Heroes Reborn bags two more cast members in Danika Yarosh and Robbie Kay
I recently went back and re-watched the first season of Heroes and, while it didn’t hold up quite as well as I remember, I still found it to be a decently entertaining show; which of course begs the question…what the heck happened to it? During the first season Heroes received numerous nominations including ones for best drama at both the Golden Globes and Emmy Awards, but it seemed like it didn’t take people long to switch from loving it to hating it. The show meandered on for three additional seasons before finally being put out of its misery but, just like many of its characters, the show has refused to stay dead and Heroes Reborn is underway whether we want it or not.
Recently both Danika Yarosh (Shameless) and Robbie Kay (Once Upon a Time) have signed on to the show, joining the previously announced Zachary Levi and Jack Coleman. Coleman is thus far the only member of the original cast to reprise his role in this new series but I’m sure he won’t be the only one. As was the case with Zachary Levi, we have no information on who these two new additions will be portraying.
The official description:
The saga behind the 2006 breakout series Heroes will continue as creator Tim Kring returns to the fold and develops new layers to his original superhero concept. This highly anticipated 13-episode miniseries will reconnect with the basic elements of the show’s first season where ordinary people were waking up to the fact that they had extraordinary abilities. This series will be preceded by a new digital series that will introduce audiences to the new characters and storylines that will take the Heroes phenomenon to new places.
Heroes Reborn will consist of thirteen episodes and is expected to debut later this year. Whether it will be any good or not remains to be seen, but believe it or not I am rooting for them. Heroes was fun once, it would be nice to see it return to that.
Which characters from the original Heroes series would you like to see return?
