In previewing the CBS drama’s new season premiering Friday, September 24, ‘CSI: NY’ showrunner Pam Veasey told Fancast, “Mac’s going through the worthy adversary phase of his career, where he goes toe-to-toe with higher-ups, formidable criminals, or people who test his judgment.”

Among those roadblocks will be Larroquette’s Ted Carver, the Deputy Chief of Manhattan Borough Detectives who made use of his political savvy to rise up the ranks. Carver and Mac will clash during multiple November sweeps episodes when a sniper appears to threaten NYC, EW.com reported.
