The BBC has signed a deal with NBC to show all future seasons of Heroes in the UK.
“As long as Heroes is on in the US, we will show Heroes,” BBC acquisitions head George McGhee told Digital Spy. “It’s a long-term partnership, and I think that was the right thing to do. [NBC] are really pleased that we’ve got Heroes – and they don’t want it going to a commercial broadcaster.”
The BBC plans to air the upcoming third season on BBC Two and BBC Three from late September, just days after its US broadcast, which is better than the first two season which aired months after they did in the US. It also means UK fans like me don’t have to watch the show by other methods…if you know what I mean.
