Yatta! Masi Oka will reprise his Emmy-nominated role of Hiro Nakamura in NBC's event series Heroes Reborn, the network announced Friday.

Currently starring on CBS' Hawaii Five-0, Oka will guest-star in the 13-episode series, which debuts this fall.

"I'm excited to return to my Heroes roots," Oka said a statement. "Hiro Nakamura was such an inspirational role to play, and I'm hoping the fans will enjoy seeing him back on TV."

Heroes creator and executive producer Tim Kring is equally excited to have the show's breakout star return. "We are thrilled to have Masi back in the Heroes family," Kring said. "The character of Hiro Nakamura was such a huge part of the first series' success, and a gigantic fan favorite. We felt the fans would really love seeing him back in action again."

Heroes Reborn will once again chronicle the lives of ordinary people who discover they possess extraordinary abilities. You won't see Hayden Panettiere's cheerleader, but original cast member Jack Coleman will appear alongside Zachary Levi (Chuck), Ryan Guzman (The Boy Next Door), Robbie Kay (Once Upon a Time), Danika Yarosh (Shameless) and others.
