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.
With Red Sky and now Red Rain unleashed on the planet, the world is on the brink of war and there is chaos all around. Ryan is being kept in isolation on the mothership, as Anna wants to experiment on his hybrid baby. Seeking redemption for being used by Anna, Chad wants to fight with the Fifth Column. After being revived from his fatal shooting, Joshua shows no recollection of his previous Fifth Column ties. Anna announces to humanity that Red Rain is a gift that will repair the ecological damage done to the Earth’s oceans and will reduce global warming. Erica goes on a journey to find a scientist who can give her the answers to what Red Rain really is, and there she learns the horrifying secret of why the Visitors have come to Earth – they need humans in order to breed. Though Anna tells the world that the Red Rain will cleanse decades of damage caused by humanity’s pollution of the Earth, it is in fact a biological agent that increases phosphorus in all humans, which will eventually make them viable for breeding with the Visitors. After the remainder of Anna’s soldier offspring dies, she goes into a secret area in the bowels of the mothership where she confronts her mother, Diana (Jane Badler).
