"V" Producer Teases Season 3 Possibilities

 Scott Rosenbaum, executive producer of "V", appeared recently at San Francisco´s Wonder Con 2011, and gave an update to Assignment X on where the show stands regarding its renewal on ABC.

“We do not know about a third season at this point” he admitted.

 However, Rosenbaum is hopeful that the show gets renewed and is already planning possible storylines to develop if he gets the chance on season 3.

He revealed:

“I am most excited about it more than I have ever been, because [V] has gotten to a place at the end of this season, the closest to what I wanted it to be.
 Now we have a situation where you have a realistic human resistance that actually has a possible shot of defeating the Visitors. Whereas before it was a motley crew of four or five with a priest, an FBI agent. It was sort of like the rebels in Libya fighting – they are never going to win. The only way they have a chance is with an organized military complex behind them. I like that. That is very exciting to me. Now we can see them make a real dent in Anna’s plans.”

 The producer indeed revealed that his plans for "V" were much more in the line of the developments shown in the last episodes of the season rather than what he was told to write for the show previously.

 “The pacing of the shows will be very much like that last episode, they all will be peddle to the metal and tons of story and excitement. That’s more the style that I prefer as a writer and I was actually pulled back to a style that I was uncomfortable with. My voice as a writer is much more like that last episode than the ones you saw before because I was asked to slow things down. I didn’t believe that was the way to go but I did the best I could. I can’t wait, I’m excited about [a potential Season 3].”
 Rosenbaum feels confident that "V" has a shot at coming back next season and is looking forward to explore the evolution of the storylines:

“I pushed the characters to a place emotionally where I am excited about it. Erica is going to find out her son was murdered and what that’s going to do to her will be fascinating to watch. Other characters have died, the stakes are high, Anna knows she’s almost been betrayed, Anna’s real daughter is locked in a dungeon, Anna knows there is a real chance that other Vs may revolt as well and so her timeline is shrinking so she had to move faster and quicker for her plans to work.
 Now that we have seen the Visitors we can see a lot more of them. There is a whole bit of mythology about the second part of their plan that we could get into. That I don’t want to give all away because that will be fun to watch.”

Are you hoping "V" returns with new episodes next year?
