CBS announced today that a sequel to the hit procedural drama 'CSI: Crime Scene Investigation' has been given an official series order. CSI: Vegas will be part of the network's lineup for the upcoming 2021-2022 season, and some familiar faces will be making a return.

William Petersen and Jorja Fox will be reprising their roles as Gil Grissom and Sara Sidle, back in the city where it all began. They will be joined by a brilliant new team of forensic investigators in the crime lab as they utilize new techniques in order to serve justice in Sin City - all while facing an existential threat that could bring down their operation.

The original 'CSI' premiered over 20 years ago and became one of the most-watched dramas of its time. The show lasted 15 seasons and tallied 335 episodes, earning six Emmy Awards along the way. It spawned three spin-offs, 'CSI: Miami', 'CSI: New York', and 'CSI: Cyber'. Miami and New York found their own success, airing 10 and 9 seasons respectively. Cyber didn't fare as well, lasting only two seasons.
