On mid-afternoon Friday (Feb. 19), Rodriguez tweeted "Twit Fam, I have some news that I hope will make CSI:Miami fans happy. Eric Delko will be back to the show full time 4 all of season 9!!!"
He added, "I know I've said it many times but once again, thank u all for your constant support!!! I hope you're all excited about this news!!!"
CBS confirmed the announcement minutes later, also on Twitter.
"CSI: Miami" is currently in its eighth season. Rodriguez was a regular through the first seven seasons, but the events for his exit were set into motion at the end of last season. He's only appeared in a couple recent "CSI: Miami" episodes, while also recurring on ABC's "Ugly Betty."
