HOLYLWOOD, CA (Hollywood Daily Star) 2015/9/23 – “I always approached it as a show about characters,” says Heroes Reborn EP Tim Kring. “It was a show that was called Heroes and not Superpowers or Powers. So it was always meant to be about the characters themselves. And by going back to some of those original basic base note ideas of what the show was originally, it almost doesn’t matter what’s happened in the world around us. We’re telling that story that I think continues to be something that’s fascinating of people dealing with almost primal questions of what’s happening to me?”
