News & Interviews for Heroes Reborn: Season 1
I can't explain NBC's decision to revive a drama that so recently died ignominiously. But I know that the two-hour premiere didn't lure me back in; just when I thought I was out, I was.
Often confusing, requires some Heroes expertise, but some striking special effects.
I'd recommend jumping on-board. We have more options in 2015. It's just as easy to jump back off.
Heroes Reborn reintroduces a world clogged with new characters and conspiracies to unravel, but it's so hell-bent on being convoluted that those mysteries quickly lose their appeal.
If you didn't watch Heroes, there's no point in trying this series. If you loved Heroes, this is a stinging disappointment. It is sad that NBC is repeating itself, and doing it so badly.
The three episodes that were provided for review keep the various plotlines moving efficiently. One gets the feeling that the lines will eventually converge, which is not always the case in these large-ensemble dramas.
It's still early - the characters are still developing, secrets are still being dug up, and powers are still getting.. actually... forget this.
The addition of topical vernacular like "truther" to a tired superhero narrative, does not a "rebirth" make.
it was hard to maintain interest in this juvenilia that should never have graduated from comic book concept to the small screen.
Fortunately, Heroes Reborn is one of the few revivals that has benefited from a much-needed hiatus and is giving viewers a story that's actually worth telling.
Finally, a reboot that works - Heroes Reborn resets its pieces onto the season one playing board with a new mystery, new characters, and new powers that all lead to some fantastically bizarre moments of television.
Audience Reviews for Heroes Reborn: Season 1
Aug 14, 2016A limited miniseries (and possible backdoor to a new series), Heroes Reborn is an action-packed sci-fi thriller. After Noah Bennet learns of a cover up for a terrorist attack that killed his daughter he goes searching for the truth, meanwhile a shadowy corporation tracks down and captures people with powers as part of a desperate plan to save humanity. Several original series characters make appearances, but for the most part the cast is all new (except for Jack Coleman). And the superpowers featured include a nice mixture of new abilities and old ones. Also, the writers do a good job with the serial storytelling (which is quite impressive given how integral time-travel is to the overall plot). Still, it doesn't quite feel as epic and compelling as the original series was. Yet despite its shortcomings, Heroes Reborn delivers a lot of intense drama and exciting action.Dann M Super Reviewer
Oct 07, 2020In the words of Billy butcher, this was fucking diabolical. Acting was terrible (even by some of the original cast), script was terrible, character relationships were shockingly poor. Video game sequences were fucking terrible.
Aug 26, 2020I'm sad that some of the original cast couldn't come back and those that did didn't have bigger parts. I did think it was a good show in its own right and thought it was unfair not to get a second season with so many questions up in the air!
Mar 16, 2020It was a really rocky start (I didn't realize there was a short web series to introduce the characters), but turned out good.
May 16, 2019Heroes Reborn tries to win back the crowd that it lost 5-6 years ago with a darker tone, changing of characterizations and having even the characters both from the original series and this "event miniseries" either die or be doomed to uncertain fates. Some of them don't even show up in the series proper! But whilst the performances are still good and there's a slightly increased amount of action sequences, Heroes Reborn suffers from excessive melodrama, uninteresting villains, bad special effects and poor timing. I know Tim Kring remains optimistic about this show but maybe NBC should've striked while the iron was hot and wrapped everything up with a one-hour TV movie when it was announced it wouldn't get picked up for a fifth season. Being released in 2015 where more mature adult-oriented superhero shows such as those set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe means that its flaws stick out more. And its not like the effects can be strictly blamed on a TV budget seeing how by the time this sequel series premiered we already had TV shows with high production values such as Game of Thrones and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Good effort overall but sadly, Heroes Reborn just isn't good. Writers' Strike or no Writers' Strike back in 2007, they probably should've stuck with the original plan of "American Horror Story: Superhero Edition"
Feb 05, 2018I can't believe it was canceled. Its as good as supergirl. I'm totally serious.
Nov 10, 2016Heroes Reborn Season 1 Still rolling with the typical Heroes storytelling style, Heroes Reborn season 1 is both a perfect redemption and a new low for the Heroes TV series.
Aug 20, 2016The Story is sometimes difficult to follow, it is not entirely clear what drives some of the characters. I think it would have been much better with fewer story twists and a clearer separation between the good and thebad guys.
Jun 29, 2016Love this show... When will we get the next volume?
Jun 04, 2016While being no match to season 1 of the original, Heroes reborn does manage to tell a decent story which wraps up neatly in the finale. Overall though you cant help but feel underwhelmed especially with some of the resolutions of the supporting characters.
