"CSI: NY" is going to lose its Stella Bonasera and gain a new leading lady. Melina Kanakaredes who portrays the female detective is not going to renew her contract for another season. No specific cause has been mentioned in her personal statement, but rumor has it she refused to accept a new deal offered by CBS.

"I made some amazing and lifelong friendships during my six seasons on 'CSI: NY', and I will treasure them forever," the actress who played Athena in "Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief" said. Sela Ward aka Stacy Warner on "House M.D." is touted to replace her although no deal has been reached.

Of the high-profile departure, CBS said, "We hoped Melina would return to 'CSI: NY' for another season, but we respect her decision to move on. Her amazing talent and invaluable contribution to the success of the series are greatly appreciated and will not be forgotten. She will forever remain a friend to the network and studio and we wish her the very best."

The last episode featuring Stella has been aired according to EW, meaning there will be no more of her when the show returns this Fall.

I hated Stella and her piece of crap acting. I am glad she has gone!

I have seen the new character on CSI NY and I am disappointed. We will miss Stella. She was a hugh part of the show. It will never be the same and I will probably stop watching the show. It was the same when Grissom was replaced on the CSI show. The show was not the same and no longer interesting. I stopped watching the show. I started from the first episode.

Best of luck to "Stella", but Sela Ward? She's as bad an actor as David Caruso on the Miami Version. No real presence of character from either.
