The cavernous Hall H quickly reached its 6500 person capacity for a panel premiering the entire first episode of Heroes’ third season.
Jeph Loeb brought out the entire cast (I think that curly-haired kid was the only one not there) before bringing Heroes creator Tim Kring to the stage. Kring showed the audience an attaché, which held a copy of the new episode inside.
After apologizing for Season 2, the series is looking to getting back to the first season in every possible way—especially the plot.
Chapter One is titled “The Second Coming,” and looks like it will follow our ragtag ensemble of powers as they try to prevent a catastrophic future timeline. Again.
Also, Sylar’s back to his skull-busting ways and one of the main cast-members gets a first-hand taste.
After the episode screened, the cast came back to answer some mostly painful audience Q &A.
Asked to explain the season is a word, Kring replied “adrenaline” – teasing Dr. Suresh’s new discovery that looks to change the mythology of the Heroes-verse.
The episode was a packed 40-plus minutes that set up the year’s individual storylines for our players—for better or worse.
Expect a more in-depth PCZ review of the episode after our con-hangover.
