The gritty streets of New York City just got a whole lot sexier.

Ethan Erickson, who guest starred on CSI: NY last year, is returning to his role, Brendan Walsh.

The firefighter will be making flames this time around as he romances Det. Stella Bonasera, played by Melina Kanakaredes.

"I have always been a fan of the CSI franchise. I’ve guest-starred on CSI and CSI: Miami in the past,” Ethan tells the TV Fanatic exclusively.

“It is extra special for me to get to work on CSI: NY, because not only do I get to work with Melina, but one of my best friends, A.J. Buckley, stars on the series, so it’s great getting to hang out with him on set.”

Look for Ethan to heat things up beginning Feb. 19.
