Heroes Reborn: Actually Coming to NBC!

by at . Comments

The reboot no one ever wanted to see as received a green light at NBC.

The network confirmed via promo (below) last night that "Heroes Reborn" will air 13 episodes in 2015, telling a standalone story that will once again be written by Heroes creator Tim Kring.

No details regarding the plot or characters have been released, but a Web series will precede the television series and give us an idea of what to expect.

The idea of Heroes being revived was first broached about a year ago but not taken too seriously because... come on. Few shows on TV history have burned out as quickly and terribly as this one.

“The enormous impact Heroes had on the television landscape when it first launched in 2006 was eye-opening,” NBC Entertainment President Jennifer Salke said in announcing the project. “Shows with that kind of resonance don’t come around often and we thought it was time for another installment.

“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.”

Check out some other planned spinoff ideas below and then sound off...

Heroes was one of my favorite shows. But it was a so that really made me mad. This was a great show but the writers did not know where to go with it. They killed off most of the character that you cared about in season one, had great actors from the original Star Trek but did nothing with them would start storyline you got into then NBC would take the show off for a month and when it came back on they would be on a totally different storyline. The writing on this show screwed this show. They even made jokes about the writing on TBBT. Get some great writers and I will watch.

I'm so excited the show was a thousand times better than most of the stuff on air today. Plus the show deserves a ending.
