CSI Cyber Season 2: Peter MacNichol Out, Ted Danson In

at .

With the announcement that the CSI mothership is shutting down, spinoff CSI: Cyber will be going through some creative tweaking.

Earlier today we reported that CSI will be getting an all-star send off in the form of a two-hour movie, featuring the return of Marg Helgenberger and William Peterson.

Now we can confirm there are changes on the way for CSI: Cyber, as well.

MacNichol Danson

Peter MacNichol will be leaving the role he originated on CSI: Cyber, FBI Assistant Deputy Director Simon Sifter. He will not be returning for the series' second season.

Ted Danson, however, will be joining the Cyber team as a series regular. His CSI character, DB Russell, already knows Patricia Arquette's Avery Ryan, as her team worked with him on a backdoor pilot when they were introduced on CSI.

Danson will be leading opposite Arquette beginning with CSI: Cyber Season 2. Is this welcome news, keeping a little bit of CSI alive? Hit the comments to chat about it.

CSI: Cyber Quotes

I thought by now I would be capable of forgiveness. That maturity would lessen the pain, but I was wrong.


Daniel: You are my problem man. It is bad enough that Avery heads up the "It takes a hacker to catch a hacker program." I only support it because she is my boss and I love my job, doesn't mean I believe in it.
Brody: Okay, look I don't want to get in anymore trouble than I already am because of you.
Daniel:Then learn the job, ask questions, listen to intelligent answers.
