Welcome to your new home, D.B. Russell.

In this exclusive clip from Sunday’s return of CSI: Cyber on CBSTed Danson reprises his role as a forensic botanist and enjoys a moment of playtime with his new colleague Avery Ryan (Patricia Arquette). 

Russell even gets a little meta in the moment, telling Ryan, “I can’t tell you how much I appreciate having a new chapter in my life.”

Danson created the character of D.B. Russell for CSI in 2011 and was moved to Cyber after CBS decided to bring the mother ship to an end with a two-hour movie last Sunday. Danson has now appeared in three of the franchise’s shows; he also did a stint on CSI: NY.


CSI: Cyber premieres Sunday at 10 p.m. ET on CBS.
