New Heroes series will not save the cheerleader

April 21st, 2014 by Marc Comments

Ever since it was announced that Heroes was coming back (here) for Heroes Reborn we’ve been wondering who would return, if anyone, from the original series… and now we may have a slightly better idea.

The main character of the original series was cheerleader Claire Bennet, played by the lovely Hayden Panettiere (above), but it seems she’s in the dark as much as the rest of us according to Cosmopolitan: “Well, it was a shock to me. In fact, I believe I became privy to that through my cousin. She sent me a text message and told me about it, and, I mean, we had nothing, nothing to do with it; it will definitely be interesting to see how they reinvent that.

I think it’s a whole new set of characters. Who knows? It’s a little bit of an interesting feeling because you go, ‘That was our show, our home, our family,’ something that we had a major part in creating as well, and, I mean, I hope that they don’t have somebody else playing our characters, that would be a little dagger in the heart. But, you never know. I wish them success in it, for sure.”

So, no save the cheerleader, save the world this time out?

Heroes Reborn will be a 13 episode series with an online prequel airing before the series hits tv screens later this year.

The thirteen new episodes are said to follow a stand-alone story arc with a prequel web series set to debut beforehand.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
