Heroes’ Greg Grunberg Returning for ‘Heroes Reborn’

According to Entertainment Weekly, another major character from “Heroes” is returning to NBC’s revival “Heroes Reborn.” Read on to know about the details.

Greg Grunberg who plays the role of detective Matt Parkman with a telepathy power is joining the cast of “Heroes Reborn.” He will have a guest star arc on the upcoming series.

Grunberg will joise Masi Oka as Hiro Nakamura, Jack Coleman as Noah Bennet and Zachary Levi.

As reported by EW, Grunberg was interviewed by One Question Interviews  regarding the upcoming TV series if he’s on board in case he gets hired to appear on the show.“Well, you know, it’d be great to use that cop character as an investigative tool to find new people with power. I’m excited as a fan, to see what happens. If I can be a part of this, I would jump at the chance… none of us

“Well, you know, it’d be great to use that cop character as an investigative tool to find new people with power. I’m excited as a fan, to see what happens. If I can be a part of this, I would jump at the chance… none of us have been notified. We have no idea what’s going on. They hinted that they might use some of the old characters to move story and plot. I think the fans or whoever was watching the show before, which was the world, really wants closure. I don’t know how they would do this without using some of the main characters. I hope they include me.”

Aside from that, NBC has also released a new official synopsis for “Heroes Reborn:”

“From original creator Tim Kring, the supernatural phenomenon begins again with a fresh crop of inspiring heroes who take on the ultimate struggle between those with extraordinary abilities and those with nefarious motives to hunt and harness their powers. Epic adventures await these newly empowered allies as they cross paths with some of the original characters (such as the beloved “HRG” and fan-favorite time-traveler Hiro Nakamura), unlocking the mysterious fate of the universe and their place within it. The cast of “Heroes Reborn” includes Jack Coleman, Zachary Levi, Masi Oka, Judith Shekoni, Robbie Kay, Henry Zebrowski, Kiki Sukezane, Ryan Guzman, Danika Yarosh, Toru Uchikado, Eve Harlow and Gatlin Green.”

It would really be nice to see familiar faces on this new TV series, will other cast members from the original series join, too?

NBC hasn’t released yet the official premiere date for “Heroes Reborn” but it is very likely that it will be around this fall 2015.
