News of Heroes: Reborn hasn’t exactly set the internet on fire. I guess people are suspicious after the downward trajectory its predecessor took. The original series premiered to remarkable success in 2006; but the fans and accolades quickly evaporated over the show’s four-year run.
We know that creator Tim Kring is returning for the reboot (has he learned from his mistakes?); but what this new series will consist of is still a mystery. Is it a remake, a sequel, a prequel?
Yesterday, NBC announced that Jack Coleman will be returning in the new series, suggesting that Heroes: Reborn is at least set in the same universe. Coleman played Noah Bennet (AKA the man in horn-rimmed glasses), a non-powered man who tracked and investigated those with powers.
