NBC Cans 'Heroes' Wrap-Up
No Movie Finale
Published: 09/10/2010 09:40pm
When NBC cancelled Heroes last May (see “Heroes Is Dead”), there was talk of a made for TV movie that would tie up all the series’ loose ends. Now a source close to the show has told Entertainment Weekly that the peacock network is definitely not moving ahead with a movie that would provide fans with one last chance to see what happened to the characters they had been following for four seasons.
Heroes, which was created by Tim Kring, began with very strong ratings, but never recovered from the interruptions created by the writers’ strike. Wildstorm’s two Heroes graphic novels, which were based on a weekly Webcomic created by NBC to promote the series, were very strong sellers.
