LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Some ABC viewers just had a flashback.

The network ran a promo at the end of Thursday's episode of "FlashForward" letting viewers know the show would return in March -- March 4, to be exact.

The spot was similar to the announcement made at the end of "V" saying the show would return that same month. But while the "V" message met with relief (it's coming back!), the "FlashForward" push is being met with dismay (that long?), especially since fans expected the sci-fi drama to continue in January.

ABC wants to get the show out of the way of the Winter Olympics (February 12-28) and air it straight through without repeats.
