‘Heroes Reborn:’ Meet the new heroes

“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.
