Heroes - NBC Bringing Back Show For New 13 Episode Mini-Series?

NBC announced over a week ago that they are bringing back the 'Heroes' TV show for a 13 episode mini-series entitled "Heroes: Reborn".

The original series ran for 4 seasons (although most people gave up i it before season 2 ended) and was cancelled in 2010. It had a phenomenal following in the first two years but floundered badly with poor writing and storyline progression by the fourth bringing a lot of negative press and reviews to what could have been a fantastic ongoing show.

“The enormous impact Heroes had on the television landscape when it first launched in 2006 was eye-opening,” said NBC Entertainment President Jennifer Salke. “Shows with that kind of resonance don’t come around often and we thought it was time for another instalment. 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.”

So who do you want to see return? Hiro? Claire? Sylar? Peter? Aaaaarrrgh, this could be brilliant or terrible. Let's hope it's brilliant!
