Heroes is a cult serial saga about people all over the world discovering that they have superpowers and trying to deal with how this change affects their lives. Not only are they discovering what having superpowers means to them but also the larger picture of where those powers come from and what they might mean to the rest of the world.
A genetics professor. A hospice nurse. A single mom. A street cop. A small town cheerleader. A tormented artist. A computer geek. From places as divergent as Tokyo, India, New York City and Odessa, Texas — they appear to be ordinary people. But they're beginning to find out they're not like everyone else. In fact, they're meant for something much more... Heroes tells the fascinating story of people discovering remarkable abilities — to transport through time and space, to hear another's thoughts, to be physically indestructible, to paint the future. Each must contend with their unique power. And as they struggle to make sense of what and why all this is happening, destiny will ultimately bring them together to change our world.
Season 2 introduces new stories — and new heroes — following the apocalyptic showdown in New York City. Claire has moved with her family to Southern California in order to hide her indestructible abilities and there she encounters a young man with a secret of his own. Matt gains new authority in tracking down a murderous force stalking the Heroes, while Suresh uncovers a virus that could eradicate them all. As each sensational chapter unfolds, there is no resisting the extraordinary.
In season 3, a shocking revelation suddenly divides our heroes and, as a cadre of villains is unleashed upon the world, its Heroes are called to their greatest quest yet.
