Kristen Bell, Heroes

Kristen Bell is coming back to give Heroes a jolt.

The Gossip Girl narrator will be reprising her role of the electricity-slinging Elle Bishop on the NBC drama's third season, a network rep confirmed to E! News.

The malcontented character was last seen learning that her Company-leading pop had conducted endless experiments on her when she was a little girl, a revelation that didn't leave her electromagnetic hands very happy.

She then unwittingly saved Mohinder, Molly and Maya from Sylar's latest attempt at mass murder—although she failed to cap the power-hungry psycho—and, touched by Mohinder's gratitude, calmly said, "Cool."

"I’m just happy to be electrocuting people again!" the 28-year-old Bell, who will have another multiepisode story arc, told People.

As originally reported by E! Online's Watch With Kristin, Bell will not be a full-time character.

The third season of Heroes premieres Sept. 22.
