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.
Granted it's way beyond its heyday but was still good.
When do peeps think it jumped the shark? Im reckoning when one of the episodes where the dead bodies sat up and talked about their death....it was daft. Think it was the start of season 8 or 9. The fact they started to really play down Gil's character didnt help either...he was just a grumpy person by the end of it, bit like McDreamy in Greys.
I am glad they are giving it a send off tv movie, and have some of the people that left come back. I'll miss it, though its nice its getting a send off and not just fading out into nothingness.
