NBC made a splash at the Super Bowl on Sunday when they unveiled a 15-second teaser for Heroes Reborn. The trailer, entitled Heroes Reborn: The Aurora, doesn’t give us much to go on, but it definitely gives us Heroes fans something to get excited about! We catch our first glimpse of Zachary Levi (whose character details have yet to be revealed) and the return of the bespectacled H.R.G. (played by the fantastic Jack Coleman). There’s also a mysterious child who seems to be able conjure a beautiful aurora in the sky and who, if trailers for the original Heroes are any indication, could be our first new hero.
Precious little has been revealed about the upcoming 13-episode series. In fact, Zachary Levi and Jack Coleman are the only confirmed cast members so far. Prior to the premiere, NBC plans to launch a digital series that will introduce the new characters and storylines. (With the original Heroes, NBC kept audiences engaged online with a heavy social media presence, interviews and commentary with the stars, and even a webcomic.)
Well, Heroes fans, there are so many questions and so few answers. Is Zachary Levi a hero? Is he working with H.R.G. or against him? Will we see any heroes from the original series? What other powers does the Aurora have? Can she control and manipulate nature in other ways? We need to know these things, NBC!
