Ali Later has confirmed she will not be reprising her role of Niki Sanders in NBC’s upcoming event series reboot “Heroes: Reborn”.
Out doing promotional rounds for the new TNT series “Legends” in which she stars, she tells TV Guide that her filming commitments and lack of desire to return to the role are the main reasons she won’t be back:
“No, At this point, I think I’ve heard that Jack [Coleman] is coming back, but I’m committed to [TNT’s] Legends. I’m on series, so I don’t have the time to work on another project. Not that I didn’t love Heroes and loved working on it, but I’m just at a different stage of my life. I’m super excited and proud to be a part of this show and working with Sean Bean and an incredible cast.”
Larter marks the third member of the regular cast not returning for the follow-up following comments from Zachary Quinto and Hayden Panettiere that indicated they will not be returning.
