For his next act, Heroes creator Tim Kring wanted to nix the epic mythologies and instead make the TV show that he'd been kicking around in his head for years. His new drama, Touch, stars Kiefer Sutherland as a man desperate to communicate with his mute son Jake, an 11-year-old who he discovers can spot patterns in the world that predict the future and -- more importantly to Kring -- demonstrate humanity's interconnectedness.
So while Jake sounds suspiciously like one of Heroes' superpower-wielding characters, solving the mystery of his gift is not a priority for Kring.
Chuck, Yvonne Strahovski
Can Chuck and Sarah recapture that loving feeling?
"The show's a romance," Chuck co-creator Chris Fedak told reporters at a set visit in December. "I think that's what we discovered very early on in the show, that the moment we put Zach [Levi] and Yvonne [Strahovski] together, the show became about them. I think the Chuck and Sarah story is at the heart of the show."
Despite being shot by a sniper in the two-hour series premiere of Alcatraz, Dr. Lucy Banerjee will not mysteriously disappear from J.J. Abrams' new Fox drama — which is, of course, a relief to her portrayer, Parminder Nagra.

Chuck, Scott Krinsky and Vik Sahay
Chuck's two-hour series finale wraps up the fan-favorite spy show with plenty of action, snazzy outfits, heartwarming moments and a song.
"The finale is very much haunted by seasons past. This is an episode that's not only a finale for Season 5, but also five seasons of television," series co-creator Chris Fedak told reporters on the final set visit in December. "So we're going to be bringing back a lot of things that it wouldn't be an episode unless we saw Yvonne [Strahovski] in the cat suit, also wearing an evening gown dancing the tango."

Felicity Huffman and Doug Savant
Will one of Wisteria Lane's most beloved couples be able to reconcile before time runs out? For seven seasons of Desperate Housewives, Lynette (Felicity Huffman) and Tom Scavo (Doug Savant) were one of the show's few stable relationships. While Gaby and Carlos, and Susan and Mike were busy breaking up and getting back together, and Bree had her hands full bedding half the block, the Scavos always seemed to have it together.
But after separating at the beginning of the season, things aren't looking good. "We're worried," Huffman tells TVGuide.com. "We just keep getting farther and farther apart."
