Dourdan could return to CSI next season
Two surprises hit me when I read this article about CSI at The Chicago Sun-Times: one, Gary Dourdan might return to the show next season, and two, next season could be the last for the series.
As you've already heard, Dourdan was arrested the other morning for possession of heroin, cocaine, ecstasy, and prescription drugs. Seems that the cast and crew have been worried about Dourdan for quite some time and now want to help him even more. I guess sometimes someone has to hit rock bottom before someone intervenes.
But the even more interesting news is that Dourdan might return to the show next season, at least here and there. He was let go from the show a few weeks ago and wasn't expected to ever be on the show again. But now he might be asked back to film some episodes for the (rumored) last season of the show. You would think that suspected drug use and a departure from the show would mean that there would be no chance he would come back, so this is a twist on the usual scenario.
On a related note, a quick plea to CBS: if this really is the last season of the show, could you do me a favor and not replace it with yet another CSI spinoff?
