Remember mega TV show Heroes? The show first hit our screens waaaaaaaay back in September 2006 and kept us hooked for four epic seasons.

The show told the story of ordinary people whose lives were transformed when they discovered they had varying superhuman powers - from time-travel to the ability to fly. Starring Milo Ventimiglia and Hayden Panettiere - we were introduced to characters one-by-one as they all became embroiled in a tale of good vs evil and personal discovery. We were hooked. 

Turns out, when the show went off-air in 2009, the producers actually started making a web series called Heroes 360 Experience - and because the fans loved it so much, the producers are BRINGING BACK THE ACTUAL SHOW. Well.. sort of. It was announced in Feburary that a spin-off called Heroes Reborn was going to hit screens in Summer 2015, posting a trailer for the 13-programme series online. 

We're excited already - even though the trailer gives *literally* nothing away. And despite the news - revealed last week - that most of the cast probably aren't coming back. Last week it was reported that Jack Coleman will return as Noah Bennet but Hayden won't be returning to play his daughter and Milo (aka Peter Petrelli) also revealed he wasn't going to take part during a recent fan Q&A.

'I think it’s going to be hard to recapture what we had when the show was out, to be very honest,' he said. 'I’ve had a lot of fans running up to me, very excited. And I think the expectation is high — meaning people want, and are expecting, that the show is going to pick up right where it left off.'

All this talk of the show left us wondering - what are the original cast up to now? Find out in the gallery above.
