The news comes ahead of Chris Hemsworth’s highly anticipated six-part series Limitless.
Launching later this year on Disney+ Originals, the National Geographic-produced show will see the Thor star captured in a series of high-risk situations.
Each episode features Chris traveling the world to explore six different techniques to extend his life: regenerate damage, maximize strength, build resilience, shock the body, supercharge memory, and confront mortality.

Oscar-nominated director Darren Aronofsky and Jane Root served as executive producers on the series in which the star says he acted as a “human guinea pig”.
“Basically, I was kind of convinced to volunteer,” he said in a statement as the show entered production in 2020.
‘[I had to] endure a series of mental and physical challenges around the world, all for the good of science,’ the fan favorite explained.
