Well, this season may be the last for the once formidable sci-fi hit Heroes. Airlock Alpha is reporting through their sources that NBC executives will ask Heroes producers to draw up an end plan for the series, with a possible overall series finale to air by May of next year.
“There isn’t much happening with this show in terms of audience, and giving it a ‘final chapter’ feel is something the network is considering to help allow the show to go out with a bang,” said the source, who asked not to be identified.
“To keep a show like this going despite its numbers requires some nostalgic connection to it, and while there are a lot of people here who were part of bringing ‘Heroes’ to the air, they are not in the decision-making capacities,” the source said.
Airlock Alpha is stressing that a final decision hasn’t been made yet and likely won’t be made until closer to mid-season.
