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

We were thrilled when we heard the news of Kiefer Sutherland once again teaming up with Fox for an epic series of a show!
After 24, we wondered what else the man could properly do with his time, but he found it with Touch.
Like we told you before, the new series deals with a father learning his mute son has a very special and unique gift.
And Kiefer couldn't be happier with the new project, saying:

All right! Could lightening strike twice for FOX?!
The network has reportedly picked up the new Tim Kring pilot Touch, which stars 24's very own Jack Bauer AKA Kiefer Sutherland as a father who discovers that his mute son possesses a unique and incredible special gift, for a 13-episode midseason order!
According to the official press release:

We can only hope and pray that the Arrested Development movie doesn’t suffer the same fate!
The news of Heroes’ impending cancellation was announced last May, but fans saw some light at the end of the tunnel, as reports had arisen about the possibility of a Heroes movie.
Alas, the reports were wrong, and the Heroes movie is NOT happening. Here’s what show creator Tim Kring had to say on the subject:
“No decision has been made, but the Heroes brand is an extremely broad premise. It was a premise about ordinary people, an undisclosed number of people all over the world, who were waking up to these extraordinary abilities. Any number of stories could happen around that. We never posited a single ending or a single premise. It wasn’t about getting off of an island or stopping something from happening. We told stories in volumes that had a beginning, a middle, and an end. Those volumes could go on and on and on with many different characters. As a result, that Heroes universe is something that can be tapped into again in many ways.”
Looks like there MAY still be more Heroes in our future…just not in our immediate future, AND certainly not on NBC.
Would U like to see more Heroes in the future?
