Remember The HEROES TV Show From A Few Years Back? It's Returning!!! Save The Cheerleader, Save The World!
I remember the Heroes mantra from a few years ago circa 2006, "save the cheerleader, save the world". When Heroes started on television, I was so enthralled with it that it was all I could talk or think about. It broke boundaries on television as a "superhero" show that was doing it where other shows had failed.
The show was totally amazing and easily and ode to Marvel and DC Comics, with superheroes who seemed to be randomly given powers and coming together through events not of their own doing, we watched their powers and ultimately the their story develop to a climactic end. Let's not forget the most evil villain we've ever seen in the form of the unstoppable and enigmatic Sylar and his clock ticking each time he appeared.
Now NBC is talking about bring the Heroes back yet again. Perhaps finally with the world going superhero crazy and every character imaginable being brought to both cinematic release and TV, the Heroes may now stand a new chance of succeeding.
Here's Varity's take:
"NBC is re-engaging the “Heroes” team, ordering 13 episodes of an event miniseries to air next year with series creator Tim Kring at the helm.
NBC teased the plan to revive the franchise with a promo spot that aired during Saturday’s telecast of Olympics coverage (watch above).
The brief spot featured a fade-in on the “Heroes” logo with the word “Reborn” added along with “Coming 2015.”
There had been rumors last year that the Peacock was looking to revive the mystery-fantasy drama that aired from 2006-2010. Kring is set to exec produce 13 new episodes.
Details of the storyline are being kept under wraps. It’s described as a stand-alone arc. A digital series will bow prior to the TV return to introduce (or perhaps re-introduce) fans to the characters that will be the focus of “Reborn.”
“The enormous impact ‘Heroes’ had on the television landscape when it first launched in 2006 was eye-opening,” said NBC Entertainment prexy 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.”
The original series starred Zachary Quinto, Hayden Panettiere, Jack Colman, Ali Larter, Adrian Pasdar, Milo Ventigmiglia and Greg Grunberg as a motley group of people who slowly realize they have extraordinary powers."
