Description: From Creator/Executive Producer Tim Kring, who imagined NBC’s original critically acclaimed 2006 “Heroes” series, comes “Heroes Reborn,” an epic 13-episode event series that chronicles the lives of ordinary people who discover they possess extraordinary abilities.
A year ago, a terrorist attack in Odessa, Texas left the city decimated. Blamed for the tragic event, those with extraordinary abilities are in hiding or on the run from those with nefarious motives. NBC.com
Comments: A six episode web-series titled Dark Matters preceded the show to introduce the characters. You can watch that online at this link.
Why Was It Cancelled? This show bowed to moderate ratings back in Fall and saw it numbers continue to drop over the weeks and months that followed. Despite decent delayed viewing gains and claims by the network that the overnights don’t matter, those early results appeared to doom the show. NBC tried to claim that it was always intended as a “limited run” series, but creator Tim Kring had previously said that he had ideas for additional seasons and if the numbers had been high enough this one would have been back.
