NBC Cancels Heroes

It was once the crown jewel and a monster hit of NBC's line up, but it's no more. Heroes has been cancelled. While I will miss the show, which launched the career of cutie Hayden Panittiere, it's probably for the best to lay it to rest. Hey, that rhymes!
Execs at the network considered bringing the show back for a shortened season to wrap up the open, unfinished storylines but decided against that move, given the high cost of production, declining ratings and the amount of new, hour-long serials that will pack the NBC schedule next season. Despite not wrapping up the series with a final season, the door is, however, open for a special or a movie. Those plans are not set in stone and may never see the light of day.
Are you bummed that Heroes has bit the dust? Should fans demand a wrap up season via a letter writing or in this century, an email or tweet campaign?
