Looks like NBC is bringing back Heroes in 2015 as a 13-episode stand alone arc called Heroes Reborn with new characters, but they're not ruling out cameos from some of the original cast. The only other confirmed detail is that Tim Kring will be back as executive producer.


Hmh. Was not impressed by where the original went. Not sure if I would enjoy this.


Mild excite.

I liked the original series, if only season 1, season 2 part 1, season 3's middle, and the last season.


It lost its way a bit in seasons 2 & 3, but I think they made up for it in season 4.
I'm looking forward to reborn.


Much as I liked the character of Hiro, I can only hope this mini-series has no time travel in it.

The Exchange

Only watched the first season of the original show (was warned by too many people about further seasons), but generally I feel if they would have wrapped up the story by the end of season one it would have been a truly awesome story.

So I'm pretty excited about this Heroes Reborn thing.

Watch Misfits instead and be entertained by what Heroes never was.

Heroes season one was pretty amazing. I seemed as if the writers had no plan for season 2 and beyond. I just boggles the mind that seasons 2-4 were written by the same team. In particular season 4 was just painful to watch and killed off any love I had for the characters.

The short lived tv series Alphas picks up were I though they should have gone after season 1 with the formation of a super group. Alphas...<sniff>...gone so soon.

Heroes season one pulled in over 14 million viewers and NBC would like to recapture some of that magic but with the same lead writer I'm not convinced that is possible.

Trying again with Heroes, huh? That's brave of them.

With that said, Heroes season 1 was one of the best shows (if not the best show) on TV at the time.

Every other season was basically unwatchable. (Well, Season 4 was... tolerable.)

Season two was only half a season. The first half was so bad that the producers publicly apologized and promised to start over with the second half of the season. Then the writers strike started and they didn't have a second half of the season. Always thought the producers should have plowed ahead anyway in the spirit of making it up to the viewers no matter the strike.

Too true about the quality of Alphas. I couldn't believe they canceled Alphas to free up money for Defiance. Such a waste. Keep in mind that we're talking about the same network here with both of these shows. NBC owns Syfy. They have already tried this idea twice and squandered both attempts.

Ugh, really? They cancelled it to free up money for that turd? That just makes it sting even worse.

The season 2 finale...what an ending. Poor Gary is the only living boy in New York and will be forever thanks to Syfy.

Seconding this. The problem I had with Heroes is that it tries to be too big and too complex - the characters all originated in different parts of the world, and when it tries to keep you updated on them all you end up following too many plots at once. When it finally brings characters together it feels like there was too much buildup.

Misfits, on the other hand, is contained. The 5 main characters are together more often than not and they all live in the same area. In addition, the powers are more limited than the ones in Heroes (perfect control over time travel and teleportation? Really?) yet still manage to get used in some creative ways.

Anyway, that's my take on it. YMMV.
