Set to air in 2015, Reborn will be a 13-episode miniseries featuring a stand-alone arc. It is worth noting that the first Heroes series was originally planned as having a different stand-alone story arc each season. However, those who watched the 2006-2010 run will remember that the show ended up following the first season characters throughout its lifespan.
NBC Entertainment President Jennifer Salke said:
The enormous impact ‘Heroes’ had on the television landscape when it first launched in 2006 was eye-opening,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.
