NBC is Bringing Back HEROES as a Miniseries
I know we're late to the game on this news, but I got to it as soon as I could. Just in case you didn't already hear, NBC is bringing back their Superhero series Heroes as a 13-episode miniseries event called Heroes Reborn.
Creator Tim Kring is back to develop the series, and it's set to premiere in 2015. NBC teased the miniseries with a brief TV sport during its the Winter Olympics coverage Saturday. They also plan to roll out a digital tie-in ahead of it's premiere. The plot for Heroes Reborn is being kept under wraps.
NBC Entertainment President Jennifer Salke had this to say in a statement:
“The enormous impact Heroes had on the television landscape when it first launched in 2006 was eye-opening. 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.”
I'm sure they could get the entire cast involved with it again if they wanted to. The first season of Heroes was pretty amazing, but after that it just progressively got worse. Hopefully they are able to bring back that magic that the first season had. Who know maybe what they have planned will be even better.
