After four years on TV screens, bosses at America's NBC announced in May that the fourth season, which concluded in February, was the last. Producers have been in negotiations to end the show, which starred Hayden Panettiere, with a short mini-series or movie - and Kring reveals it's looking quite likely. He tells TV Guide magazine, "There's certainly talk about (a mini-series) right now and I am very hopeful. I strongly believe that the Heroes universe is a very big and very potent brand.

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." Source: - Tim Kring Wants Wrap-up Miniseries for 'Heroes'

Is There Power Left in Heroes?

Heroes ended its season last February with the indestructible Claire (Hayden Panettiere) throwing herself from the top of a Ferris wheel in front of the media, revealing her superpower to the world. Should the axed series return with a wrap-up miniseries - that's creator Tim Kring's hope, and he says he's meeting with NBC this month to discuss it - the plot will skip ahead a year or so to see the effect of Claire's revelation. "There will be a huge cultural and social change in the world," says Kring. "Some [of our characters] will be hiding, some struggling, some basking in the glory." Claire, who desperately wanted a normal life, will become a reluctant spokesperson for the abnormals. Sylar (Zachary Quinto) will again struggle with his dark side. And Adrian Pasdar will likely return, though not as Nathan, who died. Kring is confident he can lure back his entire cast if he gets a green light. (NBC refused to comment.) "I've spoken with everyone," says Kring. "They're all eager to participate." Source Here

Five 'Heroes' Spinoffs That Could Work

So NBC has finally canceled 'Heroes.' It's kind of odd to say "finally," as if the show had been on for ten seasons. It was on for four, but I think in the minds of fans -- and maybe in the minds of people who didn't watch the show but were sick of hearing about it -- the show had been getting worse and worse since the first season and there was so much "will 'Heroes' be canceled" talk for the past couple of seasons that it seemed like the time had come. I enjoyed the show every season and wouldn't have minded a fifth, but I have to admit that it's going to be nice to not talk about it anymore. To Read More Click Here .

Cancellation Buzz: Heroes is Dead (Official)

This has been the buzz for the last few days now - so it shouldn't come as all too huge of a shocker - but Heroes has been officially canceled. From EW : "The beleaguered drama only averaged 6.5 million viewers this year. It last aired on Feb. 8, when it only brought in a mere 4.4 million. The show never managed to recapture those stellar ratings from its critically-beloved first season, when it averaged a whopping 14.5 million. There has been talk that NBC may air a movie that allows the producers to wrap up the story, but nothing has been set in stone. NBC will announce its fall lineup to advertisers Monday in New York."

NBC Puts 'Heroes' Out of Its Misery

It's about time, I'll say! It was announced today that NBC is indeed cancelling Heroes. No surprise there — the series has been lagging in the ratings since its third season, and its fourth received such dreadful ratings that a cancellation seemed inevitable, despite rumors that NBC would pick the series up for one fifth and final season. Obviously, this did not come to pass, and Heroes has died out. Many would trace the root of the series' woes back to its second season. Perhaps if they wanted to go further, they could even take it to season one's lackluster finale, which set the stage for an absolutely awful season two and the beginning of a decline throughout the next two years. Stale storylines and bland characters definitely didn't help anything for the show, which had become a cult favorite during its stellar first season. Iconic characters such as Masi Oka's Hiro Nakamura were featured in the show, and science fiction alumni like George Takei and Malcolm McDowell had occasional guest spots as important characters, though even they weren't enough to keep the viewership from dwindling.
