There have been plenty of TV shows like Heroes that have taken ordinary people and turn them into extraordinary humans with super powers. Though Heroes is all about normal people working together and using their super powers to prevent a catastrophe, we think it is definitely one of the best science fiction shows to hit the small screen. The series lasted four seasons and has been off air since 2010. However, in 2015 a spin off called Heroes Reborn was released and is definitely worth the watch! If you are looking for another show to fulfill your science fiction superhero needs, we’ve got your covered! Here are four shows similar to Heroes.

3. No Ordinary Family
