I clicked play for the first chapter of Heroes Reborn: Dark Matters web series, the prequel to Tim Kring‘s Heroes Reborn limited series, airing in September, and got goosebumps. The first chapter gives a little history about the EVOs (Evolved Humans), via Hero_Truther (good name), and how it went from miraculous wonder to fearful hate.
Watch the entire web series here below.
The 6 webisodes range from 4 to 11-minutes, and despite the short screen time, it is not rushed. Just in the first episode alone, the interaction between Quentin (Henry Zebrowski) and his sister Phoebe (Aislinn Paul), say so much in the silence – very realistic. I’m not going to give away anymore than this… the web series has heightened my Heroes anticipation. Good job Tim Kring!
