James Kyson Lee (aka Ando) was at the One World Live event in Hollywood last night when the folks over at E! Online ran into him. Of course they asked him about the remaining three episodes of Heroes Season 3. Lee was more than happy to spill some details about the remaining episodes, especially the season finale. POSSIBLE SPOILERS after the jump.
Lee starts off by mentioning that “all 10 original members from season three will be back” for the season finale. He then adds:
“We will have a little surprise in store for you… Basically, Ando and Hiro’s goal is to take down whoever is behind Building 26 and take down the bad guys, and both of us are going to try to combine our powers and see if we can make it happen.
Also in the last episode, we’re going to give you a little glimpse into Volume 5… I think tentatively we’re calling it Redemption.”
The “glimpse” he mentioned about volume 5 (“Redemption”) is in keeping with what Heroes has done in the past, which is to give viewers the first few minutes from the next volume, so that’s not really a surprise.
Meanwhile, eagle eye reader Tambin spotted the Heroes Season 3 up for pre-sale over at Amazon.com. It’s still very early, and besides Amazon.com not having a release date, it also looks like they’re using a stand-in image for the DVD cover.
If NBC follows the pattern set by the previous two seasons, they’ll release the Season 3 DVD in late August 2009. Until then, this is just Amazon.com trying to get a jump on letting people pre-order the DVD way, WAY ahead of time.
