No More Mohinder: Sendhil Ramamurthy Leaves 'Heroes'


Heroes just isn't getting any better, but this is one change that could really go either way for the series. Though he's been a mainstay cast member since season one, actor Sendhil Ramamurthy, who plays scientist Mohinder Suresh, is leaving the cast. Ramamurthy's voice-overs have been an integral part of the show during its four-season run, and have appeared in most of series' episodes.


This of course raises the question: is Heroes dead? The show hasn't been looking good for a while since its dismal season four, which only averaged at about 5.22 million viewers. There's been speculation that the series would be renewed for a fifth and final season, but there's also been speculation that season four will be the last.


Ramamurthy's departure can't spell good things for the series. If they're letting such an important character go, you know that the series can't be much of a priority for NBC.


So what is Ramamurthy going to be doing now that he's gotten out of Heroes? That's a good question, though the actor is currently frustrated that his London acting friends aren't getting any good jobs. "There's actually nothing for them to audition for," he said. "It's such a shame when talented people are not allowed to do what they want to do because of money."


What do you think? Has Ramamurthy's departure left Heroes high and dry? Or do you think the starving sci-fi series can continue on without Mohinder Suresh?

As a Heroes fan from day one I have to say the last season was painful to watch. I think Mohinder leaving is a sign that the show that once stole my heart has come to an end. Its really quite a shame since I believed it had great potential to be a long running show. I do know however that even when I tried to get friends interested in season 2 they had alot of trouble understanding anything that was going on, which I believe was the shows biggest downfall.. The blame goes to the shows writers and thats all there is to it.. All of the actors performed admirably and I will always be their fans but whatever took place in that writing room will forever break my heart...I hope that heroes will deliver at least one final season... but I also hope the dolphins will win the superbowl...pipe dreams...."This quest. This need to solve life's mysteries. In the end, what does it matter when the human heart can only find meaning in the smallest of moments? They're here. Among us. In the shadows. In the light. Everywhere. Do they even know yet?", Mohinder Suresh...I will miss you guys :..(

I think Mohinder has already kind of faded in the background somewhat. His character hasn't been the same strong lead character since he injected himself and gave himself abilities. So, I'm not worried about him leaving, as far as it meaning the shows over. I think they have been already fading him out anyway. As a matter of fact, I think that the way season four ended, left it wide opento introduce a whole new spin and maybe even characters to the show. One of which will, I'm sure, fill Mohinders role in some way. With the whole world watching live, even old daddy can't cover that one up. So what happens now? We'll see in season five. :o)

I never liked him so its fine. I don't know if he's suppose to play a dull role or its bad acting.

I don't understand why Heroes gets such a bad rep, I've enjoyed ever series so far and for a show about people with super powers it is remarkably believable, especialy in comparison to other big american series eg. Lost. It would be criminal if Heroes doesn't get to have a final series especialy after an awesome cliff hanger when Lost managed to drag on for a full 7 series leaving so many plot holes, unexplained and simply forgotten about, ridiculous storylines (moving the island).
Heroes has managed to make 4 series of quality storylines without going over the top or getting to convoluted take Flashforward as another example, already, only half way through the first season plot lines are already becoming ridiculous but then in fairnes a series loosely based on quantem physics, Schrödinger's cat and the observer effect was bound to get "entangled".
So anyway getting back to my main point compared to many other offerings I think Heroes has been one of the best shows for a long time and truly deserves it's final series.
