Heroes Miniseries Heading to NBC

Heroes Reborn Event MiniseriesHeroes is returning to primetime with an ‘event miniseries’ airing on NBC in 2015. Why? Because they can, and because the network believes there’s still an audience out that was left without a resolution and eager for more of Heroes.
Heroes Reborn will be executive produced by the show’s creator Tim Kring and will air 13 episodes in what the network’s describing as a “stand-alone story arc.” NBC isn’t saying anything about the characters or the plot, or confirming what actors – if any – will return for the miniseries.
“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.”
NBC also announced they’ll launch a digital series in support of the show’s premiere that will unveil info on the new plots and characters.
Heroes aired from 2006 to 2010 and averaged 14 million viewers over season one. Subsequent seasons saw a dramatic loss in viewership, and NBC opted not renew the show after the fourth season.
