NBC Cancels Heroes, Keeps Chuck
According to The Hollywood Reporter, NBC has officially cancelled it’s “real world” superhero series, HEROES.
I’d given up on the show early this season, as it had, in my view, seriously run out of steam. I no longer cared what happened to the characters, as they seemed no more than puppets dancing to the odd and frustrating whims of the writers.
The article asserts that network gave some thought to bringing back the HEROES for an abbreviated season, or a TV movie to tie up loose ends.
That might have been nice, but apparently it’s not to be.
However, the light SF/Spy show CHUCK seems to have been renewed for another season.
I’ll have to try to watch a few more episodes of the amiable series from Warner Brothers.
Given a Greenlight for the new season is the genre-infulenced series THE CAPE, starring David Lyons (ER) as a cop turned costumed superhero. Summer Glau (TERMINATOR: THE SARAH CONNOR CRONICLES) will play “an investigative blogger who wages war on crime and corruption” and presumably becomes an ally.
Might be worth a look.
