EW Source Says Heroes Wrap Up is Not Coming

Hey All,
I am sure most of you already know and perhaps have even accepted that there will not be a Heroes Wrap Up movie/mini series. Over the last few weeks and months many of the main actors have signed deals for other TV Shows/Movies/Projects and so it should be no surprise to hear the that NBC will not be making a mini series.

As Tim Kring told me at a recent signing of his new book, we would really have to wait and see how their new shows perform. Don't forget last season when Trauma was canceled but brought back after the Jay Leno debacle.

However, EW says the have a "source" saying NBC does not want to make one.

Personally I think NBC should not be stringing fans along. Just come out and say it is over or say what Kring said.

Here is the statement from EW:

Don’t hold out for closure, Heroes fans: A key source on the canceled drama told EW that NBC is not moving forward with a movie that would wrap up the four-year series. After the Peacock announced the show’s cancellation last May, there was some talk about allowing creator Tim Kring to give fans one more chance to say goodbye to their favorite characters, but that’s as far as it went.

NBC would not comment Thursday.

Tim Kring Updates Heroes and Thanks Fans at SDCC 2010

So while I was at San Diego Comic Con 2010 I had a chance meeting with Heroes creator Tim Kring.

This was the first time I met him and he was totally cool and humble about the show and experience of Comic Con. He was signing autographs for his new book Shift but was kind enough to do a small interview for our readers and all the Heroes fans.

Unfortunately there is no real update because at this point I think the only realistic chance for a Heroes wrap up will depend on how well/bad the NBC Fall lineup performs and Kring pretty much confirms that. At the same time he said they are doing whatever they can to try and keep the Heroes Universe alive.

Hope you all enjoy and thanks to Tim for the time.

NOTE: For those wondering why I did not ask other questions, I was lucky just to get this time, he was only planning to record a few seconds for the fans and he was very patient to answer the few I did ask him.

Tim Kring's Update on Potential Heroes Wrap Up

Thanks to everyone who sent this in. Here is the latest from Tim Kring which is not much more. Many are speculating NBC to make some sort of announcement at Comic Con, but I have not heard anything yet.

FYI: This is a couple of days old now

"We all thought there was going to be another season - the truth is, we are still talking to the network about how to wrap up the show in some way for the fans, but no decision has been made about how we're going to do that.

"As to how to continue this brand that everybody recognises, [this is] a very potent brand across the world.

"I'm still very involved in trying to wrap that up on air for the fans and hopefully we'll have something to announce very shortly."

He added: "The Heroes universe is a very deep one and it extends across all sorts of platforms, and in a world where there are any number of characters, there is a very deep cannon and mythology and it can very easily extend across multiple platforms - online, publishing, comic books, gaming and all that kind of stuff.

"I am hoping to explore that with the network who owns the property."

POLL: Are You Happy with the Current Ideas for a Heroes Mini-Series??

So at some point over the next couple of week's Tim Kring will be pitching his idea for a Heroes Mini-Series to wrap up the series to NBC.

Most of you do not seem happy with a 1-Year later plot focusing on the effects of what happened with Claire's decision to come out being a super.

What do you all think?? What do you want to see?

NOTE: You can vote for all that apply

Kring Scheduled to Talk with NBC This Month About Mini-Series

Thanks to everyone for the heads up about this new article via TV Guide.

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."

Zachary Quinto's thoughts on Heroes Cancellation

This was posted on Zachary Quinto's official page a few days ago:


the road ahead...

yesterday nbc announced that heroes is officially cancelled. as much as we have been aware of this possibility for a few weeks - it remains surreal to consider that the decision has been made. the action has been taken. and this chapter (or volume) is really over for all of us who worked on the show - and for all of you who watched it. i want to extend myself in a huge swell of gratitude to all of the fans. for investing in the stories we told. for engaging in the characters we created. and for standing by us through all the ups and downs of what was at times a rocky road. your commitment enriched the experience for all of us - and i know that we will always be grateful for your enthusiasm. it has been a true honor to share this time in my life with my amazing cast mates and our indomitable crew. i will certainly miss them most of all. the gift of working alongside such talented and inspiring people is something i will carry with me everywhere i go from here. and no matter where my work and my life take me - i will forever look back on heroes as the game changer. tim kring and the original creative team and writing staff took a risk on me to play gabriel gray when there was no reason to risk - besides their belief in me. they gave voice to a character that has challenged me and rewarded me beyond my wildest imagination. i will never forget that. it is humbling and deeply moving. so i thank them. and i thank you. and i assure you that while this door has closed - and as cliché as it sounds - others are flying open even as we speak. this is only the beginning in so many ways. and i hope that the fans i have made through this profound experience will follow me into many new and unchartered territories. i think the sarmy should lead the charge... it's only fitting after all. thanks for your many well wishes and for your loyalty. let us move on with gratitude. that is exactly what i intend to do.

Hayden Panettiere Joins the Cast of Scream 4

It seems like Hayden Panettiere has joined the cast of the upcoming Scream 4 sequel.

The movie is set to film in July so not sure what Hayden's schedule will be like for a potential Heroes movie.

The longer they wait to do it, the harder it will be to get all of the main actors together.

With many of the cast beginning to sign other deals, at this point I would not expect a wrap up movie.
