Actor James Van Der Beek has been tapped to join the upcoming “CSI” spin-off series, “CSI: Cyber.”.

The former “Dawson’s Creek” star is returning to the small screen in a lead role opposite Patricia Arquette.

Inspired by the work of a real-life cyberpsychologist, the series centres on Special Agent Avery Ryan, played by Arquette, who heads the Cyber Crime Division of the FBI, while Van Der Beek plays Elijah Mundo, an expert in battlefield forensics.

It marks a return to the drama genre for Van Der Beek, who was most recently featured on two comedies, “Friends with Better Lives” and “Don’t Trust the B**** in Apartment 23,” which were both cancelled after one season.

Former “Ally McBeal” star Peter MacNicol and “Community” actor Charley Koontz also feature in “CSI: Cyber.”
