Heroes returned to NBC this season with a revival called Heroes Reborn. Loyal fans of the series hoped for closure with the new episodes that the network calls a mini-series.
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.

I miss watching Heroes
Love, love love this show!!! Thank you for bringing it back even though it was short lived. I’m hoping for another season.
looks like reborn will be recancelled
Nice that you’re so negative. No sign of it even being shown in the UK. It doesn”t always follow things are cancelled. Everybody expected Agent Carter to not be renewed due to less than stellar ratings but it was.
Can you put spoilers in the title please?
I loved watching Heroes the first time around and was disappointed when it was canceled. When I found out about Heroes Reborn I was so happy it was coming back! I have watched every episode of both shows and will continue to as long as it is aired. Please keep Heroes Reborn!
I love the show I’m glad it’s back on the air I look forward to watching it every week let’s just keep it going so everybody that I know and my brother and I love watching it thank you.
This miniseries much more closely aligns with the first season of the show than what they did in later seasons. In the first season, which might be the best season of any TV show, ever, there were several heroes discovering their powers, various paths crossed and they all ended up on a mission to save the world. That’s sort of what they are going for here. Heroes, at its best, was a show that had mystery and questions and you were always thrown a surprise or two each episode. Unfortunately, people have gotten to the point now (10 years after… Read more »
im hopeful this series nwver gets cancellwe again!!! i love Hero’s. in all its incantations!!!
Naomi has a valid point, and I also think putting it on Thursday against Grey’s Anatomy was a real deal-breaker, that’s a tough show to go up against. I TVo Heroes and watch it an hour later.
I do like the new version. Of course I would love to see more of the original cast, but many of them are doing other things now. I think one of the problems of the old show and the new is that there so many characters, it is hard to keep track of who is doing what. I wish they would focus more on a central story line.
