Heroes: Tim Kring Plans TV Series Ending and Possible Future

HeroesHeroes creator Tim Kring has issued a none-too-humble statement about the end of the NBC series. The ratings have dropped a lot since the show’s big splash on NBC back in September of 2006. While the show still has a lot of fan support, that doesn’t necessarily translate into ways that the network can make money. Kring doesn’t hold the cancellation against the network and said…

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.

NBC’s primetime entertainment president, Angela Bromstad, confirmed this week that discussions had begun regarding plans to produce a two-hour Heroes event. This would be aimed at providing closure for longtime fans of the series.

The event would likely be split into two parts and included in the syndication package with the rest of the TV show’s 77 episodes.

What do you think? Can Heroes be wrapped up in a two-hour movie? In what other ways could the show continue? Comics, books, animation or perhaps something that’s online-only?

    Just finished watching season 4 of Heroes on dvd and wish something can be done about continuing season 5 or at least a mini series to have a proper closure for this awesome show. It’s driving me crazy!

    I think that there should either be a final full season or at the very least ended with a two hour a week 4-6 week mini series. Two hours alone would not be enough time to give full closure. This was one of my favorite series and it ended abruptly just like The 4400. Sad for the fan base. Lots of other nonsense goes on and on and on.

    They need to continue it or make couple of movies because it will not be easy to end it in 2 hours only

      They should make another series to end it because the ending really didn’t show much. It’s driving me crazy I love this show and I watched the whole series in 4 days

    I have been renting heros on my Netflix, and I got addicted to the series. I love Peter!! Anyways I just watched the last episode, and is like the worst ending ever! So i think it would be wonderful if you guys made a movie that finishes the Ending. I also love Sylar! he has a unique look
