Heroes will be the next series to get a reboot. In fact, a new sequel series is already in development, as Variety reports. The news comes shortly after the total solar eclipse, one of the most iconic events of the original series.

The new TV show will be called Heroes. It will be set years after the events of the original series, when "new EVOs are awakened and discover powers that will change their lives." The reboot/sequel will see the return of some of the villains from the original series, but the new group of heroes will be made up of new faces. Tim Kring, the creator of the original series, is currently writing the series.

This will be the second spin-off for Heroes, following the 2015 limited series Heroes Reborn. The premise of Reborn was similar to that of this new sequel: a new group of EVOs who had to deal with their sudden special powers, although the show saw the return of several stars from the original series, with Noah Bennet (Jack Coleman ) at the head of the cast. It is not yet clear which characters will appear in the new sequel. It is also expected that the new series will be an ongoing series, rather than a limited series.

The original Heroes premiered in 2006 on NBC, featuring a group of individuals who realize they possess superhuman abilities that they use to prevent catastrophes. The cast included Milo Ventimiglia (Peter Petrelli), Hayden Panettiere (Claire Bennet), Masi Oka (Hiro Nakamura), Adrian Pasdar (Nathan Petrelli), and Greg Grunberg (Matt Parkman). The show lasted four seasons before ending in 2010.
