His popular supernatural TV show may end soon, but that does not mean The Vampire Diaries star Ian Somerhalder is already not looking forward to equally exciting things ahead. The actor teams up with his wife Nikki Reed as producers for a new television series on The CW.
Ian Somerhalder Turns Producer
The star couple will now wear the mantle of producers for a new TV show titled Transcience. They will jointly produce the series with Warner Bros.
According to International Business Times AU, the new sci-fi will focus on the subject of consciousness transfers.
The plot will see a young and ambitious musician eventually getting a life and a body, which he desperately craves for.
But this process of transformation will have its own share of side-effects and will send him to a rabbit hole.
The story will have some unexpected twists as his past, identity and memory will begin clashing in a strange manner.
Viewers know that The Vampire Diaries is going to end soon. But they can still find some of their favorite characters in its spinoff titled The Originals.
The series is expected to be aired in the same timeslot after the finale of TVD in March this year.
Meanwhile, The Vampire Diaries star Ian Somerhalder will not be seen in the spinoff series. He may concentrate on his production venture.
