NBC favorite “Heroes” will be returning with a new 13-episode, standalone story arc in 2015 with the show’s original creator and executive producer Tim Kring. According to Spoiler TV on Feb. 23, the new show will be an event miniseries.

NBC Entertainment President Jennifer Salke said the original series had an “enormous impact” on the television when it first launched in 2006. “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.”

The original series followed an unrelated group of average people who suddenly discovered they had superhuman abilities. Over time, they learned they were all part of a larger plan meant to change the world.

Prior to the launch of the miniseries, NBC plans to launch a digital series designed to introduce fans to the characters and the new storylines. It is hoped that by engaging with fans through social media, they can leverage the fan base into viewership.

The original series ran from 2006 through 2010 and stacked up some impressive numbers. An immediate hit, the show regularly earned 14.5 million viewers and was ranked as television’s #1 new drama.
