*Spoiler Alert: Contains information from Saturday’s episode of Orphan Black*
NBC has announced that Orphan Black’s Dylan Bruce has been added to the Heroes Reborn cast.
Bruce will join Heroes alums Jack Coleman, Masi Oka and Jimmy Jean-Louis, as well as other newcomers to the Heroes cast, Zachary Levi, Gatlin Green and Ryan Guzman.
The timing of this news announcement makes sense, given the fact that Bruce’s Orphan Black character was offed in Saturday night’s shocking episode, in which the character died in a suicide mission.
This news follows last Thursday’s Heroes Reborn news, which was an announcement that Greg Grunberg — best known to us as Matt Parkman — will also be returning to NBC’s event series this fall.
We don’t know much about the Heroes Reborn storyline just yet, but we do know that the series is scheduled to premiere in the fall for NBC’s Thursday night line-up. The official synopsis for the upcoming series reads as follows:
“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.”
