Back in 2006, NBC starting airing an ambitious TV show called Heroes. In the beginning Heroes had all of the makings of a fantastic sci-fi program, as there were twists, conspiracies and high stakes drama as our titular heroes kept a delicate balance between using their powers for good (or evil), going public and keeping them in the dark. Sadly though, viewers felt that the second season was too slow and the third and fourth seasons were criticized heavily. Then, NBC canned it.
That was five years ago and in September, Heroes Reborn will be a proper, 13-episode reboot of the series, following on from Claire Bennet’s decision to go public about her abilities. Things took a dramatic turn after that, though, and apparently people weren’t too keen on the idea that superpowered (and sometimes unstable) people were roaming their streets.
We’ll get to explore these events for ourselves in two Heroes Reborn video game tie-ins. The two games will serve as prequels to the TV show and they are scheduled for release this year.
