HEROES REBORN Teaser Trailer

NBC has announced that they’re bringing their canceled series HEROES back as a 13 episode miniseries titled “HEROES REBORN”. The production is also bringing back it’s original executive producer Tim Kring. Details are, of course, being kept under wraps but they went on the record to say that “we won’t rule out the possibility of some of the shows original cast members popping back in.”

Back before Heroes originally aired they were advertising it like crazy in movie theaters and I remember having a conversation with a friend of mine about how the show looked doomed from the get-go but because of it’s comic book nature I would be giving it a try. I was hooked by the first season, but by the third season I didn’t care about the convoluted characters and thinning storyline. Looks like I’m finding myself with the same initial feelings with the reboot. Oh well, guess I’ll give it a try when it airs lol.
