Will There Be A ‘V’ Season 3 (Updated)

Updated: April 4th

While speaking to the press at WonderCon 2011 in San Francisco today, AX grilled V executive producer Scott Rosenbaum about whether or not there will be a season 3 of V:

“We do not know about a third season at this point,”

However, if there is a V Season 3, Rosenbaum is excited by all the possibilities that the season 2 finale “Mother’s Day” left open.

“I am most excited about it more than I have ever been, because [V] has gotten to a place at the end of this season, the closest to what I wanted it to be. Now we have a situation where you have a realistic human resistance that actually has a possible shot of defeating the Visitors. Whereas before it was a motley crew of four or five with a priest, an FBI agent. It was sort of like the rebels in Libya fighting – they are never going to win. The only way they have a chance is with an organized military complex behind them. I like that. That is very exciting to me. Now we can see them make a real dent in Anna’s plans.”

Rosenbaum also adds that the characters have been pushed to extremes, which will also make for some great drama too.

“I pushed the characters to a place emotionally where I am excited about it. Erica is going to find out her son was murdered and what that’s going to do to her will be fascinating to watch. Other characters have died, the stakes are high, Anna knows she’s almost been betrayed, Anna’s real daughter is locked in a dungeon, Anna knows there is a real chance that other Vs may revolt as well and so her timeline is shrinking so she had to move faster and quicker for her plans to work. Now that we have seen the Visitors we can see a lot more of them. There is a whole bit of mythology about the second part of their plan that we could get into. That I don’t want to give all away because that will be fun to watch.”

Pacing is another major issue Rosenbaum says will be resolved in the proposed Season 3.

“The pacing of the shows will be very much like that last episode, they all will be peddle to the metal and tons of story and excitement. That’s more the style that I prefer as a writer and I was actually pulled back to a style that I was uncomfortable with. My voice as a writer is much more like that last episode than the ones you saw before because I was asked to slow things down. I didn’t believe that was the way to go but I did the best I could. I can’t wait, I’m excited about [a potential Season 3].”

We are encouraged by the news that Elizabeth Mitchell and one of the show’s executive producers will be attending the Wondercon convention in San Francisco on Sunday, April 3. If the show had very little chance of survival, they wouldn’t go to the trouble, would they?

Here’s the info on the WonderCon V panel, which curiously talks about “teasing what’s to come”:

Executive producer will dish on the year that was — and will tease what is to come in the epic battle for survival between the Visitors and the human race. V is produced by HDFilms in association with Warner Bros. Television.

In an exclusive interview with Morena Baccarin, AX has asked the star her thoughts on V season 3, here’s what she said:

Question
:Are you optimistic that there will be a Season 3 of V?

Answer: I am. I think you never know with television. I feel very proud of this season. I feel like we’re finally giving the audience what they want. I think it’s really exciting. I just feel really grateful and happy to be able to play this role. I think it’s so much fun.

I know, not really much on what we can rely on right now but despite V’s low ratings, the show has been fantastic recently and deserves a proper final chapter. What do you think?

  • Jewelsizme

    PLEASE bring V back for at very least a third season. (Tho’ I’d gladly see 4 or 5 seasons or more). BUT a “closing chapter” is the very least what is owed to the invested fans !
    I prepose why don’t you just let SyFy at it instead, I’m sure they would do the show justice. – (ABC SUCKS !!!) 

  • Tatami_potato

    should be a regulation about cancelling TV shows without conclusion….

    I wasn’t so optimistic about the show at first but after watching some episodes and seeing mothers day i want more…its an exciting show and it deserves more audience.

  • marian

    PLEASE PLEASE!!!! LET THERE BE A SEASON 3!!!!

  • jim

    I hope that threre will be a season 3 as i feel that the story in season 2 had left the story unfinished in a way, including the question what actually happens next to the people who are transfixed to the mothership at the end of season 2,what happens next to the resistance do we win or are they wiped out,what stoes erica take to avenge her son’s death and does she find out that the real lisa is,nt responsible for her son’s death.Will there be a daring plan to rescue lisa from her dungeon so she can help defeat her mother, or does anna get subjected to her come upanced for all of the things she’s done especially for the murder of her own mother ‘by the way anna that’s no way to treat your mother’ and when do we see the fleet attack.

  • annunaki

    every wounder maybe the reason for canceling it, is that some higher power does not like where the producer is going with this, this show could be a message to the people.

  • Tom

    Hollywood don’t miss the opportunity, it’s all about
    timing.

    i had the show recorded on sky the first few eps. didn’t pull me back to watch it again but after i went back to it i was completely hooked by far on of the best story lines in a show for a long time i think it needed better advertising and this would make a great classic and perhaps a little less use of the blue screen for rooms on the ship and more use of sets as this can some times take you out of the story and back to watching a tv show if you know what i mean other than that it is great can’t wait for the next season :)

  • Maui

    Why o why was V canceled or not continuing? Lets think about Battlestar Galactica did that get canceled after the 1st or 2nd season? Keep on going with it, if those who don’t watch this new V don’t force them or whatever –

    That goes the same with the Dinosaur program that I had also enjoyed too Terra Nova, or kill all blue monkeys.

    The creators have a choice let them continue on their assignments, Actors need Jobs, viewers need entertainment ‘n’ stuff. Come on guys let them continue

  • Maui

    With The Terminator the series was being screened that only lasted 2 or 3 seasons (stariing Summer Gule & other characters) I think.

    Compare to V, really why is it not showing any more episodes ‘n’ seasons they should be –
    Just what I’d said with Battle Star Galactica that didn’t get canceled & they had went all the way to the final episode on how they’d came to our planet Earth.

    V should be the same with up to 4 or 5 season’s worth.

  • Gertrude

    i really need the season 3, please let there be a season 3!!!!

  • ej
