In what has to be considered both a coup and an instance of real inspiration, Jane Badler – who played V leader Diana in the original miniseries and series – has joined ABC’s new incarnation of the alien invasion show as mother to Morena Baccarin’s alien leader, Anna.

Badler will join the series for its second season premiere. Her recurring guest-starring role will be just the first move in a second season that will, according to today’s press release, feature “more character and lizard reveals, more details about the Vs’ mythology – in which Badler will play an important role — and more action and more plot twists.”

V stars Elizabeth Mitchell as Erica Evans, Morris Chestnut as Ryan Nichols, Joel Gretsch as Father Jack, Charles Mesure as Kyle Hobbes, Logan Huffman as Tyler Evans, Laura Vandervoort as Lisa, with Morena Baccarin as Anna and Scott Wolf as Chad Decker.
