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.
Erica and Jack are attacked by a Visitor “seeker” device while attempting to contact the police, but are able to destroy it. Erica tries to keep her son Tyler away from the Vs, unaware that he has become a Visitor peace ambassador. On his first day in the role he gets into a fight with an anti-Visitor protester and is thrown out of the programme. Ryan Nichols, a renegade “Fifth Column” Visitor, seeks help to repair the cloned human skin on his arm from another renegade Visitor, Angelo Russo. Anna uses ambitious TV news reporter Chad Decker as her spokesman to the world while the United States grants diplomatic status to the Visitors. Dale Maddox, formerly Erica’s FBI partner, is reported missing, but Erica is unable to tell her superiors that she discovered he was actually a Visitor himself and that she was forced to kill him. However, Dale is revealed to be in the Visitors’ spaceship and is still alive.
