The long-running series will end with a TV movie.
May 13, 2015
CBS has cancelled CSI: Crime Scene Investigation after 15 seasons. On the air since 2000, the long-running crime procedural made a huge impact on the television landscape during its run. The show ascended to the top of the ratings charts, becoming a flagship series for the network and ushering in countless copycat series. CSI became a billion-dollar franchise, winning awards, spawning three spin-offs of its own - CSI: Miami, CSI: NY, and the recent CSI: Cyber - and ending as one of the longest-running dramas on television.
CSI: Crime Scene Investigation will conclude its run with a two-hour TV movie on September 27. Original stars William Petersen and Marg Helgenberger will return to send the series off. Current star Ted Danson is said to be moving over to CSI: Cyber as a regular on that series.

It was done when Ted came on. He acted like the crazy red headed guy on CSI-Miami that I couldn't watch because of his cock of the walk strut. (please)
I assumed they brought the Miami writers over when they started painting Nick as some kind of angry, Goth, biker guy. DUH!!! Had they NEVER watched the show???
I would like to see a new one with Nick and Greg and Sarah...NO TED or the butt ugly blonde that's supposedly hot. (again...PLEASE)
Not talking about the young girl, the old, fugly one.

I really thought this show would stick around forever whether people were watching or not. But I still think this should have happened a while ago.
Btw: So much of it was so fake. My dad is a licensed engineer and I'm a digital artist and between the two of us we were always finding parts of the show to be complete BS. You can't simply "enhance" or "unblur" an image and tons of the tech things they did were total crap. [/rant]

When will networks learn. Never move a show to a different night or time slot. You loose viewers this way. CSI Cyber will never survive on Sundays. 15 Seasons is a great run. In advance of the new Fall season starting, please give new shows at least 5 episodes to find an audience before you cancel them.

I love this show! I am also happy that they do not create any will they or won't they scenes with them - no chemistry just friends/ work partners. That is refreshing in itself

Finally there putting this show to rest. It should have ended 5 years ago at least. Show wasn't the same when Petersen left. I am so happy though that he is coming back for the finale.

It had to happen - the writing was on the wall. But it deserves more than just a two hour finale in my opinion. And bringing Danson over to Cyber seems like they try to shift the fan base to a show that didnÂ´t get of well in the first place. It wonÂ´t help because with or without Danson - Cyber is not CSI.

CSI is so much better than Law & Order, I wish those would go away instead, 15+ years is more than enough of those. Ted Danson coming in was kind of weird, but the storylines got a lot better, although I had only been watching since 2010.

At least they are closing things with a movie...really don't see Ted Danson fitting in with Cyber though

It wasn't the same after Gil left, and hated it when Lawrence Fishburn was on but once Ted Danson came on it got rejuvenated a little. It had a good cast of people the last couple seasons. It was sad that George Eads left. I think that was the preverbial last straw. I'll never forget George's episode being buried alive that was directed by movieman Quentin T.

Great show - but it peaked a few years ago, suffered from unfinished arches and generally became formulaic. The cast was great - every one of them top notch. Sorry to hear of the problem with George Eades - really like him, but when he walked off on his last episode it was clear there was nothing left to salvage and this former juggernaut's batteries were dead.
Loved it though! It successfully brought good scripts to the screen (yeah - there were some stinkers) without over-hyping the technology. I think they actually tried to stick to a higher percentage of reality than other similar franchises. That effort made even their over-reaching seem more believable.
Sorry - but CSI Cyber is a total stinker from the start - not a suitable replacement. How it got renewed (and Battle Creek did not) is a mystery to me.
