Will Heroes Be Back For Another Season?

Heroes Will Heroes Be Back For Another Season?

If you listen everyone’s favorite telepath, Greg Grunberg (Matt Parkman on the show), it would seem that Heroes is in for another season. Despite low ratings and rumors of cancellation year after year, Grunberg believes he’s got the evidence to support his statement. What’s this evidence he speaks of?


“We wrapped yesterday and the [final episode] is nowhere near a series finale. It is cliffhanger-y and exciting, but it is nowhere near an end to a series that people are so invested in. It does not tie everything up in a neat bow… I don’t have any doubt that the show will be back.”

Hmmm… Do you want to break the news to him or should I? Just because a season finale has a cliffhanger doesn’t mean that it’s going to be renewed. There are a million shows that were canceled on cliffhangers (Terminator: The Sarah Conner Chronicles, for example). Grunberg could have just called up past Heroes writer Bryan Fuller, as Fuller’s resume is full of shows getting canceled on cliffhangers (Pushing Daisies, Wonderfalls, Dead Like Me).

Still, that’s not Grunberg’s only proof… He also says that Heroes‘ strong DVD sales and popularity overseas will help propel it into another season.

I love Greg Grunberg, I really do, but he should know that NBC doesn’t care about overseas numbers. Case in point, Baywatch was the number one syndicated show around the world for many, many years after it had been canceled.

Alright, let’s say that Grunberg is correct and Heroes somehow makes it to another season. What would he like to see?

“We will wrap it up properly in the next season and get to 100 episodes.”

Citing Lost and their decision to set an end date:

Lost announced an end [date] and I think that helped both the people working on the show and the people watching it. They see the finish line and I think it gives them something tangible to invest in and be excited about. It’s like it’s a movie and they want to see the end of it. That’s what I hope happens with our show.”

heroes matt parkman Will Heroes Be Back For Another Season?“You WILL give us another season, NBC…”

Fair enough, he’s got a point there. The problem is that I don’t think people are as invested in Heroes as they used to be. I still watch it and think that this season is far better then previous ones, but I wouldn’t exactly say I’m “invested.”

What do you think? Are you still invested in Heroes? Could you sit through another season? Could the pay-off and end-game be worth it?

Catch Heroes Monday’s @9PM on NBC.

  12. I justed watched all 4 seasons of heroes on Hulu Plus. The very last episode at the end said to be continued. I would like to see one more season at least. The season ended with me having so many questions.

  15. Guys what da heck we need volume 6 no freaking stories….

  16. i really like to see the ending so please NBC let Heros Shown again in your chanel Thank You …

  17. Thanks NBC for letting HEROS shown again next year although they want to change new character …

  18. okay i know that heroes has been cancelled for a longtime now but they should still bring the show back!!!!!!!!! its an amazing show MMMMMMMMMMMMAAAAAAAAAANNNNNNNNNNNYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!!! people love this show and i am one of then i have watched ALL 4 season almost 5 time already and im still not tired of it and at the end of season 5 it said ‘to be continued…’ so you cant possibly leave all of us just hanging like that especially because of how season 5 ended!!!!! what happenes with Clair and Peter and Sylar !? what becomes of the group ?? will sylar stay good for good ? or is it just temporarily !? you have to make a 6th season you just got to !!!!!!!!!1 this show has so many fans!!!! many be it didnt when the last season came out but now A LOT of people have seen it on netflix and have fallen in love im sure if they were to bring this amazing show back it would have more viewers than it had when it first came back i mean this about it… do you know how many people in the world have netflix!? A LOT they would most likely be extremely happy to find out that they would make a new season to the tv show and they would be dying to see it !!!!!!! so please im begging you PLEASE bring back heroes it the best show EVER!!!!!!!! it appeals to every one: girls, boys, nerds, geeks, adut,kids, teens… i mean it has everything it has drama, action, suspense. and they keep you engaged by not revealing everything all at once like in the second to last episode of season 5 i think when sylar and peter are arguing and sylar picks up the sledge hammer and it looks like his about to hit peter and then it switches to someone else they did that to keep you engaged because if they revealed it all at the same time people wouldnt be so engaged after that so they did that to keep the audience entertained and engaged in the show

  19. Please please please make a new season I’m obsessed with heroes and have watched all the seasons about 3 times and I will keep watching it again but I rly want to know what happens once evreone knows and about sylar and I want to not know what evreone is going to say by heart and even tho it was canceled a long time ago it could be like 5 yrs in the future or something

  20. I want more everything about this show was amazing it became part of my life but now it was taken away and im dissapointed .
