Marg Helgenberger (ex-Siobhan, “Ryan’s Hope”) is set to reprise her role as Catherine Willows in season two of CBS’ “CSI: Vegas,” it was announced this morning. She’ll reportedly be a series regular, signing a one-year deal with CBS Studios, similar to fellow “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation” alums William Petersen and Jorja Fox who returned during the new iteration’s 10-episode first season.
In addition to “CSI: Vegas,” Helgenberger is also set to reprise her role as Judge Lisa Benner on “All Rise” when the series returns for its third season in June, this time on OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network.
She’ll be recurring on the series as she was unavailable to return in a full-time capacity due to being in first position for the NBC pilot, “Getaway,” while ultimately did not get picked up by the network. CBS canceled the courtroom drama last May citing low ratings. Wilson Bethel (ex-Ryder, “The Young and the Restless”) also stars.
