'CSI': Jorja Fox Back as Series Regular
CSI is officially welcoming back a familiar face.
Fox first appeared as Sara Sidle on CSI in Season 1 and departed early in Season 8. She returned as a guest star the following season and has remained billed as such through last season.
Ted Danson joins the veteran series’ 12th season as its new team leader – replacing Laurence Fishburne – and also see the drama move from its longtime Thursday night time slot to Wednesdays at 10 p.m. beginning Sept. 21.
Series creator Anthony Zuiker also swapped studios from his longtime home at CBS to ABC Studios.
