I believe that the original Heroes series had one of the greatest first seasons in TV History and one of the reasons it fell apart soon as season 2 aired was because of the writers strike that made the whole story became muddled and sort of rushed. Seasons 3&4 were lacklustre at best and it was no surprise that the axe soon.
Now with original creator Tim Kring having a second stab with the franchise with Heroes Reborn which is due to air on September 24 at 8pm, Kring has stunned fans by announcing that an original character from the show will be dead when it comes back on the screen!
It seems the “Save the cheerleader, save the world” did not quite pay off for poor Claire Bennett who was played by Hayden Panettiere as she seems to have finally met her maker when the new season airs!
“She died a year prior to our story starting. That sort of gets into the mythology that’s attached to the original show.” Kring announced!
Claire’s father Noah Bennet (Jack Coleman) is returning to the limited series through and its her death and his involvement that will tie in the old with the new!
Why they have done this is a mystery as it now ruins the original season, because we now watch that and think “Well she is going to die anyway!”….
Massive mistake or clever plotting?…we soon find out when Heroes Reborn starts its two hour premier on the NBC!
