The Return of V on MSN

Here’s a first: a TV feature on the series V for MSN. I visited the set of V and talked to all eight leads in the show to put together preview of the upcoming eight episodes of the series.

The cast of "V"

It came in like an invasion, striking out of nowhere and demanding our attention, and then retreated for months. But now they’re back with a vengeance. They are V, the visitors from outer space, and they come in peace. Always.

The final eight episodes of the first season of “V” begin March 30 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on ABC, and they have their work cut out for them. We left the show with multiple cliffhangers, a brewing war and an armada of V spaceships pointed straight at Earth. And after a four-month hiatus, it’s working overtime to win back its audience with a very eventful story line. “There will be a character of significance who dies in the next eight episodes,” promises executive producer Steve Pearlman (he won’t say who, of course; oddsmakers, place your bets), plus a number of new characters, including a mercenary who joins the resistance group. And if you thought the first four episodes were eventful? “Wait until you see these next eight,” teases co-star Morris Chestnut. “They’re really going for the ‘wow’ moment in every single episode.”

Here’s the complete feature on MSN. The first new episode plays Tuesday, March 30, right after Lost on ABC.
