We told you back in 2014 that V-Wars was being eyed for a TV show. News just came out that the show has been picked up for a 10 episode and casting is being announced.
Originally a book, then adapted in comic form. There were two “regular” versions of the first issue of the comic. Copies of V-Wars #1 are available on eBay. There were several variants for issue #1, also a V-Wars #0 FCBD.

Ian Somerhalder officially has a thing. And that thing is vampire TV shows.
After starring as Damon Salvatore in 171 episodes of CW’s The Vampire Diaries, the actor is moving on to yet another blood-sucking TV project. According to a new report from Deadline, Somerhalder has landed the lead role in a new Netflix series called V-Wars.
Netflix has ordered V-Wars straight to series, with ten hour-long episodes set for production.
V-Wars is based on the IDW book by Jonathan Maberry, and chronicles the stories of the “first Vampire War.” Somerhalder will star as Dr. Luther Swann, who gets caught up in a world of mystery and horror when his best friend, Michael Fayne, is transformed into a deadly predator after contracting an unknown disease. That disease spreads wide, causing more people to transform, and society to fracture. A war eventually breaks out between the people and the so-called “Vampires,” and Swann is stuck in the middle. It’s up to him to figure out what’s happening, and how to stop the disease. Unfortunately for him, Michael rises to power as an underground leader of the vampires, putting Swann in a difficult spot.
