FOX's upcoming 'event series' revival of "24" was expected to lead to various other networks following suit. Today, NBC has done just that.
"Heroes" creator and executive producer Tim Kring is planning "Heroes: Reborn," a thirteen-episode event miniseries in 2015 that aims to potentially revive the franchise.
The series would track a new standalone arc, but character and story details are being kept under wraps for now. It is expected that at least some of the show's original cast members will return.
The event series will also be preceded by a new digital series introducing new characters and storylines ahead of the show launch.
