More Hope for Heroes and Chuck?

Apparently, there's still some hope for fan favourites Heroes and Chuck - which, by the way, makes me happy (well, not as happy as I will be when those two shows will be officially renewed but I have hope!)

Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, NBC Entertainment president Angela Bromstad offered some information concerning both Chuck and Heroes, as well as other NBC programming.

Asked about their monday night ''genre shows'' programming Bromstad revealed:

We have another genre piece in contention, and we have “Chuck.” We’re going to hash out the schedule over the next week.

That other genre piece is The Cape which Bromstad says that:

It looks fantastic. We just saw it with special effects today. It’s closed-ended, and the hero catches the bad guy every week. Decisions are still outstanding, though, because we haven’t gotten back our testing yet.

About Chuck, Bromstad added that:

It’s our highest-performing Monday night show. We look at it as a very strong player, and it’s a show that matches up with our new shows. It’s too early for me to say for certain as it’s a conversation we’re going to have next week.

Concerning the fate of Heroes, The Hollywood Reporter went in and asked a direct question:

THR: With “Event” getting picked up and “Cape” looking good, does that mean “Heroes” is less likely to get that final-season order?

Bromstad: With serialized shows like “Parenthood” and “Heroes” that don’t perform well in repeats, we could be looking at shows sharing the same time slots (split between fall and spring). I wouldn’t count anything out. With shows like that, we really have to sit down and figure out all the pieces of the schedule.

There you have it. Things are looking good for Chuck. As for Heroes, what Angela Bromstad said would fit in with the 13 episodes season 5 rumour we previously heard. At least NBC is still thinking about it. However, I guess we can rule out a full season order if and when Heroes does come back.

What do you think? Are you still hoping for Chuck and Heroes?


  1. Of course I am! I want this suffering to end! I need my mondays to be good again!

  2. I don't know if Heroes will come back on mondays though :( that will remain to be seen.
