Heroes is returning sooner than you think!
NBC.com on July 14 will debut the opening chapter in a three-part Heroes Web series titled Going Postal. (You can check out a sneak preview here.) It's about a seemingly ordinary mailman who has one of those extra-ordinary abilities that are more a curse than a blessing for characters in the television series.
Kiko Ellsworth, who is best known for his work on the ABC soap operas Port Charles and General Hospital and was featured on the Showtime series Dexter last year, has the lead role of mail carrier Echo DeMille. His co-stars include Rebeka Montoya and Mark Steger.
I hear that if the Webisodes are well received the DeMille character may appear on Heroes at some point next season.
Parts 2 and 3 of Going Postal will debut on July 21 and 28.
Heroes the Television Series will begin its third season on September 22.
