Fans of the Heroes revival received some bad, yet not surprising news today.
NBC’s entertainment chairman Robert Greenblatt confirmed to reporters that Heroes Reborn would not be returning for a second season.
“[One season] was always the plan, unless [creator Tim Kring] woke up one day and said, ‘I have another chapter to tell,’ ” Greenblatt said. “But I think we’re coming to the end of the world, maybe. Stay tuned. As far as I know, there are no more incarnations of Heroes coming.”
Although there was a lot of buzz for the series return, it got off to an ok start and the ratings never really took off. Although Heroes Reborn was billed as a one-time limited series, we are sure it’s a safe bet that if the ratings had been much better-there would have been discussion for another season.
The original Heroes ran for four seasons beginning in 2006 and became some what of a pop culture phenomenon during its first few seasons. Several of the original cast members reprised their roles for the revival.
