Heroes Axed After Scrubs…What Next?

May 19, 10 Heroes Axed After Scrubs…What Next?


Heroes has become the latest victim of the ongoing TV cull – the show has been cancelled after four seasons.

The hit program, starring Hayden Panettiere and Ali Larter, won over audiences and garnered critical acclaim upon its launch in 2006.

TV bosses at America’s NBC have announced the fourth season, which concluded in February (10), will be the last, although sources tell The Hollywood Reporter that Heroes bosses are in negotiations to end the show with a short mini-series or movie.

The news comes after the cancellation of a number of high-profile TV shows including medical comedy Scrubs and long-running cop show Law & Order.
Michelle Trachtenberg and James Van Der Beek are also looking for work – their medical drama Mercy has been cancelled after its first season.

Trachtenberg stars as a nurse in the hospital series, featuring Van Der Beek in a recurring role as a womanising doctor.

But chiefs at American network NBC have declined to commission a second series of the show, which launched last September.
