    Heroes Reborn... The NBC hit is coming back

    "NBC's sci-fi series Heroes is being revived as a 13-episode limited series, with creator Tim Kring back at the helm but a new cast of characters and a self-contained storyline that's "shrouded in secrecy. The series, which aired from 2006-2010, will return in 2015 as Heroes Reborn,NBC Entertainment president Jennifer Salke announced Saturday, adding that some former cast members might "pop" back in for cameos. The characters and plots will be introduced in a digital series that will precede the TV premiere."

    Season 2 got butchered because of a huge writers strike.
    Instead of waiting it out they handed the scripting duties off to ??? the local janitor? and thus many story disasters were born.
    Every season after appeared to be trying to fix those issues but many scars remained.

    I went off it after what happened to Peter at the start of series 2. He slowly developed into the ultimate kick ass superhero over the whole of the first series, then lost all his powers and had to start again. I really wanted to see him develop even further. I still watched the rest of the series but for me it never lived up to its promise.

    I enjoyed most of heroes although I think certain aspects dampened the storyline with some character personality changes and some situations feeling dragged out and monotonous.

    It should be interesting to see what the new cast can do

    There's two main issues... it's really not the show's fault which is why I believe it can still be great.

    A. They serialized the characters. The initial concept was to constantly refresh characters. Meaning have them on for say a season, and then close their arc and bring in other people. The older characters could come back but the point was to bring in new people. The studio decided it was easier to market and boost rating/viewership by keeping popular characters. Ergo, some of the best ones got milked and dragged out. Peter should've been cut after season 1, maybe season 2. When he became invincible Kring had a problem... thus the creative was tossed under the bus. Also, keeping Hero and his time and space ability was a "mine field" as Kring put it... and with keeping him the duration of the show they definitely stepped on a few.

    B. The writer's strike which happened going into season two. This just created a big cluster$#@!... story lines were crossed, patched, and forced into a working solution. Newer characters were completely dropped and so it compounded back to bringing older character back on... and then it was just a total downward spiral.

    This limited series with new characters is going back to what Heroes was suppose to do... Now it's up to Kring to make the show what it could've been.

    Though I agree that after season 1, the show declined in quality and appeal one episode at at time and that a new refreshed series on a blank canvas is great in prospect.
    My pet hate is starting a show that doesn't end, that's either after one series or multiple.
    As I said I agree the new series (if done correctly) is the best move; however it really $#@!ing annoys me that they're not even going to wrap up that story that they so hopelessly $#@!ed up.

    Heroes was cancelled on the biggest cliffhanger ever, (Claire at the circus) and it tears me to bits even after losing interest, that I don't get to see the aftermath
