NBC Officially Cancels Heroes; TV Movie Still Possible

After weeks of keeping fans on pins and needles, and a whole lot of speculation about what the silence means, NBC has finally put us out of our misery, and made a decision.

Heroes has been canceled.

I’ll be honest with you, I expected it to happen. So, what about that 2-hour/4-hour movie event to wrap things up? Deadline, which has insider info on the matter, says that is still a possibility:

NBC sources now tell me that the network is “working on a way to wrap up the show. That will be determined after the upfront.” Other insiders explain to me that NBC will soon commit to that 2-hour or 4-hour special event in midseason to reward Heroes fans.

Well it’s over, but it’s not COMPLETELY over.

More news on the TV movie event as we get them.

  • Heroes_lover

    Amen to that!!

  • bethflood

    Well, this totally sucks! Why do networks invest so much time & money getting us interested in a show, just to rip it out from under us?

  • Menstruator

    Please… Do one more season…

  • mada

  • nightmare

    Disappointing news, one of the few series I enjoyed.


    FINALLY! Although I really enjoyed Season 1, it has been all downhill from there. THANK YOU NBC FOR RENEWING CHUCK!!!

  • Rita Kern

    Dammit, I'm so tired of investing myself totally in a series only to have it cancelled! Maybe I'll just stop watching tv totally.

  • Rita Kern

    I wish some other network would take this series over…too good of a story line, actors/acresses and some writers to just cancel for good.

  • backarama

    I love Heroes and all… but I have to admit, I have found a new love:
    Watch it. Live it. Love it.

  • jmelo

    Since heroes is dead now so is NBC in my life that was the only show i actually watched! I as well will boycot NBC there is nothing worth watching to me on that network NOW!

    I am now swearing off any series on any network. Movies, specials, reality tv, sci fi, food channel and hgtv but no series on any network. I get sucked in and it ends. I like miniseries. Beginning middle and wrapped up end.

    I have to say, that despite how depressing this news is, it's not like this wasn't seen coming a mile away. Now everyone is ranting about how horrible NBC is, but again, this is something I figured out a long time ago. What I really believe is that instead of just moaning on this forum about how this sucks, I'd like to see someone saying something optimistic about the movie idea. May I point out the success of the Stargate SG-1 movies which aired shortly after the series was canceled? A third movie is already in production, I believe. Something like this is still possible for Heroes, but only if the fans don't give up. Isn't anyone else interested in the thought of Heroes becoming a series of movies? The Heroes franchise could flourish with something like this, but it's never going to happen if all the fans do is give up.

  • Arthur

    Maybe a real stupid question, but why doesn't Tim Kring go in search for another Broadcastingstation or isn't that possible due to contracts?
    This really SUCKS!!

    Dear NBC, I've decided to give you a chance to rethink your decision, if your answer changes, I promise that we wont judge you, we will only try our best to forgive you for this horrid crime you have committed.

    That is all.

    So sad heroes ended , i was hearin about it till i started watchin season 1 a few days ago and now im done wit it and it clearly sayin “to be continued” but as i learned no more

  • Kevan

    Hmmm, how does the old song go?

    “No more heroes anymore”….

    I'm sad it has been dropped but I do feel it ought to have been wound up properly during this fourth (last season). Like so many other good stories I do feel that the producers didn't quite know that it's good to quit while you are ahead instead of dragging things out.

    Like others I think a 2 or 3 hour tv movie/mini series would be a fitting end to it to round things off.

    I hate to see this go my kids and friends came over overy Monday to watch this show on the big screen. I loved this show! NBC made to many mistakes with it but I thought maybe they were going to tie those all in to eachother.
