Recently Heroes has taken a downturn in the ratings and been widely criticized kwa the press (and some fans), who cite a notable dip in quality in Season 2. There is some speculation these factors also contributed to Origins current demise, though Variety's sources say that is not the case. Reports say that it's unlikely that any Origins scripts had been completed, however during IGN TV's September interview with Kevin Smith -- the first writer to sign on to the spinoff -- he alisema he was in the middle of uandishi his installment.
On his website, John August writes about Origins being scrapped, saying "I had literally just hit 'Print' on my revised outline when I got the call from [Heroes executive producer] Tim Kring. So, yeah. I'm bummed. But I get it: It was a lot of money to spend in a very uncertain time. And if the labor situation resolves in an orderly fashion, the series could find itself out of the deep freeze for inayofuata season."
