POTATO ON THE GO NEWS FEED (TV):
From creator and executive producer Tim Kring, who imagined the original critically-acclaimed 2006 Heroes series, comes HEROES REBORN, an epic 13-episode event series that chronicles the lives of ordinary people who discover they possess extraordinary abilities.
Fans can look forward to seeing some of the original Heroes cast members return to the series, such as Masi Oka as Hiro Nakamura, Greg Grunberg as Matt Parkman and Sendhil Ramamurthy as Mohinder Suresh.
While the heroes are back to save the world again, it won’t be easy. In a panel held earlier this year, Kring explained that when the sequel series picks up five years after the original, the general population is not only aware of the evolved humans’ powers but discriminating against and hunting them.
The series picks up from a terrorist attack in Odessa, Texas, which 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 (RyaKihlstedt, “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, Matt Parkman, Mohinder Suresh, and the Haitian (Jimmy Jean-Louis), among others. Yet, together, their ultimate destiny is nothing less than saving the world and mankind.
