The Vampire Diaries‘ Ian Somerhalder has given us a sneak peek of his character in the new series, V-Wars, which will air in 2019 on Netflix.
V-Wars is similar to World War Z as it is an anthology of first account tales from the front-line of the Vampire Wars. How did the Vampire Wars start? Well, this is not your typical supernatural tale, humanity is infected by a bacteria that is unearthed in an expedition in Antarctica. Depending on a person’s heritage, an individual will evolve into different types of vampires. The first book in the series revolved around science and politics, while the later books are more horror-based.
When World War Z was adapted into a movie, they focused on a main character that showed you the enormity of the plague that impacted mankind. So, it will be interesting to see who will be that character that will make us want to follow this story. Will it be Somerhalder’s Dr. Luther Swann?
The rest of the cast is as follows:
- Adrian Holmes as Michael Fayne
- Jacky Lai as Kaylee Vo
- Peter Outerbridge as Calix Nikos
- Peter Breitkopf as Dez
- Kimberly-Sue Murray as Danika
