Back in February 2014, we freaked out a little when NBC made a surprise announcement that American sci-fi TV series “Heroes” is going to get a reboot this year. The 4-season series was the series that assembled the then-rising stars such as Zachary Quinto (of “Star Trek: Into Darkness” fame), Hayden Panettier, Adrian Pasdar, Masi Oka, etc.
Despite being an iconic series in the history of television, “Heroes” eventually went downhill due to the WGA strike.
A year later, the cable network once again surprised the public through a new teaser trailer of the reboot series during the Super Bowl.
How does the teaser trailer looks like, you ask? It certainly looks promising, though we aren’t really sure what happened in the teaser trailer. In the trailer, a young girl walks towards a mountain while Jack Coleman’s character, Noah Bennet looks at the girl from behind. The girl appears to have the ability to control the skies as she was able to create the beautiful aurora borealis in the “Last Airbender” style.
Are we looking at the first aurora bender? We don’t know but it seems like Noah Bennett isn’t the only man that witnessed her special powers.
We’ve also gotten our first look at Zachary Levi‘s character in the 15-second teaser. Best known for his nerdy role in the TV series “Chuck”, Zachary Levi was announced to be the leading cast for “Heroes Reborn”. Though no information was given about his character, he was seen looking at both Noah Bennett and the young girl from behind as well.
So many questions were left behind by the teaser trailer but it certainly helped to create the hype. So far, Coleman and Levy are confirmed to star in the series but the storyline has not been revealed yet. Titled “Heroes Reborn”, the reboot is a 13-episode mini series that will be produced by Tim Kring, the mastermind behind the original “Heroes” series. Kring will return to develop the series and NBC Entertainment President Jennifer Salke stated in a press release that they will not rule out the possibility of some of the show’s original cast members popping back in.
While NBC kept mum about “Heroes Reborn”, check out the teaser trailer below:
