Heroes Reborn Cast

In this episode we preview NBC’s new event series Heroes Reborn. It stars Jack Coleman back as Noah “HRG” Bennet. Others that will appear at some point during the 13-episode run are Masi Oka’s Hiro, Greg Grunberg’s Matt Parkman, Sendhil Ramamurthy’s Mohinder Suresh, Jimmy Jean-Louis’ Haitian and a few others. The new cast includes Zachary Levi (Chuck), Judith Shekoni (EastEnders), Henry Zebrowski (A to Z), Robbie Kay (Once Upon a Time), Kiki Sukezane, Ryan Guzman (Pretty Little Liars) and more.

Heroes Reborn picks up five years after the end of Heroes where 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. Major storylines introduced in the first couple hours are HRG getting back in the game after a conspiracy nut tracks him down and clues him into the truth behind what happened in Odessa. A couple of vigilantes that lost someone in the attack and blames those with abilities. A teen in hiding that doesn’t know how his ability works. A young woman trying to track down her missing father. And, a few others.

It was very interesting dipping back into the world or Heroes, let’s just hope this is more season one than subsequent seasons of that one.

Jason,

I’ve really been enjoying these previews! It’s become part of my morning/daily routine to listen to these. Heroes Reborn is one of my most anticipated new shows because I adored the original series up until the end. It was the first show that I really, really got into: researched online, listened to podcasts, etc. I was devastated when it ended. The trailers have made it look great and your review assures me that it will be worth the time. The original series ran for four seasons, not five, as you said in this episode. Also, check your html on this post because the whole thing is showing as a hyperlink. You must have missed an end tag somewhere in there. Keep up the great work!

Stephanie, Thanks for letting me know about the hyperlink. I swear I checked the post before I published it and it wasn’t like that. Not sure how part of the html link code got deleted and then WordPress figured the best place to close out the tag was at the end of the post.

As for the five seasons, yeah, I think I confused myself with the five years after etc.

Glad you are enjoying them. The next two will be out Sunday for Blood & Oil and Quantico. Still trying to get used to talking to some fictitious person in your mind. So used to recording a conversation at TVx3.

Yeah, like I’ve told you elsewhere, it takes a while to get used to talking to yourself. It does get easier and you are doing well. Keep it up and I’ll keep listening :-)
