The first trailer for the anticipated reboot of Heroes has arrived. It shows more new footage than the previously released teaser.
The trailer, which can be viewed below, begins by asking “where are the heroes?” through graffiti that hints at a troubled world. The 13-episode mini-series takes place five years after the events in the original Heroes. The action packed trailer shows newcomers to the series and returning characters.
“It doesn’t matter how ordinary you think you are. We all have the potential to be heroes,” is a first look at the show’s dialogue and sets up the shots of the main characters. Returning to the reboot from the original series include Masi Oka, Jack Coleman, Greg Grunberg, Sendhil Ramamurthy, and Jimmy Jean-Louis. Newcomers include Zach Levi, Kiki Sukezane and Ryan Guzman, according to TV Guide.
NBC also released a lengthy synopsis for the series that can be read in its entirety below. In brief, from Heroes creator Tim Kring, the show follows a group of people with extraordinary abilities who were blamed for a terrorist attack and are now on the run. New powers are discovered, old characters cross paths with new ones, and there are plenty of secrets and mysteries to go around.
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, “Once Upon a Time”) 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, including Hiro Nakamura (Masi Oka), Matt Parkman (Greg Grunberg), Mohinder Suresh (Sendhil Ramamurthy) and the Haitian (Jimmy Jean-Louis), among others. Yet, together, their ultimate destiny is nothing less than saving the world and mankind.
Kring is an executive producer along with James Middleton and Peter Elkoff. Heroes Reborn is produced by Imperative Entertainment, in association with Universal Television. It premieres on September 24 on NBC.
