NBC is resurrecting Heroes as an event miniseries, the network announced Saturday.
Similar to Fox's 24 reboot, Live Another Day, the planned miniseries Heroes Reborn will consist of a 13-episode stand-alone story arc. The episodes will air in 2015, and NBC will launch a digital series ahead of the premiere to introduce new characters and storylines.
