NBC, for reasons passing understanding, has ordered a 13-episode miniseries reboot of Heroes to air in 2015. The series will be titled Heroes Reborn, and will be helmed by the original Heroes’ creator, Tim Kring.
Heroes squandered all of its critical praise and much of its ratings clout in the last three seasons of its life—we gave its series finale an F. Heroes Reborn announced itself to the world in a short, vague spot during the Olympics on Saturday night, which does not inspire a lot of confidence.
From the press release:
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.
