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 her boss Paul discover that three peace ambassadors have been killed. While at work, Erica meets her new FBI partner Chris Bolling (Jay Karnes), with whom she went through training. Erica, Hobbes and Ryan find Eli Cohn (Oded Fehr), the leader of a radical faction of Fifth Column and come to an agreement with him, using the men that killed the peace ambassadors as a scapegoat for Agent Malik’s death. Anna meets with a prominent bishop in Vatican City, and coerces the college of cardinals to become official missionaries to the Vs only if they condemn any priests who speak out against the Vs. Anna discovers that one of the bishop’s closest advisers is a former Visitor sleeper agent who had worked for Diana. Anna forces him to return to the mothership to find out what he has learned about human emotion and the human soul, but he will only share his knowledge with Diana. Anna brings him to Diana, who then kills him before Anna can learn what he knows. Diana informs her daughter that the human soul is actually a blessing rather than a curse, but Anna feels that she has enough evidence to use emotions and the soul against humans. Tyler and his friends vandalise Jack’s church to get revenge for the murders of Tyler’s fellow peace ambassadors. Paul and Chris discover surveillance footage of Erica and Jack conversing, and they become suspicious of her. Jack finds Tyler’s phone with video of him vandalizing the church, and shares it with Erica. Ryan returns to the mothership and gives Anna the severed head of Agent Malik. Ryan pleads with Anna to provide his daughter with Bliss, but Anna refuses until Ryan can get closer to Eli Cohn and help her finally bring down the Fifth Column.
