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!
