Zachary Levi to Star In ‘Heroes’ Reboot [VIDEO]

Zachary LeviEveryone’s favorite nerdy spy, Chuck Zachary Levi, is returning to NBC for the relaunch of Heroes, the series that ran from 2006-2010. The reboot is set to run as a 13 episode miniseries that will be a sort of sequel to the original Heroes and will be titled Heroes: Reborn, according to TVLine.

“We are happy to announce this morning that Zac Levi is joining the cast along with Jack Coleman, which we announced a few months ago,” Robert Greenblatt, the president of NBC said in a press statement. “We’re still keeping Zac’s role under wraps because everything about this show is shrouded in secrecy. More names will be announced in the coming months.”

The only other detail about Levi’s role was that his character is “key”.

“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,” Zachary Levi said in a statement. “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.”

“There are a few franchises I’ve always wanted to be a part of, and Heroes is one of them,” Zachary Levi told TVLine. “Chuck gave me the opportunity to wield some fun powers, but an entire world with superpowers is a world I’ve always wanted to explore. I’m so grateful for the opportunity to work with Tim [Kring], and the awesome team around him, in bringing this to life. Moreover, to be working with NBC again is such a reward in itself, as my bonds and relationships there are deep.”
