UPDATE 3: NBC officially cancelled Heroes. Bummer. More here
UPDATE2: Hold it for a second… on a last minute tweet, Greg Grunberg said this:
Wait a minute!! Fat Lady may have a soar throat!! Stay tuned…
UPDATE: Heroes is likely getting cancelled. The same Greg Grunberg who was so optimistic a while ago twitted about Heroes getting cancelled. Albeit he did it in a semi cryptic way:
The “Fat Lady” is doing her vocal warm-ups!!
We are reviewing all the cancelled shows and renewed shows of the season.
So… if the fat lady is about to sing… that probably means Heroes gets cancelled.
But, a Heroes movie can be in the making.
And this one is not an official announcement, but a statement from Greg Grunberg, one of Heroes Stars.
According to Michael Ausiello, Greg Grunberg told him on the People´s Choice Awards that Heroes is renewed for a fifth season,
Greg Grunberg told Ausiello: “We wrapped yesterday and the [final episode] is nowhere near a series finale, It is cliffhanger-y and exciting, but it is nowhere near an end to a series that people are so invested in. It does not tie everything up in a neat bow… I don’t have any doubt that the show will be back.”
So… it doesn´t matter if ratings aren´t the best… DVD sales, and international audiences are steadily good, so Heroes is renewed.
But, according to Vulture, NBC is cancelling Heroes instead of giving it a new fifth season run. However, the show could get a two or four hour movie wrap up to give the show a closure, in some sort of a Heroes fifth season renewal in a different format.
Apparently, NBC has five nice bets for this season, one of them J.J. Abrams new show, hence making Heroes as a backup plan a waste of money… 5 million hardcore US based fans, and International fans may be the saviors and make NBC gather the money for a two or four hour movie that can close the story and turn into the swan song for Heroes.
Are you happy that Heroes will be renewed for a fifth season according to Greg Grunberg? Or do you trust Vulture when they say it´s cancelled? Would you watch a movielike finale for Heroes?
While Heroes may have been cancelled the full box set has had a DVD release so both old fans and new can relive all the series.
