Masi Oka reprises his role as Hiro Nakamura in a new Heroes Reborn preview
NBC has brought online a new Heroes Reborn preview, offering a look at the upcoming series revival. Check it out in the player below!
Returning cast members for the new Heroes include Jack Coleman as H.R.G., Jimmy Jean-Louis as The Haitian, Masi Oka as Hiro Nakamura, and Greg Grunberg as Matt Parkman. The cast also includes Zachary Levi (of NBC’s “Chuck” and Thor: The Dark World) along with 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”), Gatlin Green (“Criminal Minds”), Ryan Guzman (The Boy Next Door), Sendhil Ramamurthy and Rya Kihlstedt (“Masters of Sex”).
As you can see in the Heroes Reborn preview below, the revival begins a year after 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 (Levi) and Joanne (Shekoni), who are seeking to avenge a tragic loss.
Noah Bennet, aka HRG (Coleman), has gone off the grid, but conspiracy theorist Quentin Frady (Zebrowski) 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 (Kay) just wants to be normal and win the girl of his dreams, Emily (Green), 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 (Yarosh), has been told she is destined for greatness. In Tokyo, a quiet and unique young woman, Miko (Sukezane), 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 (Guzman).
Meanwhile, Erica (Kihlstedt), 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 (Oka), Matt Parkman (Grunberg), Mohinder Suresh (Ramamurthy) and the Haitian (Jean-Louis), among others. Yet, together, their ultimate destiny is nothing less than saving the world and mankind.
Tim Kring serves as writer and executive producer. Peter Elkoff and James Middleton also executive produce. Heroes Reborn is produced by Universal Television, Imperative Entertainment and Tailwind Productions.
The revival will air on Thursdays at 8 p.m. EST starting September 24.
