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 the Fifth Column pretend to kidnap Lisa, and Anna is told to give herself up for Lisa’s freedom. During the exchange, it is planned that Lisa will kill Anna, but Anna tricks her into thinking that she has decided that humans and Visitors should live in harmony and Lisa does not kill her as planned. Ryan and Joshua free Diana, who reveals herself to the other Visitors. Anna then sneaks up from behind her and kills her with her tail. Lisa is then imprisoned in Diana’s former dungeon. Anna’s queen egg hatches and the offspring has skin put on to look exactly like Lisa. Thinking she is the real Lisa, Tyler mates with her, after which the fake Lisa kills him while the real Lisa is forced to watch from her dungeon. Meanwhile, Ryan finds his daughter Amy, who has now matured to the level of an 11-year-old girl, and tries to convince her to escape the ship with him, but instead, Amy strangles him with her tail and appears to break his neck. Erica finds Hobbes is missing, but is then kidnapped and taken to a secret underground bunker a mile underneath Manhattan. The huge bunker houses Project Aries, a secret cabal of top ranking global military and government officials (including Erica’s FBI boss Paul, and new partner Chris) who have long suspected the Visitors’ real intentions and are preparing for a war with them. Upon reviewing video of the fake kidnapping of Lisa, Anna discovers Chad was involved and requests that he be brought to see her. Later, Anna tries to put Bliss on the whole world but it again causes her immense pain and makes her eyes bleed even more than ever. Amy sees what Anna is doing and tells Anna that she can Bliss the world for her, which she does. The only people who do not appear affected are those inside the underground bunker at Project Aries. Erica emerges from the bunker to find that everybody, including Jack, is under the control of the Bliss. More motherships reveal themselves across the globe, threatening to enslave humanity forever.
