Heroes Reborn is a miniseries that acts as a continuation of the series Heroes
The Supernatural phenomenon begins again with a fresh crop of inspiring heroes who take on the ultimate struggle between those with extraordinary abilities and those with nefarious motives to hunt and harness their powers. Epic adventures await these newly empowered allies as they cross paths with some of the original characters, unlocking the mysterious fate of the universe and their place within it.
The events take place one year after a terrorist attack in Odessa, Texas. This attack destroyed the city and the government had blamed those with extraordinary abilities for it. The whole world thinks Claire was killed in the attack. The EVOs went into hiding or are escaping from those with bad intentions. Two villains, Luke and Joanne lost their child in the tragic event and are looking for revenge.
Noah Bennet survived the tragic event and has gone into hiding. But Noah is found by the conspiracy theorist Quentin Frady who tries to show Noah the truth behind the Odessa tragedy. While they’re in hiding, some of them are discovering their newfound skills.
Malina is a brave and courageous girl who was brought up overprotected, finds out she is destined for greatness. Erica is the head of the highly successful tech conglomerate called Renautas and she has her own dark goals. Tommy tries to live a normal life when he discovers that he has the ability to teleport. Meanwhile in Tokyo, Miko, a unique and quiet girl is looking for her missing father, who was instructed to trap Hiro inside a video game. A unique type of hero is emerging through Carlos, a former soldier. Noah and Quentin team up to find out what really happened at the Peace Summit.
New Heroes are emerging and some heroes of the past such as Hiro Nakamura, Matt Parkman, Mohinder Suresh, Angela Petrelli and Micah Sanders cross paths with them. And together they will save the world.
In addition to Heroes Reborn, NBC will launch a digital series prior to the 2015 premiere that will introduce the characters and new story lines. The web series will be produced by Retrofit, the organization that produced many of the original webisodes.
Dark Matters is the six episode prequel of Heroes Reborn, exclusively on the Heroes Reborn app.
Heroes Reborn: Dark Matters will bridge the gap between the original series and Heroes Reborn, acting as both a reintroduction to the universe and a stage setter.
The digital series opens five years after the public became aware of the existence of evolved humans - or "EVOs." Said public is not entirely supportive of these EVOs. In fact, few people fall into the middle ground.
“Anyone who watches Dark Matters will find the ton of clues, backstory and Easter eggs that we've layered in," said Heroes Reborn executive producer Tim Kring in a statement. "Watching it before seeing Heroes Reborn really completes the entire saga, and guarantees a deeper, more rewarding experience for the fans."

Heroes Reborn: Gemini and Heroes Reborn: Enigma designed by Phosphor, will be released September 2015. The two games act as a prequel to Heroes Reborn and share an overarching story by two writers on the show, overseen by Heroes creator Tim Kring. Key characters and plots will link the two games, so while you can play them separately, you'll enjoy a richer experience when played together.
Gemini will be available on consoles and PC and is a first-person action-adventure game where the player controls new character Cassandra, age 20, who uses localized time-travel powers and telekinesis to solve puzzles and defeat enemies.
Enigma is a first-person action-puzzle game for mobile/tablet built on the Unreal 4 engine. It follows Cassandra’s younger sister Dahlia, 14, who uses her powers to escape a secret government facility called The Quarry.
Comic Book Series
The comic "prelude" Heroes Vengeance is from Titan Books and will serve as an origin story for one of the new characters. The series will consist of five issues and will be written by Seamus Fahey and Zach Craley.
