The OGMOG blog recently sat in on a panel discussion where the Heroes execs discussed the show’s future, LOST, and more. Some good stuff here, but first, a minor SPOILER warning for those of you who haven’t seen last Monday’s episode (and if you haven’t, what’s wrong with you????).
The one thing that caught my eye was this from Tom Kring and Jeph Loeb:
Tim Kring also weighed in here, noting that the main questions raised in the first season would be answered by the season finale. Loeb advised fans to think about the show like a graphic novel, telling new stories each book (or season), while retaining information from past stories. “We wanted an opportunity where we could tell stories about people,” Loeb said. “New people will come in, old ones will come back.”
This is awesome news. The creators are looking at each season as being its on semi-independent story arc, just like the comics have. Couple that with a 5 year plan (in Soviet Russia, 5 year plan has you) for stories, and it sounds like Kring has thought this through. Unlike the creators of The Dresden Files. SciFi could learn something from this. My only hope is that there is no Superfriends created. We really don’t need any Wonder Twins running around.
