Cancellation Buzz: Heroes' Greg Grunberg Says Show May Be Finished - Featured

Well, Heroes fans, we've been keeping an eye on Heroes' status as the ratings and viewership continue to drop causing cancellation to possibly be looming in its future, and it looks like it just might be in more trouble than we thought!


The New York Post reports that Greg Grunberg, who stars as Matt Parkman, wrote on Twitter Sunday, "'Winding down shooting Season 3 Heroes. Tough to say goodbye to crew not knowing if any or all of us will return next year. Hope all.'"


This made it pretty clear the cast is worried about the show continuing and are not getting a lot of assurance that the show will be safe.


Grunberg did a little back-pedaling after that message on Twitter became a big buzz with fans saying, "'Don't get me wrong, Heroes IS coming back next year, but some crew take other jobs, so it's tough.'"


It's possible Grunberg really was focusing on this possible shift in Heroes staff, but with the show cancellation rumors, lack of renewal so far, and ratings just getting worse and worse, my guess is the cast is indeed worried about the fate of the show (as they should be)!

It's not being canceled because it sucks, it's being canceled because it's fans started thinking they were too good for it.

Accept it. The show is starting to get annoying. The plot is going ballistic and repeating storylines make it much worse. Why don't they think of a new plot or maybe get more plot from the original x-men? (I figured they got the idea from it anyway) Why can't they think of an amazing plot like for example "LOST"?

I hope they find help soon.

I say let it be cancelled and be remembered for what was once a great show and not the rubbish that is being dished up to us at the moment.

Amen roboticeye, amen. I can't believe the whole switcharound in loyalty of the fans. It really angers me that an awesome show like Heroes is getting such lacklustre viewership and such derogatroy comments about it.
The storylines quite clearly AREN'T being repeated, despite the short-sighted views of oh, say about, 1/2 of disgruntled viewers, you'd think such esteemed 'critics' would recognise a set-up for a plot-twist. Yes there are analogies and mirroring of the first series, but again these are classic storey-telling techniques, and a sign of good writing. Ok a few characters are starting to get annoying (read Suresh) but the vast majority of the characters HAVE evolved in a believable way. Yes they have depowered Hiro, and made Peter less powerful, but it's causing an interesting character dynamic between Hiro and Ando (hero and sidekick switch roles, although I do agree Hiro does get a little whiney every now and then, but wouldn't you?) and Peter's character WAS previously overpowered. If Peter had retained his earlier power it would've caused the plot to deteriorate rather than evolve believably (like it HAS) since the villains would have to be more and more powerful to the point where they become completely and utterly unbelievable (since everytime Peter would meet a character he would gain their power too).
I would hate for such an innovative and clearly under-rated show (in the States at least, since it garners a high viewership in the UK compared to our population) to be cancelled, especially in view of the fact that pointless and effortless junk TV like Big Brother, America's Next Top Model, I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here, etc, etc, have made it through a ridiculous amount of seasons, when in plain and simple talk, they're utter crap.

i just read that an NBC exec says the show is renewed for another season! YATTAH!for two reasons:it's NBC's #2 show among young viewers (behind The Office) and the show has a strong global following, even if the numbers in America aren't extraordinary.

Hero's lost its charm because it got old and failed to evolve fast enough to keep our interest. Unless it goes through some sort of dramatic change I don't see its ratings from dropping let alone having them go up.

tim kring said season 4 would be a reboot of sorts, making a fresh start is what the series needs. learning about the characters and watching them grow is what made season 1 so great.
