Heroes will go back to its roots in its midseason return, trying to win new viewers and recapture those turned off by too many characters and plotlines.

"This volume starts us pretty much from scratch," creator Tim Kring said in a statement Thursday. "There is almost nothing that the audience needs to know from the previous volume in order to follow the storyline."

The reboot may be arriving just in time to save the show, which has faltered in ratings and irritated many fans since it's successful debut season.

Angela Bromstad, NBC's president of primetime entertainment, said Thursday that the show was "very secure" — but she didn't go so far as to announce its renewal, as she did for The Office, 30 Rock, and The Biggest Loser.

Bromstad said she's talked with Kring about whether the show has strayed too far from it's original focus: ordinary people dealing with extraordinary powers.

"They may have taken on too much in terms of characters and multiple storylines," she said.

The fourth volume of the show, airing Feb. 2 and entitled "Fugitives," features the heroes trying to lead normal lives — until Claire (Hayden Panettiere) discovers a plot to hunt down and capture those with powers, orchestated by Nathan (Adrian Pasdar).

Damages actor Zeljko Ivanek will play a character called The Hunter.

Finally, in a long-awaited development, Sylar (Zachary Quinto) will begin the search for his real parents.

Sounds good. I'm looking forward to it! Though I didn't find Vol. 3 that bad, it was a vast improvement over Vol. 2!

Re: MidSeason 3 reboot is about to start from scratch - finally!

true, sounds good. Like the idea of fugitives, from what heroes saved the world in season 1.

Re: MidSeason 3 reboot is about to start from scratch - finally!

naah...those damn americans. they don't know what is good. whining about good things. ratings my ass. i'm pretty sure that the majority of the show is watched worldwide. those puny whatever number of americans (2-10 million) watching it can't beat the rest of the world. and screw the commercial money and stuff. its getting rather irritating that the world is being run more and more every day by day by american huge companies.

oh hell yeah, i'll give that a big second

If you don't believe drugs have done good things for us, then go home and burn all your records, all your tapes, and all your CDs because every one of those artists who have made brilliant music and enhanced your lives? RrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrEAL fucking high on drugs. The Beatles were so fucking high they let Ringo sing a few songs.

Well actually it's not American big companies - it's just global multinational companies. Nowadays companies don't care about country specific laws. If they want to do something which is prohibited by law in one country they blackmail the current country or move to another country.

So don't blame America - blame ... well the economy (not capitalism!)

Re: MidSeason 3 reboot is about to start from scratch - finally!

Hey guys - try to stay on topic. I know I started it but discussing Cylon issues on a Heroes forum is quite pointless smile

What actually happened with that WiFi girl. I know there was a clue in the online comic, but I don't remember what it was. I want her back! big_smile

Re: MidSeason 3 reboot is about to start from scratch - finally!

didn't she died in outer space or something in the comics?

Re: MidSeason 3 reboot is about to start from scratch - finally!

well if heroes were actually interesting enough to warrant 'staying on topic' then this kind of thing wouldn't happen...

my vote... 'Six'

and on topic: too little, too late, sorry...

i'm going to eat your brains and gain your memories...

Re: MidSeason 3 reboot is about to start from scratch - finally!

since waiting for something makes some people nervous, thus it is understood why the change of topic.

Heroes pulled itself back with the first half of season 3, though if it had gone the same way as season 2 then I think I might of given it up... I think, maybe, I might of :s

Re: MidSeason 3 reboot is about to start from scratch - finally!

Just seen s03e14 and my thoughts... Well that sucked!

...where did I put that rat's ass I could give?

Daemons are benevolent or benign nature spirits, beings of the same nature as both mortals and gods, similar to ghosts, chthonic heroes, spirit guides, forces of nature or the gods themselves.

Re: MidSeason 3 reboot is about to start from scratch - finally!
