Sometimes people will not know about miniseries as they may not have received much attention at the time they first aired. However, one miniseries which many consider to be well worth watching is Heroes Reborn. Comprising thirteen episodes, this title served as an extension of the NBC series Heroes. Those who know or remember previous promos shown in the Super Bowls may remember that the 2015 one featured this show for sixteen seconds. For similar shows, check out Grimm and Fargo.
There is a recognisable theme seen with Heroes Reborn, as it features people who find out that they have extraordinary powers. There is a web series called Dark Matters, which came out beforehand and comprises five episodes. This series served the purpose of introducing the characters and storylines which would feature in Heroes Reborn.
As a general background, this show is set 12 months after a terrorist attack takes place in Odessa, Texas. There are vigilantes who are hunting down and killing the people who have special powers, as the government has blamed them for the incident. As a result, these people have been forced into hiding – and there are two killers in particular who are seeking revenge for the death of their son.
