heroes-reborn-cancelledStatus: Cancelled

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.

    Please don’t cancel Heroes Reborn.I can’t believe no Heroes in Dec.2015,but in 2016.I went from watching Grey’s Anatomy to Heroes Reborn.I was so excited it came back on TV.I have the other Heroes Seasons as well.if it’s cancelled I will still be happy it came back?

    I want it to be continued. Heroes reborn is genius and isn’t being treated as such. It is my teen wolf while teen wolf is away. I am pumped. If it can’t stay on NBC sell it to Netflix where they are appreciating shows!

    Same!!! I love that show and I wasn’t a fan of the original. I first heard about this one before I even knew there was an original, and it’s my new favorite show. Pleeeease don’t cancel it!!!

  4. Louise

    Please don’t cancel this show. It’s got potentiel if you give it à chance.

    It is one of my favorite shows as well, but in order for our voices to be heard, we would have to act. In order to do so, a large amount of signatures for a petition would have to occur as well as a few “big name” people to want Heroes Reborn to stay on. Unfortunately, (at least for me) it’s hard to find a good show and all the good ones are cancelled or about to be.

    Do not cancel Heroes Reborn. It is just getting started. The who is the father of the twins arc cannot be left hanging. It was a great show before and now. Its ahead of its time. SyFy should pick it up if nbc is so shortsighted!

    I feel like that NBC is thinking about the what “normal” people want to see. But si-fi is the opposite of normal and that’s what I think is what TV needs these days, if you look at doctor who you will see in the first season of the new series with the 9th doctor, they did ok, they didn’t do fantastic nor did they rocket sky high like they thought was going to happen, but after a season or two they started getting up there plus they got in all different country’s in on it. Doctor who become world wide! I think that is what we need to think about in heroes. This is something that many people can love! Plus I think that they aren’t taking the fact that many just now heard of Heroes reborn that they went back to see the old series, I know one to many people who is doing that. Sooooo if you count all those people who are interested in heroes because you brought it back, and then count all the people that watch it now. You will probably get twice as much that you started with. So please do not make us go through this again and just put back on my favorite show!!!!!!

    I think hero reborn is very fun. The fail of it is only tell background story long time much more about 6 episode first foe someviewer who not see Heroes series before, So some viewer who saw this series before feel it not good and tell his fell to another. But after episode 7 I thinks it tell story fastly and exciting much up an up.

    I am very sad if it is no season 2. Because I certainly think the rating of Heroes Rebirn will up again. Because the episode 11-13 is exciting much. The viewer who saw it will tell to another. The NBC should not confer Heroes Reborn fail. Beacuse Hero’series is a more time more rate style.

    As someone who just recently began this Heroes Journey…. Tim Kring, you my good sir are AMAZING! I’d continue to find a way to keep it going! NBC is not the only way and it seems you still have many dedicated fans. I just finished the original series and am going to dig fit this Heroes Reborn! TO BE CONTINUED……..
