Heroes Might Actually Get Renewed

at .

As a rather harsh critic of Heroes, I'll try to deliver this news with the stoicism of Tom Brokaw:

NBC is seriously considering renewing the show for a fifth season.

Primetime President Angela Bromstad made that announcement this week, as she spoke to reporters about the network's recent pick-up of Parenthood.

Asked about other shows on the bubble, specifically Chuck and Heroes, Bromstad indicated that each would receive a 13-episode order for the 2010-2011 season.

Nathan's Funeral

Seen here, HRG, Claire and Peter are sadly NOT attending the funeral for Heroes.

"It is all yet to be debated," she said. "Both of those shows make sense with the new shows we'll be bringing on."

They do? What new shows will NBC be bringing on? True Hollywood Stories: Terribly Constructed Dramas That Make Everything Up As They Go Along and the Networks That Won't Cancel Them?!?

Heroes Quotes

Invisible Man: I told you not to follow me.
Peter: I need help. You live up here?
Invisible Man: You're not a fast learner, eh, mate?
Peter: I took care of a man who owned this building. His name was Charles Deveaux.
Invisible Man: Never heard of him.
Peter: You don't think that's strange? I worked here. The place where you live and keep your birds.
Invisible Man: I don't keep anything. I let 'em out once a day, they come back. Sounds like free will to me.
Peter: I need to learn how to control this. Like you do.
Invisible Man: What are you talking about? It can't be controlled.
Peter: There has to be some way. If, if I don't, New York explodes. Okay? I explode.
Invisible Man: An exploding man, where'd you get that idea?
Peter: My dreams. This place. I found you for a reason. I think you're the one that has to teach me how to stop this.
Invisible Man: There's no such thing. No teaching. No Sunday school for the special. What I can do, you can't learn. You wake up in the morning, it's there. If you've got thin soup, then that's your supper. Sorry, mate, that's the way it is.
Peter: I'm trying not to die. There's got to be something you can do.
Invisible Man: I can kill you myself right now. Solve your exploding problem here. Maybe that's why you dreamt me. Don't bother looking for me. You won't find me here again.

Or is the truth that you do not have the strength or cunning to hide from destiny? That the world is not small, you are.
