V Wars season 2 release date: When will V Wars return?
As a brand new show that's not yet been renewed, it's really hard to predict when a follow-up might be on the cards.
The first troublesome signs for Netflix may be emerging following the launch of Disney+
The commentariat seems to be coalescing around two schools of thought at the moment when it comes to the hottest two streaming rivals right now, Disney+ and Netflix. One assumption is that Netflix’s pre-eminence as the king of the streaming hill remains assured, with Disney+ reportedly having amassed an audience so far that’s only a sliver of Netflix’s. Analysts have noted in recent days that the launch of Disney+ also doesn’t seem to have interrupted the normal cadence of Netflix app downloads, and there’s also an assumption that the streaming landscape is plenty big enough for more than one major provider of content.
Netflix has yet to announce a Season 2 for the series . But since V Wars only premiered on December 5, there’s still hope. That would be the face of one of the best television vampires around, Ian Somerhalder. The actor is best known for starring as Damon Salvatore in The Vampire Diaries on
Netflix 's V Wars Just Dropped, but Ian Somerhalder Is Already Hopeful For a Season 2 . While talking with POPSUGAR ahead of the premiere, Somerhalder said that he really hopes his fans will fall in love with V Wars the same way they did with The Vampire Diaries.
V Wars was first announced back in April 2018, with the lead roles getting cast soon after. Filming followed a few months later, and season one dropped on December 5, 2019.

V Wars season 2 cast and plot: What will it be about?
As we've said previously, there's a huge amount of source material to work with, so the possibilities are vast.
Season one introduced Dr Luther Swann (Ian Somerhalder) and Michael Fayne (Adrian Holmes), two best friends who find themselves in opposite sides of a fight when Michael is hit with a mysterious virus that turns him into a vampire.
Meanwhile Swann is working hard to try and develop a cure – at first to try and save his friend, but also for humanity's sake as the infliction continues to spread.
Season one really sets the scene of this scary new world, where the vampire virus is causing divisions, invoking fear and collapsing society as we know it.
According to actor Adrian Holmes, the show is a completely different take on the whole vampire genre. "The show itself is progressive and touches on a lot of issues that we have to deal with, such as environmental issues and climate change," he told Digital Spy.
