While “Heroes” fans have been wondering what will become of the show’s resident evil-doer Sylar, “Access Hollywood” breaks some news on the super-powered villain’s future on the show.

Zachary Quinto, who plays Sylar on the hit NBC drama, will return as a series regular next season, a rep for the actor confirmed to “Access.”

As Season One ended, it appeared everyone’s favorite group of mutants might have finally thwarted Sylar’s plans for destruction once and for all as Hiro Nakamura (Masi Oka) thrust his samurai sword into Sylar’s chest.

However, as the show ended, a quick pan back to the scene of the attack revealed a blood trail leading from where Sylar’s body lay into the sewer, suggesting our villain wasn’t quite done yet.

Before he stepped into the breakthrough role as the power-sucking “Hero,” Quinto appeared in guest spots on “CSI,” “Touched By An Angel,” “Charmed” and “Six Feet Under.”

According to his bio, Quinto “would next love to play a young Spock in a the new ‘Star Trek’ movie.”
