Greetings, Fanboys and Fangirls! This is Sam Lascio, reporting the latest news coming out about the new miniseries Heroes Reborn! Ready for this? Ready?! Say it with me now...




Hiro Nakamura teleports to New York City in season one of NBC's Heroes
That's right, everyone. Masi Oka has been confirmed to appear in the new 13 episode miniseries Heroes Reborn as Hiro Nakamura, our favorite bender of time and space. Masi Oka is now the second original cast member from the original NBC Heroes television show to appear in the new miniseries, along with fan favorite Jack Coleman, who played Noah Bennet (aka 'The Man in the Horn-Rimmed Glasses', aka 'HRG', aka the 'Company Man'). Other confirmed actors/actresses to appear in Heroes Reborn (although no other characters have been confirmed) include:
  • Zachary Levi (Chuck, Thor: The Dark World)
  • Robbie Kay (Once Upon a Time, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides)
  • Danika Yarosh (Shameless, See Dad Run)
  • Judith Shekoni (The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2)
  • Ryan Guzman (Step Up Revolution, Jem and the Holograms)
  • Henry Zebrowski (The Wolf of Wall Street)
  • Gatlin Green (Finding Cody)
  • Kiki Sukezane (The Yokai King)
The official synopsis for Heroes Reborn reads as follows:
The saga behind the 2006 breakout series Heroes will continue as creator Tim Kring returns to the fold and develops new layers to his original superhero concept. The highly anticipated 13-episode miniseries 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. The series will be preceded by a new digital series that will introduce audiences to the new characters and storylines that will take the Heroes phenomenon to new places.
 In other words, "Don't worry guys, it'll be good this time, we promise!"
