Another long-running CBS procedural is downsizing: Sources confirm that CSI: Miami has released Eddie Cibrian (Cardoza) from his contract.

A CBS rep declined to comment, but a source close to the show confirms that Cibrian’s contract option has not been picked up. The actor joined Miami last season — in large part to fill the void left by original cast member Adam Rodriguez (Delko). But with Rodriguez returning full-time this fall, producers decided to put the focus back on the original, core team.

The news comes just one day after CBS’ Criminal Minds announced the departure of series regular A.J. Cook.

Reaction? Will you miss Cibrian? Or are you of the opinion that his character never quite jelled with the team? Sound off below!
