Remember Heroes? It had one really great first season, and then a horrible second, third, and fourth season. Well, NBC – following in the footsteps of the Twin Peaks revival – has decided they want to revive the series, five years after its cancellation.
Heroes: Reborn will be a limited miniseries coming this fall.
Some familiar faces are returning such as Masi Oka, who played Hiro Nakamura and is currently a series regular on Hawaii Five-0. In a statement, Oka said: “I’m excited to return to my Heroes roots. Hiro Nakamura was such an inspirational role to play, and I’m hoping the fans will enjoy seeing him back on TV.”
Series creator Tim Kring was excited about Oka’s return, as well: “We are thrilled to have Masi back in the Heroes family. The character of Hiro Nakamura was such a huge part of the first series’ success, and a gigantic fan favorite. We felt the fans would really love seeing him back in action again.”
In addition, Jack Coleman will reprise his role as Noah Bennet a.k.a. The Man in the Horn-Rimmed Glasses (HRG). New cast members include Zachary Levi, Ryan Guzman, Robbie Kay, Danika Yarosh, Judith Shekoni, Kiki Sukezane, Henry Zebrowski, and Gatlin Green.
The saga behind the 2006 breakout series Heroes will continue as creator Tim Kring returns to the fold and develops new layers to his original superhero concept. This highly anticipated 13-episode miniseries will reconnect with the basic elements of the show’s first season where ordinary people were waking up to the fact that they had extraordinary abilities.
