Remember Heroes? The awesome show (at least in it’s first season) where we had to “Save the Cheerleader”? Well, it’s back…with a twist. While some fan favorites are back (Masi Oka and Jack Coleman) from the original, the rebooted series has a bunch of newcomers (Henry Zebrowski, Judith Shekoni, Robbie Kay, Kiki Sukezane, Ryan Guzman, Gatlin Green and Danika Yarosh) and one that may be very familiar to Chuck fans. That’s right, Zachary Levi is also part of the new cast…and he doesn’t look to be a good guy this time.
Taking place five years after the end of Heroes, the folks from the original series are back in hiding. Watch the trailer and read the official description from NBC below:
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”).
