NBC is bringing Heroes back to television in a 13-episode miniseries, Heroes: Reborn. The announcement came during the network’s coverage of the Winter Olympics, when it aired this 15 second promo:
Creator Tim Kring will be back at the helm once again, though Reborn will feature a new batch of characters this time around. NBC Entertainment President Jennifer Salke claims that even though there’ll a brand new cast, the network “won’t rule out the possibility of some of the show’s original cast members popping back in.” The back story and a proper introduction to the characters of Heroes: Reborn will come via a digital series preceding the television series’ launch.
The news has prompted both excitement from fans and derision from non-fans who populated Twitter with mock #NBCReboots including several Pink Lady and Jeff and Manimal variations. In which camp are you? Let us know in the comments below.
