NBC plans for Heroes to come back as Heroes Reborn

If you were paying attention to the delayed and highly edited coverage of the Olympics last night, you might have caught wind that NBC is planning on bringing Heroes back, and gave a zero-content teaser:
Heroes Reborn is slated for 13 episodes sometime in 2015, and creator/producer Tim Kring will return – but that’s all we really know about it. NBC seems to be keeping everything else under wraps, but Jennifer Salke, President of Entertainment at NBC, said in a statement released afterwards, “We’re thrilled that visionary creator Tim Kring was as excited about jumping back into this show as we were and we look forward to all the new textures and layers Tim plans to add to his original concept. Until we get closer to air in 2015, the show will be appropriately shrouded in secrecy, but we won’t rule out the possibility of some of the show’s original cast members popping back in.”
The question is, will the fans come back? After the first season people started to tune out when the storyline became less cohesive and more random. What would it take to pull you back in?
