NBC announces extra Heroes with the fall schedule
by Doc on May.15, 2007, under Television
After NBC’s dismal season, with Heroes providing the only freshman hit, the fall schedule was announced and it provides an extra dose of Heroes and a few new SF shows. Heroes: Origins will be used to increase the Heroes season to 30 episodes, and provide insight into new characters that viewers can vote on to have them appear in the following season. This should offset some of the rerun doldrums, which did some harm to the ratings of the show (and quite a few others). Also in the schedule are the previously announced Bionic Woman remake by Galactica exec David Eick and Journeyman and newcomer Chuck, bout a young computer whiz who becomes a government agent after espionage secrets are downloaded into his brain.
