In a move that has "everything" to do with a possible writer's strike and "nothing at all" to do with this season of Heroes experiencing critical blasts and ratings drops, NBC has shelved the summer series Heroes: Origins. The off-season spin-off series was supposed to introduce several new heroes and tell their full stories. At the end, viewers would decide which of the heroes would get to be in the regular cast.
Insiders at NBC are insisting "creative reasons weren't behind the temporary shutdown of the spinoff." According to Variety (where the writers can't seem to get through an article about NBC without calling the network "Peacock" ten times), "Peacock execs believe future episodes of the show will return the skein to its season-one form."
So tell me: What do you think of this season of Heroes so far?
