Official synopsis lands for Heroes Reborn
NBC has released some limited first details for the upcoming Heroes Reborn...
Back when Heroes began in 2006, it married up critical acclaim with ratings success. The failure of the subsequent seasons to recapture what made Heroes work so well - not helped by a writers' strike landing in the midst of it all - has been well documented. But NBC clearly sees some unfinished business. As such, a 13-part miniseries, by the name of Heroes Reborn, is heading to the small screen.
NBC has released an official synopsis for Heroes Reborn, which reveals very little in truth, but does seem to confirm that we're heading more down the reboot road with this one. It reads thus:
"The saga behind the 2006 breakout series Heroes will continue as creator Tim Kring returns to the fold and develops new layers to his original superhero concept. This highly anticipated 13-episode miniseries will reconnect with the basic elements of the show’s first season where ordinary people were waking up to the fact that they had extraordinary abilities. This series will be preceded by a new digital series that will introduce audiences to the new characters and storylines that will take the Heroes phenomenon to new places".
We'll have more on Heroes Reborn in due course. As things stand, none of the original cast have been confirmed as returning.
