HEROES REBORN: 13 Things to Know about the NBC Series’ New Chapter

Heroes Reborn is the next chapter in the story of people with extraordinary powers, featured in the NBC series Heroes (2006-2010). The show is getting new life with a 13-episode series this fall on the network. The show takes place five years after the end of Season 4, after Claire Bennett (Hayden Panettiere) announced the existence of humans with superpowers to the world.

The heroes are now called “Evos” or evolved humans. Some as-yet-unnamed tragedy has occurred and the Evos are now forced to register with the government and some of them are disappearing. HRG, or Horn Rimmed Glasses (Jack Coleman) is trying to live a normal life in the suburbs, but a conspiracy theorist named Quentin Frady (Henry Zebrowski) pulls him back into the fray. He seems to be missing memories as well.
