The return of a series that has become cult

Titled Heroes: Eclipsedthis reboot once again written by Kring and takes place several years after the events of the original series, while new “evolved humans” discover that they have powers that will change their lives.

As familiar antagonists and new enemies once again attempt to eliminate these beings who represent the next stage of human evolution, this group of new heroes must do everything they can to save the world.

The original series Heroes was entitled to four seasons broadcast from 2006 to 2010 on the American channel NBC. As reported by our colleagues from Deadline, Heroes: Eclipsed is currently being pitched to several potential broadcasters in the United States, including NBC and streaming platforms.

A second reboot

The concept ofHeroes: Eclipsed is reminiscent of that of the miniseries Heroes Reborn, released in 2015 on NBC and also created by Kring. This took place five years after the end of Heroes and introduced a new group of people discovering extraordinary powers. But unlike Heroes Reborn which was a limited series, Eclipsed was designed as a series that could develop over several seasons.

Heroes Reborn was entitled to 13 episodes in 2015.


If Heroes Reborn received a mixed reception, the original series had a much greater impact. Starring Milo Ventimiglia (This Is Us), Greg Grunberg (A.k.a), Hayden Panettiere (Nashville) or Zachary Quinto (Star Trek), Heroes was quite successful, especially in its early days.

It was even nominated in the Best Drama Series category at the Emmy Awards for its first season. It was mainly high production costs and a drop in audiences that ultimately pushed NBC to cancel the series in 2010.
