Heroes: Reborn first trailer with action-packed new footage

(NBC)

The first real Heroes: Reborn trailer is here!

Below is NBC’s first significant look at the event-series reboot of its sci-fi hit, which launches for 13 episodes this fall. Reborn picks up five years after the events in the original NBC series, and includes newcomers to the franchise Zach Levi, Kiki Sukezane and Ryan Guzman, along with familiar faces such as Masi Oka and Jack Coleman. The show begins at a time when the heroes from the original series (who went public with their talents in the previous show’s series finale) are largely in hiding (there’s an offiical new description below). Once again expect to meet a diverse array of ordinary people with extraordinary abilities from around the globe. Here’s the trailer: 

Here’s NBC’s new official description of the 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, “Chuck”) and Joanne (Judith Shekoni, “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2”), who are seeking to avenge a tragic loss.

Noah Bennet, aka H.R.G. (Jack Coleman, “Heroes”), has gone off the grid but conspiracy theorist Quentin Frady (Henry Zebrowski, “A to Z”) 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, “Criminal Minds”), 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, “Shameless”), has been told she is destined for greatness. In Tokyo, a quiet and unique young woman, Miko (Kiki Sukezane, “Death Yankee 3”), 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, “The Boy Next Door”).
