Well, for all you "Heroes" fans who can't stand the Niki/Jessica storyline or are annoyed by watching Peter struggle to act (maybe that's just me), you may not have to endure it forever. Creator Tim Kring recently told Sci Fi Wire that Season 2 of the show will feature some new characters and an entirely new story. The current season is considered Volume 1 and will come to an end in episode 23. Next season will begin Volume 2 and will be a completely different story.
The news should come as a relief, considering how even loyal "Lost" fans are growing weary of the drawn-out story lines and so many characters it's hard to care about any of them for very long. On the other hand, "24" has kept things fresh by having each season revolve around a central trustworthy character (Jack Bauer) but introducing new plot lines and villains.
As a fan of all three shows, I'm very happy about this news, especially since Kring promises that while some of the heroes will not make it to Season 2, "many of your favorites will live to fight again."
