NBC’s upcoming event series Heroes Reborn is set to bring back many of the original cast members of Heroes, although there are several noticeable absentees from the revival.

So, spoilers…

“The story was really the thing that dictated who would come back,” said Kring. “The show was always designed to be very elastic in its premise. I always saw it as a show that could repopulate itself. I wanted to make it something that was easy for brand new viewers to watch. For them, caring about new characters is just as important as having former cast in the show. »

Mystery Solved: Why Original Heroes Stars Like Hayden and Milo Aren't in the Reboot

14 August 2015 11:15 AM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Heroes Reborn brings back a beloved NBC franchise on Sept. 24, with a cast that includes newbies and original stars alike. Of course, not everyone is coming back - notably, Hayden Panettiere, Zachary Quinto, Milo Ventimiglia, and Kristen Bell. For those absences, you may have wondered why and speculated as such: who thinks they're too big for Heroes? At Summer TCA, creator Tim Kring demystified why we're not seeing everyone. Kring admitted that it was mainly a factor of the actors being too busy. "Some of the people did not have the availability because they were involved with other things," he admitted, saying the choice was "out of our control," seeming to imply that no one was blacklisted. But the reason certain stars are returning, like Masi Oka and Jack Coleman, was also dependent on the story. "The story was the thing that dictated who would come back," Kring said, saying »

Heroes Reborn Creator Reveals Why We Won’t Be Seeing Claire Bennet On The Show

14 August 2015 11:11 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

When Heroes Reborn was first announced, we were told that the story would focus on an entirely new cast of characters. Of course, as the months went on we found out that just wasn’t to be the case, with the likes of Jack Coleman (Noah Bennet), Masi Oka (Hiro Nakumura) and Greg Grunberg (Matt Parkman) announced as being set to reprise their roles. One major character from the original Heroes run notable by her absence, however, was Claire Bennet – the cheerleader played by Hayden Panettiere that was so integral to the first season’s story.

While speaking to EW, the show’s creator Tim Kring revealed that there’s a very good reason why Claire is not returning: she’s pushing up daisies!

“In the real world of the story, [her character Claire Bennet] died a year prior to our story starting. That gets into some of the mythology that’s attached to the original show. »

Heroes Reborn Creator Reveals The Death Of A Major Original Character

14 August 2015 8:31 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Over the last few months, we've seen a whole host of familiar faces board NBC's Heroes Reborn revival. Jack Coleman ('Noah Bennet'), Masi Oka ('Hiro Nakumura') and Greg Grunberg ('Matt Parkman') are just a few of the names set to return this fall. Speaking at the TCA press tour (via EW), the show's creator Tim Kring explained what factors determined which characters would be back. "Some of the people, some of the actors, did not have the availability because they were involved in other things," Kring revealed. Despite this though, he claimed the decision to bring back certain alums was almost always story-driven. "The story was really the thing that dictated who would come back," he continued, adding that the audience "caring about new characters is just as important as having former cast in the show." Arguably, out of all the original cast not set to return, Hayden Panettiere's »

Tiff 2015’s tv-focused Primetime Programme lineup announced

14 August 2015 7:00 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The rise in critical acclaim for television shows over the years has been well-documented, with a corresponding rise in interest among viewers to discuss and analyse television the way films are at festivals. While festivals dedicated to television shows, such as Atx and PaleyFest, are on the rise, film festivals still outweigh them.

For its 2015 incarnation, however, the Toronto International Film Festival will be doing something unique, beginning a programme dedicated to television. Titled the Primetime Programme, the section of the festival will conduct screenings and Q&A sessions just like the films that play at Tiff, focusing on specific episodes of shows instead. The lineup for the inagural Primetime programme has now been announced, and can be seen below.

Casual Season 1, Episodes 1 and 2, created by Zander Lehmann and directed by Jason Reitman, making its World Premiere

Festival favourite Jason Reitman (Juno, Up in the Air) directs this wonderfully endearing »

Heroes Reborn” hasn’t even premiered yet, but the huge “Heroes” fanbase — and reporter types at the Television Critics’ Assn. press tour — are already asking if there could be more episodes after NBC’s 13-episode event series wraps this fall.

“We’ve only spoken about doing this,” creator Tim Kring said at the “Heroes Reborn” panel at TCA in on Friday in Beverly Hills.

“That being said, I’ve always felt that the brand was elastic enough and a broad enough premise,” he continued. “It’s a show about ordinary people with extraordinary powers. It’s an indeterminate [amount of] people around the world and then they have to save the world. I feel confident that we can find more story to tell with some returning characters and new ones.”

As for those returning characters, a reporter in the room asked Kring why not all the actors from the original hit series, »
