Melina Kanakaredes Leaving CSI: NY

July 13, 2010 by  

The 7th season of CBS’s CSI: NY is about to begin, but star Melina Kanakaredes won’t be there.

The actress, who portrayed Detective Stella Bonasera for so many years, confirmed her departure in the following statement: “I made some amazing and lifelong friendships during my six seasons on ‘CSI: NY,’ and I will treasure them forever!”

CBS was apparently disappointed by Kanakaredes’ choice to leave: “We hoped Melina would return to ‘CSI: NY’ for another season, but we respect her decision to move on. Her amazing talent and invaluable contribution to the success of the series are greatly appreciated and will not be forgotten. She will forever remain a friend to the network and studio and we wish her the very best.”

So, will you watch CSI: NY sans Stella?

If you’re planning to, don’t forget that it has moved to Fridays at 9.

And what do you think of the swirling rumor that Sela Ward (SISTERS, ONCE AND AGAIN, HOUSE) will fill Melina’s vacant spot?
