Report: Heroes Canceled, TV Movie Likely

at . Comments

On second thought, Heroes might actually NOT get renewed.

Despite NBC Primetime President Angela Bromstad saying a renewal for Heroes "makes sense" in many ways, a new report in New York Magazine states the opposite:

Because the network is satisfied with new pilots it has ordered (such as J.J. Abrams' Undercovers), sources say there's more of an upside to seeing if these shows can take off, as opposed to "begging viewers to give Heroes one more shot."

It's hard to argue with that logic. Especially given that Heroes hasn't produced a solid episode in years.

An Awful Hiro

According to agency sources and chatter around Hollywood, the magazine article states, "Heroes has started looking less like a backup plan and more like a waste of money."

But all hope is not lost for long-time viewers.

Insiders say "there's a good chance" the network will at least find room on its schedule for a movie that could bring some finality to the franchise. Hey, it's better than nothing, right?
