The crime drama, starring Sinise as Detective Mac Taylor, is currently in its eighth season but executives at U.S. network CBS did not renew the series as expected earlier this month (Mar12), leading fans to speculate about its future.
The Forrest Gump star has now spoken out to assure fans the show has not been axed, and urges them to watch the final episodes of the current run.
In a post on his Twitter.com page, he writes, "CSI NY has NOT been cancelled. We are back on the air March 30 with five great new episodes. Tune in."
