Ted Danson, Elisabeth Shue and original cast members George Eads, Jorja Fox, Eric Szmanda, Paul Guilfoyle and Robert David Hall will all be back for Season 14, CBS has announced. Wallace Langham, Elisabeth Harnois, David Berman and Jon Wellner will also return next season.
“'CSI' is synonymous with CBS, and we are so proud of the series’ creative and commercial legacy and its continued success on our Network,” Nina Tassler, president of CBS Entertainment, said in a statement. "The writers and producers have done an amazing job evolving 'CSI,' reinventing the show around an incredible leading man in Ted Danson, the acclaimed Elisabeth Shue and our beloved and talented core of original cast members."
According to Deadline, Danson renewed his contract with "CSI" for two more years so fans of the series could very well also see a Season 15.
The renewal of "CSI" comes as no surprise (the only question was Danson's involvement) since it's long been a ratings juggernaut. In its current season, "CSI" consistently wins in total viewers and in the key 18-49 demographic in its Wednesday at 10 p.m. timeslot.
"CSI" airs Wednesdays at 10 p.m. ET on CBS.
