NBC has already begun to make unofficial noise about which ones of their shows will be coming back and which will go bye-bye, but so far, still no word on the fate of Heroes. The Hollywood Reporter caught up with Angela Bromstad (left), NBC’s President of Primetime Entertainment and asked her about just that. Unfortunately Bromstad either doesn’t yet know what her network is going to do with the show, or if she knows, she’s not telling. Here’s the Heroes part of the interview.
THR: Let’s run down some of the bubble shows. “Heroes”?
Bromstad: We met with (“Heroes” creator) Tim Kring (last week) and talked about a lot of things. It’s a wait-and-see for us.
THR: If “Heroes” does come back, is there a chance of it being announced as a final season?
Bromstad: We’re going to cross that bridge when we come to it.
There have been a lot of rumors about Heroes coming back or not, and a lot of blogs are making lists about reasons pro and against, but honestly, at the end of the day, it’s up to NBC to decide if the show is worth bringing back, financially speaking. Networks are in the business of making money, and if the show can still make them money, they’ll bring it back regardless of criticisms leveled at the show by fans and loudmouth critics.
We’ll find out when they figure it out, I guess.
