NBC has released new character motion posters for Heroes Reborn, the miniseries continuation of Tim Kring‘s Heroes, which ran from 2006-2010 on the network. Kring is also in charge of this 13-episode series, which goes back to basics – when ordinary people discover extraordinary powers.
Check out the motion posters and the ones set to music below.
The eleven posters are of all new characters, with the exception of Noah Bennet aka HRG (Jack Coleman), and all give a hint to something, whether it be their motivation, reason, or actual fate. I think we’re gonna need a few more clues, NBC! For example, Carlos (Ryan Guzman) says “Embrace who you are,” while Joanne’s (Judith Shekoni) says, “Hunt what you hate.” And she’s holding a gun with an evil little smile. Not obvious clues, but something.
Greg Grunberg, Sendhil Ramamurthy, Jimmy Jean-Louis, Cristine Rose, Masi Oka, and Noah Gray-Cabey (Matt Parkman, Mohinder Suresh, The Haitian, Angela Petrelli, Hiro Nakamura, and Micah Sanders) are all set to return. I hope more originals do! I mean, I was looking at some of the non-main actors on the original series – George Takei, Clea Duvall, Nicholas D’Agosto (Harvey Dent on Gotham), Richard Roundtree, Jayma Mays and Diana Agron from Glee, Ray Park, Kristen Bell, David Anders – the list goes on and on. I know it’s only set for the one more season, but I’m really hoping for more.
Where can I put in my request for Sylar and Peter Petrelli?
Heroes Reborn airs September 24th on NBC.
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.
Joining Kring are executive producers James Middleton (“Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles”) and Peter Elkoff (“Sons of Anarchy”). “Heroes Reborn” is produced by Imperative Entertainment, in association with Universal Television.
