Sadly, the Visitors aren’t among us any longer. After two short seasons, ABC has cancelled their V TV series.
A reimagining of the original V, this series tells the tale of what happens when an advanced alien race arrives of Earth professing their desire to help mankind. Fortunately, not everyone trusts them. The second season features the talents of Charles Mesure, Elizabeth Mitchell as Erica Evans, Joel Gretsch, Laura Vandervoort, Logan Huffman, Morena Baccarin, Morris Chestnut, and Scott Wolf.
For season one, V ended up averaging a 2.25 rating in the coveted 18-49 demographic and 5.7 million average viewers. It was “on the bubble” but ended up being renewed for a 13 episode second season. The network was hoping that the show would catch on and the ratings would improve.
ABC later reduced the episode order to just 10 installments and debuted them mid-season. Unfortunately, ABC’s gamble didn’t pay off. Season two of V ended up averaging only a 1.9 in the demo and 5.49 million viewers.
Though the network and producers maintained that the show was still in contention for next season, it was clear that there would only be a third season of V if ABC was willing to gamble once again. In the end, they weren’t.
ABC confirmed today that V has been cancelled after two seasons and 22 episodes. The series finale aired on March 15th and, unfortunately, there were lots of unresolved cliffhangers. Hopefully the producers will someday share what they had in mind for season three.
What do you think? Are you sad that V won’t be returning next season? Why do you think the series didn’t catch on?

I never did see the series on tv , have been watching on dvd series 1/2 , The series is good , All that I can think is that one critic did not like sci-fi and gave a bad review (an idiot). The series for me 10 out of 10, N0 finish brain bollocked.
I think V was like the original Star Trek series, loved by viewers and ended by ratings. I think it would have been another cult hit show! Fans should have done a mail campaign to bring it back just like they did for Star Trek.
Pleeeeeeeeeeeeease bring it back! It’s 2023 and my first time watching it with only two days left on Tubi until it’s removed. This mini series was definitely a binge watcher. There needs to be a season 3. I have to know what Erica and the new crew will do to stop the V’s. Also, what doom awaits the V’s due to Anna’s decisions as the queen Diana mentioned. What will Erica do when she learns of Tyler’s death??..so many cliffhangers this just doesn’t sit right the public needs answers
I really loved the series of the V’s I don’t like the way it ended with the cliffhangers I wanted more. I wanna see what happens when Erica finds out that Anna has her son killed and I want to know what happens when Erica finds out that Anna has Lisa imprisoned please bring this show back for another season I think now in 2022 or 2023 it would have more viewers than it did in 2009. I wanna see Erica bring Anna down for what she has done.
Please make a season 3 i love the show hated how it ended it would get better ratings now i think. Love it please please
I want another season of the series of the V’s . I really enjoyed it and it left me wanting more I want to know what happens when Erica finds out that Anna had her son killed. And that Erica finds out that Anna has Lisa imprisoned please bring back the show.
I realy hope that I will see another season, bad thing is that actors will be older or not the same… but anyway I hope to see new season I have watched 2 seasons for 3days best alien series
TF.. Where is season 3
ABC that was a stupid decision, I actually loved the show and you cut it?,WOW!!!
I just finished the second season on streaming, and I wanted more!!!
So 11 years have passed and I guess “V” never coming back! How disappointing!! ABC you suck!!
I really felt this series was a hit. I think now in 2022. This type of show will be more interesting then it was ten years ago. I wish they would give it a go because I’m so interested to know what would have happened in season 3.
I totally agree with you I loved the show and I want it to come back.
My goodness. The series is so good that I can’t wait for season 3
Yes but, don;t know is it have a chance to have 3th season some ppl wait from 11 years
Wow! After all these years this page still gets hitch. One of the best sci-fi’s ever made just rewatched it again for about the fifth time in my life since it is such an old series. Sure wish they would bring it back. Maybe some new network or something sell it off to the CW Netflix. It would be a more bigger hit today than it was when it originally aired.
I agree with you. I have been watching it also. I really hope the writer had a third season already written. But the actors and actresses wouldn’t be the same.
