'Heroes Reborn' season 2 news: no renewal plans for the show, NBC exec says


It looks like the end of the line for NBC’s “Heroes” reboot.

It seems that despite the cliffhanger finale to make room for a possible extension, the show, which was an attempt to replicate the success of the original franchise, will not be renewed by the network.

A report by TVLine quoted NBC entertainment chairman Robert Greenblatt saying that there will be no more incarnations of “Heroes” coming.

“As far as I know there are no more incarnations of ‘Heroes’ coming. It was always the plan to do just one season unless [series creator] Tim [Kring] woke up one day and said, ‘Oh, I have another chapter to tell,'” he said.

“Heroes Reborn,” which focused on a young cast of new heroes, was supported by stars from the original series which ran from 2006 to 2010.

Among those who pitched in to support the next gen heroes were Hiro Nakamura (Masi Oka), Matt Parkman (Greg Grunberg), Mohinder Suresh (Sendhil Ramamurthy), Micah Sanders (Noah Gray-Cabey), Angela Petrelli (Cristine Rose), and Ren (Jimmy Jean-Louis).

The show premiered with 6.9 viewers when it started airing last September, but viewers steadily decreased because they lost interest in material that already felt familiar to them. When the show returned on Jan. 7 to air its remaining episodes, only 3.7 million viewers were left to tune in. On average, the show only managed to post 1.1 million viewers in ratings, reported Crossmap.

In the final episode of the 13-episode season which aired last Jan. 21, the heroes successfully managed to save the world and fast forwards to three months later to show Otomo training Miko and Ren. The rest of the gang, Carlos, Jose, and Farah have decided to join forces to fight crime.

The finale also showed Nathan and Emily in a happy relationship, while Malina is finally having a normal life and attending school.

However, towards the end of the episode, Nathan and Malina are given tarot cards that indicated that their father was coming for them, which spelled danger for the duo.

But now that there will be no second season, fans of the show will have to be content in speculating how things would have turned out.
