Fishburne to stay on CSI

Laurence Fishburne will stay with hit crime drama CSI for at least another season.

The actor has renewed his contract for CSI: Crime Scene Investigation meaning he will continue shooting episodes throughout the 2010-11 season.

The Emmy Award-winner joined the CBS show in 2008 following the departure of William Petersen, debuting on the ninth episode of the ninth season as college professor Dr Raymond Langston.

Since his arrival the show has continued to do well in the US, performing well in its primetime slot midweek on CBS.

Fishburne will also appear in the upcoming Predators reboot by director Robert Rodriguez and Steven Soderbergh’s Contagion alongside Matt Damon and Jude Law.

CSI: Crime Scene Investigation screens Thursday nights on CTV.
