That should please those Heroes fans who’ve been clamoring for Fuller to return to the show he helped to write and produce during its first season. The bad news, however, is that Fuller’s comeback is contingent upon ABC’s cancellation of Pushing Daisies, which seems more and more likely.
“I am exclusive to Daisies through the delivery of the 13th episode of our 13-episode order, which will be mid-January,” Fuller tells EW’s Hollywood Insider. “If Daisies isn’t picked up by then, I will definitely be going back to play with my friends at Heroes.”
As EW notes, Fuller wrote just one episode for the show’s freshman season. But that episode, titled “Company Man,” is considered among the best.
The website reports it’s unlikely Loeb and Alexander, who oversaw day-to-day production of the show, will be replaced this season.
Fuller also created cult-favorite shows Dead Like Me and Wonderfalls, and worked as a writer on Star Trek: Deep Space Nineand as a writer and producer on Star Trek: Voyager.
