V is an American science fiction drama television series that ran for two seasons on ABC, from 03 November 2009 to 15 March 2011.
A remake of the 1983 miniseries created by Kenneth Johnson, the new series chronicles the arrival on Earth of a technologically-advanced alien species which ostensibly comes in peace, but actually has sinister motives. V stars Elizabeth Mitchell and Morena Baccarin, and is executive produced by Scott Rosenbaum, Yves Simoneau, Scott Peters, Steve Pearlman, and Jace Hall. The series was produced by The Scott Peters Company, HDFilms and Warner Bros. Television. On 13 May 2011, ABC cancelled the series after two seasons.
Without warning, a fleet of huge alien spaceships arrive at Earth and position themselves over 29 cities across the globe. Anna, the beautiful leader of the alien “Visitors”, speaks to the people of Earth and declares they have come in peace. Explaining that they are far from their homeworld and require certain minerals from Earth to sustain themselves, the Visitors offer to share their technology with humanity in return. Within a short time, the Visitors are widely welcomed as they offer their medical technology to provide miraculous cures for conditions such as blindness and paralysis. Many people begin to view the Visitors as saviours of humanity, but not everybody is convinced. FBI agent Erica Evans and priest Father Jack Landry meet resistance fighter Georgie Sutton, and discover that the Visitors are actually a race of malevolent reptilians underneath their seemingly human features. Worse still, they have secretly been infiltrating Earth for years.
