If you haven’t had your fill of Jorja Fox’s return to “CSI,” you needn’t worry — she’s not going anywhere soon.
Fox, who initially signed on to reprise her character, Sara Sidle, for five episodes this season, will extend her time on the series for — well, no one’s sure exactly how long. CBS confirms that her run is now pretty much an open-ended commitment, and that it will definitely extend beyond those five episodes.
“The season is about bringing the family back together again, so [this] was just a natural,” executive producer Carol Mendelsohn tells EW.com. “Jorja has been the glue that has really helped to reform the bond of our team.”
Having Sara around more naturally leads to the question of whether Grissom (William Petersen) might also make a return appearance in Las Vegas. Petersen has an open invitation to revisit the character, but at the moment the show isn’t planning for his return. Mendelsohn does say, though, that future episodes will explain Sara and Gil’s long-distance relationship a little bit.
“Everyone on the team is a little interested,” she tells EW. “They’re like, ‘What’s the deal? Grissom’s there, you’re here, how does that work?'”
