CULVER CITY, CA (June 16, 2017) – Crackle, Sony Pictures Television Networks’ free, ad-supported streaming network, announced that the critically acclaimed Universal Television sci-fi drama “Heroes”and the event series “Heroes Reborn” are headlining the platform’s Fandom lineup on Thursday, July 13. NBCUniversal’s Television and New Media Distribution Group and Crackle came to an agreement to make seasons one through four of the Emmy®-winning “Heroes” series (78 episodes), as well as all 13 episodes of “Heroes Reborn,” available on the streaming network. These two series combined provide for over 65 hours of binge-watching pleasure.
From Creator/Executive Producer Tim Kring and bolstered by an impressive ensemble cast that includes Milo Ventimiglia (“This Is Us”) and Hayden Panettiere (“Nashville”), “Heroes” uses an innovative comic book-style format, divided into “volumes,” to tell the thrilling story of a group of ordinary people whose lives are changed forever when a solar eclipse unlocks extraordinary abilities inside each of them. As their stories intertwine, they must work together to unlock the secrets of their powers while battling the sinister forces that seek to use them for their own nefarious purposes. “Heroes” also stars Zachary Quinto, Ali Larter, Adrian Pasdar, Masi Oka, Greg Grunberg, Jack Coleman and Sendhil Ramamurthy, with appearances by Kristen Bell, George Takei, Robert Knepper, Madeline Zima and Malcolm McDowell, among others.
“Heroes Reborn” is a special 13-episode event series starring Zachary Levi as the vengeful hero-hunter Luke Collins, with Coleman reprising his role as Noah Bennet. Taking place several years after the flagship series, “Heroes Reborn” finds a new generation of “evos” in a fight for their lives after being pegged as the perpetrators of a devastating terrorist attack in Odessa, Texas. Joining forces with past heroes (including Grunberg and Oka) they must race against the clock to unmask the real culprits and save the world from a cataclysmic reversal. The event series was also created and executive produced by Kring.
