NBC Cancels 'Heroes'

NBC Cancels 'Heroes'

NBC has pulled the plug on Heroes.

The show’s declining ratings and high production cost are to blame for the cancellation, according to THR.

Heroes ran four seasons and was considered for a shorter final season to wrap up the storyline.

Other NBC shows canceled today include Mercy and Trauma. Long-running drama Law & Order also got the boot yesterday.

FYI: Chuck, which was on the bubble and up for cancellation, was renewed earlier today.

    Never saw it.
    And then a hero comes along,
    With the strength to carry on.
    And you cast your fears aside,
    Cause you know you can survive.
    So, when you feel like hope is gone,
    Just Look inside you and be strong.
    And you’ll finally see the truth,
    See That a hero lies in you, you, you.
    Ahem! Sorry, I just had a moment there :-)

    no !!!!
    I hope another network will pick them up to give an end…
    however I do understand why they canceled Mercy and Trauma,
    I remember watching the 1st episode of Trauma to check it out and I couldn’t even get through it

    @lilly: It sure as hell isn’t better than Big Love, Justified, Weeds, Dexter, Damages, Mad Men…basically all cable TV shows. The show got really horrible. Not surprised.

    That stinks about Hereos but the special effects probably cost a fortune. Also, Hayden and Zach seem to be trying to do other things so it’s probably for the best.

    I blame Hayden Pannettiere. It’s all her fault

    @Jaye: LMAO! Ugh…..I hate it when they cancel shows……especially when I’m a fan. I never really liked this show but I really know what it is for its fans. I know what it is to see my favorite show getting brutally cancelled. So my condolences to you XD.

    the first season was good, then they started to kill off main characters. Its all went down hill for me as soon as they got rid of Peters original powers (this got me really upset). Anywho I could have seen this coming, but I wished that they would have wraped up the storylines before they canceled it. :(. O well atleast i still have Big Love, Dexter and Trueblood !!!!!!
