Cult TV show “Heroes” is returning to the small screen four years after it was canceled.

The show, about ordinary people who discover they have superpowers, launched the careers of stars including Hayden Panettiere and Zachary Quinto, and ran for four seasons before it was axed in 2010.

However, executives at America’s NBC network have now confirmed they will be bringing the show back to life next year.

The revamped series will be named Heroes Reborn and will feature an all new cast.

NBC’s Jennifer Salke says, “The enormous impact Heroes had on the television landscape when it first launched in 2006 was eye-opening. Shows with that kind of resonance don’t come around often and we thought it was time for another installment.”
