Masi Oka spoke to SCI FI Wire some of what is upcoming in "Heroes" this season, he said: "Season two is going to begin with two parallel timelines going on. One starting four months after the explosion and another—mainly Hiro's storyline - - starting 400 years in the past. And we'll see how they kind of affect each other. There's a princess. Princess Iako, played by [Japanese pop star] Eriko Tamura, who's going to be in that world, as well as David Anders, who plays Takezo Kensei. That was Hiro's childhood hero that he's always heard about these stories. But David Anders, last time we checked, he was Caucasian. So there's a mystery there." The second season starts on Sept. 24 and will air in its regular timeslot, Mondays at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
