The Seven Network has confirmed an airdate for Heroes Reborn. The US action series based upon the 2006 drama Heroes will premiere in Australia with a double episode at 8:30pm Wednesday, September 30th.

The original Heroes was a huge ratings success in Australia for its first season, but ratings quickly declined with viewers complaining the show lacked suspense. Heroes Reborn will feature some characters from the original series. It will premiere in Australia 5 days after the US meaning diehard fans will be tempted toward pirate websites for an advanced look.

The saga behind the 2006 breakout series “Heroes” will continue this fall as creator Tim Kring returns to the fold and develops new layers to his original superhero concept. This highly anticipated 13-episode event series will reconnect with the basic elements of the show’s first season, where ordinary people were waking up to the fact that they had extraordinary abilities.
