[via press release from ABC]


They Return Tuesday, March 30, in a New Timeslot after "Lost"

It's Us vs. Them -- The visitors have arrived, but what is their plan for the human race? One thing is certain: Every person's life will change as the fate of the planet hangs in the balance. "V" is the highest-rated new drama series on television, and this is your chance to get caught up on it. Be ready when THEY return! "V: The Arrival," a special clip show from the first four episodes, airs TUES., MARCH 23 (10:06-11:00 p.m., ET) on ABC. The series returns Tues., March 30 (10:00-11:00 p.m., ET).

While the world quickly became fascinated with the Vs and their link to wonders just beyond the reach of human understanding, FBI Counter Terrorist Agent Erica Evans (Elizabeth Mitchell) discovered a secret hidden beneath the skin of every V � a secret that may threaten the lives of everyone close to her. Yet for her teenage son, Tyler (Logan Huffman), the Vs were his ticket to something big and hopeful -- a new chance for mankind to unite in common goals. To Chad Decker (Scott Wolf), a career-hungry news anchor, his exclusive interview with Anna (Morena Baccarin), the leader of the Vs, was crucial to his desire to dominate the airwaves. Also unsure about the Visitors was Father Jack (Joel Gretsch), a priest who questioned his own faith in the wake of the Visitors' arrival. Seeking answers outside the church, Father Jack learned there were other dissidents who believed the Visitors were not who they said they were, including Ryan Nichols (Morris Chestnut), who was faced with his own life-altering decision when the Vs showed up. Never has there been more at stake -- it truly was the dawning of a new day.

In the last cliffhanger episode, several key plot and character points were revealed: Erica had lost her control over Tyler as she discovered he was now on the Mothership with Anna and Lisa (Laura Vandervoort), and she also learned that Ryan was a Visitor; Father Jack was stabbed by the Vs' security guard from the warehouse, where evidence of experimenting on humans had been discovered; Valerie (Lourdes Benedicto) revealed that she's pregnant by Ryan (carrying a 1/2 alien, 1/2 human baby); and Chad, while doing a report on the Vs' healing center, had himself medically scanned and was told he has a potentially fatal aneurysm in his brain � will he let the Vs cure him and be indebted to them?

Television's No. 1 new drama this season in the key Adult 18-49 sales demographic, "V" delivered substantial year-to-year improvement in Tuesday's highly-competitive 8:00 p.m. hour, boosting ABC by 48% in the time period during its November Sweep run (4.3/11 vs. 2.9/7). Opposite established competition, including CBS' time-slot veteran "NCIS" and NBC's "Biggest Loser," "V" finished No. 1 in its hour among Adults 18-34 and key Men (M18-34/M18-49).

The series stars Elizabeth Mitchell as Erica Evans, Morris Chestnut as Ryan Nichols, Joel Gretsch as Father Jack, Lourdes Benedicto as Valerie, Logan Huffman as Tyler Evans, Laura Vandervoort as Lisa, with Morena Baccarin as Anna and Scott Wolf as Chad Decker. "V" is produced by The Scott Peters Company and HDFilms in association with Warner Bros Television. Scott Rosenbaum, Scott Peters, Steve Pearlman, and Jace Hall are executive producers. "V" is broadcast in 720 Progressive (720P), ABC's selected HDTV format, with 5.1 channel surround sound. A TV parental guideline will be assigned closer to airdate.
