What is NBC doing? First they officially cancel Law & Order, now they’re canceling Heroes after four awesome seasons. Mercy and Trauma were axed as well. They say Heroes kept losing viewers from a high of 14.5 million when it first aired to a low of 4.4 million viewers earlier this season.
Heroes’ success as a science fiction series began when it premiered on NBC on September 25, 2006. Since then, the hit show had a large devoted fan club. Still, it suffered it its later years, so much so that NBC decided to axe Heroes without properly ending the show. According to Entertainment Weekly, “There has been talk that NBC may air a movie that allows the producers to wrap up the story, but nothing has been set in stone. NBC will announce its fall lineup to advertisers Monday in New York.”
Heroes has garnered a number of awards and nominations, including Primetime Emmy awards, Golden Globes, People’s Choice Awards and British Academy Television Awards.
