View Full Version : ‘Heroes’ Revival Coming to MSN via XBox?

04-18-2013, 05:57 AM
Whereas the rumors of NBC reviving ‘Friends’ proved to be nothing more than hearsay and a hoax, the latest possible revival is all-too-real. Sources say that the oft-debated superpowers drama ‘Heroes‘ may receive an unexpected revival as MSN pushes toward original content through its XBox gaming system, but would the reunion manage to return the all-star cast?

NBC’s ‘Heroes’ might have spiraled out of control in its later seasons, squandering its initial ratings and critical success, but the latest news could prove the most shocking of all. TVLine reports that MSN has reportedly entered talks to revive the super-powered franchise following its 2010 cancellation, positioning a revival series as original content for distribution via Xbox.

It remains unclear if any of the original franchise players would return for the reunion (particularly given breakout star and current ‘Star Trek‘ lead Zachary Quinto‘s demanding schedule), but the most likely avenue would see ‘Heroes’ reemerge with new characters and stories, and occasional cameos from past stars.


Hope it's true though I doubt it would be as good as the first couple of seasons, especially with a new cast of characters

Marvel needs to pick this up and make a movie already

Yeah, I'd rather see a movie with the original cast that ties up all the series rather than a new season with new stories/characters etc

Looks like this is happening, we'll see how it turns out...

First rumored last April, NBC is planning to resurrect its superhero-themed series "Heroes" for a special 2015 miniseries event. Thirteen new episodes will be produced with original creator and executive producer Tim Kring at the helm, it was announced today by NBC Entertainment President Jennifer Salke.

“The enormous impact ‘Heroes’ had on the television landscape when it first launched in 2006 was eye-opening,” said NBC Entertainment President Jennifer Salke. “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 original series chronicled the life-changing stories of a series of unrelated ordinary people who discovered they had superhuman abilities. As the saga unfolded, they learned they were part of a grand plan that brought them together to change the world.

With the return of “Heroes Reborn,” NBC will launch a digital series prior to the 2015 premiere that will introduce the characters and new storylines. This leveraging of social media is a way for fans to re-engage with what was one for the true pioneers in multiplatform storytelling.

Plot details for the new episodes are being kept under wraps, but the 13 episodes are said to follow a new stand-alone story arc.
