Heroes: Reborn: Here's who's not coming back

Heroes: Reborn is bringing back several popular actors from the show’s original cast for this fall’s revival of the pioneering super-hero drama, with names like Greg Grunberg, Jack Coleman and—just confirmed today—Cristine Rose all in.

But there are also a few memorable performers whom EW has confirmed will not be on board.

Hayden Panettiere, Ali Larter, Adrian Pasdar, Milo Ventimiglia, and Zachary Quinto are among those who won’t be a part of the new version, which has lined up a cast of newcomers to the franchise including Zachary Levi (Chuck).

“Everybody who’s coming back has been in the press,” creator Tim Kring told EW. “We have a cadre of characters from the previous that will make appearances—some bigger than others, some just in a cameo way. It will be an interesting use of the older characters.” 

Having said that, the NBC revival is still in production, and it’s always possible an actor could change his or her mind. But according to Kring himself, the announced cast is now set.

As previously announced, Coleman is back as H.R.G., Masi Oka has returned as Hiro, and Sendhil Ramamurthy is back as Mohinder. We can also add that Rose is back as Angela Petrelli. The new cast includes Ryan Guzman, Robbie Kay, Danika Yarosh, Judith Shekoni, Kiki Sukezane, Henry Zebrowski and Gatlin Green.
