The second season of Heroes begins four months after the conclusion of Volume One. The events of Kirby Plaza have changed the lives of the Volume One survivors, and not necessarily for the better. Meanwhile, several new characters are introduced, and the origin of the Company begins to be revealed, as its founders are faced with a mysterious figure from the past determined to kill them off. Eventually, an even bigger threat occurs: a virus, threatening to kill 93% of the world's population.
Writers Strike complications

In addition to these three volumes, six episodes of a mini-series entitled Heroes: Origins were to air .
With talk of an impending strike, Origins was shelved and Volume Three: Exodus was canceled, with Villains replacing it as Volume Three. The strike commenced on November 5, 2007, and ended February 12, 2008.
