UPDATE! The Hollywood Reporter has word that production of a fifth episode of "V" will not commence until AFTER the first four hours air in November and ABC can see how they do in the ratings.
Entertainment Weekly reports that the production hiatus on “V” has been extended from two weeks to six weeks.
ABC will air four hours of the sci-fi drama in November. Any additional episodes won't begin airing until March.
The EW story doesn’t mention whether more than four episodes have been shot at this point. With only four in the can, I can imagine ABC forgetting about airing more in March if the ratings aren’t that great.
“V” debuts Nov. 3. Its Tuesday 8 p.m. competition during sweeps will include “NCIS,” “The Biggest Loser,” “90210” and “So You Think You Can Dance?”
