Yes, Ian Somerhalder’s New Netflix Show V-Wars Finally Reveals Premiere Date And Cool Photos
We knew V-Wars was supposed to debut in 2019 and it looks like Netflix is saving it for the final month of the year. According to the streamer’s new post, revealing a ton of cool new photos, V-Wars will premiere December 5th.
After that news came out on October 30, Ian Somerhalder posted a video to his loyal fans. He said he hoped fans liked V-Wars since he put his whole heart and soul into it — and it even sent him to the hospital! He may share more about that experience later. But this has taken more than a year of his life and he wants fans to watch it and let him know what they think.
In V-Wars, Ian Somerhalder plays Dr. Luther Swann, and our first look at his character was actually posted by the actor back in August 2018. Somerhalder is a producer on the show, and directed one of the 10 episodes in Season 1. He’s already talked about hoping fans watch and like V-Wars Season 1 enough for Netflix to greenlight a Season 2, since he wants a chance to go back and tell more stories based on Jonathan Maberry works.
In Netflix’s V-Wars, a mysterious disease begins transforming people into vampires, and Ian Somerhalder’s Dr. Luther Swann is pitted against his best friend, now a powerful vampire. Adrian Holmes (Arrow) plays Swann’s best friend, Michael Fayne. As the disease spreads and more people are transformed, society fractures into opposing camps of normal people vs. vampires. Swann races to understand what’s happening, while Fayne rises to become the powerful underground leader of the vampires.
