McGill has served as co-showrunner since 2010.
Mendelsohn will remain as an executive producer on “CSI” and the upcoming “CSI: Cyber.”
Mendelsohn characterized her “CSI” stint as “a long and amazing journey” in a statement.
“It's been a long and amazing journey and I am so proud of ‘CSI's’ continued success. In handing over the helm to my dear friend and partner, Don McGill, I know he and our CSI team will carry on brilliantly what we've all created together.,” Mendelsohn said. “‘CSI,’ its cast and crew, writers and directors, will always be my family. I have learned so much from each and every one of them. About writing, producing and life. For that, and so much more, I am forever grateful.
The series wrapped its 14th season last month.
The Hollywood Reporter first reported the news of Mendelsohn's exit.
