The CSI franchise ends after 16 years.
May 12, 2016
CBS has cancelled CSI: Cyber after two seasons, ending the long-running CSI franchise in the process. Cyber was the most-recent and final installment left on the air after other entries were cancelled in recent years.
The hugely-successful CSI franchise produced a total of four entries over its 16-years on the air. The original became a massive hit for the network and paved the way for a slate of related forensic procedural dramas hoping to capture some of its success. Its two following spin-offs - Miami and NY - saw similar accomplishments, staying on the air for nine and 10 years respectively before ultimately being cancelled in 2012 and 2013.
CSI: Cyber was CBS' final attempt at continuing the franchise for a new generation but the show never really caught on with viewers the way the others had. It aired two shortened seasons before the network decided to pull the plug, and with it say good-bye to CSI.

I'm not surprised. The first season was good with concentrating on the cyber aspects. Even though most of the technical stuff was ridiculous, at least it got people thinking about the potential hazards of all things cyber. Then they killed the original CSI, brought over Ted random and changed the entire way they did everything on the show and ruined it. I was never a CSI fan because they mess up everything when it came to anything relating to solving crimes and they'd alter evidence mid way through to fit the story thereby killing any idea of reasonableness. The first season of cyber didn't really do that so much so they had to change it to kill it in season 2.

CSI stands for crime scene investigation and they never really did any actual CSI'ing. Name of the show should have been "FBI Cybercrimes: In the CSI Univervse"

I was a fan but couldn't watch bc dvr only recorded 10-40 min of show due to sports on before going into overtime. I gave up. Shame I really liked Patricia Arquette and Ted Danson

They had some great episodes on this. The one where the mob is attacking over a missing black man , who is not really missing. Was very topical. The rest were mainly computer related crime stories. Still , RIP the CSI, franchise.

Kind of glad to see this go, it was pretty bad. I wasn't a fan of the original either. Besides, the way CSI showed pictures being "enhanced" has been a nightmare for photographers everywhere.

Thank god. I loved CSI, but CSI Cyber was some overhyped, overstereotyped, inacurate garbage..

CanÂ´t say IÂ´m surprised. I personally cancelled this after the 1st season. It couldnÂ´t compare to the previous installations.
