As you all know, NBC's Heroes ended its run in February with good ol' Claire throwing herself from the top of a Ferris wheel in front of the media, revealing her superpower to the world, because she demanded the attention. Well, now it looks like the show could be coming back... miniseries style. TV Guide reports that Heroes creator Tim Kring is currently talking to NBC about doing a miniseries that would wrap up the story. The story would take place a year after the events in the series final episode.
"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."
According to Kring, the entire cast of the original series is willing to return for the new miniseries project. Who knows if this will actually happen, but I think Heroes has a big enough fan base that if it did happen, it would be a successful TV event. I know I could use a little closure even though I wasn't a huge fan of the show.
What do you all think about the possibility of Heroes coming back in the form of a miniseries?
