Fishburne to leave CSI

Jun 08, 2011 | 5:00am EDT

The Matrix star was handed a lead role in the Las Vegas crime show in late 2008 following the departure of Petersen, but the series has been plagued by plunging ratings over the last two seasons.

Fishburne's contract expired at the end of series 11 and will not be renewed for the upcoming season 12, according to the Hollywood Reporter. TV bosses are reportedly hunting for a replacement for Fishburne to star in the new series, which will kick off in the autumn (11).
