Heroes is returning in 2015 with 13 new episodes in a completely new story arc

NBC will air a 13-episode Heroes miniseries entitled Heroes Reborn in 2015...

If you wished for a Heroes revival when you blew out the candles on your last birthday cake, then well done you, it's happening. NBC has announced thirteen brand new episodes of the Tim Kring-created superpowered series are due to air as an 'event miniseries' in 2015.

Kring is back in the producer's seat for revived series, Heroes Reborn, which is being sold as a standalone story arc in the pattern of Fox's soon-to-air 24: Live Another Day resurrection. A digital series will launch prior to the Heroes Reborn premiere to introduce the new plotlines and characters, we're told.

NBC Entertainment President Jenny Salke's peppy official statement looks forward to "all the new textures and layers Tim plans to add to his original concept" and "won't rule out the possibility of some of the show's original cast members popping back in." Er, hooray?

Heroes might be the worst managed, worst curated show I've ever seen.  A serialized story with characters that would completely change major personality traits every three episodes, with absolutely no plot explanation for any of it.

I can't imagine what it was like for the actor who played Nathan Petrelli -- he had to ping-pong between playing a power-crazed megalomaniac, a repentant altruist, and a befuddled nihilist so many times, it's amazing the man didn't wind up on anti-psychotics.

And that's not even including the way their superpowers would completely change based on the immediate needs of the plot.  Remember that major plot point from two episodes ago about the shapeshifter who can't morph his clothes so he always has to keep differently sized outfits around?  Bad news: the writers don't, so now his clothes just magically change along with him.  Don't think about it too long though, or you'll miss out on the other nine eight wild inconsistencies from within the last three weeks.

Heroes was just poorly written overall. This is one of those few TV series I just walked away from after watching two or three seasons (I no longer remember which) and never looked back.

The first season of Heroes was pretty good and showed a lot of promise.  In season two, they didnt just jump the shark, they jumped an orca.  Ive never seen a show go from good to horrible so fast.  Hopefully they've learned from that.

They should have just "dropped the mic" after the first season and walked away.

I hope they make Sylar insane one episode, misunderstood the next, a hero in a few and then  he turns into a shrub for the finale.  After the original run, I'm pretty sure the audience would just shrug and collectively sigh, "That sounds about right."

I hope that all happens in the same episode.

They should just go with the only saving grace the show had after the first season:

When Sylar survived I was pretty much done with Heroes.  Season 2 had some redeeming qualities, but they lost me for season 3 & 4

I've never seen a show turn on a dime like Heroes did after that first season.  The writer's strike certainly didn't help, but damn.

Hopefully they can learn from their mistakes, but I'm not going to hold my breath.

I like that it's a standalone series and limited episode count.  Hopefully the entire series will be plotted out episode by episode prior to shooting.  Theoretically this should make it much easier to be consistent, which for whatever reason seems to clearly be one of the most difficult things in an ongoing TV series.

And as much as I'm a sucker for cast continuity, in this case it would probably be best to start fresh with a new cast and characters to hopefully make us all forget about the horribleness of the last season.
