Hayden Panettiere - Heroes Reborn: NBC Bringing One Of Its Most Successful Shows Back To Life As Miniseries

Good news for any Heroes fans out there – NBC is reviving its hit show in miniseries form. NBC announced the news during its Olympic broadcast on Saturday. The new show, appropriately titled Heroes: Reborn will premiere in 2015 and get a 13-episode run, according to E! News. The series even got a brief teaser during the Olympic coverage.

The big question is, which of the original actors will return?

 

So far, not much has been announced about Reborn, apart from the fact that it will be happening. The return of stars like Hayden Panettiere, Zachary Quinto, Jack Coleman and Milo Ventimiglia is yet to be announced. Fingers crossed, Heroes fans. On the plus side, showrunner Tim Kring is definitely returning.

The original Heroes ran between 2006 and 2010 and spawned legions of faithful fans, but the creative team aren’t looking to the past for inspiration. Instead, the new show will feature brand new storylines and expand on the Heroes mythology. "The enormous impact Heroes had on the television landscape when it first launched in 2006 was eye-opening," NBC Entertainment President Jennifer Salke said in a statement.

It just wouldn't be Heroes without Zachary Quinto and co., would it?

"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."

So that’s happening.
