Breaking news, “Heroes” fans! According to TVLine, MSN is actively in talks to revive the show as a new original series on Xbox! Details on what MSN/Xbox have planned are a bit muddled right now, but apparently the idea is to introduce new characters in the same universe, with appearances by the original castmembers.
Details remain sketchy, but sources confirm that MSN is interested in relaunching the once red-hot NBC Universal franchise with new stories and heroes, while mixing in cameos from the original series’ cast (schedules and interest permitting). The talks are said to be in the preliminary stages.
The last time “Heroes” was on the air was in 2010, so 3 years later, and we might finally get some new “Heroes” content! Granted, it might not be what we’ve wanted (a continuation of the show via Season 5), but I have to say, something is better than nothing.
And who knows, if the show does well on Xbox (assuming everything goes through), NBC might very well decide to revive “Heroes” on network TV.
Either way, this is the best news for “Heroes” fans in 3 years!
