A few months ago, despite low ratings and a decreasing fan base, it looked like NBC was leaning toward giving “Heroes” another season.
Now the odds are more likely that NBC will give the show a pink slip when its 2010-11 schedule is announced next week.
Vulture reports that while the Peacock was once considering ordering a new season of the show to keep in case one of its new drama series didn’t attract an audience, the network is now more confident in its five drama pilots and is ready to cut its losses with “Heroes.”
NBC reportedly wants to give J.J. Abrams’ new series “Undercovers” time to build an audience and not have the specter of “Heroes” hanging over it. And that means we’ll probably never get to meet the cool Samurai Hiro from the future.
Of course, this isn’t official yet and won’t be until NBC announces its full schedule next week.
But it’s increasingly likely that “Heroes” is gone for good.
