It is being reported that CBS has cancelled CSI: Vegas after three seasons. The news comes with five episodes left in the crime procedural's now-final run, with its May 19 episode set to be the series ender.

The show has been garnering decent ratings so far this season, but it does rank as one of the least-watched dramas on the network. It appears today's cancellation was needed in order to make room on the schedule for one of its upcoming new dramas slated for the 2024-2025 season.

CSI: Vegas premiered in 2021 as a sequel to the original 'CSI: Crime Scene Investigation' that ran from 2000-2015. The first season saw William Petersen and Jorja Fox reprise their roles as Gil Grissom and Sara Sidle. They were joined by a new team of forensic investigators in the crime lab, utilizing new techniques in order to serve justice in Las Vegas - all while facing an existential threat that could bring down their operation.

Petersen and Fox departed after just one season, though Marg Helgenberger joined the show in Season 2, reprising her role as Catherine Willows. Other characters from the original series have also made appearances.
