With the Writer’s Strike all over and done with (well, pretty much, there are a couple of little things that has to be ironed out), NBC has announced that their scripted shows will heading back into production, with new episodes scheduled to come out in March and April. Unfortunately that won’t include Heroes, new episodes of which will probably not see the light of day until September 2008, starting with Season 3. And oh yeah, to no one’s surprise, NBC has announced that Heroes has been renewed for the 2008-2009 schedule, thus guaranteeing Season 3. What, you thought they wouldn’t renew the show? Don’t be ridiculous.
Along with Heroes, NBC has also announced the renewal of their cop show Life and their new show Chuck.
“Heroes” is NBC’s #1 series this season in adults 18-49, the #1 Monday series on any network in adults 18-49 and the #1 scripted series on any network in adults 18-34. This season, “Heroes” has averaged a 6.2 rating, 14 share in adults 18-49 and 13.1 million viewers overall.
The Heroes renewal is no surprise, but it’s nice to get it official anyways.
