The cast of NBC’s Heroes Reborn has grown by one, with Masi Oka signing on to reprise his character from Heroes in this new event series. Oka will once again play Hiro Nakamura in a guest-starring arc when the show debuts this fall.
“I’m excited to return to my ‘Heroes’ roots,” stated Oka. “Hiro Nakamura was such an inspirational role to play, and I’m hoping the fans will enjoy seeing him back on TV.”
“We are thrilled to have Masi back in the Heroes family,” added creator/executive producer Tim Kring. “The character of Hiro Nakamura was such a huge part of the first series’ success, and a gigantic fan favorite. We felt the fans would really love seeing him back in action again.”
Oka joins a cast that includes returning Heroes player Jack Coleman as well as Zachary Levi, Ryan Guzman, Robbie Kay, Danika Yarosh, Judith Shekoni, Kiki Sukezane, Henry Zebrowski, and Gatlin Green. The 13 episode event series from creator/executive producer Tim Kring will once again follow the lives of “ordinary people who discover they possess extraordinary abilities.”
