The hit-show Heroes is being resurrected by NBC for a special 2015 miniseries event. Heroes Reborn will consist of thirteen new episodes, and will be produced by the original creator and executive producer Tim Kring. The relaunch is set to premiere in 2015, with a digital series being released sometime sooner to introduce new characters and story lines.
“The enormous impact ‘Heroes’ had on the television landscape when it first launched in 2006 was eye-opening,” said NBC Entertainment President Jennifer Salke. “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.”
