According to TV Guide, Gary Dourdan just told the producers of CSI that he plans to leave the series. Since the show began in 2000, Dourdan has played the character Warrick Brown.

This is the second major departure this season. As you might recall, Jorja Fox made her final appearance as Sara in November.
