With Pushing Daisies pushing up daisies over at ABC, show creator Bryan Fuller is heading back to NBC's Heroes. He's expected to be in place in time to bring the "Fugitives" arc to a close in April next year.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, Fuller is in talks for a two-year deal with Universal Media Studios that will see him rejoin Heroes by the 20th episode of the show's troubled third season, although it's uncertain whether he'll stay with the series for a fourth season, or move to another Universal-produced series for the Fall 2009 schedule.
Whichever option he chooses, it's expected that he'll split his time between working on that series and developing projects of his own, meaning that fans of Wonderfalls and Pushing Daisies have another critically-acclaimed, low-rated show to look forward to, for the season or so before it gets cancelled.
