Having made a final regular appearance as Gil Grissom's love interest in 2007, actress Jorja Fox will be making a return to the CBS crime drama for the 10th-season debut and other episodes.
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.
