ABC makes new plans for their genre TV series.
December 4, 2009 – When V ran its last episode, ABC had a promo at the end saying the series would return in March. The network now has set the specific date for the show, and while it’s still in March, it’s barely so – March 30th.
That will keep V on Tuesday nights, but the show will now be airing at 10:00pm – right after Lost. That’s right, it’ll often be Elizabeth Mitchell Tuesdays, as both her series (while no longer a regular, she’s expected to make several appearances on Lost‘s final season) will run on the same network, on the same night, back-to-back.
Juliet, meet Erica. Erica, meet Juliet. If you’re an Elizabeth Mitchell fan (and we at IGN TV are), Tuesday nights are for you
The notable mid-season break for V has been known (and debated) for some time now, but ABC has surprised viewers by also now announcing a big break for FlashForward
That series ran its final episode of the year this week, but instead of returning with new episodes next month, as originally expected, FlashForward will also be off the air until March. New episodes will begin airing Thursday, March 4.
ABC touts that holding both series until March will allow both to run uninterrupted for the remainder of the season – but obviously fans will still bemoan going so long between new episodes.
