At long last, there is some good news to report. While NBC has officially renewed a couple of its shows for new seasons, there’s this very good news from The Hollywood Reporter as to the fate of “Heroes”:
NBC still has a couple major titles on the bubble for renewal — namely “Chuck” and “Heroes” — but sources indicate both will probably return, with “Heroes” likely receiving a 13-episode “final season” order.
“It is all yet to be debated,” [NBC President Angela Bromstad] said. “Both of those shows make sense with the new shows we’ll be bringing on.”
I know that “probably return” isn’t exactly the same as “will return”, but it’s a major improvement from all the silence we’ve been hearing (as it were) the last few months.
A final 13-episode Season 5? I’m not greedy, I’ll take that over no season.
