Latest from Ausiello:
Question: I'm dying for some juicy Heroes scoop! — Stacie
Ausiello: Well, this is about as juicy as it comes: Kristen Bell is not — I repeat, not — signed on for next season. But (and this is a big "but," so listen up) sources confirm that Heroes is in active discussions with her to return for an arc during Season 3. And considering how much everyone at the show worships her — and she them — I have every reason to believe that this will happen.
Question: I have a Heroes question: Are they going back to work on new episodes in the spring, even if they will not air until the fall? Is that how NBC is able to order more than 22 for next season? — Pat
Ausiello: Nothing gets by you, Pat. Yes, Heroes is tentatively slated to start production on Season 3 on May 1 — more than two months ahead of schedule. As a result, the show could have as many as 10-13 episodes already in the can by the time it returns in September.
Question: I'm so sad to hear that Heroes isn't returning until the fall. Do you have any idea what we can expect for next season? — Holly
Ausiello: Let's just say that over the next few months the show's casting offices will be filled with actors who are very good at being very bad.
