Five years after the original Heroes ended, Heroes Reborn will reintroduce fans to the world of EVOs or Evolved Humans (ordinary people with special abilities). The 13-episode miniseries will reconnect fans to the first season of the original. After a terrorist attack in Odessa, Texas, the government blamed the EVOs for it and have staged a manhunt for all of those with extraordinary abilities.
There are a lot of similarities to X-Men in this miniseries. The show has always played with comic book tropes and explored ideas that have been done before. However, the show’s creators have managed to put a spin on those ideas. Heroes Reborn will feature characters from the original series like Hiro Nakamura (Masi Oka), Matt Parkman (Greg Grunberg), Mohinder Suresh (Sendhil Ramamurthy), The Haitian (Jimmy Jean-Louis), Angela Petrelli (Cristine Rose) and Micah Sanders (Noah Gray-Cabey). There will also be new additions like Zachary Levi as Luke Collins, a vigilante who will cause trouble for the EVOs. The series will begin Sept. 24 on NBC.
