Season 10 of "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation" will see Jorja Fox returning as Sara Sidle in multiple episodes. After making a final regular appearance in 2007, the 41-year-old is set to reappear playing her Las Vegas forensic scientist character in the September 24 episode of the CBS crime drama, the television network confirmed Friday, July 17.

"We're thrilled for Jorja's return to CSI," executive producer Carol Mendelsohn shared the good news. She then added, "The viewers and longtime CSI fans will be excited to discover where life has taken Sara Sidle and what brings her back to the CSI team in Las Vegas in our premiere episode." According to The Hollywood Reporter, Jorja will be reprising her role in five episodes of the latest season.

Joining the popular series since the very beginning, Jorja Fox left during the eighth season. At the time, her character suffered from job burnout and thus decided to leave the crime lab to deal with past demons. She made a cameo in William Petersen's final episode back in January as the series shows their characters Sara Sidle and Gil Grissom reunited in Costa Rica.

CBS executives and "CSI" producers are reported seeking to make significant creative changes on the show next season after there was a drop in ratings following Petersen's departure. There is yet word on immediate plans for Petersen despite Jorja's return to the series.

She is ugly and a bad actress. They never should have brought her back. The show lost a ton of credibility by bringing her back. She is really hard to watch. Luckily, they brought in Elisabeth Harnois to balance her out.

What's the point, Sarah told Grissom she couldn't work in CSI anymore and had to leave Vegas, even though Grissom tried to convince her to stay. In the end Grissom left to, and a few months later Sarah has no problem coming back. At the same time Grissom is nowhere to be found, even if he is suppose to be engaged or married to Sarah. Sloppy manuscript

Is Jorja Fox pregnant? Sara is seen side view & even though she has a big shirt opened, there is a noticable bump in her shirt. Take a look & let me know what you think

why would she come back... Grissom is gone so the show isn't nearly as good.
