As NBC prepares to bring back HEROES with its HEROES REBORN series, fans are wondering whether any of the familiar faces of the show will be back. Hayden Panettiere has already ruled out returning as Claire Bennet, saying she has heard nothing about the new series. Whilst Panettiere is one of the more famous faces to break out of the show, it was Zachary Quinto who benefited most from the series. Speaking to IGN, Quinto, now best known for playing Spock in the new STAR TREK franchise, spoke about whether he’ll be returning as the villainous Sylar.
Quinto revealed, “I’ve been in touch with Tim and he told me they were doing this and we left the door open for me to be involved, the trouble is really my availability. I don’t know that it would really even be possible. And it’s a challenge for me because that experience and role and opportunity really changed my life completely and sent me on a path that I might not have otherwise have been on, but at the same time I’m very interested in forward momentum, I’m very interested in expanding and defying people’s expectations of me… I don’t know that going back to such a definitely iconic character would necessarily do that. So it’s a larger question that I haven’t had to answer because no one’s actually given me an offer. We’ll see. I’m glad they’re doing it and I know that whether or not I’m involved that the fans will enjoy it.”
Whilst Quinto seemingly hasn’t totally ruled out the idea of a return, we say you HEROES fans better not get your hopes up.
HEROES REBORN has been confirmed for a 13-episode run at some point in 2015.
