TV News: William Petersen is Back on CSI

Grissom is back on the CSI lab. After departing the CBS crime drama in January 2009, William Petersen will return for an appearance.

He will reprise his role as Gil Grissom with a cameo in an upcoming episode. The actor already shot his appearance on the CBS drama. His return involves Jorja Fox, who plays Gil’s on-screen wife Sara. It’s unclear exactly when he’ll appear back in or around the lab.

As EW reports, the writers paved the way for a possible Petersen return by penning an episode that  introduces Gil’s long lost mother, played Phyllis Frelich. In the Feb. 3 show, a murder occurs at a school for the deaf where Grissom’s mom is a professor. Sara goes to investigate but ends up facing an unexpected challenge — a surprising lack of affection from her mother-in-law. Apparently, Grissom’s mom never felt that Sara was the one for her beloved Gil so the two women have a few fences to mend. The episode also stars Oscar winner Marlee Matlin as a school colleague who not only serves as Mrs. Grissom’s protege but used to date Gil.
