CBS is giving cheers to Ted Danson, the star of the network's landmark "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation." The former "Cheers" star has been awarded a contract extension, while the series has been renewed for the 2013-14 season.

In addition, the remainder of the cast, including Elisabeth Shue, George Eads, Jorja Fox, Eric Szmanda, Paul Guilfoyle, Robert David Hall, Wallace Langhan, Elisabeth Harnois, David Berman and Jon Wellner will also return to the series, which is in its 13th season.

"CSI is synonymous with CBS, and we are so proud of the series' creative and commercial legacy and its continued success on our network," said CBS Entertainment President Nina Tassler in a statement.

Danson, a veteran of several other series including "Damages" and "Curb Your Enthusiasm," joined "CSI" in 2011 following the exit of Laurence Fishburne, who never really connected with fans of the show.
