Heroes is an American science fiction television drama series created by Tim Kring, which premiered on NBC on September 25, 2006. The plot tells the stories of disparate and ordinary individuals from around the world who inexplicably develop superhuman abilities, and their roles in preventing catastrophes and saving humanity.

Kring and the writers have an idea of where the series is heading for the first five seasons.
