The 2015 TV mini-series “Heroes Reborn” is finally getting a Blu-ray Disc release in the form of “Heroes Reborn: Event Series“ on October 23rd via Universal. The 13 episode series was created by Tim Kring, responsible for the original TV series “Heroes” that originally aired on NBC and ran for a total of four seasons (2006-2010). This mini-series served as a continuation of (of sorts) to the original “Heroes” TV series and featured some of the original cast members from that TV show including Jack Coleman, Zachary Levi, Greg Grunberg, Masi Oka, and Sendhil Ramamurthy.
