Confirmed: Bryan Fuller Has Left Heroes AGAIN! – UPDATED

Scroll down for the latest update. WTH? According to the guys over at Aint it Cool News, a “convincing anonymous source” has told them that Bryan Fuller has once again left Heroes. According to AICN’s source, Fuller’s last day was Tuesday of last week, and his parking space on the Heroes lot has been empty since then. AICN has no proof besides this one “anonymous source” of theirs, and they haven’t been able to confirmed anything, so for now, this is nothing more than a rumor by one fan site.

Anyways, here’s what AICN speculated as to why Fuller might have left (if he indeed left the show yet again):

Last I heard he was still under contract with “Heroes” producer NBC Universal for another year and a half, and has been preparing new series pitches for the media giant. Fuller has also expressed interest in creating a new TV series set in J.J. Abrams’ new “Star Trek” universe.

AICN says they put in a call to Fuller but hasn’t heard back. Being that Fuller’s return to Heroes has been heralded something close to the second coming by everyone from the cast to the crew to critics and fans alike, this will be a major and nearly instantaneous blow to the show from a publicity standpoint. From a creative standpoint, well, that remains to be seen.

UPDATE:

Well it’s official. EW got the word from Fuller himself, who says he has decided to leave his “consulting” position on Heroes in order to concentrate on two other projects for NBC.

“I’m crafting two pilots right now and it’s a lot of work,” admits Fuller, who has an overall deal with NBC. “It was just too hard to [juggle] Heroes and my development; something had to give.”

Reactions and comments, guys?

    Well that’s not a good sign for the show…

    sidenote: he kind of looks like Patrick Stump.

    Just when I thought the show was becoming awesome again, the guy who made it that way decides to ditch it.

    But I’m happy too. I was upset when Pushing Daisies was cancelled but if he creates two new shows half as good as Daisies they’re sure to be more worth it than a show that’s slowly dying, as much as i like Heroes.

    Also, hopefully another project he’s not mentioning is a Pushing Daisies movie… hopefully…

    And what happens if those projects belly-up? I get the feeling that he’s kinda taking advantage of the fact that Heroes will pretty much be there for him to fall back on…

    It’s kinda frustrating to have his talent back for half a season–well actually a quarter of a season really; half a volume in Heroes terms–only for him to leave the show once its barely found its footing again.

    I’m pretty sure that he’s helped Tim lay out the basics of the season, so I guess I shouldn’t be quite that upset about it. After all, this show really was Tim Kring’s idea to start with, so maybe it really isn’t a good idea for him to overtax Fuller with it.

    *sigh* I just can’t really make up my mind on this one!

    This really sucks. I wonder how many, if any, episodes he got to write for this next volume. at the very least I’m hopeful he laid out a rock solid foundation for the other writers to build off of, but I’m not overly optimistic. Even if he does get it started out great, the others will probably screw it up.

    This is not good. I wish Mr. Fuller luck but it bugs me that he’s leaving after he only just came back. There was a rumor going around that he was signing on as a producer. NBC should hire some folks back since Fuller has left again.

    maybe he just realized that Heroes would never be as good as it was in season one? Good realistic view. Hmm..peace out heroes?
