Because no one was clamoring for it and everyone hated the final two seasons... Heroes is headed back to NBC!
The network aired a promo for a miniseries event titled "Heroes Reborn" last night, saying in a press release that it will be comprised of 13 episodes and air in 2015.
The reboot will tell a standalone story, be produced by creator Tim Kring and may or may not include characters from the original.
“The enormous impact Heroes had on the television landscape when it first launched in 2006 was eye-opening,” NBC Entertainment President Jennifer Salke said in announcing the project. “Shows with that kind of resonance don’t come around often and we thought it was time for another installment.
“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.”
