NBC’s thirteen-episode event series Heroes Reborn premieres Thursday, September 24 at 8 p.m. ET/PT.

“We want fans to have a place where they can "speed binge" – either by season or by character – and experience all the excitement of Heroes and, at the same time, look into the future to see how Heroes Reborn continues this extraordinary compelling franchise,” said Robert Hayes, Executive Vice President, Digital, NBC Entertainment. “This one-of-a-kind app is a one-stop shop for any Heroes aficionado.”

“Anyone who watches Dark Matters will find the ton of clues, backstory and Easter eggs that we've layered in, said Heroes Reborn Executive Producer Tim Kring. “Watching it before seeing Heroes Reborn really completes the entire saga, and guarantees a deeper more rewarding experience for the fans,” Kring continued.

“Heroes Reborn: Dark Matters” Digital Prequel Series:

The digital prequel Heroes Reborn: Dark Matters bridges the gap between the original series and “Heroes Reborn,” reintroducing viewers to the Heroes universe and unveiling a whole new generation of “Heroes.”

It's been five years since the public became aware of the existence of evolved humans or "EVOs" who possess incredible, supernatural abilities. In that time, the public has grown to either fear or revere EVOs. An online community forms around the rallying cry of the anonymous Hero_Truther, who seeks to humanize EVOs in the wake of lies, slander and fear mongering. Among those posting their personal stories is Phoebe Frady (Aislinn Paul, Degrassi: The Next Generation), who is encouraged to document her origin story by her brother, Quentin (Indie Series Awards nominee Henry Zebrowski, A to Z). But as Phoebe struggles to control her power, she attracts unwanted attention from a mysterious new company.
