One of the most intriguing sci-fi series of the fall looks to bring super-powered teens back to prime time, and now we have a ton of new footage from The CW’s Tomorrow People to show just how fun it could be.

A reboot of a long-running 1970s British series, the shiny new version looks like a cross between X-Men and Heroes — with this latest trailer definitely channeling the Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters vibe.

With executive producers Marc Guggenheim (Arrow) and Julie Plec (Vampire Diaries) behind the scenes, this one looks like it could strike the perfect balance between superheroics and teen angst. If they can avoid the convoluted pitfalls of Heroes, this could be one of the breakout hits of the fall.

What do you think of the new footage? Do you plan on checking this one out?
