Heroes To Be Revived By MSN?
Well, hasn't 2013 been an interesting year for genre TV so far? With some shows heading towards their 50th, others ending with finales that are guaranteed to keep discussion boards busy for some times, others that continue to grow in their mainstream appeal and some that even generate a Kickstarter campaign in order to get financing for a movie, Heroes might be doing one slightly better (or worse, depending on your stance) - it could be coming back as a series yet again.
It's been three years since NBC pulled the plug on the show and it's been revealed that MSN could bring back the series as part of their initiative of original programming in conjunction with X-Box entertainment studio. Of course if this does come to pass, don't expect the original cast to be reprising their roles anytime soon. Rumours are it will be an entirely new cast instead, though some old regulars could make brief appearances.
I have to admit, I'm a little divided on this to be honest. Heroes was one of those shows that started off brilliantly before going downhill and I'm not sure if it justifies being revived either. Besides, four seasons was enough for the show and perhaps MSN could try some original programming to launch themselves but maybe this could be a good thing as well if handled well. What does everyone else think?
