ABC has announced the premiere date for their re-imagining of the 1980′s sci-fi series called V.

The airdate we can now all start looking forward to is Tuesday, November 3rd at 8:00 p.m., ET/PT.

Below is the press release description of ABC’s outline of the show:

V is a re-imagining of the 1980s miniseries about the world’s first encounter with an alien race. Simultaneously appearing over every major city in the world, the Visitors (or V’s) promote a message of peace. Through their generous offer to share advanced technology, the V’s build a following that may actually hide a more malevolent agenda, one that twists a very deep component of human nature — devotion.

While the world quickly becomes fascinated with the V’s and their link to wonders just beyond the reach of human understanding, FBI Counter Terrorist Agent Erica Evans (Elizabeth Mitchell) discovers 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 V’s are 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 V’s, is crucial to his dominating the airwaves. Also unsure about the Visitors is Father Jack (Joel Gretsch), a priest questioning his faith in the wake of the Visitors’ arrival. Seeking answers outside the church, Father Jack discovers there are other dissidents who believe the Visitors are not who they say they are, including Ryan Nichols (Morris Chestnut), who is faced with his own life-altering decision when the V’s show up. Never has there been more at stake — it truly is the dawning of a new day.

V also stars Lourdes Benedicto as Ryan’s fiancee, Valerie, and Laura Vandervoort as Lisa, an alluring Visitor who sets her sights on Tyler.

V is produced by The Scott Peters Company and HDFilms in association with Warner Bros. Television. Scott Peters (The 4400, The Outer Limits), Jeffrey Bell (Day Break, Alias), Steve Pearlman (Reunion, Related) and Jace Hall are executive producers. The pilot was directed by Yves Simoneau (Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee, The 4400).

  1. epic fail. jk. Actually really looking forward to this I’m a big fan of laura vandervoort and ‘inara’

  2. I have to give ABC a little bit of props.Even though they are rehashing an old idea with this show,it might actually be decent and watchable.

    It seems that with all of the new dramas that they are premiering,they are trying to put a nail in NBC’s coffin,since they pretty much gave up on this upcoming season.

  3. Sounds like they’re attempting to follow in the same vein as BSG and of course aliens are big this year,,,

    I would say that the Vistors are twisting the human concept of trust more than devotion,,, :-)

  4. I’m definitely interested to check this out. Hope they do the series justice.

  5. Hey there just wanted to give you a quick heads
    up. The words in your post seem to be running off the screen in Ie.
    I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but I thought I’d post to let you know.

    The style and design look great though! Hope you
    get the problem resolved soon. Cheers
