As the now-iconic series airs its final two-hour installment on Sunday, several longtime cast members – including original star William Petersen, who returns as Gil Grissom for the finale – gathered recently at the Paley Center for Media in Beverly Hills to look back on the fond memories, famous fans–turned–guest stars (Justin Bieber and Taylor Swift among them) and the creepy forensic details they'll never forget.

When CSI prepares to wrap up its "historic and groundbreaking" CBS run on Sunday, many of the series's favorites are returning, including charter cast members William Petersen as Gil Grissom and Marg Helgenberger as Catherine Willows, to join Ted Danson's D.B. Russell for one last investigation.
"We've told a lot of stories in 15 years. We're trying to complete some of the dangling pieces," says Petersen in an exclusive featurette that goes inside the series finale, appropriately titled Immortality. "We hope that we're able to do this series proud by saying goodbye in the right way."

It's a boy and a girl for William Petersen.
The CSI actor, 58, and wife Gina Cirone welcomed twins via surrogate on July 5 in Los Angeles, PEOPLE confirms.
The pair were born prematurely, Petersen's rep says, but are steadily improving.
"The babies are doing great and are improving every day and we can't wait for them to come home," the couple, who married in July 2003, tell PEOPLE.
Petersen is already dad to daughter Maite, 36, who has two young sons of her own.

No need for fingerprints. A very familiar face has signed on to star in the hit CSI: Crime Scene Investigation this season.
The Matrix's Laurence Fishburne will replace William Peterson, who's leaving the series after eight years behind the microscope, the Associated Press reports.
Fishburne – who earned an Oscar nomination for his portrayal of Ike Turner in What's Love Got to Do With It – said he was "elated and delighted" by the news.

Things are not entirely back to normal on the set of CBS's top-rated CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, which last week was rocked by the firings – and subsequent re-hirings – of costars George Eads and Jorja Fox, who were both reportedly demanding a salary hike.

It's not so much a "whodunit" as it is a "how'd they do it?"

To hear William Petersen tell it, you'd think he would feel better off dead.

REGISTERED: Tori Spelling, 30, and actor Charlie Shanian, due to be married on July 4, are registered at the cooking store Williams Sonoma, reports the New York Post, adding that it had no idea the once-virginal Donna Martin of "Beverly Hills, 90210" was so domestic. Among the items sought by the couple in their registry (despite the fact that Spelling's dad, kazillionaire TV producer Aaron Spelling, could probably afford to buy the entire store chain): mixing bowls and muffin and cake pans.
