CSI: Cyber is gathering the best of the ’90s and early 2000s, all in one place.

Fresh off the casting news of Shad Moss (a.k.a. Bow Wow) and James Van Der Beek, EW has confirmed that Luke Perry will be joining the CSI spin-off as former FBI agent Nick Dalton. According to TV Line, Dalton was supposed to be the head of the cyber crime division, a job that subsequently went to the show’s central character, Special Agent Avery Ryan (Patricia Arquette).

The show began as a backdoor pilot in April on the original CSI that focused on Arquette’s Ryan, who travels to Las Vegas to investigate a blackmailing hacker on social media.

CSI: Cyber is set to debut midseason on CBS.
