As for whether or not the series will be renewed for a fourth season, Angela Bromstad, NBC's president of primetime entertainment, sounded confident. But she also acknowledged the show's slippage.

"They may have taken on too much in terms of characters and multiple storylines," Bromstad said.

Heroes returns on February 2, as the characters will try to lead normal lives... until Claire discovers a plot to hunt down and capture those with powers, orchestated by Nathan

We are bad asses now!

Hiro

Hiro: Every ten year old wishes he had super powers. And I got them. Me of all people. Last in my class. Last on the sports field. I’m not a loser anymore.
Ando: Tell me one useful thing you could do with this power. Can you make money?
Hiro: A super hero doesn’t use his power for personal gain.
Ando: Then what good is it? Can you teleport yourself into the women’s bathroom? Now, there’s something useful. You won’t learn your "purpose" in there, but you might learn something about life.
