New Release: V Season 2 Blu-ray and DVD

V: The Complete Second Season scene

Alien queen Morena Baccarin comes down to Earth in V.

Warner Home Video released the science-fiction TV series V: The Complete Second Season on Blu-ray and DVD on Oct. 18, 2011, for the list prices of $49.99 and $39.98, respectively.

Though V was never a ratings blockbuster for ABC, it was not without its fans, who are undoubtedly mourning the fact that it was cancelled several weeks after the season two finale was aired.

A re-imagining of the 1980s TV series that’s now considered a cult favorite, the sci-fi thriller V tells the story of an alien race — “the visitors” or “V’s,” for short — that drops in on Earth to hang out with the Terrans. Though the cosmic travelers claim to come in peace (and they provide lots of advanced technology to prove it!), there are lots of humans who simply don’t trust the visitors. So, they form a rebellion group to investigate the aliens’ true motives, which, of course, aren’t quite so pure.

V’s second season reveals alien leader Queen Anna’s (Morena Baccarin, Death in Love) master plan to claim Earth as her own. Meanwhile, FBI Counterterrorism Agent Erica Evans (Elizabeth Mitchell, TV’s Lost), conflicted visitor Ryan Nichols (Morris Chestnut, Boyz N The Hood), disillusioned priest Father Jack Landry (Joel Gretsch, Push) and others join the resistance fighting unit known as the Fifth Column in an attempt to put a stop to the visitors before it’s too late.

In addition to all the season’s 10 episodes, the two-disc Blu-ray contains an extra hour of bonus content, including two behind-the-scenes featurettes, a gag reel and a collection of deleted scenes (which also are on the DVD).
