Adrian Pasdar at MegaCon, Talks Season 3

The answer to the big question left hanging at the end of Season 2 was, “Will Nathan Petrelli (and Adrian Pasdar) return for Season 3″? has been answered, and it’s, “Yes.” Or at least, that’s what Adrian Pasdar said when he attended MegaCon (pictured below), where he dished on the upcoming Heroes Season 3 and from the first-hand account, enthralled the audience with his charm. Obviously he has no reason to lie, unless he’s really clever and Tim Kring is a maniacal mad genius and is forcing him to. So yes, all you Nathan fans, the man himself has all but confirmed it, Nathan will survive his gunshot at the end of the shortened Season 2. Surprised? You shouldn’t be. This is Heroes. This show kills and resurrects more people than Jesus in his heyday.

Here’s more with Pasdar at MegaCon (via):

He inadvertently revealed that Nathan is coming back for season three for various reasons.

A fan asked him if he would like to direct an episode of “Heroes”, and Adrian started to say “Well, I’d like to, but with the shooting schedules usually running ten days, so you’d be putting yourself out for…” in then he kind of trails off realizing that he was saying “Well, I’m gonna be filming, so it’d be hard to direct too” Hahaha. Then he was kind of like “uhhhh…”

He also referenced Nathan constantly in the present-tense.

He jokingly mentioned a ‘theoretical’ scenario for how season two really ended. He was like “the clues were all there for what really happened”. He posed the scenario that Nathan wore a vest — and either
a) knew the attack was coming
b) planned it himself
Both were really interesting, and he really seemed to be pushing them, because the guy who was leading the Q & A (can’t remember his name) was like “You used the word ‘vest’ twice” and Adrian started laughing.

Adrian alluded to the fact that he will have a lot of scenes with Claire next season, and him being a ‘father’ will be really important.

There will be a lot of the Petrelli dynamic in season three, esp. with regards to Nathan and Peter and their mother — trying to bring her back from evil. I think Adrian said she was the “Queen-Bee of the Darkside” or something. We LOL’d.

Season three will be awesome, and will fix the problems with season two. He seemed really optimistic.

Unfortunately, he kind of hinted at the fact that Nathan will, eventually, die. :(

They keep setting Nathan Petrelli up to die in a glorious death and then backing off in the end. It’s getting kind of ridiculous. Either send the guy off in a blaze of glory, or cut this out, Tim Kring. It’s getting old.

    Agrred with louis and heroes fan, but something long to say, dont reveal more of what you have revealed us Mr Pasdar, u may get in trouble with production, you are of my fav characters and actors since you started as Nathan, dont reveal more, I know its essential that your character may die at all, I dont hope that, but its better that Nathan dies for the end of the story, but in an honorable way as Ramon writed in his comment, I mean he must last until last season, what ever may end at date, soo please dont reveal more, It was obvious that he survived the gun shot, and the reason for keeping him alive was CLAIRE and PETER, both of them to be exact, cuase killing Nathan, then what was the point of making him her biological father, and Peter cause their arc are totally related/connected, if one of the bros dies their course could end cause of their relation. If he dies it will be in Peter and Claire’s arms, for me they are the love triangle of the show, similar now with Hiro/Kensei/Yaeko, now that she revealed the spoiler of her in the present time.

    NOTE: Dont reveal more you nor either the 7 original cast, fine the rest for me, but not you, it better if we fans wait, the more wait the better we expect. If Nathan dies HRG has to die before him, and that he is killed by the main villian of the show in the last season and that he dies protecting or saving his brother and daughter in an honorable way, in both their arms, at least dont make his dead (hope he last last season) look stupid, period, my only comment here.

    I cant believe I used to like this show its become so rediculous, Kring cant do a simple thing like kill off a character. Hes such a ballsless writer

    If you want me ill be watching Lost, a show that makes sense with real writers that dont change their mind about storylines after they’ve already aired and can actually kill off a character and leave it behind them.

    And to think I used to be one of the ones defending Heroes in the Lost boards…

    I disagree with your comments, I’ve always liked heroes. The night I saw the first episode my friend and I watched 6 episodes which was all we had. We couldn’t stop watching it until all 6 episodes had been seen. Now season 2 may have sucked bad in multiple ways but I’m not ready to give up on heroes. I’m sure season 3 will have some nice episodes for us to enjoy. If they dump some pathetic characters like Micha and Monica then maybe It will all work out for the best.
