Heroes

HeroesHeroes may be revived thanks to a new programming initiative from MSN.

The company is starting a push to have more original content on their Xbox platform and new episodes of Heroes is something they are looking into.

MSN is interested in re-launching the series with new heroes and stories while featuring cameos from the original series cast.

Heroes last season aired in early 2010.

Heroes creator Tim Kring is still holding onto hope that a final Heroes mini-series of movie will be given the green light.

Kring detailed his plans for wrapping up the recently cancelled series in an interview with TV Guide.

“There will be a huge cultural and social change in the world,” Kring said. “Some [of our characters] will be hiding, some struggling, some basking in the glory.”

He is confident he can bring together the entire cast of the series should a conclusion be given the nod by NBC.

“I’ve spoken with everyone,” Kring said. “They’re all eager to participate.”

NBC have yet to comment n the plans but word is Kring and the network will sit down and nut out the possibilities of a finish to the series.

Drama series Heroes has officially been cancelled by American network NBC.

The series, which ran for four seasons since 2006, will not be renewed by NBC for the upcoming season of programming.

Waning audiences has been the reason for the axing, with ratings for the third and fourth seasons well down on the first two. Despite premiering strongly back in 2006, the following second series was hampered badly with the onset of the writers strike and the show never fully recovered its audience.

The show, which made stars out of the likes of Hayden Panettiere and Zachary Quinto, became a cult hit in sci-fi circles and has garnered a range of awards including Primetime Emmys and Golden Globes.

Heroes joins fellow NBC series’ Law & Order, Mercy and Trauma on the scrap heap.

Heroes actress Elisabeth Rohm is confident the TV drama will be renewed.

Rohm, who plays Lauren Gilmore, has said she and her fellow cast members are “pretty confident” about the future of the show.

“It isn’t totally confirmed but I think all of us actors feel we’ll have another season,” she said.

The 37-year-old believes the producers will run another season in order to wrap up the show’s storylines.

“I think when you have a show that’s been on the air for a long time, like I did Law And Order, it’s emotional,” she said. “You want the show to finish, so I think we’ll get another season.”

There have been reports that Heroes will be given a final 13-episode run.
