"Heroes" Fans: Season 2 Will Be All New

"Heroes" Fans: Season 2 Will Be All New

Well, for all you "Heroes" fans who can't stand the Niki/Jessica storyline or are annoyed by watching Peter struggle to act (maybe that's just me), you may not have to endure it forever. Creator Tim Kring recently told Sci Fi Wire that Season 2 of the show will feature some new characters and an entirely new story. The current season is considered Volume 1 and will come to an end in episode 23. Next season will begin Volume 2 and will be a completely different story.

Kring says he wants to model the show more after "24" than "Lost." For the details and my opinion,

The news should come as a relief, considering how even loyal "Lost" fans are growing weary of the drawn-out story lines and so many characters it's hard to care about any of them for very long. On the other hand, "24" has kept things fresh by having each season revolve around a central trustworthy character (Jack Bauer) but introducing new plot lines and villains.

As a fan of all three shows, I'm very happy about this news, especially since Kring promises that while some of the heroes will not make it to Season 2, "many of your favorites will live to fight again."

A whole new storyline for Heroes: Season 2? YAAAY! I LOVE THIS SHOW! :D I'd hoped it wouldn't drag out like LOST, which at times makes me want to throw my TV out the frickin' window. :D

Hubbie and I watched the first episode of this, and we loved it! So, we decided to wait to watch until the whole season comes out on DVD so that we don't have to wait or have any of the suspense. It's killing us! We want it out now!!

Argh, Rambaldi! Good point, Livience. That made me so mad! I was like, thanks for stringing us along with "Alias" and ultimately delivering nothing, jerk! Overall I think Abrams drags things out too long: "Felicity" could have been at least a season shorter, "Alias" had some trouble keeping my interest for too long, and now "Lost" is trying everyones' patience.

GREAT call by Kring, modeling the show after 24 and not Lost. I hate JJ Abrams for coming up with such compelling ideas with so much potential and then ruining them by not being able to live up too the ridiculous hype he builds up (Rambaldi, anyone?).

When I originally read this it came as a relief to me. I'm glad Heroes isn't making the same mistakes Lost made. New characters and new villains will keep it fresh and prevent a second or third seasons ratings dive the way Lost is heading. I'm suspecting favorites like Peter and Clare and Hiro would stick around. It looks like they're setting up Matt and Issac for a fall, which is fine by me. The Nikki/Jessica thing can't go away fast enough, as well as her annoying family (really not huge on child actors). They were originally gonna kill Sylar off, but there's lots of talk of him becoming a series regular, which would be great. Since Peter and Sylar's powers seem to be two sides of the same coin, sort of a yin/yang thing, it would be great if Sylar was Peter's nemesis for the whole series. He's got everything required to become an all-time great TV villain (evil, selfish, without conscience and even sensitive). Certainly Sylar is my personal favorite. I don't know if this clip has been shown on buzzsugar before, but you can listen to Zachary Quinto briefly talking about possibly becoming a series regular, and what's in store for Peter and Sylar:

I think the following will remain becausethey are way too important- Claire and her dad( I love Mr. Benett) Petrelli family, Hiro, I think matt will stick around too. I absolutly LOVE this show, Sylar is great but I think Peter is going to kill him. The chic thst changes identity blew me away last night!
Butrfly4404 Butrfly4404 8 years
I think the staying power is with: The whole Petrelli family (Including Claire -YAY!! I"M SO FRIGGIN HAPPY SHE FOUND THEM!) Hiro (and ANDO??) Maybe Matt Parker, but we'll see. can't wait for your recap, buzz...I'll try to keep my "mouth" shut until then!

I can't stand the Nikki Jessica story line, Nikki always has that same look on her face. MORE HIRO! He's awesome. And since we saw his Future self I'm pretty sure he'll be around for a while! And while I sometimes can't stand the Pitrelli's their story is getting better, with Claire on the run, her grandma around now etc etc. I hate having to wait for the next episode! ALSO since there's so many stories in each episode it should be AN HOUR SHOW!!!!

I like the Niki/Jessica story line but maybe it's b/c I love that actress! Love her so much but can't even remember her friggin' name right now. Doh!

I think I might could live without the following characters: Isaac, especially after tonight's episode, I HATE him now (I won't give too much away for those who have not seen it yet). Niki/Jessica, boring story, unless they delve more into her family and their powers. Less Claire, but I don't want her to go away forever. Ted and Matt, Boooooringgg! More Peter, I LOVE him, I don't care what anyne says!!! _________________________ Zing!!

Ugh. I hope Season 2 cast will be just as good as Season 1. I love most of the characters in Season 1 and it will be hard not seeing them again.

Tonight's episode is number 18, and then there are several weeks without any new episodes, and Episode 19 airs April 23rd. Then the last episode (No. 23) of "Volume 1" should air May 21st.

I hope they do keep a few of my favorites. We kind of wondered where they were going to go with it. While I'm sure the story would get really old...really fast...I don't like when things change completely (It gives me an excuse to quit watching!!!). You so called the Peter thing. Sometimes....he just gets to me. Like, quit sobbing and act like a man!! But sometimes he's really great, too.

This sounds really amazing. If they can actually pull it off. Hopefully they can come up with more interesting charcters and plot lines. I think they could do it though, with the introduction of Hiros father lately and the fact that we still haven't seen Linderman (atleast I don't think we have) there can be quite a few more possibilities. I am interested to see what they will do. :D
