“Heroes Reborn,” the revival of “Heroes,” which ran from 2006-10, will be officially concluding next Thursday, Jan. 21 after 13 episodes. Said NBC Chairman Robert Greenblatt at The Winter Press Tour: “As far as I know there are no more incarnations of “Heroes” coming. It was “always the plan” to do just one season “unless series creator Tim Kring woke up one day and said, ‘Oh, I have another chapter to tell.’

One-hour British dramedy “You, Me and the Apocalypse,” with Rob Lowe, Jenna Fisher and Megan Mullally, debuts in place of “Heroes Reborn” on January 28. The logline: After a group of ordinary people learn that an eight-mile wide comet is on a collision course with Earth, they hunker beneath the town of Slough to watch the end of the world on television.

  1. And all were shocked!!

    It’s not like the original was canceled for lack of viewers… Oh wait, it was!!!

    Look for more continuations and reboots as the huge success of Heroes Reborn and More 24 (or whatever it was called) clearly shows the audience is demanding more!
