HEROES Could Reboot In 5 Years?

Speaking at this weekend’s WonderCon, former Heroes co-executive producer, Bryan Fuller said that he’s heard nothing of a reboot, but says it could well happen a few years from now.

“I wouldn’t be surprised if they waited for a while and then they reinvented it entirely. There have been two regime changes at NBC since HEROES came out and neither of those had a vested interest in the show. I can’t imagine they would go back into the vault, but in five years, they could re-invent the premise.”

    I may someday go back and finish watching “Heroes” from where I left off, but any future “Heroes” for me would have to be much less the unrewarding mess that this version was.

    One thing I regret is that I watched “Heroes” before I watched Buffy or Veronica Mars and didn’t fully appreciate the contribution to seriable TV of some of the actors that I was seeing. Veronica, along with Buffy’s Oz and Invisible Girl are 3 that come to mind.

    To be brutally honest, I can’t see any market for a HEROES revival. I remember
    the show used to be hugely popular among friends and relatives of mine (many of whom wouldn’t normally watch Sci-fi) but when the second season started I kept hearing them say HEROES had gotten “boring” or “incomprehensible” and that’d they’d give up on it. Among TV critics, the show seems to be regarded as the archetypal “good show that went bad”. Stephen Tobolowsky (Bob Bishop) admitted in a later interview he didn’t even know if his character was meant to be good or evil, or what that character was trying to do, meaning the planning of the storyarcs in HEROES was seriously flawed.

      “he didn’t even know if his character was meant to be good or evil”

      In a show like Lost, playing that ambiguity can be a good thing for a character and actor. (Though even Michael Emerson always seemed personally convinced that Ben was fighting for some sense of ‘good’). But in a show like Heroes, which had totally gone off the rails by its latter seasons, it’s not an encouraging indication. The story arcs of Heroes were indeed badly flawed. I’m all for flexibility and steering the ship where it needs to go, but their overall structure was lacking.

      One of these days I’m going to re-watch some of that first season to remind myself of just how good the show was, because it’s quite easy to forget due to what came after.
