Currently, Heroes: Origins is set to be 6 one-hour stand alone episodes. Each episode will focus on the back story of a character, (I think they are all new...). It was suppossed to be that fans would vote on their favorite new character and that character would be part of Season 3, but Tim Kring decided to change that. Now, the episodes are probably going to include some things that happened in the regulur Heroes episodes, and then some of the characters will have an impact on Heroes at a later date.
These episodes will most likely air while Heroes is on hiatus in the spring or Heroes will run 24 episodes straight and Origins will air after. Origins will probably air to cut down on reruns so that viewers stick with show. Especially with the 3 million viewers drop between early March and late April.
Hope that helped!
