Heroes Reborn premieres tomorrow night, so NBC threw us one more bone before we are immersed in EVO land. Tim Kring‘s 13-episode limited series picks up years after the Claire Bennet came out to the world, but now Evolved Humans are in hiding after being blamed for a terrorist attack in Odessa, Texas. New EVOs are discovering their powers, and old EVOs are taking up the mantle to answer the call, “Where are the heroes?”
Check out the sneak peek clip, plus 2 others, and the official synopsis below.
In the sneak peek, Carlos (Ryan Guzman) is walking with a boy, who worships the Evo, El Vengador, but Carlos’s brother, does not approve. Carlos gives him a diagnosis on a car problem in his shop, and they argue about how he disappointed their father when Carlos went into the army. I immediately tried to figure out Carlos’s power (talks to cars?), but couldn’t.
What do you think it is?
Enjoy the clip, the promo that has Noah (Jack Coleman) standing over Claire’s body (we assume), and the Malina promo.
Watch the 2-hour premiere of Heroes Reborn tomorrow night at 8pm ET on NBC.
NBC’s press release:
From Creator/Executive Producer Tim Kring, who imagined NBC’s original critically acclaimed 2006 “Heroes” series, comes “Heroes Reborn,” an epic 13-episode event series that chronicles the lives of ordinary people who discover they possess extraordinary abilities.
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 HRG (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.
