"Heroes," "Prison Break" Season Finales to Air in December?
TV Guide is reporting that the cast and crew of NBC's "Heroes" are filming an alternative ending to its December 3 episode which, if necessary, could serve as the second season finale.
The episode was supposed to conclude the current "Generations" arc of the series, but since some observers say the writers strike may last as long as the one in 1988, the new cliffhanger could wrap up the entire season of "Heroes."
If the strike is averted, the ending will be scrapped and the season will go ahead as planned with the next arc starting in January, just like last season.
The producers of "Prison Break" are in a slightly better position - their December 17 fall finale was originally supposed bring the show to a dramatic climax prior to the show's return in April.
That means they don't need to begin filming the spring episodes before mid February or even early March and although it is too early to speculate, that may be sufficient time for the writers residuals dispute to be settled.
