No one can save the cheerleader anymore, as NBC announced a set of new shows for the 2010 to 2010 season and “Heroes” isn’t among them, including “Law & Order” that has been shelved as well.
Entertainment Weekly reports that NBC has announced a number of new shows and renewals for the 2010-2011 season over the last week, but the four-season superhero-centered show has been cancelled.
Heroes, which earned 14.5 million average viewers from its first season, saw its ratings sink in the following years with only about 4.4 million viewers with its season finale on February 8, 2010.
Fortunately for the stars of “Heroes” like Zachary Quinto, Ali Larter and Hayden Panettiere, there’s still the big screen for future work. Quinto even starred in the 2009 movie “Star Trek,” which will be followed by its sequel on 2012.
Aside from “Heroes,” the 20-season-old NBC mainstay “Law & Order” was also shown the door. New shows include Olivia Munn’s comedy “Perfect Couples,” the drama “Outlaw,” a new legal drama “Harry’s Law,” a cop-drama “The Cape,” and the comedy “Friends with Benefits.”
