Shocking just about everyone, the 2006-2010 TV series Heroes will return to NBC as an "event miniseries" in 2015. The network made the announcement with a 15-second teaser that played during its coverage of the Winter Olympics:
Original creator and executive producer Tim Kring is returning to oversee 13 episodes for a "stand-alone story arc," but all other details are "being kept under wraps," according to an NBC press release.
When it debuted in 2006, Heroes was an instant hit, and its first season is largely regarded as one of the strongest debuts in recent TV history.
Needless to say, people had a lot of feelings about the news that Heroes was returning.
1.A lot of people were genuinely excited.
2.Some were cautiously optimistic.
3.Some had very specific requirements for the miniseries.
4.Some were confused.
5.And some were pessimistic.
6.Mostly, though, people poked fun at the idea by imagining other #NBCReboots, which quickly began trending on Twitter.
