NBC Shows Returning, But Not Until Fall

  • Chuck
  • Heroes
  • Life

NBC Shows With Fates Yet To Be Determined Officially

  • Bionic Woman has probably been scrapped. Update 2.25.2008: You can remove the “probably” from the previous statement.
  • Friday Night Lights could live to play another game.
  • Las Vegas might be back as well. Update 2.25.2008: You can change the “might” to a “won’t” in the previous statement.
  • Journeyman has probably journeyed for last time.

Wish Chuck was coming back sooner, but at least it is coming back. Very disappointed that Journeyman will probably not be back, but at least they gave it a decent last episode. Really hope that Friday Night Lights will be back, as the last episode to air would be a terrible way to end things down in Dillon.

At any rate, how great is it that we will be getting new episodes to watch soon?

    Dana, I was hoping that Las Vegas would be back as well, especially because of the way it ended. But, it won’t be coming back this season or ever.

    Melissa, a lot of people agree with you, including me, but unfortunately it is the case.

    BRING LAS VEGAS back they have tons of people wanting it back it has to be the best show ever to get cancelled for no reason maybe its the money thats what NBC only cares about not about the viewers. Bring it back for the viewers isnt that your real job is to do then do your job!!!
