Will V be back for a third season? That’s still up in the air as ABC execs decide their new schedule for 2011-12. If you look purely at the ratings, it seems quite likely that V will be cancelled.
V was saved last season, despite lackluster ratings in the latter part of the season. The sci-fi drama ended up averaging a 2.8 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 7.44 million viewers. They were surely hoping that ratings would climb in season two but they didn’t. The 10 episodes averaged a 1.9 rating and 5.49 million viewers, a demo loss of 32% year-to-year.
If ABC does order a third season of V, showrunner and executive producer Scott Rosenbaum has some ideas on how that will happen. Here are a couple brief video interviews from his appearance at WonderCon in San Francisco.
What do you think? Will V be back for season three in the fall, mid-season, or just cancelled? After two seasons on the air, is it reasonable to expect that the ratings could go up?
