Could Heroes be Saved After All?

News broke late yesterday that original Heroes scribe, and current Pushing Daisies creator, Bryan Fuller would consider returning to Heroes, if Pushing Daisies does indeed get cancelled. Currently, there's only a 13 episode order in for the sophmore season of Daisies, which would have the show running out of episodes in January.

Fuller spoke exclusively to Entertainment Weekly, telling them: "I am exclusive to Daisies through the delivery of the 13th episode of our 13-episode order, which will be mid-January. If Daisies isn't picked up by then, I will definitely be going back to play with my friends at Heroes."

For many fans of the show, especially those of us who preferred the first season over anything that came after it, this is a great bit of news. Fuller, who began as a part-writer for Heroes, eventually worked his way up to entire episodes, including the widely popular episode, "Company Man". The episode, which was HRG-centric, took us down a path we're used to seeing on shows like LOST. Fuller made a short chore of unlocking the secrets behind "The Man in the Horn-Rimmed Glasses" and many fans have hailed this as Heroes' best episode ever.

Myself personally, I'm a bit torn. I'm a big fan of Pushing Daisies and would hate to see it come to an end, but if it meant Fuller returning to Heroes and getting that show out of the shiteous slump it's currently in, then I would be okay with that. With the firing of Jeph Loeb and Jesse Alexander, Heroes is finding itself in need of some new creative process... otherwise, it might be the show we find on the cancellation shelf.
