We don’t know much about NBC’s upcoming miniseries Heroes: Reborn, but the network's upfront presentations this week have brought some major intel on the (former) hit series’ revival.

NBC's entertainment chairman, Robert Greenblatt, told reporters in New York that "some familiar faces from the show are bound to drop in” during the 13-episode event series, which will reportedly try to recapture the early magic from the show’s acclaimed debut season.

Greenblatt went on to note original creator Tim Kring’s involvement, confirming Reborn is essentially a “reboot” of the original series, but set in the same universe. He also pointed to the original online series we’d heard about and confirmed it will “ramp into the show” prior to its launch.

So who could come back? The show had more than a dozen stars during its run, so there are more than a few options. What we do know is that Hayden Panettiere made it pretty clear that she is likely not involved, since the first she heard about the revival was when a friend told her it was happening.

Who do you want to see back, and in what capacity?
