Heroes: Tim Kring Wants Wrap-up Miniseries

All hope is not lost, at least not for Heroes series creator Tim Kring. In a last ditch effort to save his axed series, Kring is planning to meet with NBC execs this month to discuss the possibility of bringing back Heroes for a wrap-up miniseries.


Heroes, which ended its fourth season last February with Claire showing the world the truth about her abilities, was one of the shows canceled by NBC last month due to high cost of production and diminished ratings. Since then, however, Kring has been looking into ways to conclude the storylines with a possible movie or mini-series.


If and when NBC agrees to the follow-up feature, Heroes will skip ahead a year or so to see the aftermath of Claire's revelation. "There will be a huge cultural and social change in the world," Kring tells TV Guide. "Some [of our characters] will be hiding, some struggling, some basking in the glory."


Kring also reveals that Claire (Hayden Panettiere) will become a reluctant spokesperson for the abnormals, while Sylar (Zachary Quinto) will struggle with his dark side yet again. In what seems to be another jump the shark strategy, Adrian Pasdar is also expected to return though not as Nathan who died.


"I've spoken with everyone," says Kring, who seems confident about luring back the entire cast. "They're all eager to participate."

Tim Kring's failure can be felt with almost every episode. I like the first series but every other season after that was terribly awful. None of the story lines ever make sense, there are no rules for the powers and all of the faux-scientific elements are completely off the wall so I can't even suspend my disbelief. And for Christ's sake, if Sylar is evil, make him stay evil and have someone kill him. You can't fall in love with your characters because then they stop being believable. Every story involves death, Sylar should have either died in the first season or he and Peter should have actually switched places so you have 3 dimensional villains. That was the one chance to save this atrocity of show which, I blame for the ending (cancellation) of the The 4400, which was good show about people with powers. Tim Kring had no qualms about ripping off"Watchmen" and "FlashForward" but couldn't do a decent rip-off of his premise. How about NBC give a show to Rene Echevarria and Ira Steven Behr, good sci-fi authors because television right now is severely lacking.

Bottron, both watchmen and flashforward are based on works that came long before Heroes, so they are not 'ripping off' Kring's ideas.

Well, I think Kring's ripping off Alan Moore and Robert J. Sawyer. But if you get down to it, every story has already been told and it's how you tell it but destroying New York to create world peace is so derivative of Watchmen. But like I said, I liked the first season despite the fact that I think it takes from a lot of other works. The failing is the later seasons where it is really apparent that he has no idea where the show is going and completely invalidates any creative credibility. It makes me mad that Heroes sort of ruined the "people with powers" setting when shows like The 4400 did so well with it.
