After the surprise of the 20 second trailer that first revealed Heroes would finally be returning to the airwaves, information about NBC's Heroes season five, Heroes Reborn, has been a little scarce. But in advance of the network upfronts, and in the midst of a slew of renewals, cancellation, and pick-up announcements, a little more info about the new season of Heroes has slipped out.
Very little of it is substantial, as what passes for a synopsis here will show you.
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. This series will be preceded by a new digital series that will introduce audiences to the new characters and storylines that will take the “Heroes” phenomenon to new places.
Not much new there, is there? But there's also this spiffy logo!
We also know, though, thanks to NBC's official Heroes site, that "the Heroes saga continues in the summer of 2015 as new and returning characters collide in the epic and never-ending battle between the powers of good and the forces of evil."
So, here's what we can now tell you: Heroes Reborn isn't a full-blown reboot, as some original characters will be back, there will be 13 episodes, and we should see the first of those (or at least that digital series that they're using for a lead-in) will appear in Summer of 2015.
