‘Heroes’ to Return For Season 5 on Xbox?

Heroes burst into our consciousness like a flash of lightning, spitting out catchphrases and tie-in products overnight as it rode a wave of critical praise and fan support to high ratings and higher expectations in its first season. Sadly, all of that washed away as the show crashed to earth shortly thereafter, leaving the airwaves following the season 4 finale – but now, Heroes may be returning in a slightly unconventional way, with MSN looking at the show as a possible part of their push to deliver original programming via the Xbox game console.

According to TV Line, details are “sketchy” but if made official, Heroes would feature “new stories and heroes, while mixing in cameos from the original series’ cast.”

That original cast has — for the most part — stayed active in the 3 years since Heroes left the air — particularly Zachary Quinto (American Horror Story, Star Trek Into Darkness) and Hayden Panettiere (Nashville) – prompting questions about how willing they would be to revisit their old stomping grounds.

Though rumors had sparked following the show’s cancellation about a TV movie to tie up loose ends, little has been said of late about going back to the world that Tim Kring created and Bryan Fuller helped build. Of course, the question on everyone’s mind is: what would that world look like if this miraculously comes to pass?

It’s not known whether Kring or Fuller would come back to a role with the show either, since Kring is presently working on Touch for Fox and Fuller is running NBC’s Hannibal.

Now, while many hardcore fans might bristle at the notion of a Heroes continuation without many of the key players from its initial run – one has to wonder if that might be for the best.

Sure, there is a pang of nostalgia that comes with hearing this news, but it’s also important to remember the whole picture here, and that includes the behind the scenes power struggles and what was perceived to be a creative collapse that soured critics and turned fans apathetic. Hell, Kring even apologized to fans for the show’s strike-shortened second season.

Despite its many failings, though, Heroes was spectacular when everything was fresh and new and the show doubtlessly accomplished a feat long thought impossible – they made a TV show that captured the splendor of superheroes and comic books without the weight of precious legacies and an adherence to canon. That’s a mechanical rabbit that networks are still chasing around the track, but this Heroes (assuming it actually happens) could re-find that magic – if they try to be fresh and new again by focusing on the deeper Heroes mythology and new characters without a care for the show’s own precious legacy or an adherence to its thorny canon.

  1. Is Tim kring going to make a season 5

    • I dont care about anything in the moment… I am happy that I just found 1 month free xbox live code from:
      http://www.xbpointcodes.com
      and I dont care about anything else, i just play all day long…

  2. Hope it comes back. Just finished watching all 4 seasons on Netflix.

  3. I think ist not god for the series that thay will puts in new characters.

  4. YESSS PLEASE MAKE ANOTHER SEASON , THEY WAY SEASON 4 ENDED IT HAS TO BE SEASON 5

    • Season 3 had an arc end with Sylar’s evil father being told that the key to his survival was the ability of a regenerating cheerleader, while Season 4 ended with said cheerleader outing herself on national TV. With Sylar’s redemption and Claire’s big reveal, the re emergence of Samson Grey as a serial killer in S5, Parkman’s hate and mistrust of the redeemed Sylar, and Peter dealing with the fact that his brother’s memories are now within the redeemed former killer. An epic story was set up, but I am not sure if the writers even realized it. Sylar would want to extend the hand of redemption, it would be hypocritical not to. Blood Father-family vs Adopted (stolen?) family, with Nathans memories involved. Meanwhile, reinforcing Samson Grey with the 2 abilities scripted for the latter half of S2 (cancelled), would make him dangerous – originally Sylar was slated for chameleon power instead of shapeshifting, and impenetrable skin instead of regeneration. Both would make Samson dangerous without healing his cancer.

  5. how season 4 end they could go all out and if the same cast still playing there part i will be watching it

  6. If they would go for season 5 il totaly watch it

  7. Just finished watching season 1-4 it was Awesome, got to make season 5

  8. I really hope this show comes back i just finished watching it on Netflix NBC needs to get with the program….

  9. PLEASE bring heroes back that was SUCH an AWESOME show and I miss it SOOOOOO much!!!!

  10. I’m so mad that heroes was left with that giant cliffhanger so wrong it started the beginning of a new chapter then just stopped just like that I think u should for sure bring it back with Sylar and Claire and Peter and Noah and new people just bring it back no show should be left with a cliff hanger if u won’t bring it back at least make a movie to tie up loose ends bring it back soon so people won’t look too different
    Thank you

    • Thank you!!!

  11. i LOVE heroes, the writers strike, which effectively shortened the second season in half, basically wrecked the series.
    I will always be a fan of it, but the neutrals and fence sitters could of been swayed if there was a full 2nd season.
    they need to bring it back for a 5th season, or at least a final movie.
    Id like to see peter regain his original power, hiro, sylar, Claire and noah should all return, aswell as ando, matt, mohinder, and tracy.
    I have always wanted claude to return aswell if only for a couple of cameos.
    its unlikely that it will be revived in anything but a comic book unfortunately, I soooooo hope im wrong!

    • Season 1 was amazing, Season 2 started off kind of rocky and then the strike made it short. Season 3 pretended Season 2 never happened and the show just went downhill. You could tell they had no idea what they were doing with Season 4. Not really sure how a Season 5 could work unless they reboot it from the end of Season 1 with different characters.

  12. Loved it don’t under stand y they stopped it. Great story line actor’s were great. The drama had a lot of power to it..

  13. This show was great but after first season could have been better. first season seemed so interesting with peter being found out to be a revelation the ultimate power if he could control it. Second season had a strike so was forgiven, third season had a mixture of great and terrible moments. Sylar turning out to be able to gain any power like peter could was kinda lame. If they wanted to keep the series going they should have let more important characters die off. I was looking forward to a finale of peter getting his old power back and having a final showdown with sylar :(

  14. There is a way to wrap up season 4 and still go forward and satisfy both camps here. A teenage Matt Parkman jr. is now experiencing greater development of his powers that he has had since he was a baby. He has a huge problem though. He randomly disappears into other years but only stays gone an hour at a time. He doesn’t yet know why this is happening, however when he does return to the past when he was a baby, he mets with Michah and Nathan Patrelli’s twin sons and Mollie. You can keep the flavor from the previous series by keeping Angela Petrelli in her usual manipulative role as she tries to maneuver her now teenage grandsons. Camoes from Hiro will help young Matt Parkman to learn how to control his time travel abilities. Also how about a zombie revenge season from long dead cheerleader “Jackie” whom sylar killed ??

  15. I just finished watching heroes got really addicted until I reached the end of season 4 and found out that was gonna be the last season for now? I think it is beast Series and should definetly make a new season please say they do and with all the same characters they can put a few new ones in but mostly keep the main ones like peter, sylar,claire, hiro, and the rest I would love a season 5 please say they make one

  16. We need heroes
