Hudson also portrayed a detective for seven episodes of Desperate Housewives during the 2006-2007 season; he's guest-starred on numerous shows, including Bones and Private Practice.

As depicted in the Heroes trailer for volume five, the series will introduce a new mythology this fall. It will focus on a traveling carnival of people, all with special powers, led by a charismatic ringleader (Robert Knepper).

Sylar: I wasn't begging for my life.
Sylar: [a suddenly terrified Mohinder steps back] I was offering you yours.
