BBC Two has struck a deal with NBC that will give the British channel first refusal on future seasons of Heroes. The network is currently showing the 23 episodes of the first series, with the second to follow.

Under the deal, the BBC will have the option of buying all content beyond the second season at a pre-agreed price.

As it has in American, Heroes is doing very well overseas. In July, the show's debut on BBC Two captured an audience of 4.3 million, a sizable figure in Great Britain.

In a statement, BBC said: "We're delighted to have secured an exclusive ongoing deal with NBC Universal. This means that if NBC Universal produce more seasons of Heroes (beyond season two, which is already in production) the BBC can buy them at a pre-agreed price.

This ensures that the BBC can continue to show Heroes at a cost that represents real value for money."

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.
