Earlier today rumors started swirling that Syfy was in talks to continue recently-cancelled NBC show The Event. However, before fans could get their hopes up too much, the network shot down any such notion via a Twitter message.

"To answer some questions I've been getting, at this time we have no plans to pick up The Event," tweeted Syfy's Craig Engler from his official Twitter account in response to buzz about the show continuing as a miniseries on the network.

Whether those talks are actually happening (or have already happened), we may never know. Perhaps there were some discussions taking place but terms couldn't be agreed upon. Or maybe Engler is just playing coy until there is something official to announce. Either way, a return for The Event looks like a long-shot at this point in time.
