Heroes Reborn: NBC saves superhero TV series

The superhero TV series Heroes will return 5 years after being cancelled. NBC aired a teaser for Heroes Reborn during the closing of its Olympic coverage. The new series is a stand-alone arc so none of those unanswered cliffhangers if history repeats and ratings dive like Aquaman. There are no specifics regarding the storyline but it will presumably involve the aftermath of the heroes being outed by Claire. The superpowered cheerleader killed herself at a carnival then came back to life to demonstrate her regenerative powers to a news crew but that could easily be explained away given the context.

Heroes Reborn will be introduced as a digital series, followed by 13 episodes to air in 2015.
