CBS announced today that CSI: Crime Scene Investigation has been renewed for a 14th season. Show star Ted Danson's contract was also extended.

"CSI is synonymous with CBS, and we are so proud of the series’ creative and commercial legacy and its continued success on our Network," said CBS Entertainment President, Nina Tassler. "The writers and producers have done an amazing job evolving CSI, reinventing the show around an incredible leading man in Ted Danson, the acclaimed Elisabeth Shue and our beloved and talented core of original cast members."

On the air since 2000, the long-running series still pulls in solid ratings and has spawned two spin-offs, one of which has since been cancelled. CSI will hit the 300-episode mark when it returns for the 2013-2014 season.

UPDATE: Season 14 of CSI premieres on Wednesday, September 25, 2013 at 10:00pm.
