When season 4 wrapped in February, it didn’t seem like a move that would indicate a great deal of faith in the show that has continued to slump, putting up 4th place numbers by its finale. Heroes has been on the fence for a while now but nonetheless has continued to survive the axe. That streak has come to an end as NBC has cancelled Heroes.
Even the lack of Leno (and the resulting 5 extra hours) was not enough to save one of the network’s most expensive shows. Apparently, on top of the fact that cheap to produce shows like The Biggest Loser can deliver worthwhile ratings, NBC has a bunch of new shows on the horizon for next season.
So what’s next for Heroes? It may end up getting an additional final episode or so. At some point. Possibly. Certainly would be nice to not leave the show as they have.
