The Hollywood Reporter has updated their list of shows currently on the network bubble (that is, shows that can go either way — cancellation or renewal), and while Heroes remains a mystery (NBC still refuses to make a decision on it), THR does give Heroes fans room for optimism. They write about the show’s chances:
On NBC, “Heroes” is the network’s biggest question mark, with the Peacock strongly considering a final-season order. Like every bubble show, the quality of the network’s pilots will play a key role in deciding how many shows return.
Meanwhile, Ali Larter was at WonderCon over the weekend to promote her new movie “Resident Evil: Afterlife”, and when asked about the show’s possible return for a Season 5, she sounded optimistic, but guarded. Here’s what she said (via Aceshowbiz):
“I believe we are coming back for Heroes next season. I think so. I’m not sure. It’s been such a thrill being on that show. I hope we have the chance to wrap up these storylines for all the fans.”
Ali Larter’s Tracy Strauss didn’t exactly have a whole lot to do in the last season, especially towards the end, but I’m sure fans appreciate her loyalty to the show despite that. With a thriving movie career, she could have easily said, “Eh, whatever”, and moved on, but she didn’t, which makes me like her even more.
