Tim Kring Addresses NBC's Cancellation Of HEROES

TVNBCby brians

I have to admit, I've never seen a show plumit like Heroes did, it went from being called the "phenom that swept World" to being talked about and made fun of. Wow society and today sure can turn on you! I was one of the faithful that stayed with the show till the end and yes there were some flatlining episodes but guess what, you have that in everything plus we're talking about NBC here, the network that just ran off Conan remember! With that, the writers strike (rememeber that?), switching out writers and producers, there's no wonder the show fell, thye kept trying to find someone to blame for the sinking ratings, you have to have stability and faith in a product NBC!  Kring you are to blame too!

There is a very strong rumor that Heroes will have either a one shot movie or mini-series to finish up the story. I'm looking forward to it! i am hopeful it will live on in comics and maybe even a cartoon in the future and who knows we might even see a return on a "different" network.

Show creator Tim Kring has addressed the fans with this to say;

"I want to first extend my deepest gratitude and heartfelt appreciation to the legion of enthusiastic fans who have watched ‘Heroes’ on TV, online,  DVR, DVD and mobile over the last four seasons. Every week more than 45 million TV viewers around the world, as well as millions of social and digital media-based fans, have made ‘Heroes’ one of the five most-watched shows across traditional and digital media screens in the history of television. For NBC, I certainly understand the challenge of creating a business model around a show which arrived precisely as the audience was finding new ways to watch traditional content on multiple screens. I personally have had 12 great years with my friends at NBC, and with ‘Heroes,’ they provided me a rare opportunity to put a message of hope, interconnectivity and global consciousness into the world.  For that I am grateful and look forward to finalizing our discussion about a number of ways to keep the ‘Heroes’ universe alive for its fans."

I want to know who stayed faithful to Heroes till the end? Do you want to see the shows story finished in a tv movie or mini-series or have you had enough?
