“There are a few franchises I’ve always wanted to be a part of, and Heroes is one of them,” Levi told the website. “Chuck gave me the opportunity to wield some fun powers, but an entire world with superpowers is a world I’ve always wanted to explore."
No details have been revealed, but the 34-year-old actor is said to play a "key role." Heroes veteran Jack Coleman is the only cast member of the 2006-2010 drama confirmed to be returning.
Levi, who starred for five seasons on Chuck, also played Fandral in Marvel's Thor: The Dark World.
The 13-episode Heroes Reborn is expected to begin production within the next couple of months.
