Five years after “Heroes” went off the air, NBC is going to give it another go with “Heroes Reborn”, an upcoming 13-episode miniseries that takes place after the original series left off, and your first taste of what’s coming has arrived with a brand new trailer.
The new miniseries takes place after those with supernatural powers are blamed for a massive terrorist attack in Odessa, Texas, causing the original Heroes to go into hiding.
Some familiar faces will be returning – such as Hiro Nakamura (Masi Oka), The Haitian (Jimmy Jean-Louis), HRG (Jack Coleman), Mohinder Suresh (Sendhil Ramamurthy), Angela Petrelli (Cristine Rose), Micah (Noah Gray-Cabey), and Matt Parkman (Greg Grunberg).
Meanwhile, a batch of new characters are taking center stage including: vigilantes Luke (Zachary Levi) and Joanne (Judith Shekoni); conspiracy theorist Quentin Frady (Henry Zebrowski), who tries to show HRG the truth behind the Odessa attack; Malina (Danika Yarosh) who uncovers hidden powers after a sheltered upbringing; Erica (Rya Kihlstedt), the head of a highly successful tech company known as “Renautas”, who has her own hidden agenda; Tommy (Robbie Kay), a seemingly normal teenager who has a crush on his dream girl, Emily (Gatlin Green), but soon discovers that he has a horrifying ability; Miko (Kiki Sukezane) a girl in Tokyo looking for her missing father that hides a dangerous but powerful secret; and Carlos (Ryan Guzman), a former soldier who slowly learns what it means to be a hero.
But what does it all add up to? “Heroes Reborn” will premiere on NBC on Thursday, Sept. 24th.
