NBCUniversal Launches ‘Heroes Reborn’ Companion App

The app features clips from the original Heroes series, as well as a prequel for Heroes Reborn.

NBCUniversal has released a companion app for the upcoming Heroes Reborn television series. The app serves as an overall guide to the Heroes television franchise, which follows the lives of evolved humans with extraordinary powers. The app includes plenty of content from the original television series, including show clips, character information and more.

The app features clips from all four seasons of the original Heroes series, which are organized to help new viewers catch up. Users can watch these clips as a continuous playlist, and share chosen clips with friends on Facebook.

Users looking to learn more about individual characters can do so in the app’s explore feature, which allows them to tap on each character from each season of the series and learn more about them through highlighted clips.

Finally, the Heroes Reborn: Dark Matters prequel series is available to view exclusively within the app. The series bridges the gap between the original Heroes and Heroes Reborn. As of this writing, only the first part of the prequel series is available, with the full six-part prequel becoming available on July 23.

The Heroes Reborn app is available to download for free on the iTunes App Store. Heroes Reborn premieres on NBC on Sept. 24.
