“Heroes Reborn” gets a big unveiling at San Diego Comic-Con on July 12, but NBC has offered some teasers about the upcoming series.
The 13-episode event series comes from Tim Kring, the creator/executive producer of the original 2006 “Heroes.” Like the original, the story focuses on ordinary people who discover they possess extraordinary abilities. It debuts at 7 p.m. Sept. 24.
NBC recently released a synopsis for the series, which brings back some original characters while introducing new ones.
Hiro Nakamura (Masi Oka), Matt Parkman (Greg Grunberg), Mohinder Suresh (Sendhil Ramamurthy) and the Haitian (Jimmy Jean-Louis) are some of the original heroes who will mix with the new heroes.
Here’s NBC’s synopsis, with gifs of the new characters. Above is the latest trailer for the new series.
A year ago, a terrorist attack in Odessa, Texas, left the city decimated. Blamed for the tragic event, those with extraordinary abilities are in hiding or on the run from those with nefarious motives.
Two such vigilantes include Luke (Zachary Levi) and Joanne (Judith Shekoni), who are seeking to avenge a tragic loss.
Noah Bennet, aka H.R.G. (Jack Coleman), has gone off the grid but conspiracy theorist Quentin Frady (Henry Zebrowski) finds him and opens his eyes to the truth behind the Odessa tragedy.
While in hiding, some are discovering their newfound skills.
Awkward teen Tommy (Robbie Kay) just wants to be normal and win the girl of his dreams, Emily (Gatlin Green), but normalcy is virtually impossible after learning of a new ability that terrifies him.
Coming from a very sheltered upbringing, a bold and ethereal teenager, Malina (Danika Yarosh), has been told she is destined for greatness.
In Tokyo, a quiet and unique young woman, Miko (Kiki Sukezane), is trying to track down her missing father while hiding an extraordinary secret that will make her a force to be reckoned with.
Elsewhere, a different type of hero is emerging through former soldier Carlos (Ryan Guzman).
Meanwhile, Erica (Rya Kihlstedt), the head of the highly successful tech conglomerate Renautas, has an agenda of her own.
For better or for worse, some are fated to cross paths with assorted heroes of the past. Yet, together, their ultimate destiny is nothing less than saving the world and mankind.
