Tommy (Robbie Kay) and Malina (Danika Yarosh) have only two episodes left to save the world from the apocalypse on NBC's "Heroes Reborn." Although the fate of their world is still yet to be determined, the network said the series will end one way or another when it wraps on Jan. 21 and likely won't return for a second round.
NBC entertainment chairman Robert Greenblatt broke the news that "Heroes Reborn" would not get a second season Wednesday at the Television Critics Association winter press tour. According to TVLine, Greenblatt said it was "always the plan" for the series to wrap up following the conclusion of "Heroes Reborn."
"As far as I know there are no more incarnations of 'Heroes' coming,” Greenblatt dished. "Unless [series creator] Tim [Kring] woke up one day and said, ‘Oh, I have another chapter to tell.' “But I think we’re coming to the end of the world, maybe. Stay tuned."
The end of the show doesn't come as a big surprise, as Kring told the Hollywood Reporter in September 2015 that the 13-episode miniseries would likely be it. "We’re making a contract with the audience that we’re actually going to do that," Kring said. "There’s no talk of anything to come after this."
However, it's likely that had the show been a rating success for the network, there may have been another new season created. Viewer numbers have decreased since the series premiered in September, dropping from 6.1 million viewers to 3.7 in last week's episode.
Only two more episodes of "Heroes Reborn" remain. Episode 12, titled "Company Woman," airs Thursday on NBC at 8 p.m. EST.
