They may be down, but they may not be out… yet.
Despite a decline in ratings and waning viewer engagement over the past two seasons, NBC’s ‘Heroes‘ might deliver a final salvo of episodes to sew up the saga of Peter, Claire et al.
Larter was conspicuously absent from much of this past season, as she was busy filming the fourth installment of the ‘RE’ franchise.
Still, her take echoes that of cast mate Greg Grunberg. Shortly before February’s season finale, Matt Parkman’s portrayer told EW.com that the last episode was “nowhere near an end to a series that people are so invested in. It does not tie everything up in a neat bow… I don’t have any doubt that the show will be back.”
Helping smooth the way for a return to production is the fact that few current cast members have been locked up by other gigs – save for Sendhil Ramamurthy, who’s now a part of USA Network’s ‘Covert Affairs,’ and Hayden Panettiere, whose availability might be limited if the CW orders to series ‘HMS,’ the drama pilot she is producing.
Should ‘Heroes’ get saved, the consensus is that it would return for an abbreviated fourth season that provides closure to the once must-see series.
“It’s been such a thrill being on that show,” Larter said at the ‘Con. “I hope that we have the chance to sort of wrap up those storylines for all the fans.”
What do you think, ‘Heroes’ loyalists? Are you open to a final few episodes to wrap things up? Or is the series super-over?
