Heroes Season 2 and Origins Air Dates Revealed

It’s official: at today’s press conference, Tim Kring revealed that the second season of Heroes will have a shorter break than season 1, and will air its season finale mid-April. After which, “Origins” would air its six episodes in six straight weeks, concluding in May. Basically, Heroes will still go on vacation midway through its second season, but the wait will be MUCH SHORTER this time. (No idea just how much shorter, but DEFINITELY shorter than the long wait of season 1.) Also, according to Collider.com, second 2 will not be just 2 volumes, but rather three volumes.

Collider also has an interview with Tim Kring, in which he explains his decision to divide the second season into different volumes. Don’t expect major cliffhangers with each one, but there will be noticeable stops and starts. Apparently the idea seems to be to make it easier for newer viewers of Heroes to jump on board.

And via AICN, the cast of Heroes will be going on a Heroes nation-wide tour.

“The Heroes World Tour,” underwritten by Nissan (which also sponsored NBC’s original airing of the series’ pilot and provided a memorable piece of product placement in season one), will take members of the cast to at least seven cities in seven countries – Tokyo, Hong Kong, Singapore, Munich, Paris, London and New York – to promote the release of the series’ first season on DVD and HD-DVD. The week-long tour will kick off Aug. 28, the day the season-one sets hit shelves.

ADDED:

According to this, although he was listed as being at the press conference, Leonard Roberts didn’t show up. Hmm…
