NBC is all set to be bring the “Heroes” franchise back from the dead as a stand-alone arc miniseries. Running from 2006-2010, Heroes told the stores of seemingly ordinary individuals who discovered they had extraordinary powers.
While not much is known about the storyline, NBC Entertainment prexy Jennifer Salke has said the following:
“The enormous impact ‘Heroes’ had on the television landscape when it first launched in 2006 was eye-opening. Shows with that kind of resonance don’t come around often and we thought it was time for another installment. 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.”
The network announced their plans for the new miniseries, set to debut in 2015, with a teaser during Saturday’s Olympic telecast. You can watch it, above.
