Earlier this week 'Heroes' alum Ali Larter alum became the second original cast member to shoot down the possibility of appearing in NBC's 2015 revival 'Heroes Reborn,' but what of the franchise's arguably most enduring character, that of Zachary Quinto's villainous Sylar? Now, the 'Star Trek' star and 'American Horror Story' vet has officially weighed in on potentially joining NBC's 'Heroes Reborn.'
NBC's proposed 'Heroes' reboot 'Heroes Reborn' has been something of a mystery since its original 2014 Olympic announcement, thus far returning only original series star Jack Coleman to the cast. Prior series lead Milo Ventimiglia previously shot down questions of returning to the role of Peter Petrelli, and it now seems original series star Ali Larter has followed suit.
Last week saw NBC's forthcoming 'Heroes' return, 'Heroes Reborn,' dropping its first real bit of intel since the initial announcement, specifically that series veteran Jack Coleman would return for the new iteration. Now we've learned the NBC revival may end up without one of its most important characters, as Milo Ventimiglia claims he may not return to the role of Peter Petrelli.
The moment NBC announced that 'Heroes' would return in 2015 with 'Heroes Reborn,' we had to wonder how much of the original super-powered series would factor into the revival, and how much had simply been dusted off to counter the similarly-reborn '24: Live Another Day.' Now, the NBC superhero drama has confirmed its first bit of casting, returning Jack Coleman to the role of HRG, better known as Claire's father Noah Bennett.
Earlier today we saw NBC delivering the first full trailer for its upcoming 'Constantine' adaptation, but the network had plenty more to give in advance of the Upfront presentation tomorrow. Not only has NBC set the basic structure of its fall lineup, breaking up its Thursday comedy lineup and keeping 'Parks and Recreation' on the bench for the moment, but the network has also released full trailers for its other offerings, including Katherine Heigl CIA drama 'State of Affairs,' and 'HIMYM' alum Cristin Milioti's 'A to Z.'
NBC has yet to follow up on its surprise announcement that 'Heroes' would follow in the footsteps of '24: Live Another Day' with 2015 revival series 'Heroes Reborn,' but at last it seems we might have a bit of insight. The network will partner with creator Tim Kring for a prequel web series, 'Heroes Reborn: Digital Series,' easing us back into the 'Heroes' world in time for the proper return in 2015.
Those who tuned into NBC's live coverage of the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi tonight were greeted with a little something extra from the network: during a commercial break, NBC teased the return of 'Heroes,' the television series created by Tim Kring, which ended in 2010. The new standalone series is appropriately titled 'Heroes Reborn,' as teased when the word "Reborn" flashed under the classic logo during the special promo.
Forget 'The Wizard of Oz,' we're closer to the 'Wizard of Oy,' at this point. Following NBC's announcement to develop a 'Game of Thrones'-style take on the L. Frank Baum mythology titled 'Emerald City,' which itself followed CBS modern medical drama 'Dorothy,' The CW has thrown their hat onto the yellow brick road in developing a "what if" take on the classic tale, titled 'Dorothy Must Die.'
Whereas the rumors of NBC reviving 'Friends' proved to be nothing more than hearsay and a hoax, the latest possible revival is all-too-real. Sources say that the oft-debated superpowers drama 'Heroes' may receive an unexpected revival as MSN pushes toward original content through its XBox gaming system, but would the reunion manage to return the all-star cast? Get the details on a shocking 'Heroes' revival inside!
