Helgenberger's last episode as forensic investigator Willows took place on 25th January last year in an episode titled 'Willows In The Wind' and her character was written out of the show at the time after she accepted a position at the FBI.

The 54 year-old actress expressed a desire, upon her CSI departure, to be invited back for one-off episodes in future so she could be back for more after her forthcoming appearance. Executive producer Don McGill spoke of the upcoming 300th episode in a statement, reported by TV Line, "We will flash back 14 years to seminal moments that show Catherine, Nick (George Eads), Sara (Jorja Fox), Greg (Eric Szmanda) and Ecklie (Marc Vann) as they were, (and how that) informed the evolution of the characters now. It's going to be a really fun episode, very emotional."

The Nebraskan actress tweeted her excitement towards returning to film with her CSI friends and colleagues:


The new series of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation will start on 25th September with Helgenberger's 300th episode appearance expected on 23rd October.
