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 were waking up to the fact that they had extraordinary abilities. This series will be preceded by a new digital series that will introduce audiences to the new characters and storylines that will take the Heroes phenomenon to new places.
I recently sat down and watched all of the first two seasons of Heroes in a combination of binge watching and Trials Fusion playing. Now anyone playing Trials Fusion will know that for background watching you need something not very intense or distracting and I thought Heroes would be a great idea.
I forgot how well written a lot of the first season was, especially any scenes with HRG, who was a great addition of mystery to the show.
I wasn’t the most enthusiastic when I first heard that NBC’s Heroes, which I’d given up on after a bad third season, and only heard worse things about the fourth, but considering this new official synopsis claims to ‘reconnect with the basic elements of the show’s first season’. I have to admit I’m a little more inclined to be excited.
Add this to the fact that we’ll be getting a new cast of characters (Thank god, no more overused Nikki or overpowered Hiro) I’m actually pretty psyched for this.
But I’ve been wrong before.
