Report: NBC Has Decided Not to do a Heroes Movie/Mini-Series

Or at least that’s the report from Entertainment Weekly, who writes:

A key source on the canceled drama told EW that NBC is not moving forward with a movie that would wrap up the four-year series.

After the show was officially canceled back in May, it was hoped that NBC would allow producer Tim Kring and the cast one last shot to say goodbye to fans with either a mini-series or a TV movie to wrap up all the loose ends.

According to EW, that will not happen.

Again, this is not official. The network has not responded to the EW report yet, so until the network makes it official, it’s just a report…

    WHYY WHYY WHYY!!! HEROES i mean there are a lot of series worse then Heroes but they are still on!! FFS

    • waste123

      There are so many shows that suck. they need to finish the show either a mini series or the last season. nbc is a joke.

      • Janesoto

        You are absolutely right. NBC is a joke. They have no respect for their viewers.

        They canceled a phenomenal show called, Kings. Great casting, and especially they had a great story line.

        Meanwhile, shows like “Jersey Shore” and “The Hills” still seem to be on air.

      • Robertholden4586

        well i really agree with the fact that jersey shore and all those other gay shows didn’t get cancelled but ours did was shitty but i think that tim kring should have know that it was going to end and not to push his luck like he did but should have ended it with a better ending so really tim kring’s fault 

      • Craig_o87

        Agreed wtf, The to take NBC off the air!!!
         

      • Craig_o87

        They need to take NBC off the air

    • Carl475

      This is discusting from NBC top allow all its viewers to waste their time watching a show all that time then cancel without notice. On top of that they didnt even have the decency to finish the story with another season. These networks should be fined for wasting peoples time…Heroes was awesome.

      • Camgaffney

        I know what you mean. I wont even buy the blu-ray (which i really want to) because it’s an uncompleted series. It would be pointless to watch series again because it ends right when it was getting great. NBC… Please do a wrap-up movie! YOU KNOW YOU WANT TO!

      • Thorshammer74

        yes please do a wrap up mini series. This is just like the show Farscape. It was awesome and cancelled after 4 years, but at least they did a miniseries to end the show.

      • Lucas-thomas-james

        So true!!!

      • Lightseeker2986

        That is too true. I had never seen this show before but when I started watchin it, I got hooked.

    • Carl475

      This is discusting behavour from NBC a television network who really has no interest in keeping their viewers happy. Heroes was an awesome show that shouldnt have been cancelled in the first place and it seems they do not mind in the slightest about wasting their viewers time.

      Allow the viewer to be enjoy it, get hooked for 4 seasons…then cancel…nice.
      NBC NATIIONAL BULL**** COMPANY

      If they wanted it gone then they should have had the decency to finish the story that the viewers were so into by wrapping it up in a final season at the very least. Behaviour like this should not be tollerated or permitted from these mickey mouse networks.

      • Ashley<3'sMilo4Ever

        i completely agree, im so into the show and im devastated now…

      • http://www.facebook.com/people/Jason-Vazquez/1366895088 Jason Vazquez

        i agree i never watched NBC until heroes came on. retarded shows like minute to win it and reruns of law and order svu, biggest loser????? best u got? wtf this is rediculous at least if your gonna go out because the number of viewers went down and you cant pay the cast at least for the fans sake whom you did have left — got out in style with one big bang episodes chi chi mons mbc is crap back to fox 5… and even they are killing me… ending shows like 24 and prison break,,,….. smfh

      • John Day4

        there are huge audiance in uk and Europe and is the number one series here people still waiting for the end series NBC should meet to start next season asap as the foundations are there to pull audiences back in as at the moment I and many like us are reluctant to start watching any more American shows that will probably stop like this you would be amased at the number of people turning thier backs on american shows like this because of heoes and lost ect being axed so badly

    • F00rez

      yes oviously, but heroes is high cost. high cost series like heroes needs huge audiances to be making profit. But i agree and so does my friend heroes is probaley the best tv series of its time.

    • Darthsaber89

      so true. heroes is alot better than most of the stuff they have.

      • Bjorn

        Tim Kring is a genius! This was by far my favourite series of all times! Tim: Make a Movie like Heroes and make your millions!

      • HeroesFan

        Even better. Tim Kring should find another network to pick up the series for at least a season to finish it up or even better, keep it going….

      • Thorshammer74

        yeah like the Sci Fi net work.

      • Person

        Not Sci-Fi Network… Fox!

      • Mid88Night

        Fox doesn’t have much better as far as a track record is concerned. Fox canceled Firefly for instance (yes I’m a Browncoat). Just like they canceled Terminator: Sarah Connor Chronicles, and appears to want to do with Fringe (moved recently to Friday nights).
        Sci-Fi canceled Stargate SGU and Caprica recently as well. Both great shows that could have developed beyond their awesomeness if given the chance.
        All networks have ratings they have to deal with, but it’d be nice for them to be ended properly at least.

        NBC… You seriously have to wrap this up properly. Your fan-base for heroes is too large. Why would any of us watch your shows in the future if you’re just going to drop them without an ending?

      • Royce4

        it dont matter what network just bring it back….

      • Zyara

        I love Heroes, they should really bring it back to air, at least a miniserie or movie to be able to watch the real ending of the story. NBC please listen to all the millions of fans around the world who miss heroes a lot!!!!

      • Heroesfan

        They could bring it to the WB, because there are a few shows there that needed to killed-off years ago.

      • Bdibb

        Honestly he should have sold his show the thecw they woulf have finished it and more ppl watc it anyways. Mabe it not to late for him

    • Andres

      Now , I diffently not going to but the series on blu ray

    • Kim

      I just finished watching Heroes season 4 on Netflix and I can’t believe Heroes just ended like that! I was expecting some closure at least. If I had known, I wouldn’t have even bothered to finish watching. I loved heroes, but that last season got weird

      • Ashley<3'sMilo4Ever

        Me too, i only have the last episode to watch, but then thats it! i’m scared to watch it because then it makes it official that it over. They need to finish it. :)

    • Joo

      Every series must have an ending, isnt that obvious. This cant happen after so many seasons. No more NBC on my television, they suck!

      • Lucas-thomas-james

        TRUE TRUEE TRUEE!

      • Amandabear23

        i agree with all the comments i have just read i am so disappointed because i loved this show so much and it just ended like that! now no one knows what happend and why. the last episode sucked, i mean it was great, but for us fans it sucks because it just keeps us wanting more!! and yes nbc does sucks because they dont even care i think a better network should have picked this show up!!!

    • LSy

      I cannot agree more!! This is such sad news to hear :’(

    • Davespatriots39

      I so agree with everyone’s opinion on NBC and the show. I can not believe that they are not going to finish the series. Maybe Sci-Fi will pick the series up and continue the story line! I love the Sci-Fi channel, heroes would be a great addition in their line up!

    • Niconitis

      with all the out cry about this you would think that a decent network would start the season back up. but wait were talking about NBC. haha i forgot. the only goodseries and they cancel it. wow

    • Wmpooler

      Hey everyone, start watching heroes on g-4 and boost their ratings. If we do that they could buy the rights to it and start making new episodes.

    • Eelanefranco143

      I love this show!!!! NBC needs to make a 5th season!!! I just finished the 4th season on Netflix tonight and I want more!!!!

    • LOUTHHERO

      i feel robbed tim kring done one of the best show i have ever seen. lost, prison break smallville etc and they all got to finish,and were not near as exciting as heroes well done tim kring. truely an amazing job,its sick to think your not aloud finish Heroes by to days standards, a MASTERPIECE

    • Shane0831

      i just hope they give up the rights so someone can make the movie. here is how you fix them bankrupt nbc. dont watch any of their shows on tv. if you want to watch them look them up online

    • Loxsam

      if nbc does not do another series or just wrap it up at least! i will never watch or support nbc again! this is bs!

    • sbninja

      Please bring back Heroes!

    • Svaika

      Don’t think they’re telling everything in this article :-) Let’s just make sure Heroes will not be forgotten and will be revived even in a 20 year old time past all the crisis’ and all the bul$&^%it they’re not telling us.

    • Djepic10

      F*** NBC. There is no good shows on that stupid station anymore. they should give up the rights to Heroes to FOX and let them finish up heroes, i wont be watching anything on NBC for a long time..

  • Vlad

    Typical NBC Crap!!!

  • Daniel416

    FU NBC I REALLY REALLY REALLY HOPE THAT “THE EVENT” & “THE CHASE” BOMBS I JUST CAN’T BELIEVE THAT U CAN’T FUND ONE DAMN MOVIE TO FINISH OFF A SHOW THAT ONCE GAVE U ALL THIS MONEY OR THAT U CAN’T SELL OFF THE RIGHTS TO A MOVIE STUDIO SO THE STUDIO CAN MAKE THE MOVIE FOR THE FELLOW FANS I HOPE YOUR NEXT FUTURE SHOWS FAIL!!!!!

    • Ldyma

      Sick of BS too…Who speacks here WE should…who listens here THEY should…just BS

      • Ldyma

        oops I can spell speaks ha ha

    • Mikeb4205

      As of November 9, 2010:

      The Event
      - 5.539 million viewers

      Chase
      - 4.550 million viewers

      And these are new series, Heroes hit that low after 4 seasons. Heroes needed to get back to what made it great, a super-hero versus a super-villain with strong supporting characters.

    • Crystal Crest

      [smh] hVe to disagree with you on one thing, Event is actually good, a fav of mine currently. But since they cancelled heroes, I’m starting to wonder if I should even bother continuing to watch it, since they’ll probably cancel the too. :.

  • Tarsisd2

    so heroes is over?

    • Daniel416

      If NBC doesn’t sell off the copyright to another Network Station or to a Movie Studio then Heroes will be dead it’s up to NBC on the faith of HEROES? :(

    • Daniel416

  • denymenot

    it seems like no network can end a show respectively. Same @#$% happen to Moonlight the other year….if they are going to do a show for 4 year and then just give up on it then it says alot about what the network thinks of there people

    • cowboy42081

      Moonlight they have been doing this to shows for years the problem is it’s hard for new people to start watching a show with an ongoing story line. So there were no new viewers watching the show because they didn’t know the characters background. PS I loved heroes and think it is horrible but it hasn’t been confirmed so there is still hope.

      • Jjjjason2

        One Comment**** Stargate SG1 was on Syfy for 10 seasons…

    • Micky Spin

      Yes, Moonlight was really good. It was a shame it ended so soon. I think they should begin adding into contracts stating all shows should be allowed a suitable ending to satisfy the viewers to some degree.

  • Sara

    I would have to agree. You would think if we were committed for four years; they would be committed in tying it up with a conclusion. We can simply quit watching NBC and watch a network that is more committed to their customers/watchers

    • Gringo1314

      Then don’t watch anything on FOX they cancel every good show before its due date.
      Examples:
      Firefly
      Titus
      Family Guy
      and on and on……of course FG got a second chance at life but still!

    • Cristina

      I totally agree…I am so sick of getting wrapped up in television shows on NBC that are never wrapped up…they did the same thing with Las Vegas and Life…I am done…I will stick with the networks that take the take to give their faithful viewers the closer the deserve even when the show is starting to fail!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Kevin

    I must say i did believe Heros was lossing some steam,and i was not to suprised it was canceled,but at the same time i do agree after 4 mostly good years it does deserve a ending mini series or Movie.

  • Aseli

    I agree with making a movie to wrap everything up.

  • Hossfly569

    Well maybe a good network like the CW will pick up Tim Krings baby and rock it for a while, they really know how to market and produce great shows like Smallville, Supernatural, and one I really don’t like,One Tree Hill, but it gets the ratings, What do you say C.W.( already a fan base , just needs a little CW creativity, to get the ball rolling again)…

    • Daniel416

      If people still want to fight for the faith of Heroes go to facebook type in Heroesfansunite there are people around the world are still fighting to save Heroes I know it’s a long shot but if ur a true Heroes fan “WE” shall at least try?

      • Peter Papadopoulos

        we are trying ….but we need more….hope they will finish the book.we asking for a proper end not a fully season…they have to give in this dream a nice end. Greece is with Heroes too.

  • Ravenclaw

    I’ll be honest, I think the greatest hope we have is a remake twenty years from now.

    • Juls60

      I hope the do not wait 20 years! I’ll be too old or gone. I wish another network would take it over.

  • Cross

    it’s sad to see this show end without a proper conclusion. Well am disappointed with NBC, started a project they know they can’t finish,in which they made a lot of money from the fans spending money on the DVD s and yet they can’t give the fans a good season finally.

    • Rcrouch01

      U GOT THAT RIGHT. Now I have 4 SERIES AND NO ENDING. That crap especially since the dvd’s cost so much!!! This show deserves to have an explosive ending. NBC SUCKS!!!

  • Anonymous

    I am beyond disappointed.

  • Anonymous

    G4 is supposed to be doing a Heroes marathon on September 20th. If it gets good ratings maybe that will change their minds.

    • GOD

      everyone watch if ur want a closing to the show

  • ubrain

    To us, the audience, it makes no sense NOT to tie up the loose ends after 4 years of story – that would just be ridiculous, obviously!
    But to NBC execs who probably never even watched the series, only the viewing figures and what they can earn off export count for anything.
    There is no loyalty to their audience, their writers, actors or to the creative process. Their ONLY loyalty is to the balance sheet – welcome to the American Dream.

  • Robert09

    EVERY ONE WATCH THE HEROES MARATHON ON G4

  • Annathompson1213

    This isn’t fair!!! Heroes was amazing :) I hate nbc!

  • gramps

    This happens all the time. HBO did it to “Deadwood” and the promised mini-series ending never happened. It’s really too bad for the fans who’ve hung in there for 4 years. At least ABC allowed “Lost” to wrap up it’s story line. But, it’s all about money for the networks. Add me to the disappointed list.

  • Soupermomof4

    I’m really not a TV viewer, but got hooked on the shows “Surface,” and “Heroes” because my children insisted that I watch. I enjoyed both shows tremendously, and was extremely disappointed when they ended suddenly without closure. It’s disrespectful to viewers when NBC and other networks build up these suspenseful story lines, then leave us with convoluted cliffhangers and our own imaginations to wonder what might have happened if we were allowed to see the series come to a logical conclusion. The trailer for “The Event” seems interesting, but I for one won’t get sucked into it; watching for a few seasons and being disappointed when it abruptly concludes with an illogical turn of events and too many loose ends. I think I’ll stick to reading!

  • Tinkiexever
