NBC’s Heroes Reborn Cast List, Official Synopsis and Thursday Night Time Slot Revealed

NBC Heroes Reborn Cast List

NBC’s freshly revealed 2015-2016 TV programming schedule shows that the network is bullish on their Heroes Reborn mini-series event given the coveted fall time slot it scored. Additionally the network has revealed the Heroes Reborn cast list and official synopsis.

Heroes Reborn will see three cast members from the original 2007-2010 NBC Heroes series reprise their roles. They are previously announced Jack Coleman as H.R.G. and Masi Oka as Hiro Nakamura. Joining them will be Jimmy Jean-Louis as The Haitian. Unfortunately it doesn’t appear as if Hiro’s best pal, Ando (James Kyson Lee), will make the jump to the new series.

NBC will run all 13 episodes of the Heroes Reborn event series on Thursday evenings beginning this fall. Should Heroes Reborn manage to rekindle the magic and ratings of the original Heroes‘ first season, you can bet NBC will order up an additional 13 episodes for a second season in 2016-2017.

Those of us hoping for Heroes Reborn to resemble the first season of Heroes should be delighted by the Heroes Reborn synopsis, which also includes the full Heroes Reborn cast list.

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.

Original cast member Jack Coleman will reprise his role as H.R.G., Jimmy Jean-Louis returns as The Haitian, and Masi Oka will be back as Hiro Nakamura. Also joining the cast are Zachary Levi (of NBC’s “Chuck” and the Marvel franchise “Thor”), Ryan Guzman (“The Boy Next Door”), Robbie Kay (“Once Upon a Time”), Danika Yarosh (“Shameless”), Judith Shekoni (“The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2”), Kiki Sukezane (“Death Yankee 3”), Henry Zebrowski (NBC’s “A to Z”) and Gatlin Green (“Criminal Minds”).

With the return of “Heroes Reborn,” NBC will launch a digital series prior to the premiere that will introduce new characters and storylines that will take the “Heroes” phenomenon to new places. NBC’s digital platforms, as well as Hulu and video-on-demand, will debut the online prequel to the series prior to the show’s premiere.

Tim Kring, Peter Elkoff and James Middleton will serve as executive producers.

Produced by Imperative Entertainment, in association with Universal Television, “Heroes Reborn” will air in fall 2015 on NBC.
