The Heroes/Resident Evil star on whether she thinks the show will be back.April 2, 2010 - Will Heroes be returning for a fifth season? We've heard little in the weeks since Season 4 ended, with many believing the show's fate will be decided based on how many new pilots NBC picks up to series in May and whether the network, currently in a rebuilding stage, decides they feel there's still room in their schedule for the series, which has dropped considerably in the ratings. However, tonight at WonderCon, at the debut of the trailer for Resident Evil: Afterlife, Ali Larter (Heroes' "Tracy Strauss") briefly spoke about the situation and sounded fairly optimistic about the show's chances.
Larter told the crowd of fans, "I think we're coming back for Heroes for another season." However, she was quick to add, "I think, but I'm not sure. So you guys have to go and blog and get on there."
Larter went on to say, "It's been such a thrill being on that show and I hope that we have the chance to sort of wrap up those storylines for all the fans of it."
It's widely presumed that if Heroes does come back for a Season 5, given it's dwindling ratings, this would be the final year for the series.
