Hiro is Back and Looking Mean in the First Trailer for Heroes: Reborn
We're liking the look of Heroes: Reborn more and more with every new slice we see of it. After a mysterious first teaser was released earlier this week, NBC has today unveiled the first full trailer for the show, which is scheduled to premiere this fall. 



Heroes: Reborn will introduce a whole new cast of "ordinary people with extraordinary abilities", but as far as this trailer goes, it's the reintroduction of a familiar face that really stands out. Hiro was one of the best things about the original Heroes, so when we heard Masi Oka was returning for Heroes: Reborn, we instantly became a lot more optimistic about the show's success. When Hiro was first introduced, he was a loveably goofy nerd who, out of all the heroes, seemed the most excited about his new-found powers. But the Hiro of Heroes: Reborn is a very different prospect. Appearing clad in black and a zen-like look on his face, his appearance in this trailer just got us even more excited about the show.

NBC has also released a new official synopsis for the show, which sheds a bit more light on all of those "Where are our Heroes" shots from the trailers:

"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")."
