Heroes creator Tim Kring has revealed that he is still in talks with NBC about the possibility of reviving the show as a mini-series.
The show was originally cancelled in May. Kring confirmed last month that he was meeting with NBC to discuss bringing the program back.
He has now told TV Guide that talks are still ongoing and that he is "hopeful" that the series will return soon.
"There's certainly talk about [a mini-series] right now and I am very hopeful," he said. "I strongly believe that the Heroes universe is a very big and very potent brand. It is for the fans that we feel that [the show] should continue."
He added: "NBC has expressed an interest in finding a way to wrap it up in a way that honors the fans and the show, and I'm very interested in pursuing that."
Kring hinted that if the planned television revival did not come to fruition, the show could return in another medium.
"It can continue in any number of platforms, not simply broadcast," he said.
