Save the Cheerleader Save the World or Something Like That


 If you were near a television when the first season of Heroes came out, no doubt you remember this tag line. Watching the beautiful Hayden Panettiere, break her neck multiple times and still walk away without a scratch was entertaining for 4 seasons until the show was eventually cancelled. The original series chronicled the intertwined stories of unrelated ordinary people who discovered they had superhuman abilities and learned they were part of a grand plan that brought them together to change the world. NBC has decided to revive this iconic show as an event miniseries, much like Fox is reviving its hit drama 24. The 13-episode new standalone arc entitled Heroes: Reborn, will air in 2015. Heroes: Reborn will feature a new group of characters, though “we won’t rule out the possibility of some of the show’s original cast members popping back in,” NBC Entertainment president Jennifer Salke said. The characters and storylines from Heroes: Reborn will be introduced in a digital series prior to the launch of the TV miniseries.

Even though it was cancelled in May 2020, the show has quickly earned a cult status, with fans still passionate about it and rallying to bring it back even after NBC abandoned an idea of doing a 2-hour TV movie or 4-hour miniseries to wrap the show’s storyline. Heroes has been one of the most profitable titles for NBC’s sister studio, Universal TV, ranking as its biggest international and DVD seller. Maybe encouraged by the great reaction fans of 24 have had to the reboot of that cult series as an event mini, NBC opted to step in and take in the project as a miniseries.
