Zachary Levi has signed on to star in NBC’s Heroes Reborn, EW has confirmed.

A relaunch of the original superhero drama, which ran from 2006 to 2010, the 13-episode event series will feature a brand new story, though Jack Coleman is slated to reprise his role as Noah Bennett, a.k.a. HRG.

“We’re still keeping Zac’s role under wraps because everything is shrouded in mystery for this miniseries, but we’re very excited he’s been cast,” NBC boss Bob Greenblatt told reporters at the Television Critics Associations winter TV previews, noting that more castings will be announced over the next few weeks.

Added Levi: “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. 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.”

Levi’s casting marks a return for the actor to NBC after starring on Chuck. He’s previously dipped his toe in the superhero waters after co-starring in Thor: The Dark World.

As for other original castmembers returning for the relaunch, Greenblatt said, “Jack’s the way in—and I’m not trying to be coy because we just don’t know—but I think you’ll see several of the old cast popping in to episodes.” Who would you like to see return?
