Heroes was an excellent show that epitomized a time in place. When LOST was giving viewers questions, Heroes was vowing to explain the mythology. Like the ABC series, NBC soon learned what happened when fans got the answers they claimed they wanted and didn’t like them. Which is why all mythology crap is inherently dumb and it should be all about the characters.
The first season was critically acclaimed and much watched. Than it had to do it for a second season and the writers’ strike happened which you could defiantly say hurt the series. It would never recover from the heights of season 1, cancelled after season 4.
Now it appears that in a resurgent age of superheroes, Heroes will be rebooted (reborn if you will). There had been rumors that the property would relaunch in the form of a comic and that Microsoft had inquired about making a fifth season to air on the Xbox platform. Now NBC has made the move to reboot the series with a 13 episode miniseries. At the head of this new series will be creator Tim Kring.
“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.”
Not much else is known about the series at this time. As the above quote stated it is still uncertain if the series will feature original cast members like Zachary Quinto, Hayden Panettiere, Jack Colman, Ali Larter, Adrian Pasdar, Milo Ventigmiglia and Greg Grunberg
