Relive The Awesomeness That Was ‘V’ This Weekend On El Rey Network

Join El Rey Network this weekend for an alien-filled day as they bring back “The Visitors” with fan favorites V: The Original Miniseries and V: The Final Battle beginning Saturday, January 9 at 10am ET/PT. But that’s not all – El Rey Network is offering viewers a chance to relive the thrill every week when the 2009 series remake “V” begins its primetime run with three hours of back-to-back episodes every Tuesday, beginning Tuesday, January 12 at 8pm ET/PT.

Inspired by Sinclair Lewis’ anti-fascist novel It Can’t Happen Here, this legendary series follows what happens when a race of aliens arrive on planet Earth searching for help and friendship. Unfortunately, suspicions arise among a few humans as they try to figure out their “Visitors’” true intentions and plan to resist. The 1983 original, directed and written by Kenneth Johnson (The Incredible Hulk, The Bionic Woman), stars Robert Englund (“A Nightmare on Elm Street”) as Willie, Michael Durrell (Beverly Hills, 90210) as Michael and Jane Badler (Mission: Impossible) as Diana. When the miniseries picks up in 1984, Kenneth Johnson brings back cast favorites to face the visitor’s for once and for all.
