Heroes creator Tim Kring is lobbying NBC to allow for a wrap-up miniseries to the show, which ended with the world knowing about the Heroes. The mini-series would pick up 1 year later, seeing the effects of the revelation.
Also on the resurrection front, Flash Forward fans plan to stage a “flash” blackout of their own – on June 10th, at ABC offices and other locations in major cities, fans plan to stage a blackout in which they with “faint” for 2 minutes and 17 seconds…
Update: Heroes has also been canceled, although there may be some sort of conclusion later on.
If you were hoping for another flash, think again…ratings for Flash Forward dropped 19% this past week to 4.7 million viewers, and could signal the end of this show when the season concludes.
Just a head’s up – Flash Forward returns to TV tonight at 10pm EDT after Lost with a recap show. V returns next Tuesday with a recap show, followed a week later by a new episode.
Co-creator David Goyer is stepping down as showrunner of FlashForward to concentrate on feature films and directing. He will remain involved in the show, however. No successor has been named yet, even though the series is in mid-production.
Flash Forward will not return March 4th as originally planned, and instead will return with a 2-hour block on March 18th, and run straight through until the season finale on May 27th.
Missed this earlier this week: Both V and Flash Forward have had their series orders reduced by an hour each: 12 and 24 total hours, respectively, one less than originally reported.
At least they are coming back, for now…ABC has announced that Flash Forward will return on March 4th, and V will return on March 30th. Flash Forward will avoid the Winter Olympics completely, and then it is planned to run it straight without repeats.
Perhaps its a bit of bad timing, but these things never bode well, no matter what the networks say – ABC announced that Flash Forward production has been halted for a week that has supposedly been “built in to the show’s schedule,” according to a network representative. But if that was the case, why announce it? Especially since it just had its lowest ratings yet and the co-showrunner exec left?
