Don’t get too used to watching “V” on Tuesdays when it debuts November 3. ABC has decided to split the season for the fledgling series and will only air the first four episode of the show in 2009.
The remaining episodes will then air in the spring of 2010, probably in March according to the Hollywood Reporter.
ABC has ordered 13 episodes of the re-imagining of the iconic series from the 1980’s.
The series has experienced behind-the-scenes turmoil, leading to a shut down of the series in August. Rumors abounded that the series would be retooled as a mini-series. Production studio Warner Brothers has denied the reports.
Currently, the series has only two completed episodes but it scheduled to resume production on October 4.
“V” will air on ABC on Tuesday, November 3.
