ABC has announced that Badler will play Diana, mother to Morena Baccarin's Anna on the second-year sci-fi drama, making her first appearance in the yet-to-be-announced fall premiere.
Badler is best known as hamster-devoring V-leader Diana in the original '80s miniseries and subsequent TV series. She's also known, in certain circles, as a former Miss New Hampshire.
ABC proudly boasts that "V" delivered time period improvement in two slots last year, even winning its slots among men 18-34 and men 18-49. The show was also nominated for a special effects Emmy.
