Despite reception of the superhero show Heroes having a steady decline following its first season all the way to its end, rumors are circulating that Microsoft may bring the show back in a new iteration as an Xbox exclusive series. This new vision of Heroes will feature new characters with the original cast being confined to cameos.
While it’s been no secret that Microsoft has been interested in creating Xbox-specific programming, one has to wonder if pursuing Heroes is really wise. Having an existing brand can be good marketing when it’s a big name, but the IP lost its following and now isn’t very highly regarded. Right now this is all just speculation, but maybe Microsoft can restore the show to its former glory with a new cast of heroes and accompanying story arc.
