Networks Announce Return of TV Shows, Post-Writer’s Strike

Share:

Kristen Kreuk PictureThe writer’s strike is over, and all I can say is… thank you Lord! As a result, the major networks have started to release press releases detailing what to expect over the last couple of months. Many people feared that TV shows would be done for the season, but apparently the networks were more worried… As a result, many TV shows are returning this spring. The good news is that Lost, which was originally scheduled for only eight episodes, will now air 13 episodes (albeit with a break in March). The bad news is that Heroes will not return until the fall.
