ABC cuts V down to just 10 episodes

We just heard some bad news about V—and we don't mean for its fictional characters, who face a lizardy invasion of Earth—but for us. ABC has decided that 13 isn't a lucky number after all and has cut back its episode order for the series' second season.

According to Deadline:

I hear the order of ABC's sophomore sci-fi drama V is being reduced from 13 to 10 episodes. ABC last week announced that V will return January 4 and will air in Dancing with the Stars' result show slot at 9 PM on Tuesdays, following fellow sci-fi drama No Ordinary Family. That gives V a 12-episode window until the spring season premiere of Dancing on March 29, but I hear the period is expected to include 2 preemptions, leading to V's order getting trimmed. Since the series is still filming, V producers will adjust the storyline for a proper season ending.

We don't know what this means for the future of the series, but we're disappointed the resistance will have three fewer chances to save the world this season.

How about you?
