The first official trailer for Heroes Reborn has finally been released online, featuring a slew of new characters (including fan favorite Zachary Levi) and some welcome, familiar faces (Hiro! H.R.G.!).

Along with the goosebump-inducing trailer, NBC has also unveiled a first extended — and very detailed (so be aware of possible SPOILERS) — synopsis for Tim Kring’s upcoming 13-episode event series. Heroes Reborn reprises the concept of the critically acclaimed 2006 series chronicling the lives of ordinary people doing extraordinary things with their newfound abilities. Check it out:

Here’s the synopsis:

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").

Meanwhile, Erica (Rya Kihlstedt, "Masters of Sex"), the head of the highly successful tech conglomerate Renautas, has an agenda of her own.

For better or for worse, some are fated to cross paths with assorted heroes of the past, including Hiro Nakamura (Masi Oka), Matt Parkman (Greg Grunberg), Mohinder Suresh (Sendhil Ramamurthy) and the Haitian (Jimmy Jean-Louis), among others. Yet, together, their ultimate destiny is nothing less than saving the world and mankind.

The series will have a major presence at this year's San Diego Comic-Con, with a panel taking place on Sunday afternoon in Hall H, the biggest venue of the convention center. Question: Will you attend? And do you think it was future or present Hiro in that trailer?

Heroes Reborn is set to premiere on Sept. 24. In the wise words of Hiro Nakamura: Yatta!
