Heroes Season Preview: Meet the Villains, Part I

at . Comments

The Heroes season three premiere is less than a week away. With that in mind, USA Today recently previewed the chapter called "Villains."

"We built this volume around the idea of hitting the ground with a tremendous amount of pace and adrenaline," Heroes creator Tim Kring told the newspaper.

Kring went on to explain that this Monday's first episode sets the tone for the season: "We wanted to let the audience know this is going to be a roller-coaster ride," he added.

Sendhil Ramamurthy, who plays Mohinder on the show, echoes that excitement.

"The villains bring a little bit darker feel to the show. Everyone's stakes are so much higher," the actor said. "There's so much happening this season."
