As the top-rating CSI franchise returns to television screens this fall, needless to say, its horde of loyal fans cannot wait to see their favorite forensic experts take on complex cases (as well as each other).  While there have been some changes that aren’t very popular with fans(read: Fishburne in, Petersen out), it’s safe to say that the world’s biggest franchise will still be welcomed with open arms.

First to return is CSI: Miami, which will premiere its 7th season on September 22 at 10pm ET/PT, with an episode called “Resurrection.”  CBS gives us these nail-biting, curious details:

Minor spoilers ahead.

In “Resurrection,” the CSI team will be on the hunt for the person who shot Horatio Caine.  The results, however, lead them to something they didn’t quite expect.  As they follow the trail of evidence, they find themselves encountering some of the most dangerous people in Miami.  As if that wasn’t bad enough, they are shocked to find that one of the folks are actually one of their own.

Among those gracing the CSI: Miami premiere episode is returning cast member from season 6 Elizabeth Berkley, who will play Julia Winston, Horatio’s ex-girlfriend and Kyle’s mother who reappears during the murder investigation of her current husband.  Kim Coates will also be back, as Ron Saris, one of the prime suspects in the shooting of Horatio.  Meanwhile, Evan Ellingson, who plays Horatio’s long-lost son Kyle Harmon. If we look back, Kyle looked for his mother even while in prison.  Also returning is Sofia Milos, who will portray Colombian homicide detective Yelina Salas, also the widow of Horatio’s brother.

CSI: Miami also stars David Caruso, Emily Procter, Adam Rodriguez, Jonathan Togo, Rex Linn, and Eva La Rue.
