NBC Reveals First ‘Heroes Reborn’ Trailer and Premiere Date

NBC has unleashed the first Heroes Reborn trailer while also unveiling its premiere date. Starting Thursday, September 24, 2015, Heroes will return to NBC after five years for a 13-episode event series. While some old faces return, such as Hiro, Matt Parkman, and HRG, there will be many new characters with abilities I hope will be more exciting than someone’s tattoo displaying future events.

The first Heroes Reborn trailer is a nice set up for what’s to come, teasing just enough to bring back some interest in a show that was cancelled without a proper send off. (Those last two seasons were pretty horrendous. They were like Dexter final season quality  bad.) The footage bears some resemblance to the series’ first season, setting up an inspirational message of hope and advocating positive change through hidden potential.

Although the trailer itself doesn’t offer any kind of context about what we can expect plot-wise, NBC was kind enough to give us the official synopsis for Heroes Reborn:

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”).

Meanwhile, Erica (Rya Kihlstedt, “Masters of Sex”), 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.

Vague in terms of what abilities we can expect from this new crop of powered people, but at least we now have some sense of what’s at stake. My guess is that the vigilantes have been framed by the tech conglomerate and it’s up to Hiro and HRG to figure out how to sort out this mess.

Executive produced by Tim Kring, Peter Elkoff and James Middleton, Heroes Reborn will bring back original cast members Jack Coleman, Greg Grunberg, Sendhil Ramamurthy, Jimmy Jean-Louis, and Masi Oka. They’ll be joined by a few new faces, including Zachary Levi (of NBC’s “Chuck” and the Marvel franchise “Thor”), Ryan Guzman (“The Boy Next Door”), Robbie Kay (“Once Upon a Time”), Danika Yarosh (“Shameless”), Judith Shekoni (“The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2″), Kiki Sukezane (“Death Yankee 3″), Henry Zebrowski (NBC’s “A to Z”) and Gatlin Green (“Criminal Minds”). The new 13-episode “event” series is set to premiere this fall on NBC at 8 p.m., Thursday, September 24, 2015.

NBC Offers a First Look at ‘Heroes Reborn’ and the Return of HRG

NBC Offers a First Look at 'Heroes Reborn' and the Return of HRG

When I first learned that NBC would be reviving their superhero series Heroes, which that had a strong start and the limpest of exits, I let out a snortle and went back to business as usual. But a lot has changed in the realm of superheroes in pop culture since 2010 when Heroes debuted its final episode without receiving a proper final series. There now have been two Avengers movies from Marvel and DC is setting up a Justice League movie. Since NBC Universal doesn’t own the rights to any DC or Marvel characters, why not revive a property that was kinda hot back in its heyday? So here we have our first look at Heroes Reborn, a 13-episode “event series” that aims to rekindle that lost spark of what was once a promising show. Continue reading

(500) Days of Britta

One of my most favorite movies ever to watch over and over again would have to be (500) Days of Summer. Recently, I have come to appreciate and love, the somewhat of a sleeper hit, but more under-appreciated NBC comedy, Community. If you put them both together you come up with an awesome little parody trailer for a fictional movie (500) Days of Britta. If you are unfamiliar with the movie (500) Days of Summer or Community, well, YOU BETTER GET ON IT! But in all seriousness folks, (500) Days of Summer is a great movie about love and loss between a couple and Community has a pair of interestingly fun characters who always have some sort of sexual tension, especially in the first season, Jeff and Britta. After the jump catch the great fan made trailer by YouTube user, !
