Still hope for a conclusion to Heroes?

If you haven’t heard the bad news regarding Heroes, the sci-fi behemoth the BBC have been showing for several years, well, there’s no easy way to put this.

It’s joined the long line of sci-fi efforts such as Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles and been cancelled.

Although unlike Terminator, which only ran for two seasons before being binned, NBC ran Heroes for four before canning it.

Which feels like a lot of investment, for viewers like us – and 45 million others worldwide – to put into the show, then to be left hanging with no conclusion.

Okay, so after a brilliant start Heroes did go downhill somewhat with season two and particularly three in our opinion, so you can see where this was coming from to a point. But the fourth outing was a definite step up.

The creator of Heroes, Tim Kring, has however given us some hope that while it definitely is the end of the TV series as we know it, there may be an ending of some sort on the cards – in a different format.

The Hollywood Reporter picked up on a statement Kring issued regarding the closure of the show. He said: “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.”

So, maybe we will get some form of resolution after all, with the rumour mill giving the nod to a possible movie to wrap things up. That may well be optimistic, on the other hand.

It would be great to know whether Sylar really has turned good (again), or if he’s going to go bad (again). And what becomes of them all now Claire has revealed herself to the world.
