NBC aired a teaser for “Heroes Reborn,” a new 13-episode miniseries the Peacock network plans to debut in 2015, during Saturday’s coverage of the Winter Olympics.
According to TVLine, the series will be preceded by a web series which will introduce new characters and story lines.
“The enormous impact Heroes had on the television landscape when it first launched in 2006 was eye-opening,” NBC Entertainment President Jennifer Salke said, according to TVLine. “Shows with that kind of resonance don’t come around often and we thought it was time for another installment.

“We’re thrilled that visionary creator Tim Kring was as excited about jumping back into this show as we were and we look forward to all the new textures and layers Tim plans to add to his original concept,” Salke continued. “Until we get closer to air in 2015, the show will be appropriately shrouded in secrecy, but we won’t rule out the possibility of some of the show’s original cast members popping back in.”
