Question: I have a Heroes question: Are they going back to work on new episodes in the spring, even if they will not air until the fall? Is that how NBC is able to order more than 22 for next season?

Answer: Nothing gets by you, Pat. Yes, Heroes is tentatively slated to start production on Season 3 on May 1 more than two months ahead of schedule. As a result, the show could have as many as 10-13 episodes already in the can by the time it returns in September.
