Heroes Reborn: The Cheerleader Is Dead When Series Returns

"She died a year prior to our story starting."

If you were hoping to see a return for Hayden Panettiere on the new series of ‘Heroes Reborn’ then you’ll be disappointed because her character of Clair Bennett is dead when the series begins.

Creator Tim Kring has revealed that Claire (played by Hayden Panettiere) is dead when the events of Heroes Reborn take place.

He said at the 2015 Television Critics Association summer press tour: “She died a year prior to our story starting. That sort of gets into the mythology that’s attached to the original show.”

Returning however will be her father Noah Bennett who according to Kring will be the conduit for much of the revivals mythology as well as that of the original shows mythology.

The new NBC series sees many returning faces including Jack Coleman, Masi Oka, Greg Grunberg and adds new cast members such as Zachary Levi and Ryan Guzman.

Kring said: “None of the former characters except for Jack’s character is in every episode. All the characters that return are peppered in and out of the show.”

Heroes Reborn will premiere with a two-hour slot on September 24 at 8pm on NBC in the US.
