'Heroes' scoop: Early sneak peek at season 4!

The ink on NBC’s unofficial renewal of Heroes is barely dry and already the show’s producers are looking ahead to the fourth season. Truth be told, they’ve been looking ahead for some time now.

"We’ve spent a lot of time in the writers room talking about what season 4 is going to look like," consulting producer Bryan Fuller told me earlier this week. (At the time he was cautiously optimistic about the show’s chances of returning.)

Fuller says the final moments of the season 3 finale will set the stage for what’s to come in the fall. "Basically, the last act of episode 25, similar to what’s been done in the past, opens up a new chapter of Heroes. It sets up arcs for a variety of characters."

That’s particularly true in the case of Claire, Fuller says. "We set all the pieces up in terms of Claire’s attitude and what her trajectory is going to be in season 4. You will have a very strong idea by the end of this season’s final episode where Claire is going and what’s going to be happening with the Petrellis."

Of course, the bigger question is whether anyone will care where they’re going. Personally, based on what I’m hearing about this season’s final batch of episodes, I actually do care. But enough about me, let’s talk about you: What do you think of Heroes‘ early (and still unofficial) pickup? Relieved? Indifferent? None of the above? Sound off below!

    Sure, it hasn’t been as good as the first season, but I am still enjoying Heroes.

  • John

    Right now it’s certainly better than it was last fall, still needs more personality, better writing, less “move the plot”-esque dialogue. How many more weeks until the Fuller-effect?

    I’m seriously excited for the last episodes of Fugitives and the next season. I love Heroes, it’s the only show I’m eagerly watching.

  • Becky

    I’m glad they’re already talking Season 4. The show is (finally!) getting back to the level it was in Season 1, and I’m excited to see where it goes.
