British actor Robbie Kay, who is best know for his role as Peter Pan in ABC's Once Upon a Time, will join the cast of NBC's Heroes spin-off Heroes Reborn, it has been reported.
Kay will star in the highly-anticipated series alongside Zachary Levi and Jack Coleman. According to Deadline he will play a brand new character, but that's about we all we know for now. The network is refusing to reveal further details at this time.
The original Heroes series chronicled the life-changing stories of a group of normal people who suddenly discovered they had superhuman abilities. Eventually they learned they were part of a grand plan that brought them together to change the world. It's not yet known exactly how the new Heroes Reborn series will relate or work with the original saga.
In my books, the signing of Robbie Kay, who has also featured in the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise and Pinocchio, is a very shrewd move. I think he's one of the best upcoming actors in Hollywood at the moment.
Watch the teaser for Heroes Reborn below.
I can't wait for this to start!
Heroes Reborn will premiere on NBC later this year.
