Some members of the original cast returned, but not everyone. Claire Bennet was killed in the opening moments of the new show, and the series introduced new EVO’s.
On this week’s episode, Masi Oka returned to the Heroes universe as Hiro, and he will appear on two more episodes of the series. Noah Bennett will look to Hiro for help with the current situation.
Masi Oka has high hopes for Heroes Reborn, but those high hopes are not being matched with the ratings. The series has dipped more each week.
Masi Oka is still hopeful, and he spoke about the series in an interview with Blastr.
“We are coming in as guest stars, and it’s a little bit weird. I remember going back on set, and it’s our show, but at the same time it’s not our show. My mentality coming into it was my opportunity to give back and to pass a torch. We were very fortunate to have a success with the cultural phenomenon that Heroes was. We love the world, so we want it to succeed. I wanted to do whatever part I could to pass the baton so the next generation of Heroes can succeed. Hopefully it will go on with Heroes Reborn or even Heroes Resurrected years down the line.”
Masi Oka also revealed why he did not play a larger role on the revival. He still a regular cast member on CBS series Hawaii Five-0, and he could not find the time to fit both shows into his schedule, but he is still supportive of Heroes because the series helped launch his career.
