Heroes Reborn to air on 5* in the UK.
Channel 5 have acquired the rights to the forthcoming Heroes reboot series, Heroes Reborn, for its sister station 5*.
The network, owned by MTV owners Viacom, has bought the rights to the thirteen part NBC series, which will air next year.
Head of Acquistions Katie Keenan told Broadcast “As 5* moves to being the place for the hottest young drama around, Heroes Reborn is an exciting new addition to its 2016 line-up”.
“The channel will make a great home for the show as we introduce the world of the Heroes to a new audience as well as the many fans who enjoyed the original series.”
The show is the latest in a series of superhero shows to be acquired in the UK, following the likes of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Supergirl, and The Flash.
