It was kind of touch and go for awhile, but NBC entertainment president Angela Bromsted has confirmed that Heroes will continue for a fourth season.
But the catch? It’s not really a full fourth season, the Hollywood Reporter says. Instead of the 23 or more episodes that typically go into a season, this will be more like 18 to 20.
That said, for the struggling show, any continuation is good, and this very well might be the salvation of the program, as Pushing Daisies writer Bryan Fuller will have his contributions appear in the next few weeks.
