Television Series Heroes Cancelled

heroes_title_cardNBC cancelled the one time ratings hit Heroes after four seasons. The cited reasons for the cancellation are the high cost and the low ratings.

The show had a large set of followers during the first season averaging 14 million viewers in the United States.

A new superhero drama, The Cape, is reported to be the replacement for the series.

At the end of season four, cheerleader Claire Bennet revealed to the world the existence of ordinary people with superhuman abilities. It is possible that the network will end the story with either a mini-series or a movie.

The network will be filling in new drama shows to its primetime line-up especially since the ruckus it found itself in after the failed primetime experiment of The Jay Leno Show.

These new shows include The Event, a show that is similar to the series 24, Undercovers by JJ Abrams, OutsourcedLove BitesOutlaw and Chase by Jerry Bruckheimer.
