Breaking News – “Heroes: Origins” DOA?

 With the pending Writers Guild Strike and poor ratings this season of their flagship series Heroes, the unofficial news out of NBC is that “Heroes: Origins” will not be getting the six-episode run that was expected in April 2008 and has been pulled from its mid-season launch.Heroes  Right now NBC is not commenting on the fate of “Heroes: Origins” nor revealing on what stage the current production process the series is in.  If they are considering pulling it, I would say that production is in its infancy. 

Also, if the strike runs as long as the 22-week strike in 1988, all shows will be in jeopardy.  Who knows, a long strike might not be a bad idea for Heroes, the longer the show is off the air the more opportunity the producers have to save this sinking Titanic.

  2. I’m kind of glad this spin off was canned. I think Heroes might have over extended itself this season. I don’t think we really need more new characters.
