Heroes Reborn Cancelled at NBC

The Heroes Reborn season finale will be the franchise's series finale, as well, NBC chairman Bob Greenblat says. The executive made the announcement at the TCA press tour. The one-season revival was always meant to be a finite story, but this answers the question of whether more would come after these characters' stories played out.

"That was always the plan, unless Tim woke up one day and said, 'Oh, I have another chapter to tell.' But I think we're coming to the end of the world, maybe. Stay tuned," he said.

Tim, of course, is creator Tim Kring - who initially said Heroes Reborn may be the catalyst for more. His indications when speaking of the story last year were that if it were to continue, it would probably be with different characters each season - but it seems that's now something they won't have the chance to do.

"As far as I know, there's no more incarnations of Heroes coming," Greenblatt said fairly definitively.


There is one more version coming, though, a video game called Gemini will hit as a digital download for current consoles on Tuesday January 19, telling a side-story that takes place (at least partially) around the timeline of Heroes Reborn. But after that, and the January 21 series finale of Reborn, it seems the Heroes world is ending.
