Hollywood superstar Bradley Cooper is returning to television. The “American Sniper” star is joining the television adaptation of “Limitless,” which he starred in the movie version back in 2013.

According to reports, Cooper is joining the CBS series in a limited capacity. He will be reprising his movie role as Eddie Mora. The actor is already in the pilot episode and will be recurring in the series when his schedule permits it.

The drama series will be following the story of Brian Finch, played by Jake McDorman, a character who was especially established for the TV show. Just like Mora in the movies, Finch’s addiction to NZT has boosted his brain power and the FBI seeks his services to use his ability to help solve cases. Finch, meanwhile, remains in touch with Mora, who is already a senator and a presidential aspirant. Mora is still a drug user and has other plans for Finch.

“Limitless” is executive produced by Marc Webb, Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci and Craig Sweeney, along with Bradley Cooper. The series will also star Hill Harper as Boyle, Jennifer Carpenter as Rebecca Tate and Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio as Nasreen “Naz” Awad.

CBS has set “Limitless” in its Tuesday block this coming fall and will follow two of its hit series, “NCIS” and “NCIS: New Orleans,” in the 10:00 p.m. slot. The show’s debut date is still going to be announced later.
