Hello all, a huge piece of news came to light today when it was revealed that writer/producers Jesse Alexander and Jeph Loeb were leaving the show due to "creative differences".
It may be due to fans and critics being all over the show since the start of Season 3, and the season has continued to lose ratings.
Here is the full report from Variety:
Big shakeup on the staff of NBC's "Heroes" came down on Sunday with the axing of co-exec producers Jesse Alexander and Jeph Loeb.
Both scribe-producers had been with the show since its first season and were known to have led the day-to-day production operation under the direction of creator/exec producer Tim Kring.
"Heroes" produced by Universal Media Studios, has struggled in the ratings its third season. It's understood that Alexander and Loeb were let go because of Peacock execs' frustration with the creative direction of the show. The show is also said to have been grappling with hefty budget overruns this season, that are going well beyond its already sizable $4 million per-seg pricetag.
What do you guys think? Do you think the show needs new writers/producers and a new direction?
I'm quite satisfied and feel the show has been going well so far. Season 3 is definitely better than Season 2 and I expect more interesting plots to be revealed.
Feel free to share your thoughts on the subject, I'm curious as to what fans might have to say about the show.
