Heroes Reborn will continue the popular story of the show Heroes. The reboot is slated for a 13-episode run this coming fall. Before the show airs, there will be a short digital series that’ll introduce the new characters and their storylines. In the finale of the last season of the original show, an event occurs which causes all the heroes of the world to go into hiding.
This new show will open four years after this event and one year after a terrorist attack in Texas. Our heroes each have a deep personal connection to the tragedy and are out to seek revenge, answers, or just a definite solution to the growing darkness.
There will be plenty of new characters. You’ll meet the vengeance seeking married couple, Luke (Zachary Levi) and Joanne Collins (Judith Shekoni), conspiracy theorists like Quentin Frady (Henry Zebrowski), the blossoming fighter Malina (Danika Yarosh), the shady businesswoman Erica (Rya Kihlstedt), teenager Tommy (Robbie Kay), Tommy’s crush Emily (Gatlin Green), the searching Miko Otomo (Kiki Sukezane), and former soldier Carlos (Ryan Guzman). However, viewers will definitely see several familiar faces such as Noah Bennet (Jack Coleman), Hiro Nakamura (Masi Oka), Matt Parkman (Greg Grunberg), Mohinder Suresh (Sendhil Ramamurthy), The Haitian (Jimmy Jean-Louis), Angela Petrelli (Cristine Rose), and Micah Sanders (Noah Gray-Cabey).
As the star with the most fire-power and popularity, the exact gifts of Zachary Levi’s character are being kept much more a secret than the rest. However, it has definitely been revealed that the actor’s character will have a primary role in the show. And he’s absolutely thrilled to be a part of it. As a huge fan of the first show, he has dreamed of becoming involved in the franchise. Levi is no newbie to NBC. He has already done several jobs for them, the most memorable of which is his famous stint on Chuck. Along with his co-stars on Heroes Reborn, Levi is expected to bring lots of great action and acting.
This series will see our heroes’ face-off against a new foe: The evil Renautas Conglomerate. Our heroes must work together as one to save the impending doom that awaits humanity if Renautus succeeds in its dark plan. Critics say that this current season is just as fascinating and well done as the first season of the original.
So get ready fans, this is sure to be a wild and awesome ride!
