Well that didn’t take long.
The revolving roles continue on "Law & Order: Criminal Intent" with Variety reporting that actor Jeff Goldblum is leaving the show after two seasons.
Goldblum took over last season for Chris Noth, who left the show after reviving his role of Det. Mike Logan, whom he portrayed on the original “Law & Order” series.
Goldblum’s Det. Zach Nichols helmed “L & O: CI” after the mass exodus of actors Vincent D'Onofrio, Kathryn Erbe and Eric Bogosian. Fans were fairly vocal about the loss of D’Onofrio and Erbe, who had been with the franchise since its inception.
Neither creator Dick Wolf, nor the USA Network have confirmed that Goldblum is choosing not to renew now that his two year deal is up.
So where does that leave us, “L&O: CI” fans? Does this latest news toll the death bell for a show that has a pretty strong core fan base, but has never really been able to pull in big ratings?
