Cautious optimism

So... wasn't expecting to hear that Heroes would be returning almost 5 years after getting the can. Frankly, I'm cautiously optimistic for the return, because frankly, the show has nowhere to go but up after the disastrous season 4. --Gibbeynator 19:56, 23 February 2014 (EST)

  • Fortunately having been in syndication and Netflix for so long it's given people who didn't originally watch it a chance to get exposed. I was just talking to someone who's only now completing the first season. Hopefully considering the ads this one will actually come to fruition vs the other rumors we've heard. If the miniseries does well there's a chance it could reboot the series. (Admin 00:54, 24 February 2014 (EST))
    • I have some high hopes. As a somewhat vocal and active fan in the community, I have no idea if my voice will be heard or not, but I have to assume it has a better chance of being heard than others. So I'm optimistic, and more than cautiously. :) -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 14:26, 24 February 2014 (EST)
    • Hey, my account still works! Another cautiously optimistic soul here. Would love it it they kept the continuity from Volume 5. I could by rationale for scrapping it and rebooting the continuity, but not sure how i would actualy feel about the new story-line. SacValleyDweller (talk) 00:03, 6 March 2014 (EST)
      • The diehard fan in me wants to see the story come to completion. But the realist and pragmatist in me wants to see a story that works, that connects with the audience, and that captures the spark and magic of the first season. I'm hoping for a complete overhaul, save for the basic concept that started the whole thing: ordinary people with extraordinary abilities. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 00:23, 6 March 2014 (EST)
        • I'm all for them getting rid of the existing continuity and starting fresh. But if they're going to pick up where they left off, I'd like for them to go back and finish the St. Joan storyline, since that was actually interesting.--Gibbeynator 22:04, 8 March 2014 (EST)

Make more visible?

I think the site should have an announcement banner or something to make this information more visible. Especially on the Main Page where the only thing different is in the little news box. -Lөvөl 14:14, 14 March 2014 (EDT)

  • Maybe a next on Heroes tab --Gabrielense 18:15, 14 March 2014 (EDT)
    • For the moment, that's only an announcement for a new but not yet filmed project from NBCUniversal, nothing more. If there is any more fresh news (script, actor, characters...), they should be tagged as spoiler, until the first series episode's airing date is officialy announced. So, at this very moment, I think we cannot modify anything else but the "News" section. --LIMAFOX76 12:10, 16 March 2014 (EDT)
      • I made a change to the front page so the HR stuff is more visible. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 00:26, 20 April 2014 (EDT)


Not sure what the wiki want to do with this, but Hayden Panettiere Not Asked Back For 'Heroes: Reborn'--SacValleyDweller (talk) 18:20, 17 April 2014 (EDT)

Terrible, terrible joke!

April Fools ... a bit late! (BOO!) -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 00:44, 20 April 2014 (EDT)

Super Bowl Commercial

The snowy location reminded me of Drucker. --HiroDynoSlayer (talk) 02/3/2015 23:16 (EST)

  • I'm betting that being a new series it'll be a new location (if it's part of the series at all and not just a cool background they picked for the promo), but it could be interesting continuity if it turns out to be the Alaskan facility. (Admin (talk) 12:12, 4 February 2015 (EST))

Episode 1.01 title

Hi, it seems that the first episode would be entitled "Awakening", according to the photos published on the official NBC website. When we click on the stills, we have "HEROES: REBORN -- "Awakening" Episode 101 -- Pictured: Zachary Levi as Luke Collins -- (Photo by: Christos Kalohoridis/NBC)" (for the first still of Zachary Levi). What do you think? --LIMAFOX76 (talk) 13:01, 14 May 2015 (EDT)

  • Most likely yes. Could also be the name of the volume. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 00:01, 15 May 2015 (EDT)

IMDb and other unconfirmed

-Lөvөl 11:58, 3 June 2015 (EDT)

  • Well this is interesting, especially seeing as it's come out of nowhere but is totally plausible. I'm guessing the "Yamagata Guard" is a guard stationed at Yamagato Industries, which brings Hiro to mind, and "Anne Monroe" shares Adam's surname, so maybe she's a daughter of his? I also wonder why whoever had access to this information knows the names and roles of minor characters but the not main characters... seems suspicious to me. -Kon (talk) 12:25, 3 June 2015 (EDT)
    • IMDb is not a reliable database until an episode is aired so, it's better to wait the episode airing or find any confirmed news elsewere (Entertainment Weekly, etc.) Cheers --LIMAFOX76 (talk) 12:31, 3 June 2015 (EDT)
      • Yup, that is why I put the list here instead of the in article. This way we can collect evidence without overloading the page with unconfirmed things from IMDb. Feel free to edit the list if you find anything. -Lөvөl 13:07, 3 June 2015 (EDT)

Here's another actor who is appearing in Heroes Reborn, according to a relatively small but seemingly reputable website. The description they give of the trailer they saw matches the description that IGN gave earlier this year, with some extra details. Should we add this new (old) name to the list as well? -Kon (talk) 15:56, 3 June 2015 (EDT)

  • Published news can go right on the page. I for some reason, thought that the article you posted was old, so went looking another source. -Lөvөl 20:58, 3 June 2015 (EDT)

Should this page now be moved to Spoiler:Heroes Reborn, with a new article written in its place? -Lөvөl 14:17, 29 September 2015 (EDT)

  • Yes. I have that on my list of things to do ... but if you'd like to do that, that'd be so awesome! -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 14:57, 29 September 2015 (EDT)

Spoilers from Heroes Reborn: The Official Magazine

Due to some differences in titles for both the eBook and the episodes, I was not sure exactly how to edit the pages, so I am bringing this to the Talk page for Heroes Reborn spoilers.

The magazine has an article titled "Story Tellers" containing interviews with some of the eBook authors (Bishop, Swierszynski, and Anderson/Wacks). The Swierszynski piece (which I haven't been able to find a title for anywhere) is titled Catch and Kill. However, the Anderson/Wacks eBook, titled Nobody in the places I have seen online, is titled Long Way From Home in the article. The online synopsis seems to be the similar to the one in the article (a prequel "about a "Temporary Assessment Camp' like an internment camp where supposedly innocuous Evos are held so that they can be studied to see if the prose any threat to society").

The magazine also has an article titled "Hero Worship" with titles for the first eleven episodes. Chapters One through Six are the same as what we have in the spoilers, but Seven is called "June 13th, Part 1" instead of "The Day" and Chapter Eight is called "June 13th, Part 2" instead of "As Time Goes By". Chapter Nine is titled "Sundae, Bloody Sundae", Chapter Ten is titled "11.53 to Odessa", and Chapter Eleven is titled "Send in the Clones...". I'm going to type up the portion of the article about the episodes, if for nothing else, to use a trivia later on if any titles, writers, directors, or plots change.

  • Thanks, Heroes360. Great info! (Good to see you back!) -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 18:21, 6 October 2015 (EDT)
    • In Issue #2 of Heroes Reborn: Event Series — The Official Magazine, there is an interview with Rya Kihlstedt (Erica Kravid). On page 52 of the magazine, the title of Episode 12 is mentioned: "Company Woman". Not much is discussed about the episode, as at the time of the interview Kihlstedt had not read the script, but according to Kihlstedt, "apparently it has huge back-story for Erica." --Heroes360 (talk) 16:58, 8 December 2015 (EST)
      • IMDb lists a young actress by the name of Caitlin Carver playing "Young Erica", so it looks like we really will be diving deep into Erica's past. Can't wait for that one! -Kon (talk) 17:28, 8 December 2015 (EST)

Talk Page Move

Can we move this talk page to the mainspace now? Or should we have a new talk page for non-spoiler content?--MiamiVolts (talk) 16:42, 28 October 2015 (EDT)

  • I'm asking because Talk:Heroes Reborn currently redirects to this page.--MiamiVolts (talk) 16:49, 28 October 2015 (EDT)
  • I think most of what is on here belongs to the spoiler page, a new discussion page should be created there. -Lөvөl 22:37, 28 October 2015 (EDT)
    • Thanks, I've added a new discussion page there.--MiamiVolts (talk) 03:03, 29 October 2015 (EDT)

Heroes Evolutions Sites

Are we intending to keep Heroes Evolutions Sites (ie. frozen as-is for now, or can we update them? I assume new content, if any, will go under the Heroes Universe umbrella. Many of them, such as, I have been checking out today, and I think have not been available (the Evolutions content) since 2014. currently redirects to the NBC Heroes Reborn website.--MiamiVolts (talk) 16:57, 28 October 2015 (EDT)

  • I don't think we are yet distinguishing between Heroes Evolutions and Heroes Universe, I do think we should. If you have new information go ahead and update it. For the websites that no longer exist we can change the links to go to -Lөvөl 22:37, 28 October 2015 (EDT)

New comic series announced in the latest magazine issue

Issue #2 of Heroes Reborn: Event Series — The Official Magazine has a section about the new comic series, titled Heroes: Godsend. This is a "five-issue limited series, published by Titan Comics, and will begin in March 2016." This series is "the origin of Farah, with hints of her time helping US forces in Afghanistan", but on the whole, the series is about Farah as "a young woman and was first discovering her powers in New York." Also, "a few interesting faces from the old Heroes seasons pop up."
