TV Hits ‘Heroes’ Season Three Restarting

NBC’s comic-book- inspired drama “Heroes” became one of the casualties when the Writers Guild of America went on strike last November.

The show shut down after 11 episodes, with the last one airing Dec. 3, 2007. The strike lasted three months, but series creator Tim Kring and NBC decided to wait until this fall to bring “Heroes” back on the air.

Kristen Bell plays Elle Bishop, an unstable girl who has the power to manipulate electricity. She’s facing off with the nefarious Sylar (Zachary Quinto), who can absorb the powers of superheroes he gruesomely kills.
