NBC has released a brand-new Heroes Reborn video featurette profiling fan-fave character Noah Bennet, aka HRG, played by Jack Coleman.
The 13-episode event series picks up five years after the original series ended, in the wake of a terrorist attack that’s left Odessa, Texas, in ruins. Heroes fans will recall that Odessa is the home of Claire Bennet (Hayden Penettiere) -- who is seemingly dead when the Tim Kring series returns. Blamed for the tragedy, those with extraordinary abilities (known as evolved humans, or “Evos”) are now in hiding, dead or on the run. So is our main man HRG, who was always one step ahead in the original series but now, not so much. No doubt thanks to Jimmy Jean-Louis' Haitian.
Conspiracy theorist Quentin Frady (Henry Zebrowski) manages to track HRG down to get him to find out what really happened in Odessa. In the video, Coleman says, “HRG, as our story begins, is doing what he did a long time ago: selling cars in Austin, Texas. HRG has some memory missing — not a lot, only part of a day, but crucial information. So he has to piece it back together.”
Along with Jack Coleman, Heroes Reborn sees the return of Masi Oka, Greg Grunberg, Sendhil Ramamurthy, Jimmy Jean-Louis and Cristine Rose. Newcomers include Zachary Levi, Kiki Sukezane, Robbie Kay, Danika Yarosh, Judith Shekoni, Ryan Guzman, Henry Zebrowski, Gatlin Green, Dylan Bruce, Francesca Eastwood and Nazneen Contractor.
Heroes Reborn premieres with a two-hour episode on Sept. 24 on NBC.
