V: The new Diana is Cast

Good news for any V fans out there; the new show has its Diana, and it's a very familiar face in the V world...

That's right: Jane Badler (the OLD Diana) will be playing the NEW Diana.

Source

Edit: Can a mod edit the title so that it says "V: The new Diana is cast"?

It's true; the official V facebook page confirmed it with the following message:

Re: V: The new Diana is Cast

Does this now make NuV a sequel series, like OldV happened and then the Visitors and their actions were erased from the timeline, or perhaps oldV and Diana happened in an alt dimension??

Wait, that's way too creative for NuV. Christ, I wish now we got V The Second Generation.

Re: V: The new Diana is Cast

^ The way that the writers have played things up til now has been to treat things as if this is the Vs first * official * visit to Earth, even though we know that they (the Vs) have had 'sleeper scouts' on-planet for quite a while. Because of the way things have been played, I don't think it's very likely that the new V will be revealed to be a sequel/continuation of the old V, but I could be completely wrong. Only time will tell, but in the meantime, I do think it would be a mistake for fans and non-fans to go into the season expecting the two Dianas to be the same character, since, if it doesn't happen, I fear that the backlash could end up dooming the new show or casting a pall over it.

Before the title was changed, I thought you were talking about a new Wonder Woman being cast...

Re: V: The new Diana is Cast

^ I figured something like that was going to happen, hence why, as soon as I realized that I'd forgot to add the 'V' to the title, I asked that a mod change it so that there was no confusion.

I found the news release and was a bit confused by this part:

“V,” which received an Emmy Award nomination for Outstanding Special Visual Effects for a Series
Are we even talking about the same show here?

ABC has now released an official press release about Jane's return, which you can find here.

As someone who was a big Jane Badler fan in the '80s, this will definitely keep me watching

Re: V: The new Diana is Cast

They should have had her all along! I don't know why they didn't try and bring in some of the old cast sooner or if they weren't going to do the Second Generation, at least make some sort of connection to the original. Everyone is trying to make hip reboots and crap but if they did make some sort of alternate timeline or secret connection that would be worth watching now.

They said they were going to break the show up into 'pods' and do mini arcs, but this should have been in the first 6 out the door!
