'Heroes Reborn': New trailer reveals new powers, some familiar faces

At least one familiar face is onscreen as Hiro Nakamura (Masi Oka) gets a quick spotlight in NBC's just-released new trailer for its 13-episode fall event "Heroes Reborn," which premieres Sept. 24.

The show's official series synopsis was also revealed, detailing the premise:

"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), has gone off the grid but conspiracy theorist Quentin Frady (Henry Zebrowski) finds him and opens his eyes to the truth behind the Odessa tragedy."

There's more to the press release, including the names and situations of some of the new heroes:

"While in hiding, some are discovering their newfound skills. Awkward teen Tommy (Robbie Kay, Peter Pan in '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')."

The release also details the bad guys and shady characters, but makes mention of familiar faces from the original series that we'll see, including Hiro, Matt Parkman (Greg Grunberg), Mohinder Suresh (Sendhil Ramamurthy) and the Haitian (Jimmy Jean-Louis), among others.
