Dear diary, a war is brewing between humans and vampires. Enough with diaries, Ian Somerhalder is fighting for humanity in the new original series from Netflix, V Wars. Netflix released the first photos from the horror sci-fi series. Check out the photos below.
These vampires look terrifying. Just the way I like them. There are also a few intense Somerhalder photos as he tries to deal with his new reality.
Somerhalder plays Dr. Luther Swann. From last week’s trailer, we know that Swann is called into to cure this mysterious disease that he says causes DNA mutations. He gets scared when he finds out that his best friend Michael (Adrian Holmes) is infected. That kicks up Swann’s determination to find a cure. The disease spreads quickly and the humans are forced to find ways to defend themselves. Michael becomes a leader among the vampires, who he calls Blood Nation. He says the war is necessary and he’s determined to win.
The series is based on a graphic novel by Jonathan Maberry. Maberry recently held a book signing at The Grave in LA with Somerhalder and Holmes. They held a short panel to promote the series that begins next week.
V Wars also stars Jacky Lai, Peter Outerbridge, Kyle Breitkopf, Laura Vandervoot, and Kimberly-Sue Murray. The showrunners are William Laurin and Glenn Davis. They will also produce with Somerhalder, Maberry, Brad Turner, Eric Birnberg, Thomas Walden, James Gibb, Lydia Antonini, Matthew McCluggage, Paul Harb, and Ted Adams.
Here’s the official synopsis, courtesy of Netflix.
Dr. Luther Swann enters a world of untold horror when a mysterious disease transforms his best friend, Michael Fayne, 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.
V Wars premieres on December 5 only on Netflix.
