Unless you are Ryan Garcia who was out galavanting around watching Broadway shows of some sort while the Superbowl was on, then you probably saw the quick trailer for the new Heroes Reborn series coming to NBC.
First off – who watches Broadway instead of the Superbowl? HA – I’m kidding. Secondly – what? Heroes is back!? You can count me #1 Cheerleader!
A 13-episode miniseries entitled Heroes Reborn will debut later this year, and NBC offered us a teaser Superbowl Sunday by revealing Noah Bennet, AKA The Man with the Horn Rimmed Glasses. See below:
While the plot remains a mystery – NBC’s description of the series sounds like a bit of a redemption for the way the series ran off the rails after the first season.
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 wake up to the fact that they have extraordinary abilities.
Original cast member Jack Coleman will reprise his role as HRG, and Zachary Levi (of NBC’s “Chuck” and the Marvel franchise “Thor”) will join the cast as well.
Oh please, please, please, please don’t screw this up NBC. Get those writers plenty of water, and plenty of bacon, because we all know that bacon can save anything… even cheerleaders.
