Someone’s been paying close attention to the event series return of “24” and that person is “Heroes” creator Tim Kring. It was announced during NBC’s primetime coverage of the 2014 Winter Olympics that “Heroes Reborn” will air on the network in 2015.
NBC says they are keeping all storyline and character details under wraps or now, but the stand-alone series will be executive produced by Kring. “Shows with that kind of resonance don’t come around often and we thought it was time for another installment,” NBC Entertainment President Jennifer Salke said in a release. “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.”
While NBC is being secretive on the details, Salke adds that it’s possible some familiar faces may return for the miniseries. NBC will also launch a digital series to introduce new characters and storylines to the mythology before it premieres. “Heroes” originally ran on NBC from 2006-2010.
