Zachary Levi Leads “Heroes Reborn” Cast

“Chuck” star Zachary Levi is returning to NBC to headline the cast of its upcoming “Heroes Reborn” revival series.

No details are available on Levi’s character, but he’s said to play a key role. He’s also only the second confirmed cast member along with the return of Jack Coleman as Noah Bennet.

The new thirteen episode event series is said to follow a new stand-alone story arc. NBC will launch a digital series to introduce the characters and new storylines prior to the show’s launch.

In an official statement, Levi says: “One of my first, and fondest, memories of joining the NBC family in 2007 was having the pleasure of getting to know Tim Kring, and the cast of ‘Heroes.’ I was a fan of their collective work and always thought it was such a fantastic and fun world they got to play in. With ‘Heroes: Reborn,’ I’m honored to have the opportunity to bring more of that world to life, and excited to help in offering the fans of the franchise an epic new installation of a series that made such a huge impact on entertainment.”
