‘Heroes Reborn’ Won’t Return for Season 2, Was Apparently Still Airing in First Place
There’s no easy way to break this to you, so we’ll lay it straight: Heroes Reborn will not return for Season 2. In related, and equally breaking news, Heroes Reborn was still on the air. In 2016. No, really! Come, join us in our dumbstruck eulogy.
Its Heroes finale still bafflingly set to air next week [Ed. note: Are we 100% sure this series ever actually premiered?], NBC confirmed to reporters at the TCA press tour (via TVLine) that no plans for a second season have been made, a model somewhat inherent to the revival in the first place. Says network head Bob Greenblat:
As far as I know there are no more incarnations of Heroes coming … unless [series creator] Tim [Kring] woke up one day and said, ‘Oh, I have another chapter to tell.’ I think we’re coming to the end… of the world, maybe. Stay tuned.
Not that we ever necessarily clamored for a Heroes revival in the first place, nor has the series ever returned to the relevant heights of its first season, should we mourn Reborn? The series finale will apparently air on January 21, just as another teams of Heroes prepares to take flight.
