The CBS drama series “CSI: Cyber” will be bringing aboard a regular from the “CSI” flagship and saying goodbye to one of its own.
Deadline.com reports that Peter MacNicol “will not be coming back as part of tweaks the spinoff is undergoing heading into Season 2.” The move comes as Ted Danson moves to a regular role on “Cyber,” opposite star Patricia Arquette, after his run on “CSI.”
“MacNicol played Assistant Director Stavros Sifter, a career FBI insider and supervisor of Special Agent Avery Ryan (Arquette) for the Cyber Crime Division in Washington, D.C.,” Deadline reports. “Ryan, who didn’t need a boss, will not have one going forward.”
Danson will bring his character, D.B. Russell, from the flagship series to “Cyber.” The report cites sources close to the series saying MacNicol’s exit is due to creative reasons.
