Surprisingly little is known about the sequel/reboot of Heroes. Dubbed, Heroes Reborn, the only thing we know is that it will be 13 episodes, there will be a digital comic to go along with it to set it all up, and the one and only Jack Coleman will return as Noah Bennett.
But now, we know at least one of the big characters for the show. Or at least who’s playing them, Zachary Levi.
“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,” said Levi. “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.”
Nothing is known at this time about who his character is, but he will be a “key role” in the mini-series.
