The original cast members have signed a new pact with CBS Television Studios to return to the long-running procedural for its upcoming 13th season.
Fox plays forensic scientist Sara Sidle on the drama, a role she first stepped into in the second episode of the Anthony Zuiker procedural in 2000. The actress, who departed the series as a regular in late 2007, returned in May 2008 as a guest star in a handful of episodes. She was later upped to recurring in 2009 and returned to her role as a series regular in July 2011.
Fox’s new deal comes less than two weeks after co-star George Eads re-upped with the studio to return for CSI’s upcoming 13th season.
The billion-dollar franchise saw Ted Danson take over for Laurence Fishburne at the beginning of the season, later being joined by Elisabeth Shue, who replaced Marg Helgenberger. Peri Gilpin (Frasier) will make her debut as the wife to Danson’s D.B. Russell during the Season 12 finale
