Grunberg: "There Will Be Heroes Season Five"

Heroes will be back, according to a confident Greg Grunberg, who plays telepathic cop Matt Parkman in the show. According to Entertainment Weekly’s MIke Ausiello Grunberg revealed at the People’s Choice Awards on Wednesday, “We wrapped yesterday and the final episode is nowhere near a series finale. It is cliffhanger-y and exciting, but it is nowhere near an end to a series that people are so invested in. It does not tie everything up in a neat bow… I don’t have any doubt that the show will be back. We will wrap it up properly in the next season and get to 100 episodes. At least that’s what I would like to see happen. They take so much care in writing the show that I would hope we get the chance to end it right. Lost announced an end [date] and I think that helped both the people working on the show and the people watching it. They see the finish line and I think it gives them something tangible to invest in and be excited about. It’s like it’s a movie and they want to see the end of it. That’s what I hope happens with our show.”

Hmm, he doesn’t seem quite so certain at the end of that little speech, does he?

He also reveals that he'll have a cameo in Lost season six, reprising his role as the ill-fated Oceanic pilot: “Well, with Lost, they go back and forth in time so you have no idea when and where the last season will take place. I may get eaten all over again!”
