Bryan Fuller leaving Heroes (again)

Well that didn't take long. Last season of Heroes was, shall we say, not the best. The storylines were beyond convoluted, way too many characters and a general apathy for general plot. Until about six or so episodes till the end, when producer/writer Bryan Fuller came back to the show. His work drastically improved the quality of the show and even managed to salvage the season into something semi-respectable. Until he decided to leave, according to Ain't It Cool News. Fuller has recently left the show for other work. "Development was really starting to heat up, And it appears like I may be writing multiple pilots for NBC so that wasn't leaving a ton of room for 'Heroes,' unfortunately," the star writer-producer tells AICN exclusively. "We crafted some really great arcs for the season that I'm excited to see come to fruition. I love that cast dearly and am sad to go, but the plate -- she was over-flowing." So let me get this straight. He says the show has some overall arcs set up. That really doesn't give me much hope. Honestly, last season became quite a chore to watch, and part of me wanted to finish it merely for a sense of closure. There's a bigger picture here that should be looked at. Why would Fuller leave a proven show to work on other pilots? Perhaps he knows that the show won't make it past this year? NBC has ordered a shortened season for the next volume, which means we'll be seeing about six fewer episodes than we're used to. It's entirely possible that the show could be in such good shape that Fuller isn't needed (which would mean he's already written every episode for the upcoming season...not likely). I'm inclined to think that the show won't make it past this season, and Fuller is jumping ship while he can. Do I know Fuller? No. Am I questioning his character? Not at all. Just a little suspect is all. Bryan Fuller leaving Heroes (again)
