The wait is over! ABC's V
returns tonight, picking up where it left off last May. To recap: the sky is red, Anna's angry, and Erica has destroyed the alien eggs. And then there's Chad Decker (AKA former Party of Five
heartthrob Scott Wolf), the smarmy newsman who is Anna's henchman — until he realizes the horrific things she's done. Now that he's realized Anna's evil nature, will he switch sides?
A few months ago, I went on location to the Vancouver set of V, as the stars filmed the season two premiere, "Red Rain." Between takes, Scott Wolf sat down to chat about what's to come for Chad and the show. He admits that the series got off to a rocky start last year, but assures us that it's picking up steam. Read on, as he teases the new season, gabs about his new TV obsession, and shares his dream TV dad.
How's the second season so far?
Scott Wolf: It's so good to be back — so much better than the alternative! I don't think it's any secret that we had our bumps in the road last year, and I think any first year series probably experiences some of that. It's a huge show with a giant cast, an epic story, and a big mythology, so I think having everyone on the same page was difficult last year. This year, it's completely different. It just feels like they've used the time to figure out all the things that they may not have figured out before.
What can we expect to happen to Chad in the coming episodes?
SW: In the very first episode, in the season premiere, we see Chad for the first time truly declare his allegiance to one side.
Were you expecting for him to choose the way he did?
SW: No, it doesn't come as a huge surprise. But what is the most fun about the position he's in, is he's in the middle and has access to both . . . what I can say is, it takes a minute before we see Chad and Anna in the same room again, and a lot changes between the last time they saw each other and this time, so I'm interested to see what their dynamic is, moving forward.
