The return of former writer Bryan Fuller on Heroes
has been pushed by critics ever since the NBC series has been bashed as “troubled.” The idea comes on the heels of the firing of producers/writers Jeph Loeb and Jesse Alexander and the fact that ABC has pulled the plug on Fuller's latest series, Pushing Daisies.
IGN recently caught up with the Pushing Daisies
creator and asked him about his chances of returning to Heroes,
where he served as writer for the first season and where he garnered special praise for the episode called “Company Man.”
“Well, nothing is official, because I'm under contract with Daisies
until the delivery of [Daisies
' thirteenth] episode, which is in January. But I would very likely go back to Heroes
and help them finish out the season and see where that takes me in the next stage,” Fuller told IGN.
Now that Fuller has welcome the idea of returning to Heroes
, one question remains: In what capacity will he return? Fuller doesn't have a clue at this point but is certainly optimistic about what the future holds.
“I have no idea,” Fuller said when asked of his choice to return as a consultant or a full executive producer. “I know I would love to work with them again. I think that particularly reading what I've read of the ‘Fugitives' storyline, I would be very excited to go back to the show, because I think the ‘Fugitives' storyline is actually great and it goes back to all of the wonderful things that made the first season so much fun. So there's a lot of mixed emotions, because it's like yeah, it would be great to go work with the people that I love again, but I want to continue working with the people that I'm loving here [on Daisies
Aside from Heroes
and Pushing Daisies
, Fuller is also credited for his work on Star Trek: Voyager, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Dead Like Me, Wonderfalls
and the TV adaptation of Stephen King's Carrie.
