David Caruso will return to "NYPD Blue," but it's not clear if he's getting more green.

Caruso - the redheaded actor who plays the sensitive, occasionally nude detective John Kelly - reportedly was holding out for $100,000 per episode.ABC said Monday that Caruso had resolved his contract dispute with producers and would be back at work Tuesday.

A network spokeswoman would not elaborate. A spokesman for Caruso wouldn't say if the actor would remain with the series through the 1994-95 season, which begins Oct. 11.

"NYPD Blue" drew a record 26 Emmy nominations for its debut year, including best dramatic actor bids for Caruso and co-star Dennis Franz.
