NBC plans to bring back “Heroes” for another season, said entertainment president Angela Bromstad.
The action-drama’s ratings decline has caused some media reports to speculate as to whether the show will return next fall. As part of Hollywood Reporter’s annual Q&As with the five broadcast network chiefs, Bromstad was asked if “Heroes” could be considered “on the bubble” for a renewal.
“No,” she said, and added that the network plans to order 18-20 episodes of the show for next season.
That’s fewer hours than “Heroes” first or current third season, however, with season two having been cut short due to the writers strike.
