I first came across the television show, V, when I was at ComicCon in 2009. We got to preview the first episode and see a panel with the stars. It was actually awesome and the show was really intriguing. Unfortunately, the show got cancelled after two seasons.
In the series finale, the 5th Column is crushed in a failed coup against Anna. A new human opposition force has entered the picture called Aries Project. All humans above ground are blissed and fall under Anna's spell just as the V Armada approaches. An evil twin Lisa has been created who seduces Tyler, becomes impregnated by him, and then murders him. Lisa, the Visitor Princess, is imprisoned after an attack on her Mother's life and Anna kills her mother Diana.
That’s all pretty crazy, right? If the show had been picked up for a third season and, magically, I was writing the next episode, I’m pretty sure it would be even crazier. Since I have been so obsessed with apocalyptic and dystopian books lately, I would make the third season premiere be doomsday for humanity. Of course there would be various survivors, leading the characters into a dystopian world. The Visitor/human hybrids would survive the apocalypse, as well as some humans and Visitors. The third season would focus on the survivors trying to make sense of this new world. The V’s would rule the world (hello, dystopia) and V/human hybrids and humans would both fall under their regime. Everyone would be terrified except for the Vs. I don’t know about you, but I think it sounds pretty good. If you could write the next episode, what would you make happen?
I have been hired by Warner Bros. WBWord division to promote V Season Two on DVD.
