Word came earlier this year that NBC is set revive its "Heroes" franchise with the new mini-series "Heroes Reborn". Since its announcement, many have wondered how many of the original cast members will return.
Hayden Panettiere played cheerleader Claire Bennet on the series, the character appearing in more episodes than any other character on the show. Yet the actress remains just as in the dark as the rest of us regarding this reboot/follow-up.
Speaking with Cosmopolitan (via Cbm) recently, Panettiere indicated she's probably not going to be involved either way:
"Well, it was a shock to me. In fact, I believe I became privy to that through my cousin. She sent me a text message and told me about it, and, I mean, we had nothing, nothing to do with it; it will definitely be interesting to see how they reinvent that.
I think it's a whole new set of characters. »

Back in February, NBC announced that it will bring back "Heroes" for a new 13-episode mini-series called "Heroes: Reborn," which will air in 2015. The network said it would be interested in having some of the original cast make appearances, but it turns out that Hayden Panettiere has not been asked to return. "[The news of 'Heroes Reborn'] was a shock to me," she told Cosmopolitan. "In fact, I believe I became privy to that through my cousin. She sent me a text message and told me about it. We had nothing to do with it." Panettiere continued: "It will definitely be interesting to see how they reinvent [the show]. I think it's a whole new set of characters. It's a little bit of an interesting feeling because you go, 'That was our show, our home, our family,' something that we had a major part in creating as well, and I hope that they don't have somebody else playing our characters, »
When Heroes returns it seems there won't be any need to save the cheerleader this time around. Hayden Panettiere, who played principal character Claire Bennet in the original series from 2006 to 2010, reveals to Cosmopolitan that she has not been asked to reprise the role for Heroes: Reborn. "Well, it was a shock to me," the Nashville actress said of learning about the miniseries from her cousin. "I mean, we had nothing, nothing to do with it; it will definitely be interesting to see how they reinvent that." We do know that the new series will place the focus on a new set of characters, but NBC has not ruled out the possibility of old cast members returning too. One way or the other, Panettiere hopes they wont recast. "I think it's a whole new set of characters," she continued. "Who knows? It's a little bit of an interesting feeling »

There's been nothing else revealed about the material since that time, and many have been wondering which, if any, of the original cast members will be returning. Upon the initial announcement of the show, NBC Entertainment President Jennifer Salke said they "won’t rule out the possibility of some of the show’s original cast members popping back in," but now there is one that can potentially be stricken from the list - actress Hayden Panettiere, who played Claire Bennet.

(Cbr) NBC in February trumpeted a 2015 revival of "Heroes" as an “event miniseries,” the network teased the involvement of creator Tim Kring and the possible return of some of the original cast. The announcement came as a surprise not only to the sci-fi drama’s fans and detractors, but also at least one of its stars. “Well, it was a shock to me, and, in fact, I believe I became privy to that through my cousin,” Hayden Panettiere, who played cheerleader Claire Bennet for all four seasons of the series, tells Cosmopolitan. “She sent me a text message and told me about it, and, I mean, we had nothing, nothing to do with it; it will definitely be interesting to see how they reinvent that.” Planned as a 13-episode standalone story arc, details of "Heroes Reborn" are, in the network’s words, “shrouded in secrecy.” However, the presumption, by Panettiere and others, »

As most Heroes fans already know, NBC will be reviving the popular show in 2015 with a 13-episode miniseries event titled Heroes:Reborn. And while it remains to be seen who exactly will be in it, one person who apparently won't be appearing in the reboot is none other than Hayden Panettiere, aka cheerleader Claire Bennet.

Don't expect Hayden Panettiere to pop up in Heroes Reborn. She didn't even know it was happening...
One of the shining lights of the original Heroes TV series was Hayden Panettiere, who shot to fame of the back of her role as Claire Bennet in the show. However, in conversation with Cosmopolitan, a source we regularly cite at Den Of Geek, she's revealed that she has absolutely nothing to do with the upcoming revamp, Heroes Reborn.
The original plan with Heroes Reborn was to bring back some of the original cast members from Heroes.

She sent me a text message and told me about it".

Previously on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D… well, let’s just say trust is a little hard to come by these days. S.H.I.E.L.D. has fallen. The team itself remains wary of whom they can actually count on, thanks to the events of last week.

And just when we thought we had everyone figured out, Ward — Ward, of all people! — has gone to the dark side.
