First glimpse of Heroes Reborn arrives as a teaser trailer.
Fans of Heroes were left teary eyed but somewhat unsurprised in 2010 as the series was cancelled after it's fourth series. A combination of poor writing and delays due to the writers strike had seen it's popularity dwindle and it was only after Season four's climactic ending that people realised there was still life in the franchise.
Heroes Reborn isn't a fifth season however, it is being described as a reboot and will be aired as a 13 episode mini-series. Very little has been revealed regarding the cast or any returning characters but we do know that Jack Coleman (Heroes, Dynasty, Spawn) will be reprising his role as Noah Bennet, the man with the horn rimmed glasses. We also know that Zachary Levi (Chuck, Thor: The Dark World, Tangled) will be playing an as yet un-named character. Other than that we really don't know who will be in it. With Noah Bennet returning there is an outside chance that Hayden Panettiere (Heroes, Nashville, Scream 4) could make an appearance as Noah's daughter, the immortal cheerleader Claire Bennet. Fans will be disappointed to hear that Zachary Quinto (Star Trek, Heroes, American Horror Story) will not be returning, as the twisted Sylar, as he turned down the offer. Ali Larter (Heroes, Final Destination, Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back), who played Niki, Jessica and Tracy, has also turned down the chance to return due to her commitments with TNT show Legends. Finally we know that Milo Ventimiglia (Heroes, Rocky Balboa, Grace of Monaco), who played Peter Petrelli, will also not be returning.
What everyone is surely wondering however is what about ultimate fan favorite Hiro Nakamura, played by Masi Oka (Heroes, Hawaii Five-0, Get Smart)? Well unfortunately there is no news on him either but we seriously hope to see the time travelling legend again.
The teaser trailer does show us both Noah Bennet and Zachary Levi's unknown character as well as another character that we only see the back of. This character is seen, presumably in the arctic, using his abilities to create Aurora in the sky.
You can see the new trailer below.
No release date has yet been announced but we are certainly intrigued.
