Heroes Renewed for 2008-2009 Season

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.

More:

“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.

    I’m glad they are not coming back for only a few episodes. I am upset that the story didn’t get farther, but giving me another half of a season would just be pouring salt on the wound. HOORAY! Heroes returning, or should I say VILLIANS returning? Hope they start piling up the bodies first thing when it returns. DEATH TO PARKMAN… Ha ha ha…

    Glad to here about Season 3 coming back for 08-09 because that writing thing was pissing me off. But I had read something about Peter being in a pool of blood, Hiro pinned up by his sword and Matt throat ripped open…I just hope Peter isn’t killed off. But am looking forward to the new villains and level five of the company.But I guess I got to wait till Sept.

    I just had a crazy idea. What if they put Heroes Origins on air in the next couple months before the summer. Crazy idea, but hey I can’t wait that long for heroes either.
