CBS has ordered CSI: Vegas, a spinoff of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, to series. William Petersen and Jorja Fox, stars of the original CSI, will reprise their roles as Gil Grissom and Sara Sidle. The series is scheduled for the 2021-2022 season. 

The series picks up 6 years after the events of the main ‘CSI’ show finale and will open a brand new chapter in Las Vegas, the city where it all began. Facing an existential threat that could bring down the Crime Lab, a brilliant team of forensic investigators must welcome back old friends and deploy new techniques to preserve and serve justice in Sin City.

Produced by CBS Studios and Jerry Bruckheimer Television, the new series will star Paula Newsome, Matt Lauria, Mel Rodriguez and Mandeep Dhillon. Original star Wallace Langham will return as David Hodges.
