HERO Season 3

The wait is finally over! In a STAR WORLD exclusive, the all-new season of Heroes blasts off on Thu 6 Nov at 10pm. In this much-anticipated third season, the stakes are higher, the villains are tougher and the threat of an impending apocalypse has never been greater!In the brand-new chapter, titled ´Volume 3: Villains´, a group of highly developed super villains escape from prison and unleash their evil on an unsuspecting world. Meanwhile serial killer Sylar (Zachary Quinto) returns with enhanced powers and Nathan (Adrian Pasdar) begins a new journey to understand his powers. Elsewhere, Peter (Milo Ventimiglia) is forced to take sides, Matt (Greg Grunberg) learns new ways to use his ability and Mohinder (Sendhil Ramamurthy) begins a dangerous transformation.

As for fan favorite Hiro (Masi Oka), he chases down a superfast villain named Daphne (Brea Grant) who outraces him at every turn. “This season we are not really introducing any new characters,” explains Heroes´ writer-creator Tim Kring. “We are concentrating very much on the core characters that we´ve had for two seasons.” While fans expect the super-strong baddies to perform evil deeds, Kring hints that some of the good guys will also venture over to the dark side this season. “These are ordinary people,” explains Kring, “and they make decisions based on who they are and the circumstances they find themselves in.

It was always built into the premise that our core group of people would be tempted by the circumstances they were in [to use their powers for evil].” As Kring points out, though, newcomers to the show will be able to pick up the plot. “We didn´t want to feel like you had to have watched two years of Heroes to catch up,” he says. “We wanted to answer things really quickly so viewers could move forward and have a clean path in front of them.” – ASTRO
