Tim Kring Talks Heroes: Reborn

Heroes Tim Kring, creator of the series Heroes, talked with Entertainment Weekly about the upcoming Heroes: Reborn mini-series. The series will be post season 4 and will pick up on a few threads that where left out. It contains some of what was planned for season 5, but in the five years since cancellation Kring had new ideas to reboot the series and when NBC approached him about bringing it back, he combined some of those ideas.

Though the series will mainly focus on new characters, The man with the horn-rimmed glasses, Jack Coleman (Noah Bennet) will be back. Kring saw him as the spine of the series and felt he was the way to meet new characters. There will be a few other returning characters, but don't expect to see Ali Larter (Niki and Barbara Sanders) or Zachary Quinto (Sylar) as both have said their schedules are just too full. The main reason for the returning characters is to connect it to the previous series and establish a sense of continuity.

Kring says the biggest advantage this time is he knows exactly how long this will go and can tell a complete story without worrying about the next season. "We have a set number of episodes and whether it ever returns after that is unknown and there's freedom in that."
