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].”

Updated: April 2nd

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?

    My family purchased the “V” season one and then just had to get the next season 2. They are FANTASTIC !!! We can’t wait till the 3rd season comes out – we are waiting !!!!!! great writer and great cast, please don’t change the cast as they are PERFECT !!. Thanks the show is great.
    By the way advertise it more i only saw the adds on Pay TV. Lucky i did.
    Cheers..

    Sorry Lynn, but the idiots at ABC cancelled V. 

    It’s funny you mention the ads – I NEVER saw this show advertised and maybe that’s why ratings weren’t good.

  • Jetset440

    There are more people watching V than the rating may imply. Everyone I know is watching and patiently waiting for it’s return. I don’t think they are counting the people who record the show on their dvr’s.

    I hate wat you guys do. You get us into a series and then you cut it off. Please please make a season 3 and make it a finale where we know who wins and who loses and just for cliche let us see Anna defeated. For goodness sake how do you kill off Ryan Nicoles, the rest of the Vs are just followers it is good to see that there are some Vs that believe that us humans are worth fighting for, and that is what ryan and Joshua represent. You should also in the next series show maracas as moving to the other side. I am disappointed that Erica’s son is dead that little brat should have learnt a lesson and realized the true nature of what the Vs are here for. The little Sh** put his mother through a lot. The only reason Erica was fighting was to save him and now what is the real reason she will be fighting because that is all she cared about. It is also disappointed that Ryan is killed by his daughter, why didn’t you guys explore her human side and her connection with her father and the fact that she had a human mother. Ryan and his child’s connection are the key to also messing up Anna’s plans.
    Looking forward to season 3

  • Illidan

    think it went down hear beter in the uk than in us every one i know loved it myself included 

  • Jesuslira87

    please there are far better shows than this one, the big bang theory and how i meet your mother, don’t forget House MD, this show is lame compared to those ones, it would be nice to have a third season just because the second one was inconclusive, but not because its a good show.

  • Arwaghali

    I really like this show and hope to see what will happen next i remember glimps of the 1980s v and the remake is great it bad not to know what will happen next

  • hatesidiots

    lol you watch some garbage, btw every show you mentioned was a comedy whereas this is sci fi 2 completely different genres and therefore only an imbecile would attempt to compare them

  • Blove96

    V is spectacular and my favorite show of all time far excedding this new “Fallen Skys” show its a disgrace in comparison to V! If i have to it will become my new backdrop for apocalptic alien days but I will always remain a V and PEACE ALWAYS!
    -ps: I really hope there is a season 3 :DDDD

  • Siveras

    I’m really looking forward to season 3. This is one of the best TV shows ever!

  • Theirlaw1977

    how can they leave it like that, there must be aseason 3.

  • Jerry

    we want v on tnt project alice,john may lives,we are of peace allways,

  • Bairacmihai

    I realy hope there’ll be a season 3, it’s just awesome!

  • Amazonite

    Once again! another Awesome show with a dedicated GLOBAL fan base and it is cancelled! ARGH!
    ABC are truly awful to do this to their viewers! Why not at least round it off with a mini series if a show is to be cancelled in mid flow!This was the best Sci Fi show for years with an extremely strong cast and story! Hopefully TNT will pick it up for Season 3 ! ??

  • Lincoln

    Spot-on!!!

  • Cmd

    There has to be a season 3, It has the been the only sci fi I have enjoyed since BSG finished. It would be such a shame if they didnt show a final season

  • Gabygm79

    I’m from Mexico and here is beginig the second season and I hope there’s a third season, I hope there counting the people from other countries to continue the show. And as i can see they didn’t even finish it. If they are going to cancel it I hope they finish the show.

  • Cannox

    why is it all these sci fi’s are getting axed after a season or two? There are no more loyal fans anywhere than scifi fans! These shows live on long after they have ceased being made, but please, at least make them a reasonable length. V is a fantastic seriesd and if ratings are low then it is the poor advertising of the networks regarding the show and not the actual show, for it is brilliant! Lets not make V a visiting show, but a more permanent part of our viewing.

  • Rosiessaloncv69

    Please, bring it back! Pretty please.

  • Kressly

    I don’t know what is wrong with this guys to stop a nice show like V

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_SJIYGWHSKFMRDKGZLP2JMMFUNM Eek

    “V” is the best! You have to bring it back!!! It’s not the casts fault that less people watched it the 2nd season. Good grief! You showed 4 episodes, then nothing for a few months. Everyone thought that the show had been canceled or they were confused about when it would be back. Ugh. It was a mess. The cast is great! The story is great. Marena ROCKS!!

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_SJIYGWHSKFMRDKGZLP2JMMFUNM Eek

    NO ONE KNEW WHEN THE SHOW WAS AIRING!!!! How do you watch a show when you don’t know it’s coming back on? I stumbled across it flipping channels and missed a few episodes. You had it starting 3 different times. Once in Oct. (or something) then Jan/ then March. NO ONE KNEW WHEN TO WATCH IT!!!!!  Please bring it back. You can’t just leave us in the dark as to what happens. PLEASE

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_SJIYGWHSKFMRDKGZLP2JMMFUNM Eek

    Right on!!! They did NOT let the viewers know when it was coming back on! What a slap in the face to the cast! GIVE THEM ANOTHER CHANCE! and ADVERTISE IT THIS TIME!!!!!

  • Jt

    Sorry people ABC have cancelled the show

  • Rfthtyitr

    how the hell can the ratings be low with “V”??? its THE BEST show i’ve ever watched, it is full of adventure, suspense and everything a good show must have.

  • DJMCCAN

    i think it was because of season 1 people gave up hence the low ratings, if it had been like season 2 it would’ve been success – BRING ON SEASON 3!

  • Juicyjoe315

    WE NEED   V   BACK!!!!!!

  • Ricky

    Que barbaros nos dejan a medias ya queremos la season 3 yo que vi y fui fan de invasion extraterrestre me agrada que incluyeran a gente que partiipo en au antecesora… Felcidades a sus productores..Mx

  • damaori

    sick of waiting bring it back

  • v-viewer

    ABC, please give all of us loyal viewers a proper ending to this show. It has been one of my all time favorites. It still has so much potential!

    If they are going to cancel it they should at least make a movie to end the series.

    GREAT ….JUST GREAT.. A HOPE IT LAST FOR  10 SEASONS MORE…

  • Samurai

    He is… i suppose :D

  • Samurai

    if they really were to cancel it. it’s pretty less likely that they will bring it to a conclusion

  • Samurai

    Check out yourself first… may be your minuscule mind can’t apprehend the complexity of a sci-fi movie. if it’s really the case, i suggest u stick to the simple comedy shows which fit to your tiny understanding

  • Andi

    I never really was a fan of Sci Fi films/shows, though this show really hits the spot. It has great action and even some comedy. The second season was great and the show “V” defiantly deserves to get another season. I really am looking forward to watching the 3rd season if it is granted. 

    I finished this show in barely 1 week! Perfect time to spend in my holidays. GOOD LUCK to you Scott Rosenbaum!

  • Juliocesar_delao

    i didn’t like it at first… I’m mexican but i’ve seen it on line at i’m at 6 am ’cause i couldn’t stop watching the last 4 episodes!! jajaj anyway the serie actually was good at first… then a bit lame but the end is awsome!!! i hope they get a 3rd but final season :)

  • Wiseman001

    I LOVE  V… watched the 80′s show, have all the video tapes, every show, now the new V is just as great. I need my V

  • John May’s buddy

    I’m watching “V” in Germany, 1st season. It has started very successful, with 19.5% market share in the relevant target group, according to wikipedia. I’m wondering, why the rates were so low in the US. Bad marketing, maybe? The story is good – almost epic imho, like Hamlet or Verdi’s Nabucco -, the characters are excellent… I hope for a 3rd and 4th season.

  • Cyfurkode

    I didn’t do well in America because we have to many people with dead brains who can only relate to Snooki and reality television.

    I from Singapore. I love V and hope there will be a season. I never imagine a sic-fi drama can be that fantastic. Please ABC.

  • juke

    Just about every other day I look on the computer to see if there is going to be a 3rd season. I really enjoyed the original series, but the new one blows it out of the water by far. I really hope they do make a season 3. But like every one has been saying ,if they dont ,at least conclude it, so that were not left hanging and woundering with a million qusetions.

  • Lellylurve

    LOVE V!!!!

  • Collinsburns57

    Like hell the producers want to pull the plug in the middle of an invasion plot. The jntruding Lizards were just warming up. I’d like to see these reptiles exposed along with the New World Order Cabals, and a spectacular global war between Earth’s Militaries and them Fork-tongues!.

  • Lamarref

    its the ONLY show i watch

  • Bmwjpm

    I love this serie on the 80`S hoping for the 3RD season

  • Gary

    Oh Come on . I been waiting ages . The 2 originals were good. But you cannot leave us stuck on season 2 , Why have seasons any how. Un finished work. Stupid! I i done a unfitted job. Id get sacked. 

  • Mosesboyo

    I am new to V, I am not one to sit and watch tv series/shows….but this
    one I absolutely made time for! Could hardly wait for a new episode
    every week! Loved every single episode from season 2. I hope it
    continues and look forward to season 3. :)

  • Abc

    Greetings from Germany, please, please, please give us season 3 ….. !

    I agree, i wasn’t into tv while ago. V actually, as dramatic as it sounds, brought back my interest on series. An ambitious but realistic mega alien take over! There’s this big buzz on internet(recently at it’s pick) on the Reptilians, David Ickle’s credit. Beyond youtube insanity, it has roots on Zulu’s belief of the beginning of times, yep that big.  
    if this is cancelled, damn you illuminati lizards!

  • Deity_kush

    They are also forgetting about the people who downloaded the show like myself. i loved the show but i must say the writers didnt quite bring it hard as they could have on some of season 2s episodes but who cares the show needs a season 3…  they should put David Icke in season 3 and make it more like real life as far as presidents and royal families and banking houses. A more real show will send ratings sky rocketing. Add a few more celebrities as well i.e. sports, pop, rappers, computer moguls etc. that would be the best series litterally ever created in the history of television.

  • Stephane Derenoncourt

    I implore you guys to have a season 3. This is my favorite show and I can’t understand why it doesn’t get the ratings it deserves. I can’t bear the thought of knowing that the way season 2 ended is the definite end because that’s what it feels like. Good must prevail against evil.

  • Cecly Corbett

    If there’s no season 3 they owe us a movie to wrap up the story!

  • wwalley1

    Well I bought season 1 & 2. I thought season 2 could of been different but it was ok. I would like to see a season 3. I also have the V, V: The final battle, and V: The complete series.

  • Yiddoboy

    This show is on way too late so I record it and fast forward through the ad’s Not the best reason to keep it I guess. I have both series on blu-ray. I hope you keep going despite the ratings I love this series. I used to record 24 and look how that turned out!

  • Strictlyweeds

    PLEASE let there be a season 3…Sci.Fi…drama…adventure…V is definately a show worth changing ones schedule for.
