George Eads Set To Leave CSI

It’s hard to believe but Nick Stokes will not be on CSI after this season.

EW reports that George Eads, the CBS procedural drama’s last remaining original castmember will exit the show at the end of Season 15. It is unclear if his departure will be connected to the current Gig Harbor Killer case and if he will simply leave the department or be killed off.

Eads took a sabbatical from the series last year. In 2004, Eads and his co-star Jorja Fox were briefly fired after a contract dispute with CBS over their salaries.
