Yes, it’s actually happening. During the Super Bowl, we got the first look at the ‘Heroes’ reboot, ‘Heroes Reborn’ — and you guys, it looks good. Watch the teaser here.
We first learned that Heroes would be returning in February 2014, during a quick Winter Olympics TV spot. But those were just words — this is actually a look at the new show Heroes Reborn! The new show will star Chuck’s Zachary Levi and Heroes alum Jack Coleman, who played Noah Bennett on the original, and they’re both in this brand new teaser. Watch it here.
‘Heroes Reborn’ Trailer
In the new trailer we see both Jack and Zachary when they see the Aurora for the first time as well as a little girl! Now, that’s pretty much all we see and it gives away nothing. Plus, we still don’t have an air date… but regardless, it’ll be a hit just like the original was, which ran on NBC from 2006 to 2010.
We couldn’t be more excited for the new show — and we’re not the only ones!
“There are a few franchises I’ve always wanted to be a part of, and Heroes is one of them,” Zachary told our sister site, TVLine. “Chuck gave me the opportunity to wield some fun powers, but an entire world with superpowers is a world I’ve always wanted to explore. I’m so grateful for the opportunity to work with Tim [Kring], and the awesome team around him, in bringing this to life. Moreover, to be working with NBC again is such a reward in itself, as my bonds and relationships there are deep.”
Will Ali Larter Return?
So will other alum return? Ali Larter didn’t rule it out.
“When I saw that, I was like, ‘Wow! Great!’ I’m super happy for [creator Tim Kring], and if that’s what he wants to do I think that’s fantastic,” she said in a statement. “I haven’t talked to the rest of the cast. I don’t even think it’s written yet, so I don’t even know what they’re going to do with it. I just know that my face was splashed all over, and I got about a thousand calls from it.”
However, those calls weren’t so bad.
“It was an amazing time in my life. The first season of the show will forever be one of the best times I’ve ever had. It was just a really special time,” she said. “For that, I hope that it work out well for them, and I wish them only the best.”
