Trivia

In the first two mini-series, the Visitors spoke with an electronically modulated voice. The sound processing, however, was dropped for the ongoing series. This created a continuity problem with the two mini-series as the Visitors were able to infiltrate human strongholds and vice-versa without their different voices giving them away.

The second V (1984) theme was originally written for V: The Final Battle (1984). The producers chose Barry De Vorzon's and Joseph Conlan's music instead for the mini-series, so it was shelved until 1985's V: The Champion (1985) when it it replaced the series' original theme music.

Because the series was canceled, the producers had no way to finish the story because the first season ended with a cliffhanger. Interest in the ongoing comic series had also waned, and it was canceled as well. Thanks to the warning the comic-book writers had received, they were able to write a 2-part story that served as the official ending for both the TV series and the comic-book series: the Leader sends his only child to Earth, who is befriended by the resistance. In spite of the war-minded Visitors plotting an assassination attempt to frame the humans, he was returned safely to the leader, and as a gesture of thanks, he recalled the attacking fleet from Earth.
