In a press release issued on February, 22, 2014, NBC Universal revealed that Tim Kring’s award-winning “Heroes” will make a sort of homecoming on NBC in 2015. NBC Entertainment’s President, Jennifer Salke, announced that “Heroes” will be back at the Peacock network with a 13 episode miniseries entitled “Heroes Reborn.”
“Heroes” debuted on NBC in 2006 and gained a worldwide following with its “Save the Cheerleader, Save the World” tagline. As recently as last month, final season baddie Robert Knepper was seen posing for photos and signing autographs after he had attended a performance of the new “American Psycho” musical at London’s Almeida Theatre.
Season one of “Heroes” was one of the best seasons of sci-fi television, but the show never seemed to recover after its debut season. Was it the writer’s strike? Did it get too big, too fast? The new miniseries “Heroes Reborn” is Kring’s shot at redemption. He will be helming this “new stand-alone story arc” that “won’t rule out the possibility of some of the show’s original cast members popping back in,” according to Salke.
Ramping up to the premiere of “Heroes Reborn,” NBC will launch a digital series to familiarize fans with the crop of new characters. The official hashtag for the miniseries is #HeroesReborn. Get social with "Heroes" on Facebook and Twitter. Check out the teaser video promo on NBC.com.
