NEW - 08/02/2018 - KEN JOHNSON gives us an update on V: The Movie Trilogy. "As described in the earlier announcements below, the new incarnation of Desilu Studios is eager to bring V The Movie to a theater near you. Desilu is currently endeavoring to get their overall house in order while simultaneously finalizing the funding for our picture. The V Trilogy is the most important project on their agenda."

NEW - 02/06/2018 - KEN JOHNSON publically announces that Desilu Studios is on board to bring "V" to the big screen!

"We are delighted to team up with Desilu to bring the timeless -- and timely -- story of resistance against tyranny into the 21st Century," Johnson said. "V will be the first of a cinematic trilogy which will tell the full epic tale in the manner I always envisioned."

"Desilu was revolutionary in its time and as the saying goes, everything old is new again," said maverick businessman Charles B. Hensley who acquired the Desilu brand with a vision of reimagining Desilu into a global entertainment and commercial empire. Hensley continued, "Coming from the consumer products space, it makes sense for the company's trajectory and shareholders to focus on film and television properties with high merchandising and licensing potential such as V The Movie Franchise." "Identifying and driving valuable allied profit centers, maximizing income potential for each property is our ideal content model," added Michael Mann, Exec VP Business Development.

The highly sought-after project was brought to Desilu by development executive Sean Stone. "V is a multi-billion dollar film franchise and merchandising juggernaut," said Desilu Exec VP Steven Posen, adding, "we couldn't be more excited and honored to bring this film to the millions of devoted fans worldwide."

"It's no small irony that the new Desilu will be building on the sci-fi tradition with 'V', considering Desilu was the original studio responsible for Star Trek!" added Stone.

Desilu Studios, Inc. is a Delaware corporation engaged in film, television, merchandising, content streaming, theme parks and cinemas. 

Message from KEN JOHNSON:


From Kenny to the fans and devoted friends of V...

The announcement above is a very important and extremely positive development toward achieving our goal of making
V The Movie and the two sequels based upon my novel V The Second Generation.

Desilu has entered into a contract with our company, Victory Pictures, which grants them an Exclusive Option on the motion picture rights to
V The Movie and the opportunity to present it to their investors. Desilu
hopes to have the full funding in place within the next few months.

Once that financing is complete we will be able to announce when actual production of the movie will commence. In the meantime we are indeed delighted to be involved with the great team at Desilu -- who are as
enthusiastic and eager as we are to make a movie that we can all be proud of.

Keep checking back here to learn about our progress and...

Go tell your friends!"

NEW - 02/06/2018 - Sad news... our beloved MICKEY JONES, who played Ham Tyler's sidekick, Chris, has entered hospice. Here is a message from his dear friend, Michael (not Ironside): "I spoke with Mickey's wife, Phyllis, today. She gave me an update on Mickey. He had made the decision to go into Hospice (God Bless that organization) and is continuing on this mortal "Ride". I am Happy to report that predictions of his imminent departure (like so many predictions) were premature. He can currently say "rumors of my demise have been greatly exaggerated". He is currently off all medication. The end may be near but he is resting peacefully. I am planning to see him either today or tomorrow."

Visitor Malcolm Shaw meets up with other Visitors from different Motherships at Comic Con San Diego 2011!


NEW - 7/25/2011 - Our beloved "Chris Farber" from V:TFB has an urgent message.  Today, one fan, Steph, has already agreed to have her kidney tested.

MICKEY JONES NEEDS YOUR HELP.  He has entertained, done charitable work, and taken on challenging roles for many decades. However, he is now faced with the biggest role of his life: kidney failure.  

Three days a week and several hours each day Mickey is connected to a dialysis machine. This has prevented him from doing many things he loves and it may eventually take his life. Even with those he knows and his own notoriety, he has been unable to obtain a new kidney. Efforts were made to have his name added to the transplant list at Cedars Sinai Medical Center, however, he is considered too old to get a living kidney. You see our government cuts off all transplants at 75 years of age and Mickey is 70. There is currently a six year wait. So time is of the essence.

Mickey Jones is one of the most compassionate men you will ever meet. He is caring, selfless, and ever-giving of himself, time, and energy. But now it’s time for the tables to be turned. Six of his friends and family have already stepped forward to offer a kidney. However, one by one they were eliminated for various medical reasons. Now we must reach beyond that circle.

This letter is written in urgency and distress. Whether you are a friend, fan or family member, you are reading this because Mickey has touched your life. We need to find a way to make him smile again, a way to help his life return to a level of normalcy, a way to keep him in our lives for as long as possible.

Will you help?  Do you know someone who can help?  Once again, the question is asked: "GOT KIDNEY?" Please spread the word… Email Mickey for more information on how you can be tested.

NEW - 5/17/2011 - Check out the PROJECT ALICE video from the Trailer Park Queen herself, JOLENE SUGARBAKER!

NEW - 5/13/2011 -  PROJECT ALICE'S goal has always been to get "V" renewed for a 3rd Season, no matter which network.  Now that ABC has cancelled "V," it's time to continue our plea to WARNER BROTHERS to shop "V" to other interested parties.  After careful consideration and research, the most viable place for "V" to continue is on cable's Turner Network Television (TNT.)  TNT and WB are subsidiaries of Time Warner

With this June's Steven Spielberg alien invasion series "Falling Skies" already given a 2-season summer deal on TNT, with the first season premiering this June 19, TNT taking "V" to pair with it on Sunday nights is a VERY viable plan. They could make it their Alien Invasion Summer Sundays !! (Thank you Patrick J. Gillease for the research and catch phrase!)
We need to immediately refocus ALL our Project Alice efforts solely toward the WB execs to pick "V" up on TNT !!! Yes, The CW (which WB also owns) and SyFy can also be targeted, but TNT should be the prime focus, since they picked up "Southland" after NBC canceled it (and SL was a WB-made show as well).

Please continue writing to the 2 WB Execs: Mr. Bruce Rosenblum & Mr. Peter Roth (addresses above), but THIS time, write that you're a part of Project Alice and you want to see TNT pick up "V!"  Snail mail can go to Mr. Michael Wright, Executive Vice President, Head of Programming, C/o TNT, 3500 W. Olive Ave., 15th Floor, Burbank, CA 91505. "We want 'V' on TNT!'

NEW - 5/13/2011 - ABC has CANCELLED "V!"  ABC has CANCELLED "V!" ABC has CANCELLED "V!" Read about it HERE.  Now more than ever we must CONTINUE to write our letters into the WB via PROJECT ALICE!  It's time to have WB shop "V" around to other networks, cable, etc.!  Most networks will now NOT accept "V," however, the ABC ratings for CABLE would be very high!  LET'S DO THIS, PEOPLE!  Join PROJECT ALICE WRITE TO THE 2 WB EXECS!  Post your thoughts on my Message Board!  GO GO GO!!

For the "V" fans!!! 

Special thanks to WB for making this happen! And super thanks to Mr. Rosenbaum THE Man himself!!!

Q: Please explain the daily duties of a Showrunner vs. Executive Producer. How do you have time for both? Also, you’ve done writing. Who makes the decision to have YOU write an episode vs. a different writer? How did you come to partner up with Gregg Hurwitz?

A: The showrunner and the Executive Producer are usually the same person. The Showrunner is essentially the CEO of the TV show. The showrunner oversees every aspect of the production: from the writing, casting, producing, editing, marketing, directing, etc... There are often times other Executive Producers. Some are high level writers. Some are producers who work on the show (like Steve Pearlman).

In regards to having enough time to do it all, you just find the time. I am lucky in that Steve Pearlman (an EP) is someone I trust implicitly with the production and post production of the show. Steve carries a lot of weight for me in these areas allowing me to focus more on writing. Gregg was a writer I hired after I came on board. I had read a pilot of his and liked it. We met and decided to hire him onto the staff as a writer/producer. Gregg had little TV experience but it turned out it was the best hire I ever made as he's been a go to writer on the show from Day 1.

Q: In “V,” it is mentioned there are 538 Motherships (not including the 29 already announced.) Is there a significant reason for the number “538?” Who came up with that number and why?

A: 538 is the number of members of Congress and the Senate. I had government on my mind so I decided on that number as I was polishing the script.

Q: Are there any inside jokes in Season 2? Example: In Season One, an address was 4400 as a “hello” to Joel Gretsch’s previous TV series. If yes, please name a few of the inside jokes that we can look for as we re-watch Season Two.

A: Not really. There are some character names of friends and family but not more than that.

Q: Will there be a Season Two DVD Release and if so, when? Will there be any extras we can look forward to, such as outtakes, audition tapes, voiceovers, etc. Audition tapes would really be cool to see!

A: There will be a season 2 DVD release. I am not sure of the release date yet but I do know that it will be filled with goodies. Lots of outtakes, deleted scenes, special features from the writers, producers and actors, and commentaries.

Q: Please tell us the path you took to rise to Executive Producer. How did you start in showbiz? Is this something you always wanted to do or you just fell into it? Please share any fun or not so fun stories from your very first couple of show biz jobs.

A: I actually started as a staff writer on THE SHIELD. I worked my way up to Executive Producer there. Then I went to CHUCK as an EP. In the middle of Season 3 of Chuck, I was asked by WB brass to take over V. In regards to stories, there are too many to tell. It'd make up a novel. End of the day, hard work and perseverance, mixed with some talent and luck got me where I am.

Q: Do you seek out your next job (i.e. as a contractor?) or do you work for a company that pays you year round and you get asked to work on a show…? How does the process for what you do work?

A: It's different with every job. Sometimes a company will seek you out to run a show. Sometimes there's a show I'm interested in and I'll seek it out. Most writer jobs however are like independent contract work. No guarantees. You work on a show and get paid per episode produced. If the show ends, you stop getting paid. There are some "overall deals" where you're paid a yearly salary but these are rare.

Q: Marco Beltrami is the series music composer. Marco studied under Joe Harnell, who was the composer for “V” The Original in 1983. Was Marco hired because he studied under Joe? I know casting directors usually hire the actors, but who’s in charge of hiring the music director? Were any other musicians being considered?

A: Since I came onboard after Marco was hired, I can't tell you that. However, the showrunner hires the composer (and everyone else on the show) so Scott Peters would've hired Marco. Thank God because he's brilliant.

Lastly, thanks to Project Alice for the support. You are amazing. The entire cast and crew thanks and salutes you!

NEW - 4/06/2011 - So far I have the following information CONFIRMED.  SCOTT WOLF IS on Hold.  LAURA VANDERVOORT is still UNDER CONTRACT if S3 is a go.  MARC SINGER and JANE BADLER have NOT been placed on hold.  I'm still waiting for confirmation or denial from the other "living" characters.  PLEASE NOTE:  A very wise person told me that just because the actors are "on hold" and/or still "under contractual obligations," it should NOT be taken as a positive OR negative sign that "V" is likely to have a third season.  In other words, do not let this news get your hopes up, even though as fans, we always hope for the best!

NEW - 4/06/2011 - V FANS: I have a task for you all. If you could, PLEASE send in a photo of yourself making the ''Peace sign'' (Which also stands for V) Upload them on Project Alice's wall. All photos will be used to make a slideshow video & nothing else. This is to show some more support & our love for the show. So please tell any other family or friends to join as well. (Group or Single photos would be great)  (Thanks Brady! Words by John May Lives On!)

NEW - 3/28/2011 - Fantastic $$$ breakdown from a "V" fan as to why ABC should renew "V!"  Read below (Thanks Patrick!)

As posted on TVByTheNumbers by Terryjackson1nyc:

  1. I don’t think it’s a fair assumption at all that V has lost money for either ABC or WB. The problem is that, any show’s total take for an entire season does directly correlate to how many shows are aired. If you air more episodes of a hit, you’ll make more money overall; if you air more episodes of a bomb, you’ll lose more. So far, ABC has been betting against V, with its 4 episodes, 8 episodes and then 10 episodes. (I guess this is because sci-fi is hard enough by itself, let alone when it is serialized and doesn’t fit your overall demographic.) Below, though, I’m going to show you why they can keep it. Some of the numbers are from various sources and are may be off here and there. Most numbers are from articles I found in Google news.

    At an average of 1.9, any show without a skyrocketing budget should be able to make money. According to oft-cited numbers on TVBTN, V’s ad rates were $100,000 each this season. That’s probably about right, but I’ve read they were over $120k; I’m still going with that lower number as our starting point to do some math.

    With about 19 minutes of commercials, ABC can air up to 38 30-second ads per episode (they may have run more, since every episode of V this season ran for 61 minutes, meaning another $200,000 can be made that I’m not counting). The shorter, 15 second ads cost more per second, running about $55-60K. If you don’t buy ad time in bulk, these prices can actually double, but, again, I’m assuming the lower, just so you can see how profitable V is at a minimum.

    If half of V’s sellable time is filled by 30 seconds spots and the other half with 15 second ads, you’d have $1.9 million for the longer ones and $2.3 million for the shorter ones. Together, that means V is pulling in $4.2m/episode, more than double what it costs WB to produce them, if the oft-quoted $2m per episode cost is correct. If WB licenses V at 3 million per episode, WB would make a $1m profit for each 42 minute show it licenses to ABC. On the other side of the relationship, ABC would make $1.2 million, which means it is making more off of the show than WB and, therefore, the better end of the deal, as should be the case when you’re selling something meant to be resold. ABC, then, pulled in $12 million for V’s second season. And that is with the smaller figures used to make a point; that $12m/10 episode season could be up to 20% or so less than ABC actual profit.

    By the time V aired this season, ABC’s new shows had all flopped (even the ones that were produced in-house). When V came along, its performance, by comparison and on its own wasn’t at all horrible, especially considering no ad money was spent on V after its third episode ran, sometime around the State of the Union. If anything, the only mistake ABC made with V was not having an 11th episode, which could have aired last week instead of that “best of the movies” special, which earned a 1.6 in V’s place, which was lower than V ever went (though, on the bright side, it probably cost nothing to make).

    V has not bottomed out, as is clear by the fact that its high (2.1 for the season premiere) is only .2 above its average, (which was at 1.9, its average). Since V will be cheaper to produce next year (with fewer stars/regulars; also, the lion’s share of its effects were produced for the finale alone and are reused from episode to episode), WB might lower the licensing, but it shouldn’t have to, since ABC is making more than twice what it is paying for it.

  1. Lots of ABC shows make more money per episode than V does, but only a few of them are scripted. Last year, Desperate Housewives pulled in $5.5m in ads per episode, but, as an in-house show, all of its costs and promotional consideration fell on ABC. With a higher budget than V that is fueled by several multi-million dollar paydays casting alone probably eats up close to half of those revenues, leaving $2.7m/episode, 40% or so of which goes to the production arm of ABC, with the broadcast arm pulling in $1.6-1.8 per episode. That means DH is probably pulling in less than half a million dollars more per episode than V and that difference is going to diminish if/when new contracts are signed in the coming weeks.

    So, ABC can simply license V from WB, leaving its ABC production company to a budget that is already being stretched by the rising costs of its aging hits, as well as the management of a reported dozen or so pilots with as yet undetermined individual budgets. A deal with WB to air 10-13 more episodes of V some time after November, when the season’s overall profitability is determinable, wouldn’t be a bad thing. It should definitely perform better than at least two or three early starters (if the history of any one network is has anything to say). Plus, if Body of Proof fails, they get to have at least one veteran drama that isn’t already a dinosaur.

    V can happen. It can be profitable. ABC has to hedge its bets, yes, but it’s been profitable thus far and stable its entire second season, which is rare for genre and sci-fi (though it isn’t unheard of).

NEW - 3/16/2011 -  Quick Take for Tuesday, March 15, 2011, (Fast Affiliate Live + Same Day Ratings)

Season Finale of ABC’s “V” is No. 1 in its Time Slot in Men 18-49, Drawing its Biggest Audience in 4 Weeks and Highest Men 18-49 Number Since January

“V” (9:00‐10:00 p.m.) The 2nd season finale of ABC’s “V” posted gains over the prior week in all key Adult and Men demos, attracting the show’s largest overall audience (5.3 million) and its highest Men 18‐34 (1.2/4) and Men 25-54 (2.4/6) numbers in 4 weeks – since 2/15/11. Further, “V” matched its highest rating in Men 18‐49 (2.0/6) since mid‐January – since 1/18/11. The ABC drama ranked No. 1 in the 9 o’clock hour in Men 18-49 (tie), standing as the No. 2 TV show on Tuesday (tie).


The name "Alice" means Truth.  In the vein of Project Aries with the humans wanting to expose the truth, plus the inside joke that Alice is Jane's sister, it's the perfect name for our CAMPAIGN!

Had an AMAZING time with ALICE BADLER & BRIAN TOSKO (president of the Jane Badler Society) for the finale of "V!"  A fantastic episode filled with surprises even more than the surprises that were leaked!   Alice thought it would be cute if she took pics of our reactions during the show.  See pics below!

Right after the show ended, Brian and I got to speak to JANE BADLER!  Jane told me that during her death scene, she was suspended partway into the air by a crane.  Once the crane needed to go higher, there was a stunt double, and it was also a stunt double when Diana was being thrown to the ground.  What a fantastic death!!

Brian Tosko & Ilana in the "V" Sweatshirts ... a gift from JANE BADLER! These sweatshirts were only offered to cast and crew.  Thank, Jane!!

NEW - 3/11/2011 - KEN JOHNSON responds to the Mothership debate!  Please see the article written below from Patrick J. Gillease on 3/09/2011 which sparked fan Andy to share his ideas.  SEE KJ's RESPONSE AT THE BOTTOM of this post.

There's a wrong assumption in the article that assumes that the landing bays are in the circular indentation.  They're actually spaced outside of there on the underside of the mothership.  There are two landing bays, one above the other spaced inbetween the ships lasers.  Have a look at the following image and you'll see where they are. The indentation is the gravity drive. When we see the landing bays being used, they correspond to the landing bays highlighted in the picture. There are 26 landing bays on the original.
I believe Andy is incorrect. Nobody ever said the areas he pointed to are landing bays. First he says there are only 2, then he says 26. Even his own argument is inconsistent. Plus the landing bays ARE in the circular area. We saw this in the original miniseries.
What I think REALLY is going on here is that KJ first depicted the smaller ships coming out of the ring. And I suspect he would say all the landing bays were encircled in there. But by the time he left TFB, they made an actual filming model, which I own, and some design elements were changed and/or enhanced when all they had were matte paintings for the MS in the original.

In the end, Andy and I may BOTH be right. I would ask KJ and see what he says?   We clearly saw a shuttle coming out of the ring in the original mini, so were ALL the landing bays in that ring - at least in HIS original?!

We were working so fast and loose when we created the original designs -- literally over a weekend -- I don't think we ever stopped to analyze exactly where all the landing bays would be. There was never any "master blueprint" created such as one can find for Star Trek's Enterprise or The Titanic, etc..--

The first shuttle that appears does emerge from the inside center, however when it returns from the U.N. roof the camera pans it up to a bay entry point that appears to be on the outside perimeter, otherwise we'd see the "inner circle" bending off toward the left side of the frame.
Basically, we were working very impressionistically.

NEW - 3/11/2011 - From EW - 'V': The Fifth Column is single-handedly destroying the world

NEW - 3/09/2011 - Heard from KEN JOHNSON!  I asked him the following two questions and he responded!  Thanks, KJ!

IR:  When your new "V" movie is greenlit, how does it work regarding hiring a music composer?  Would you be in charge of that or someone else?
KJ: Me.

IR:  Who decides the main location for filming?  Does it depend on which cities are giving tax breaks at the time?
Me and my producing team.  Yes, combined with the correct look for the picture, plus local crew availability and  and a few other factors.

NEW - 3/09/2011 - Here are some cool insights from my former partner in the 1980's "Quad V" fan club, Supreme Commander Patrick Gillease. He was commenting to me about how one of "V's" most prominent features compares between the two series, specifically the Motherships. Read on.....

In both versions of "V," the signature moment is in the beginning of each saga when the Motherships appear in our skies and take position over their target cities. Of course this was most influential in the original 1983 mini-series because it was the first time we had seen it. It was also riveting in the ABC version, but by then, the impact was less since it had already been done before, and the movie "Independence Day" ripped off "V" with their entire premise years afterwards.
The original Motherships were classic in their simplistic and streamlined design: a traditional, perfectly round saucer, aimed after humanity's typical view of what a UFO looks like, only much grander in scale at three miles wide for each. What an imposing presence these 50 ships took on as they flew in from space and hovered over our global cities.
ABC's "V" design team decided they wanted to contemporize the Motherships and make them a little more specific, rather than just aping the original saucer design. At first, this annoyed me as a fan, but I quickly grew to appreciate the new Motherships when I read an article about their design cues, which many of you may not know. Each Mothership is fashioned from the head of Earth's Cobra snake since the Visitors are reptiles themselves. The design team rightfully thought that making them look like a genuine reptile would more accurately represent what the V's would design and fly in.
From there, the difference between the 2 Mothership designs is more pragmatic. The original Motherships had multiple landing bays, but all of them were congregated in the central circular opening in the underbelly of the ship. This made them all simultaneously vulnerable to an enemy attack. A single Mothership could conceivably have it's entire fleet of skyfighters and shuttles immobilized if an enemy attacked the Landing Bay ring. As such, it was a very bad design. Only the simple, circular nature of the original Motherships wins out in the attack comparison, because nobody could determine where the front and back of the ships were.
With ABC's Motherships, the front of each ship is the Cobra's "face", with its "eyes" slanting upwards from the "mouth" of windows on the Bridge. The stern of each ship is another row of windows in the wide-flanked rear, thus making these Motherships more vulnerable to an enemy attack since their bow and stern can be easily detected. Where they have their overall edge is in their underbellies, with not one, but SIX landing bay circles, five of which surround the main opening in the center. Now, an enemy would have to attack multiple openings to try and take out the landing bays and their fighters - something unlikely to happen. Of course, that's assuming that the ABC Motherships even have skyfighters, since after 2 seasons, we have sadly yet to see a single one?!
A final comparison can be made with ABC's stealth capabilities for its Motherships, which was something lacking in the original NBC versions. It has been divulged that these new Motherships have the capacity to "cloak" themselves into invisibility, a-la "Star Trek." This was seen in last night's terrific episode when Sid showed Hobbes and Jack the numerous blue energy signatures being given off by the 538 cloaked Motherships hovering in Earth's atmosphere, waiting to attack. This is a far-superior design over the original Motherships and a lethal feature for an enemy.
In the end, both Mothership designs have their pros and cons, but I must give the clear winning edge to the new ABC version. A classic is always a classic, but just as they redesigned the "Battlestar Galactica" for the new incarnation of that epic sci-fi show to more accurately reflect a streamlined and improved design for functioning performance, I would say the same has been done with "V" and its Motherships. Now, all we can do is hope that we get to see more of the Motherships in a third season of "V," be it on ABC, The CW, SyFy Channel, or some other venue. Cross your lizard claws !!

NEW - 2/22/2011 - Keck's Exclusives: V's Finale Bloodbath - TV Guide

Leapin' lizards! V's March 15 season finale will kill off up to one-third of its cast! With only central characters Anna (Morena Baccarin) and Erica (Elizabeth Mitchell) safe, executive producer Scott Rosenbaum says two or "possibly even three" of the following actors have been let go: Scott Wolf (Chad), Logan Huffman (Tyler), Morris Chestnut (Ryan), Joel Gretsch (Father Jack), Laura Vandervoort (Lisa) and Jane Badler (Diana). Hoping the bold move will get him a third-season renewal from ABC, Rosenbaum says he chose his victims based on "what would be most devastating for the characters I want to continue." 
"People are going to be shocked," promises Laura, sounding as if she made the cut. "When we read the script there was initially shock, then sadness." So who got the ax? Considering Laura says the firings were like "seeing your son go off to college or grandma passing," I'm guessing college-age Tyler, Granny Diana and underused Chad may not be long for this world.

But V isn't waiting until the big deaths to amp up the drama. The show is about to revive the original '80s miniseries' parallels to Nazi Germany. In the March 1 episode, Anna unveils a machine that extracts Earthlings' most attractive DNA traits (beauty, fertility, immunity, strength, intelligence) as part of her plan to breed an interplanetary Master Race, while annihilating those she deems inferior. "There is obviously a comparison to Hitler," says Laura. "I think it makes for good television, but I don't know how I feel about it.

NEW - 2/21/2011 - "V" compared to "Fringe?"  I don't THINK so!  A recent article at AfterEllen written by Heather Hogan states "If V starts making you doze, you can replace it with Fringe."  Let's get two things clear:  I'm sure you can all agree with me, especially after last week's episode, that "V" doesn't make you fall asleep.  And as much as I hear how great "Fringe" is, it can NOT be compared to our show.  On a happy note, we all love AfterEllen and Heather Hogan, as well as everyone else who contributes to the AfterEllen site.  Because of AfterEllen & AfterElton, we have become more aware of gay/lesbian/bi/trans issues in entertainment!

NEW - 2/09/2011 - 'V' to end on cliffhanger? Article by Morgan Jeffery, TV Reporter

"The season season of V will end on a cliffhanger, reports suggest.

According to Entertainment Weekly, the show's writing team have decided to leave several story arcs unresolved, despite the show's middling ratings.

The most recent episode of the sci-fi drama attracted 5.7m viewers, considerably down on the 14.3m that watched the series premiere in late 2009 but only slightly below the 5.83m that watched the first season finale in May.

ABC is expected to monitor ratings for the remainder of the second season before deciding on the show's future. The network will likely make a final decision in May.

Executive producer Steve Pearlman previously insisted that a third season of V is still a possibility, while series star Elizabeth Mitchell (Erica Evans) stated that the upcoming season finale is "not a wrap-up" for the show."
