NBC Is Bringing Heroes Back To TV Despite No One Wanting That Ever

Will saving the cheerleader also save the writing on this show?


Ah, 2006; that innocent time when Twitter was brand-new, Pluto was still a planet, and Heroes was the best show on TV. Little did we know that slowly, over the next few years, this wonderful superhero drama would become a sad version of the show we once loved. But don’t worry, Heroes fans (?), because NBC is out of original ideas bringing it back.

During NBC’s primetime Olympics broadcast last night, they announced that Heroes Reborn will be a 13-episode series airing in 2015, executive produced once again by Tim Kring. They’re calling it a “new instalment” but saying that familiar faces might show up, so who really knows. At least Zachary Quinto is too busy on American Horror Story to come back as Sylar because I am so over that already.
