Five years after we said goodbye Heroes, they are Reborn tonight at 8p on NBC for a 13 hour event. Before I tell you about what you can expect from Heroes Reborn, here are 5 things you should know.
1. You did not have to watch the original series to appreciate the reboot. Noah Bennet (Jack Coleman) will be filling in the missing details for the newbies and the oldies according to the show’s creator Tim Kring.
2. The show picks up in real time, so five years and half years after the first one ended.
3. Only handful of the Heroes from the first series will appear in this one, they are Bennet, Hiro (Masi Oka), Matt Parkman (Greg Grunberg), Mrs. Patrelli (Cristine Rose), The Haitian (Jimmy Jean-Louis) and Mohinder Suresh (Sendhil Ramamurthy).
4. Robbie Kay, who stars in Heroes Reborn was only 11 years old when Heroes debuted, so he was too young watch it.
5. Heroes Reborn is 13 hours and out. If it were to get picked up for another season, there would be a new storyline with new Evos/Heroes.
Now that you know that, here is what is happening on Heroes Reborn. Since we left Odessa, Tx. Heroes, who are now called Evos, are living out in public. Not everyone is happy about that, and some people want them stopped. On June 13, 2014, there was a huge summit in Odessa to unite the Evos and Ordinaries. During the rally, there is an explosion and many many people on both sides died. After that day, people are once again weary of the Evos and they are forced into hiding.
Fast forward to today, Bennett is a used car salesman who is going to get married. He doesn’t remember what happened on June 13th, but he does know his daughter Claire died on that day. His life is about to change when Quentin Frady (Henry Zebrowski), who lost his sister on that day, reminds him who he used to be. Something big is happening and we need HRG to help stop it.
Tonight, we will meet people with several different powers and they will all come in useful to stop what is about to happen. If saving the world wasn’t difficult enough for them, then having vigilantes like Luke (Zachary Levi) and Joanne (Judith Shekoni), who want them all dead, on their tails won’t make it any easier.
Will they be able to save the world? We will have to keep tuning in for the next 11 weeks to find.
If you are a fan of Heroes, like me, then you are going to love Heroes Reborn because it has the same feel. If you’ve never seen Heroes, then you can love this thrilling Sci-fi, action adventure that combines people powers with trying to prevent the apocalypse.
NBC is bringing back Heroes sometime this year and little by little they have been saying which of the original cast members will be back to reprise their roles for Heroes: Reborn. Noah Bennett (Jack Coleman) and his glasses will be back and today NBC announced that Hiro (Masi Oka) is also reborn.
I can’t begin to tell you how thrilled I am about this news because Hiro is my favorite. The only thing that would make it more perfect is if Jayma Mays can also be resurrected for him. After all it is called Heroes: Reborn, and dead people can be reborn, right?
One of the most shocking moments on television this season is when Zachary Quinto’s character on The Slap, slaps a kid, who isn’t his own, hard across the face. You can only assume that people will stop him on the street to talk about it and you are right because they do. Then you have to wonder, will they think of him as the good guy Spock from Star Wars or the bad guy Sylar from Heroes. The answer might surprise you.
Yesterday, when Conan O’Brien asked him about it, Quinto had this to say, “The biggest reaction, hands down, that I get is, ‘I would’ve slapped him twice as hard.'” Then he added, “Which I find really really disturbing and amazing.” Other people have told him, “I wish I was there. Like, I would’ve really gotten him. Like, I really would’ve clocked him. That must’ve been great.” All he can do is listen to them and wonder how he can get away from them as fast as possible.
Now, we know how fans reacted to The Slap, Quinto also talked about what made filming that scene easier with Dylan Schombing. Thankfully for Zachary, the kid knew from Star Trek and that brought an ease to filming.
So back to The Slap, what would you say to Zachary Quinto if you saw him in the street about it?
When it comes to the drama, to see what happens next, you will just have to tune into NBC tomorrow at 10p to find out.
Hayden Panettiere and Wladimir Klitschko welcomed a daughter on Tuesday. Even though it looked like she was having a big baby, Kaya Klitschko came into the world weighing in at 7 lbs., 14 oz., and measuring 20 inches according to People. No word what her special ability is, but with her dad being so tall and her mom the complete opposite, it will definitely be interesting to see how their kid gets.
Hayden Panettiere and on again, off again fiance’ Wladimir Klitschko are expecting their first child together according to Us Weekly. No word how far along she is, or if Nashville will write her pregnancy into the show. Which I assume they will and that will make the nighttime soap opera so much more interesting. Because it will be like who’s the daddy?, is it her looks to be ex-boyfriend, Avery or Jeff Fordham, the man she had revenge sex with. I know I want to tune in, don’t you?
BTW I chose this picture to accompany the story because I just imagined it was the Juliette Barnes telling us how big she is going to get carrying her much much much taller boyfriend’s baby.
Before Hayden Panettiere could buy whatever she wanted on Nashville, she was just a little girl buying an ice cream cone on Unhappily Ever After. How absolutely awwwdorable was the 7 year old in that 1997 episode?
Even though Hiro has moved to Hawaii (Five-0) and the Cheerleader is now residing in Nashville, NBC is still bringing back the fan favorite, Heroes, for a 13 episode miniseries in 2015. Tim Kring, who fathered the show, is back for Heroes Reborn and the digital series that will lead up to its birth.
At this point that is all we know because they plan on keeping as much of it a secret as possible, including which members of the original series will be back for the rebooted one.
As a huge fan of Heroes, I can’t wait until 2015. I just hope the miniseries is as good as the show’s first season.
Hayden Panettiere Tweeted this picture of her Halloween costume and all I could notice was that her cleavage overflowing from her top. When did the Nashville star get those pumpkins because I don’t remember them being that voluptuous.
Greg Grunberg Tweeted this photo of him in a sweet embrace with Blake Shelton and I have to wonder if they have something to tell us? Probably not because both of them are happily married, well depends who you read. Anyways, I am sure it is just that Blake is Greg’s voice and Greg is Blake’s hero!
No matter what is happening in the photo, it was too cute not to share!
