CSI Season 13 Locks up Original Team Member
With each and every passing year, it becomes more and more difficult to lock in the original cast of CSI, and convincing the senior cast to sign new deals has never been more difficult than with Season 13. Many actors and actresses have come and gone in the 13 years CSI has been a part of CBS’s schedule, and only a few can say they’ve been around since the beginning. And somewhat amazingly, in between the last season and the upcoming, the show has so far managed to lose none of remaining original cast, with Eric Szmanda as the latest to re-up.

The news comes from The Hollywood Reporter, and I’m more than a little surprised the show managed to not only lock in Szmanda, but Jorja Fox and George Eads as well. Things could have very easily gone the other way. At any time an actor could decide they’ve taken a character as far as they can and decide to back out, which always leaves a sticky situation behind. When you leave a show in between seasons it means there will be an absence when the show returns that will need to be explained. Those situations are always awkward to get through because you know what’s been happening behind the scenes, making it so no matter what excuse they come up with it sounds forced.
My hope for CSI is if any of the actors decide they want to leave the show they will do it during the current season so they can properly write the characters out. It’s the most effective way to leave and doesn’t let the fans of the show down. Even if you want to leave as soon as possible, not wanting to do an entire season, you can at least show up for a couple episodes at the beginning just to deal with your character’s departure. But for now, that’s future CSI’s problem.
