Heroes has delivered a lot of great moments during its four-year run, but some are more pivotal to the show’s mythos than others. In honor of the show’s vastly entertaining four seasons, and in celebration of the upcoming Season 4 on DVD, here are the Top 4 Most Pivotal Moments from the show’s four seasons. Let us know what you think, and what are your Top 4 moments from the show.
With Heroes Season 5 dead and buried, there are still the chance of a final send-off movie or two. If Heroes creator Tim Kring has his way, he’d like to finish up with a mini-series that would take place a year after Claire has revealed her powers to the world media, as seen at the end of Season 4.
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.
The following is all speculation, so do not take it as fact. But according to one source, NBC now seems less likely to renew Heroes for a fifth season, or even for the previously hoped for 13-episode “wrap up” mini-season. Instead, the best case scenario has Heroes fans settling for either a 2-hour or a 4-hour TV event designed to wrap up all the show’s loose ends. At least, that’s according to The Vulture blog.
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”:
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:
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.
The question on everyone’s mind post-”Brave New World” is an obvious one: “Will Heroes be renewed for a fifth season?” That’s a question on a lot of people’s minds, including The Hollywood Reporter, who spoke to industry insiders and came up with a 60% chance that the show will be renewed for another season. But according to THR, if the show does end up being renewed, it could very well be for a limited number of episodes to close out the show for good.
Here is your official discussion thread for tonight’s new (and the last of Season 4) episode, 4.19, “Brave New World”. After this episode, we’ll have to sit back and wait for NBC to officially announce if they will renew the show for a fifth season, or if this will be the series finale. Time will tell. Until then…
This is it, folks, the final episode of Heroes Season 4. Everything that’s happened all year long has been leading up to this moment, with Samuel preparing to enact his master plan, while Peter and Sylar race to stop him. Will they? Who knows, but it should be fun. Here is your preview for Heroes 4.19, “Brave New World”.
