Gosh, will the original cast of Heroes even have screen time next season?

Yet another actor has been hired to join our favorite show: Shalim Ortiz will be joining the cast as an illegal immigrant trying to make it to the USA to be with his sister, played by Dania Ramirez. There's no word yet on super powers for either character, nor how prominent their parts will be.

Early in Heroes first season, Buddy TV reports, creator Tim Kring told various news outlets that he was intending to start each new season with a new set of Heroes involved in their own adventure. Somewhere along the way, he back peddled and said that instead he was going to stick with the current group, which would be no problem for fans of the series of course.

While we have no idea how strong of a role any of these newbies will play, we also don't know for certain who survived the season one finale.

Kring told a group of journalists at the kickoff for the world tour that just because an actor was touring in support of the show did not mean their character survives. The tour, after all, is being conducted to promote the international release of Heroes season one, not season two.

Mohinder: (voiceover) There are many ways to define our fragile existence; many ways to give it meaning. But it is our memories that shape its purpose and give it context. The private assortment of images: fears, loves, regrets… for it’s the cruel irony of life that we are destined to hold the dark with the light, the good with the evil, success with disappointment… this is what separates us, what makes us human. And in the end, we must fight to hold on to.
