| Filed under: TV News

We guess she wanted to move on!

CSI: NY's Melina Kanakaredes is not returning to the show after 6 seasons. Supposedly her contract was up and while CBS offered a new deal she wasn't interested.

She says:

"I made some amazing and lifelong friendships during my six seasons on CSI: NY, and I will treasure them forever!"

As for a possible replacement, rumor has it that Sela Ward is under consideration to star opposite Gary Sinise in the show's upcoming 7th season.

She could be good!

And best of luck to Melina!

    SHE WAS GOOD IN THE BEGINNING BUT NOW SHE'S OLD. THE ORIGINAL CSI:LAS VEGAS WITH WILL PETERSEN WAS THE BEST. THE SPIN-OFFS ARE COLOR BY NUMBERS. MEHHH, BORRRING!!!!!

    Greek goddess.
    Maybe her next gig will be kicking JLo's ass for agreeing to perform in Turkish-occupied Northern Cyprus.

    That sucks, she is cool.
    I wish they would bring back the British chick Peyton, she is mesmerizing.

    Really glad to see Melina leaving the show. She was often the reason I didn’t catch an episode.
    Sela Ward is lovely looking and also a much better actress. Ward and Sinise would be an excellent pairing.
    Melina left when CBS wouldn’t pay her what she thought she was worth.
    She’s the reason Providence drew such poor ratings and also the main reason [other then the Danny - Lindsay bubblegum scenarios] that CSI: NY has lagged.
    If Sela Ward does replace Melina, its the best thing to happen to this show in a long time.
    Gary Sinise is the star of the show, he’s still there, and the show will be even better now.

    Not really gonna miss her but Sella Ward?? Not a good replacement. She's too boring. The show needs someone interesting and wild. And please don't replace her with a person with a british accent. Can't understand a word these people say.

    Melina Kanakaredes is 43 and Sela Ward is 54, who is more closer to Gary Sinise's age, probably making a love story more plausible. Melina has a lot of talent that could be used elsewhere.
