Heroes Season 3 premieres on NBC next Monday, September 22nd, but you can watch a preview of it right now, right here.

NBC has put online 5 minutes of scenes from the season premiere online. I actually was lucky enough to watch the entire episode at Comic-Con a couple of months ago, and barring one minor nitpick I had, I thought it was VERY good.

Many people thought that season 2 was pretty weak compared to the kick-butt initial season of Heroes. The good news is that the producers really seem to listen to the fans of this series and take the complaints to heart.

I have a feeling that this season may be back up to the standards set when the series debuted, but hey, judge for yourself from this little taste:

And here’s a bonus video that NBC just released titled “Who Shot Nathan?” (BTW, I know who shot him, but I won’t spoil it for you) :-P

So what do you think? Are you looking forward to season 3 of Heroes?
