When it first premiered the NBC series Heroes had been lauded at its beginning and then subsequently criticized as redundant in its last seasons. Personally I don’t agree with that, I love the series, all of it, so much in fact that I was upset and disappointed when the show was canceled and ever since then I have been anxiously awaiting the (mini)series return scheduled for later this fall.
There have been casting news, Zackery Quinton will NOT be returning as Sylar. However HRG, Hiro, and The Haitian are all confirmed as well as Luke will be returning. No word though on Hayden Panettiere, she has mentioned that she has not been asked to return but Ali Larter has previously said no to returning as she was staring in the crime drama series Legends. And EW reports that actor Greg Grunberg will be returning to his role as Matt Parkman. As for the plot details here is the offical synopsis:
“From original creator Tim Kring, the Supernatural phenomenon begins again with a fresh crop of inspiring heroes who take on the ultimate struggle between those with extraordinary abilities and those with nefarious motives to hunt and harness their powers. Epic adventures await these newly empowered allies as they cross paths with some of the original characters (such as the beloved “HRG” and fan-favorite time-traveler Hiro Nakamura), unlocking the mysterious fate of the universe and their place within it.”
Heroes Reborn is scheuled to premiere later this fall.
