George Takei is beaming down to ABC’s The Neighbors.
The comedy’s season finale will see Takei play an alien traveling to Earth with a big announcement, The Hollywood Reporter has learned exclusively.
The Star Trek vet will be in familiar territory playing a star traveler, his character being the father of Larry Bird (Simon Templeman), and grandfather to young Reggie (Tim Jo) and Dick (Ian Patrick).
The Neighbors, which centers on members of a New Jersey family who move into a gated community populated by aliens, will wrap its first season in March.
The Neighbors airs Wednesdays at 8:30 p.m. on ABC.
