New Heroes Reborn Preview Focuses on Claire's Death

The mantra for the first season of Heroes was "Save the cheerleader, save the world," but the world will have to be saved by someone else as Claire (Hayden Panettiere) is dead.

The latest Heroes Reborn promo begins with a grieving Noah Bennett (Jack Coleman) looking upon the dead body of his adoptive daughter. How in the world did Claire, who has the ability to heal from nearly anything, end up in the morgue?

In the third season of Heroes, Claire died -- septic shock from a gunshot wound -- when a second eclipse caused her and all Evos to momentarily lose their abilities. But, when the eclipse ended she got her powers back and was able to resurrect herself.

Check out the new promo in the video below.

The saga behind the 2006 breakout series "Heroes" will continue this fall as creator Tim Kring returns to the fold and develops new layers to his original superhero concept. This highly anticipated 13-episode event series will reconnect with the basic elements of the show's first season, where ordinary people were waking up to the fact that they had extraordinary abilities.


The age-old quests burn brightly and a new phenomenon begins when Heroes Reborn premieres September 24 at 8/7c on NBC.
