NBC has tapped original series creator Tim Kring to bring back the show. Deemed 'Heroes Reborn', the 13-episode event miniseries will star a new cast of characters and follow a story line independent from the show's original 4-season run, although former cast members would likely "pop" in for cameos.
NBC Entertainment president Jennifer Salke said in a statement:
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.
NBC also shared plans to launch a digital series months before the 2015 premiere in order to introduce the new characters and storylines.
