The first season of Heroes is undeniable. It was a huge hit for NBC back when well-produced superhero TV franchises weren’t really as common as they are today. Somewhere along the line, quality waned and the once iconic show was drowned by it’s own ambitions somewhere between Mohinder’s skin peeling off and the show’s very own pied piper (albeit with a violin). After four seasons the show, which had built up such a rich and involving cast of characters, was cancelled. Now it’s back.

NBC will reboot their sci-fi hit with a 13 episode season later this year, picking up five years after where the original series left off (something to do with a giant earthquake and the heroes deciding to expose themselves to the wider world, if our memory serves correctly). The show will welcome newcomers like Zach Levi, Kiki Sukezane, and Ryan Guzman but, surprisingly, it will also feature some characters from the original series.

It’s already been reported that Jack Coleman will be reprising his role as Noah Bennet, but our first real trailer for the show also reveals that we’ll be seeing the return of none of than Hiro “YATTTTAAAA” Nakamura (Masi Oka), who remains one of the show’s most memorable heroes. And it’s looking like we’ll be sticking with the whole seeing-the-future-and-hiro-is-a-badass thing; let’s hope Ando ( James Kyson) comes back to to help supercharge his time warping best friend with that slick red lightning.

NBC’s official description for Heroes: Reborn is as follows:

“A year ago, a terrorist attack in Odessa, Texas, 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”). ”

Heroes will premiere on NBC in September. An Australian premiere is yet to be confirmed
