British actor Robbie Kay, who played the villainous Peter Pan on ABC’s “Once Upon a Time,” has joined the cast of NBC’s upcoming 13-episode event series, “Heroes Reborn.” He’ll star opposite Zachary Levi and Jack Coleman. Deadline says Kay will play a new character, but the network is not sharing any details regarding the character at this time.
Kay’s credits also include Fugitive Pieces, Pinocchio and Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.
“Heroes Reborn” will debut this year as a limited series reboot of the popular show. The original series chronicled the life-changing stories of a series of unrelated ordinary people who discovered they had superhuman abilities. As the saga unfolded, they learned they were part of a grand plan that brought them together to change the world.
Prior to the debut of “Heroes Reborn,” NBC is expected to launch a digital series that will introduce the characters and new storylines. Plot details for the new episodes have yet to be disclosed, but the series is said to follow a new stand-alone story arc.
“Heroes” creator Tim Kring is executive producing with James Middleton and Peter Elkoff. Matt Shakman is directing the opening episode. You can watch the teaser that debuted during the Super Bowl using the player below.
