Heroes Reborn is gearing up for its fiery return on September 24th on NBC, with an interactive and photo experience, in the middle of Times Square, NYC. Held just today, September 12th (12pm-10pm) and tomorrow, September 13th (10am-8pm), in the middle of the pedestrian plaza (Broadway between 46th & 47th St), this fun fan experience lets you feel what its like to look like a hero, and to be a hero.

“Memories are funny things. the good ones fill our lives with meaning, while other memories can deceive. When you look back on the decisions you’ve made in your life, the one thing you don’t wanna feel… is regret.”
That is the voice of HRG aka Noah Bennett (Jack Coleman), who in our original series went from bad guy to good guy, and back again as fast as a teenager changes clothes. He is back in Heroes Reborn, the 13-episode limited series that takes place years after Claire Bennett outs her own kind on national TV.
NBC has released new character motion posters for Heroes Reborn, the miniseries continuation of Tim Kring‘s Heroes, which ran from 2006-2010 on the network. Kring is also in charge of this 13-episode series, which goes back to basics – when ordinary people discover extraordinary powers.
Check out the motion posters and the ones set to music below.
I loved Heroes. In 2006, it was a unique concept for television – people who developed extraordinary abilities, and the people who attacked, feared, and loved them. I loved Peter Petrelli (Milo Ventimiglia), whose ability to take on other people’s powers made his every move an interesting one. I loved Dr. Suresh (Sendhil Ramamurthy), the earnest, genius, easy-on-the-eyes researcher. I even loved Sylar (Zachary Quinto), the first really terrifying villain I had seen in a long time.
So I will be tuning in for Heroes Reborn, a 13-episode series set to air September 24th on NBC.

If you’re like me, you were really looking forward to yesterday’s premiere of the third season of Heroes. Like a lot of people, I wasn’t so impressed with the second season, so it was nice to go back and re-watch the first season, which still holds up as one of the best set of episodes of the last few years. Watching these episodes again has reminded me why I enjoyed this show so much when it first started.
Of course, if you’ve seen the show before, you know all about the story. Various people around the world discover that they have extraordinary powers. They quickly learn that not only are they not alone, but that there are evil people who want to use their powers for nefarious deeds. Predictably, they save the cheerleader, they stop the exploding man, and they set up the beginning of the second season. What struck me most about these episodes is how well they hold up. Sure, I didn’t get the big surprises anymore, but I found myself really enjoying the performances and how all the story bits fit together. Little touches like Linderman’s name being mentioned in the first episode, the evolution of Mr. Bennet from villain to hero, and the build up and eventual reveal of series villain Syler. You can tell in the first season that the creators of the show had a plan of how the story would go and it made for really compelling TV.
