NBC will revive Heroes for a limited run series in 2015, it has been announced. CelebNMusic247.com has learned that the new series will be called Heroes Reborn, which premiered on Saturday (February 22) during NBC’s primetime coverage of the Sochi Winter Olympic Games.
Here’s the drop:
Heroes Reborn‘s 2015 premiere will be preceded by a digital series that will introduce new storylines and characters. It is not currently known if any original cast members will be back.
NBC entertainment president Jennifer Salke credited Heroes creator Tim Kring with having made an “enormous impact” on “the television landscape” with the original program.
“Shows with [this] kind of resonance don’t come around often and we thought it was time for another installment,” Salke said in a press release.
She continued: “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.”
Kring is also currently working on the USA Network limited run series Dig, which will star Jason Isaacs as a federal agent investigating a centuries-old conspiracy in Jerusalem.
