"With green screen and special effects, it's huge, but it's also very personal," Adrian Pasdar (Nathan) previews of the 2-hour premiere. "It doesn't get lost in the special effects. It's still about human struggle."
"It's fast and furious, with a tremendous amount of action," chimes in costar Jack Coleman (Noah). "We start the season where we left off and it's big."
This means some newbie villains can be expected, but the new season also returns focus to the core characters from season one. Of course, you may find yourself rooting for the "wrong" ones, sometimes.
"Everybody has that capacity for good and bad," Pasdar explains. "There isn't an absolute good or evil. Was King Kong a bad ape? No, he was misunderstood and mistreated. He just wanted that one kiss and to watch the sunrise with a beautiful blonde in his hand. Then he got shot off the Empire State Building! When you can feel empathy for everyone, that's when our show is its most affective and this year, we're going to great lengths for that."
In this vein, fans can expect to learn much more about the Petrelli clan, while also taking a new look at the show's uber baddie, Sylar.
"He's torn in a lot of different directions," portrayer Zachary Quinto says of his character when SheKnows finds him. "This year is about conflict, struggle and restraint. It's a year of growth."
