While NBC isn't commenting either way, Heroes creator Tim Kring is pushing his wrap-up story for the cancelled series in the form of a mini-series.

TV Guide's Michael Logan interviewed Kring, who envisions the mini-series to take place perhaps a year after Claire's fateful fall from the top of the carnival Ferris Wheel.

"There will be a huge cultural and social change in the world," Kring told Logan.
"Some [of our characters] will be hiding, some struggling, some basking in the glory."

Kring apparently indicated Adrian Pasdar would "likely return"--though not as the deceased Nathan. What then? Nathan's evil twin who we've never seen? Oh, wait, they did that already with Ali Larter. Hmm. Well, that remains to be seen. And Kring says that Sylar will struggle with his dark side. Now there's something novel.

For those who can't get enough Heroes, the DVD and Blu-Ray versions will be released in August 2010 with a string of extras.
