CBS has locked in another regular from the original CSI series to return for season two of CSI: Vegas. Marg Helgenberger has signed a one-year deal to return as a series regular, per Deadline.
Her character, Catherine Willows, appeared on CSI for 12 seasons and will join CSI: Vegas to work alongside the new team played by Paula Newsome, Matt Lauria, and Mandeep Dhillon. Helgenberger’s return comes after Mel Rodriguez and original series co-star Jorja Fox announced their departures in recent weeks. Original CSI star William Petersen reprised his role for the first season but declined to return when the series was renewed.
CSI: Vegas announced Helgenberger’s return on Twitter.
