Heroes Reborn NBC

You read that correctly, Heroes is coming back!

NBC has ordered 13 episodes in what they are calling an event miniseries to air in 2015. With its new moniker, Heroes Reborn, there’s no guarantee that we’ll see our favorites from the original series, but right now all we know is that it’s a standalone story arc and creator Tim Kring is on board as executive producer. The revived television series will be preceded by a digital series that’s going to introduce the characters and the storyline.

From NBC’s announcement, which came late last night via press release:

“The enormous impact “˜Heroes’ had on the television landscape when it first launched in 2006 was eye-opening,” said NBC Entertainment President Jennifer Salke. “Shows with that kind of resonance don’t come around often and we thought it was time for another installment. We’re thrilled that visionary creator Tim Kring was as excited about jumping back into this show as we were and we look forward to all the new textures and layers Tim plans to add to his original concept. Until we get closer to air in 2015, the show will be appropriately shrouded in secrecy, but we won’t rule out the possibility of some of the show’s original cast members popping back in.”

Heroes, which was a science fiction/superhero drama that aired on HBC from 2006-2010, was a big hit, and its first-season tagline, “Save The Cheerleaders, Save The World,” struck a chord with its viewers. The show featured a large cast of characters who were ordinary people who mysteriously become empowered with superhuman abilities. Following a comic book-like format, the story had its heroes and its villains.The main cast included Zachary Quinto, Milo Ventimiglia, Hayden Panettiere, Ali Larter, Kristen Bell, and many more.

I, for one, really loved the first two seasons, but felt the last two seasons were lackluster at best. Given that Kring is heading this up again, I think we might just be in for a treat! I can’t be the only one that’s hoping to see Hiro and Sylar back on the small screen. We’ll bring you more information as it becomes available but as you can see, people are very tight-lipped about it right now.

An interesting sidenote, on the NBC site for the series, it has “S5” listed next to the release information…methinks we might see some recurring roles. But for now, here’s a teaser video, too. Don’t forget to chime in and let us know what you think about this news, we love to hear from our readers!

Also, catch up with Heroes before the miniseries; the Season Blu-rays are all on sale right now for under $16 each:

  4. Very, very cool! I really liked the early ‘Heroes’ episodes. Season 3 was bushwhacked by the writer’s strike, and the show (esp. it’s writing and the direction things went) never really recovered. The real disappointment in the end was the failure to show the final episode where things were supposed to be tied up.
