The ever-so talented Michael Ausiello over at TV Guide has just confirmed something I heard a rumor about yesterday.
In the unlucky event that some sort of agreement is made very soon between the WGA and AMPTP, totally disregard what I’m about to say next. However, if not, expect Heroes to end this season a lot sooner than expected.
Rather than suffer the fate of a half-finished season, inside sources say that the show is going back to shoot an alternative ending to the episode that is airing on December 3rd. The episode itself was said to be the end of the ‘Generations’ arc that we are currently in the midst of. If this new alternate ending IS used, it would allow the episode to be used as a season FINALE.
Yes, you read that correctly. Season. Finale.
That means Heroes would be ending in December after only 11 episodes.
