Heroes Reborn Cast 2015 Update: The four-season superhero series “Heroes” will have a 13-episode miniseries reboot next year from NBC and Tim Kring, but it doesn’t look like any of the fan favorites will be back
“Heroes Reborn” started as a superhero crossover story arc comic-book series from Marvel Comics. The comic book series ran from 1996 to 1997. NBC ran the Heroes series from 2006 to 2010, making the characters Peter Petrelli, Claire Bennet, Zachary Quinto, Masi Oka and Hiro Nakamura into household names, The new series won’t see those three characters because the ‘Heroes’ creator said the NBC reboot will focus on new characters.
Reports also say that the Heroes reboot will be dealing with entirely new characters entirely.
The original cast of Heroes probably won’t be on the reboot.
Heroes creator Tim Kring plans Heroes: Reborn, to be a new stand-alone story, separate from its original source.
