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.
In the dark bowels of the mothership, Anna confronts her mother Diana – the previous leader of their race. So that she could seize power, Anna overthrew her mother and imprisoned her for the past 15 years, allowing the rest of their race to believe she was dead. Anna asks her mother about understanding human emotion and the human soul which she considers to be humanity’s greatest defence as it empowers people. Diana discovers through Anna that Earth is the last viable planet close enough where the Visitors can continue their species, but tells her that using humans for breeding purposes will only ensure that the next generation of Vs have emotions and that she will be unable to control them. Meanwhile, Erica has Tyler’s blood analysed as she believes the Visitors may have done something to her when she was pregnant with him 18 years earlier. Ryan seeks advice from Father Jack regarding whether or not he has a soul, while Anna tries to lure him back to her side by giving his daughter an illness. Chad is a target of a Fifth Column attack. Erica and Agent Malik follow a lead where they both become suspicious of each other leading to a struggle which causes their vehicle to crash.
