It was definitely one of my favorite shows back in '06-10', and it was definitely one of the most original shows. It was a fascinating story that always made me think--it had unique, engaging, and human characters that really gained a wide audience. Sadly, it was cancelled in 2010 after season four. Even though it shouldn't have ended at all, it ended with a lot of hope and renewal. With four seasons under its belt, it was cancelled on the fans. Heroes still has a big following though one with conflicting feelings--fans can rejoice, Heroes is coming back.
And though I find issue with the unspoken of details, I'm very excited about it.
Well, a variation of it anyways. NBC announced that they've ordered 13 more episodes under a new-ish name, Heroes Reborn, and it will air in 2015.
Heroes is coming back
There’s no guarantee that we’ll see our favorites from the original series; no Peter, no Hiro and no Sylar have been announced. It is a standalone; a new story that follows the mythology of the original show. Other than that we don't know much about it.
The reality of the show seems so far away and a little grim--it will be coming out in 2015 (yay), and there is no guarantee we'll see our old favorites (boo), but the most important information though, the creator, Tim Kring, is on board as executive producer. With Kring on board this is promising to be great.
“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 Universal, 2014)
