How does the "V" story end? Fans likely will not get to know through a wrap-up television movie.
The main actors of the recently cancelled series have already moved on to new projects, thus reuniting them for another shot at the Mother Ship just isn't going to happen. And that includes Joel Gretsch, the one-time "The 4400" star, who said he was surprised to see ABC pull the plug after just two seasons.
"It's unfortunate [because] I think we still had some good stories to tell," Gretsch recently told TV Line. "If we got another season, it would have been amazing. I saw [executive producer] Scott Rosenbaum a few weeks before we got cancelled, and he told me they were pitching some great ideas to the network and the studio ... pretty compelling stuff."
Unfortunately, "V" just couldn't hold on to its audience. Despite a budget cut that helped it earn a second season, "V's" audience fell more than 38 percent from the previous year and finished No. 75 overall with fellow ABC show "Shark Tank" and the NBC series "Chuck."
It might be almost impossible to get a wrap-up movie together, but it would be nice to see one, Gretsch said.
"The longer you wait, the chances of that happening aren't very good," he said. "But it's a great idea though, isn't it?"
Gretsch played Father Jack in the series that also starred Morena Baccarin (from "Firefly" and "Stargate: SG-1") and Elizabeth Mitchell from "Lost."
The show also featured the return of Jane Badler in a slightly modified role from the original "V," where she played Diana -- a role similar to Baccarin's Anna. This Diana was different, considering the 2009 version of "V" was a reboot from the 1980s version, and was done without the input of the franchise's original creator, Kenneth Johnson.
