At least week's Saturn Awards, Heroes creator Tim Kring discussed his plans for season three, the volume entitled "Villains."
"You're going to see a lot of bad guys in this one," Kring said to Sci Fi Wire. "The idea, also, is we're playing off the idea of our characters as heroes or villains. So it's really the duality of good and evil. All of our characters were given these powers and possess these powers, and at some point it becomes sort of free will and human nature as to what you're going to do with that.
And all of us are given the choice to make decisions that lead us down very dark paths or towards heroic ends. And so, literally, every one of our characters gets faced with that dilemma."
What does the future hold for Hiro and company in season three of Heroes?
Kring also assured his fans that the new volume will try to delve deeper into the psyches of the show's characters.
"One of the things that this volume is going to do that, I think, is really going to be fun for the audience is that there were very initial sort of primal questions that the show asked," Kring said. "Who am I? What's happening to me? How am I connected? Where are these powers coming from? All of those questions get reframed and turned on their head in a very interesting way in this volume."
We can't wait to find out what that way is!
