All 4 Seasons Of ‘Heroes’ Added To BBC iPlayer To Watch Right Now
Are you ready to “save the cheerleader, save the world” again? BBC iPlayer has added all four seasons of award-winning sci-fi drama ‘Heroes’ to the streaming service as a boxset, available to watch right now. Note, this does not include the follow-up miniseries, ‘Heroes Reborn’.
Created by Tim Kring to emulate the storytelling style of American comic books, the critically acclaimed show features an extraordinary ensemble cast that includes Jack Coleman, Hayden Panettiere, Milo Ventimiglia, Masi Oka, Greg Grunberg, Sendhil Ramamurthy, Adrian Pasdar, Zachary Quinto, Ali Larter and James Kyson, amongst many others. The show first aired to UK audiences on BBC Two from 2006-2010.
‘Heroes’ chronicles the lives of a number of ordinary people – from a hospice nurse (Ventimiglia), to a police officer (Grunberg), high school cheerleader (Panettiere), office worker (Oka) and politician (Pasdar) – who begin to discover that they have superhuman abilities. With not much time to come to terms with their new powers, each of the heroes is tasked with doing their part to save the world, all while contending with a mysterious serial killer Sylar (Quinto) who targets those with powers. As the heroes and friends and enemies find each other and learn to use their powers, they discover that all their destinies lead to a final showdown where the fate of the world hangs in the balance.
“Heroes is an iconic sci-fi series and the perfect binge-watch for this summer; whether you witnessed it the first time around or it’s all new to you there are 78 episodes back on BBC iPlayer and ready for you to power through,” commented Controller of BBC iPlayer, Dan McGolpin. “Save the cheerleader, save the world!”
Alongside ‘Heroes’, BBC iPlayer has been building up a nice selection of interesting content over the past few months. The latest new additions include witch-based alt-history drama ‘Fort Salem’ (aka ‘Motherland: Fort Salem’), ‘Riverdale’ spin-off ‘Katy Keene’, Irish coming-of-age sitcom ‘The Young Offenders’, and historical miniseries ‘Mrs. America‘, along with classic series ‘The Real McCoy’, ‘Cutting It’, and ‘Harpers Island’.
‘Heroes’ is produced by Universal Television, a division of Universal Studio Group, and has been acquired for the BBC from NBCUniversal International Distribution.
