'Heroes' Will Return in the Fall (Most Likely)

Word is, NBC plans on bringing back "Heroes" despite the recent decline in ratings.

When THR asked if the show was "on the bubble" for a renewal, Angela Bromstad, entertainment president, said no.  The network currently plans to order 18-20 episodes for Fall 2009. 

Although the action-drama has lost viewers this season, it's still tied with "The Office" as the top-rated among 18-49 this season.  Also, "Heroes" acts as a nice lead in to the new sci-fi pilot "Day One" about a group of survivors in the wake of a catastrophic global event. 

"Day One' is a big event and we're looking at that to come into the 'Heroes' spot," Bromstad said. "It's right now being looked at as a 13-episode run -- something people could commit to and we could make a big splash with."

So unless "Heroes" takes a super plunge in ratings, it looks like the show is here to stay.
