CSI: NY Exclusive: Jaime Ray Newman Returns!

Mac will soon receive another blast from the past when Jaime Ray Newman returns to CSI: NY as the detective’s late wife, Claire.

TVLine has learned exclusively that the Eastwick alumna will reprise her emotionally-heightened role in the CBS cop drama’s eighth season finale, which is slated to air in May.

Exclusive: CSI: NY Reunites Former Greek Duo

Newman’s tragically doomed Claire last appeared in the Season 8 premiere, which flashed back to her death in the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

CSI: NY, which last night aired its winter finale (to a slight rise in ratings!), will return with a new batch of episodes in March.

  • CSI:NY is still my favorite of the CSIs, particularly since Sela Ward joined the cast. I hope that it is not cancelled.

  • I really enjoyed her last time she was on. The story line was well played out and very well done. This is one of the most under rated of the CSI’s

  • I really like CSI: NY but it is always on far too late here in OZ, Gary Sinese is way cool! Love it even more this year with David James Elliot appearing every so often! Can’t wait for the new season to commence here in Australia!!

  • I really love CSI: NY and I thought she was great, but come on they have been talking about Clarie’s death since the first season and I’m kind of tired of it, especially since Melina Kanakaredes, left and Mac and Stella never got together!

  • Please don’t worry about it being a soap opera back from the dead thing…he hallucinates her when the episode’s big event happens. I’ll stay away from saying what it is, but that’s basically it.

  • I always like seeing more of the lovely Ms. Newman on my TV, but I’d be more excited about seeing her make a return appearance on Grimm – there’s still some fun to be had with that character…

  • I loved this show in the beginning but the gave up two seasons ago. It needs to go, this is just painful, cliched and more poor storytelling.

  • I love all of the CSI shows, can’t wait till CSI NY comes back at the end of March. I’m kinda tired of the reality shows, especially survivor and undercover boss.
