‘Heroes’ returning to NBC with ‘Reborn’ miniseries

NBC will revive Heroes for a limited run series in 2015, it has been announced.

A teaser for Heroes Reborn premiered on Saturday (February 22) during NBC’s primetime coverage of the Sochi Winter Olympic Games.

Heroes Reborn’s 2015 premiere will be preceded by a digital series that will introduce new storylines and characters. It is not currently known if any original cast members will be back.

NBC entertainment president Jennifer Salke credited Heroes creator Tim Kring with having made an “enormous impact” on “the television landscape” with the original programme.

“Shows with [this] kind of resonance don’t come around often and we thought it was time for another instalment,” Salke said in a press release.

She continued: “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 originally aired on NBC from 2006 to 2010, and starred Hayden Panettiere, Ali Larter, Masi Oka and Zachary Quinto as people born with super-human powers.

The first season of Heroes was fantastic but with season two, it quickly became a muddled mess with characters losing/gaining/swapping powers seemingly every two minutes. Lets hope this incarnation has a bit more continuity.
