Hayden Panettiere Not Asked to be in New Heros Reboot

As most Heroes fans already know, NBC will be reviving the popular show in 2015 with a 13-episode miniseries event titled Heroes:Reborn. And while it remains to be seen who exactly will be in it, one person who apparently won't be appearing in the reboot is none other than Hayden Panettiere, aka cheerleader Claire Bennet.

What's more, the 24-year-old actress told Cosmopolitan she didn't know the sci-fi program was even coming back to the airwaves until a family member informed her. "Well, it was a shock to me," Panettiere said. "In fact, I believe I became privy to that through my cousin. She sent me a text message about it." "I mean, we had nothing, nothing to do with it," she continued. "It will definitely be interesting to see how they reinvent it."

Of course, one reason Panettiere may not have been asked to be in Heroes:Reborn is that it's quite possible that her character, Claire, won't even be featured. "I think it's a whole new set of characters," the Nashville star pointed out. "Who knows? It's a little bit of an interesting feeling because you go, 'That was our show, our home, our family,' something that we had a major part in creating."

Panettiere added, "I hope that they don't have somebody else playing our characters, that would be a little dagger in the heart. But, you never know. I wish them success in it, for sure E News reports." It was in February that NBC announced the Heroes: Reborn project.

"The enormous impact Heroes had on the television landscape when it first launched in 2006 was eye-opening," NBC Entertainment President Jennifer Salke said in a statement at the time. "Shows with that kind of resonance don't come around often and we thought it was time for another installment. We're thrilled that visionary creator Tim Kring was as excited about jumping back into this show as we were and we look forward to all the new textures and layers Tim plans to add to his original concept."

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
