In the previous season of CSI: NY, CSIs Danny Messer (Carmine Giovinazzo) and Lindsay Monroe (Anna Belknap) finally took their relationship to another level. Those rooting for the relationship will be delighted to know that two will remain an item in the upcoming season.

They’ll have moments that they share, things that the audience shares with them, but mostly they’ll continue to do their jobs and enjoy working together. And then, ultimately, we’ll find a little skip in there somewhere.”
The recent development in the Danny-Lindsay storyline reiterates the fact that Belknap remains a series regular. An earlier press release from the network stated that for the show’s fourth season, the 34-year-old actress would be among CSI:NY‘s recurring cast only. This, however, was later cleared up by a CBS representative, who assured Ausiello that Belknap is still part of the main
