-Wars

Ian Somerhalder has been added to the cast of Netflix’s planned in-house TV series V-Wars.

Television viewers who have been following the science fiction and supernatural genres for the past decade or so are bound to recognize Somerhalder. After appearing in such productions as Young Americans and The Rules of Attraction, he got his big break as Boone Carlyle on J.J. Abrams’ wildly popular series Lost. More recently, he played a regular role on The CW’s horror drama The Vampire Series.

Based on the IDW comic series of the same name, V-Wars is set for a 10-episode premiere season. It is unsure when exactly the program will make its debut on the streaming service.

Superherohype shares the following information about Somerhalder’s character:

Somerhalder will be portraying the starring character, Dr. Luther Swann, in V-Wars. Swann gets introduced to the horrific world of the vampiric when his best friend, Michael Fayne, succumbs to the disease, turning into a vampire and feeding on the blood of others. It doesn’t take long for the disease to spread. And, much like the bubonic plague, the disease influences society’s fracture and disarray into chaos. Swann will race against the clock to figure out how to save his friend.

About the author

An aspiring writer, longtime film junkie, and former disc jockey (where I graduated with a BA in Political Science), I've made the jump from penning book reviews and current events editorials for to writing movie and TV news and reviews.

When I'm not working towards my certificate in Radio and Television/Video Production at Fullerton College, I enjoy reading (horror, science fiction, and historical/political nonfiction are particular favorites), participating in my school's TV and theatre clubs, attending movie screenings, plays, concerts, and other events, and trying to come up with pithy things to say on social media. Believe it or not, there are occasions where I find time to write for my own leisure.
