NBC To Bring Back ‘Heroes’ As 13-Episode Event Miniseries In 2015

Heroes RebornOn the heels of Fox reviving its iconic serialized drama 24 as an event miniseries, NBC is doing the same with one of its most popular dramas of the past decade, superhero Heroes . Creator Tim Kring is back shepherding the 13-episode new standalone arc entitled Heroes: Reborn, which will air in 2015.
The original series chronicled intertwined stories of unrelated ordinary people who discovered they had superhuman abilities learned they were part of a grand plan that brought them together to change the world. Heroes Reborn will feature a new group of characters, though “we won’t rule out the possibility of some of the show’s original cast members popping back in,” NBC Entertainment president Jennifer Salke said. The characters and storylines from Heroes Reborn will be introduced in a digiral series, which will launch prior to the TV miniseries.

I know people like to shit on the Finale, but that shit was solid. Sadly, only two episodes in Season 3 came close to anything in Season 1. One of them being the excellent "Cold Snap" by my nigga Bryan Fuller.

It was a promising show that failed. I'd like to see them get a chance to deliver on that promise. I actually trust them to pull off a single, self contained season. Season 1 was great because it wasn't concerned with pushing an entire universe forward for an indefinite number of seasons. It was "save the cheerleader, save the world", and they pulled it off.

i'm not about picking apart every aspect of a show and trying to tell writers what they should be doing..like a lot of folks here...therefore, i get to actually ENJOY shit that I watch instead of analyzing it

Just watched an NBC pilot for a show called Believe which reminded me of Heroes. Interesting. I guess they learned from their mistake ( Wishful thinking) but probably not. Network TV need to stop thinking they can fool audiences with fillers and poor writing with unfinished narrative. Shows like Hannibal, The Following , Grimm and in some extent Dracula are a step in the right direction but they still got a lot of work to do to compete with AMC, FX, Sundance, HBO, Showtime and now Netflix shows. Bring in Heroes 2.0. It's probably the last hit drama NBC had. Might as well give it another go.

Everybody talks about how UK series are better because they don't draw them out like here. Might as well experiment; try one full season of a slate of miniseries only. See how that works; if something works out, bring it back like two seasons later for another mini-run. I mean, if they're just going to go back to the dried out well, might as well not dry 'em out in the first place; give the creatives some time to turn out quality without the pressure of having to strike gold repeatedly right away.
