    NBC will replace it with “Kings,” a much-anticipated series chronicling the life of King David in modern times, starting March 19.

    As for the rest of the schedule, “Heroes” will launch its next installment, “Fugitives,” on February 2, which also marks the return of supernatural drama “Medium.” And “The Office” will get a Super-sized return on February 1, when it airs a one-hour episode following the Super Bowl. “Life” and “Chuck” will also be back.

    A pair of previously announced mid-season series — an untitled Amy Poehler show from the makers of “The Office” and “The Philanthropist” — have yet to be announced.

    However, “Knight Rider” won’t drive out its full season, ending early at 17 episodes and wrapping up with a February 25 season finale.
