NBC ordered a 13 episode revival for the 2006 series titled Heroes Reborn.

According to The Hollywood Reporter and Variety, Heroes Reborn will debut in 2015 with creator Tim Kring on board.

The revival of the series was teased during NBC’s Olympics coverage Saturday, February 22, however not much is known of the plot for Heroes Reborn.

Variety reports that the series is described as a stand-alone arc, and there will be a digital tie-in ahead of its debut.

NBC Entertainment president Jennifer Salke said, “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.”

Heroes ran for four seasons and starred a slew of stars including Zachary Quinto, Ali Larter, Milo Ventimiglia, and Hayden Panettiere among others.

You can catch up on all the Heroes goodies on Netflix now, and expect Heroes Reborn sometime in 2015.
