Another familiar face is returning for Heroes Reborn. Sendhil Ramamurthy is set to reprise his role as Dr. Mohinder Suresh, the geneticist who continued his father’s work after his death, studying the “evolved humans,” in NBC’s revival of the once hit sci-fi series. Deadline was the first to report the casting news.
Ramamurthy is the latest Heroes alum to join the cast of Heroes Reborn. Other returning stars set to appear in the limited series are Jack Coleman (Noah Bennett/HRG), who will be a series regular, and Masi Oka (Hiro Nakamura), Jimmy Jean-Louis (The Hatian), and Greg Gruunberg (Matt Parkman), who will all serve as guest or recurring stars throughout the revival. Deadline does not specify what size role Ramamurthy will have in Heroes Reborn, although it’s more likely than not that he will be a guest or recurring star. The actor confirmed his return for Heroes fans on Twitter, writing to the official Heroes Reborn account that he would see them soon.
