TV News: NBC Announce HEROES Sequel for 2015

HEROES was convoluted at best and continually made bad character and narrative choices. It paid too much lip-service to fans and was all but unwatchable by the fourth series. It was also a landmark televisual event that was fresh and exciting when it first aired in 2006, heralding the dawn of TV as the massive, movie-rivalling and money spinning industry it’s become today.

Whether you wanted it to or not, HEROES is set for a 2015 return with a 13 part miniseries REBORN, focusing on a self-contained story arc, which interestingly was the original intention for the show.

No story details have been released but creator Tim Kring will return to take up executive producer duties. There’ll also be a digital series to introduce the characters prior to REBORN airing.

It’s possible that the original cast might return, but the creators may stay clear of the mistakes of the original show and set a few wrongs right.

Here's a teaser...

Its problem was that it never really recovered from being hit by the Writer's Strike when series two was in production. The first seven or eight episodes of series three were spent on little other than undoing everything in the previous one, either depowering, killing off, or otherwise writing out everyone new introduced until they reached the point they could just pretend it didn't happen. Problem was, by this point the damage was done and everyone had gone off the show. Also, the fact they never had the balls to kill off Sylar even though they kept pretending they were going to got quite irritating.

I found it all pretty much unwatchable really. I sat through 16 episodes of the first season and just couldn't see what the fuss was about so baled out.

Unwatchable fourth series? I think that's a bit harsh. Season 3 was quite bad but it picked right up in season 4, I really enjoyed it.
