New Heroes Reborn trailer unveils first footage

Heroes Reborn has launched a brand new trailer, in which the first footage from the new spin-off series is finally unveiled. And from the looks of what's on show here, things are about to get very dark indeed…

The new series is set in the wake of a terrorist attack on Odessa, Texas, the blame for which has fallen squarely upon our super-powered chums. Forced to go into hiding, they find themselves hunted by Zachary Levi and Judith Shekoni, a pair of vigilantes determined to stamp out super-powers once and for all.

Take a look at the new trailer, below…

While it didn't seem as though anyone was exactly clamouring for a Heroes revival, this latest trailer has actually got us pretty excited for their return, with the promise of a short, sharp storyline as opposed to the occasionally meandering narrative of the original show. Co-starring Jack Coleman, Francesca Eastwood and Noah Gray-Cabey, Heroes Reborn will premiere on NBC on 24 September 2015.
