CBS announced today that CSI: Vegas has been picked up for a second season. The good news comes a week after the crime procedural wrapped its freshman run. The show performed decently for the network, improving its Wednesday time slot viewership by 60% and faring well in delayed viewing.

William Petersen and Jorja Fox reprised their roles as Gil Grissom and Sara Sidle for the sequel series, which is set in Las Vegas where it all began. Joined by a brilliant new team of forensic investigators in the crime lab, they utilize new techniques in order to serve justice in Sin City - all while facing an existential threat that could bring down their operation.

Unfortunately Petersen will not be returning to his role for Season 2 of CSI: Vegas, though he will reportedly be staying on as an executive producer. Fox's return is still up in the air, and will be determined at a later date.

Look for Season 2 of CSI: Vegas in the fall of 2022.
