Cancellation Buzz: Is Heroes Cancelled?


The Cheerleader might not be saved after all.


New York Magazine is reporting that NBC will almost certainly not be renewing Heroes, and that Season 4 was probably the last for the once hit series.


As New York notes, this is actually somewhat surprising, because many believed NBC was going to bring the series back for a 13-episode final season. Even though the ratings had dropped dramatically in the past couple of years, for the ratings-starved NBC, Heroes still represented a series with a core fanbase of about five million - and a potential midseason show, to plug in if needed next year.

Good. Needed to happen. Heroes fell off. Hard.

It was mediocre to begin with, and got worse every episode. It just needs a single short film to finish it off and tie up loose ends

It was okay to begin with but no where as good as 4400. NBC killed 4400 on USA so they could push heroes which had more of an appeal with the masses. Heroes was a redo of 4400 with the intent to gain more of a mainstream following. They just kept 4400 around long enough to garnish some viewers and then axed it.4400 was a much better written show with a large amount of social commentary, yet it wasn't heavy handed. Not to mention the science was much more sound. In Heroes a single gene gave people superpowers (Plz!) and in 4400 it was a new neurotransmitter that unlocked unused parts of the brain giving the person powers. I also liked the add on that you had a 50 percent chance of dying if you took Promicin to give yourself powers but if you were left-handed you had a 90 percent chance of surviving. The mythology of the show was bad ass.
