Oh happy daaayyyy!
It has been announced by NBC that a Heroes reboot, Heroes Reborn, will have a 13-episode mini-series in 2015!
Executive Producer Tim Kring will head up the project, which only makes sense since he’s the original creator and producer!
NBC Entertainment prez Jennifer Salke explained why they’re bringing it back, saying:
“The enormous impact ‘Heroes’ had on the television landscape when it first launched in 2006 was eye-opening. 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.”
zOMG! That would be so exciting! But we like the idea of a new cast too! New is fun!
We have the promo for it here, which isn’t the most thrilling thing in the world, but this whole concept has us pumped!
