Amidst rumors that Kristen Bell isn't signed on for season three of Heroes, Kristin of E! Online has the following message for fans;
I have it on good authority that Elle is very much a part of the writers' grand plan for season three. (Fear not: Tim Kring loves her just as much as we do!) So, if there is a holdup, I assure you it is more on the business (rather than creative) side of things, and there is still time to get this worked out before they go back into production.
Oh, and by the by, we might not see much of Claire-bear in the first episode or two. Hayden Panettiere told us at her Candies soiree that production is "gearing up in April and I'll be joining them in May when I come back from shooting I Love You, Beth Cooper in Vancouver."
