It's hard to believe that it's been 11 years since a cheerleader and her band of ordinary people with superhuman powers first captured the attention of millions of viewers. The NBC drama premiered in 2006 — and viewers were instantly captivated by the Heroes, who worked together to save the world.
Since the finale, fan-favorites such as Hayden Panettiere (Claire Bennett), Milo Ventimiglia (Peter Petrelli), and Zachary Quinto (Sylar) have reflected on their roles — and understand why fans still have a soft-spot for the series. "It was such a meaningful experience for me — I loved that job, I loved those people…," Zachary told Buzzfeed. "I mean, it's a great thing to be a part of."
Milo agreed. "Heroes was such a lightning bolt hitting television and really did make such an impact around the world. It was good storytelling and it was a great concept," he told IGN. "A lot of talented people were involved. It's a world that people have always fantasized about, have been fascinated with, and romanticized."
Today, viewers are still taking to social media to profess their love for the show. "NBC heroes shaped so much of me as a person," one fan wrote before another added, "Dang, I really love NBC @heroes. No context, just pure love for the show." And we don't blame them.
However, the cast of Heroes, which ran for four seasons and 77 episodes, has definitely changed since we last saw them on our television screens. Keep scrolling to see what everyone is up to now!
