Yesterday original creator and executive producer Tim Kring and NBC announced the return of the iconic series “Heroes” with the fan base still active, the network has decided to bring the series back in a 13 episode new story arc entitled “Heroes Reborn,” details of the story-line and characters are being kept under wraps as of right now.
“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.”
NBC plans to debut the new arc in 2015, with its return “Heroes Reborn” will launch a digital series prior to the 2015 premiere, it will introduce the characters and new story-lines. NBC is hoping the social media route will get fans to reconnect with the franchise
