About the series
Heroes Reborn is an American mini-series that reconnects with the elements of itspredecessor – Heroes, which first aired in 2006 and was cancelled in 2010. Executively produced by Tim Kring (Heroes’ creator) for NBC, Heroes Reborn follows the lives of ordinary people who discover that they have extraordinary abilities. Season 1 of the show premiered on NBC on September 24, 2015 and takes off about one year after the plot of the original series ended.
After the terrorist attack in Odessa, Texas, the US government blames those who havespecial abilities for the attack and forces them into hiding. In fear of being hunted downand killed, many of them seek revenge, while some try to discover the truth behind theOdessa conspiracy. At the same time, many others are discovering extraordinary abilities, but continue living a “normal” life. Throughout the show, the new heroes will meet some of the old ones, including HIro Nakamura, Mohinder Suresh and The Haitian.
Viewer reception and chances of renewal
Considering that the original Heroes lost popularity very quickly, it is possible that the viewer will not “bite” and this series will not be continued. Though there is some hope from the producer, Tim Kring, that he can write enough material for the 13-episode order of Heroes Reborn and create the drama that the viewer wants to see on the screen, it isstill unclear whether Heroes Reborn will come back for season 2. If that happens, we will see the continuation of the story next year.
UPDATED December 22, 2015: Episode 10 of NBC’s new action and fantasy drama series was shown on November 19th and the show has left for a holiday break. The debut season of Heroes Reborn is expected to resume on NBC on January 7, 2016. The ratings have been rather average, so there is no way to predict at the moment whether the show has any chances to get renewed.
UPDATED January 15, 2016: Heroes Reborn, originally planned as a one-time event miniseries will not be transformed into any other format. NBC chairman Bob Greenblatt confirmed that Tim Kring has no plans of resuming work on the next chapter of the show. Heroes Reborn was a modest performer in the ratings department, and that`s another reason why a renewal was not expected.
